Musta lost my previous topic, but anyhow, I picked up a way overpriced 1987 mirage turbo awhile back. It was a original turbo car swapped iwith a 4g63, and the work was so bad, I decided to pull the entire engine and trans along with the wiring harness.
This is is basically a rebuild thread of the 63 swap cleaned up and done proper without melted wires and oil and spheghetti wiring everywhere.
PIcked the car up for waaaaaay too much, but I really wanted a second gen 87 mirage turb body, so I bought it.
Had a galant vr4 swapped engine, with a chinese 20g, a safc, and some chipped ecu. Everything in the engine bay is coatedwith oil, the car ran like complete shit, throwing codes etc... It has more silicone couplings on the intercooler piping than the govt has conspiracy theories....
Nice lot of random wiring and misc melted wires... typical hack job these days I guess.
After troubleshooting the mess a bit, decided th engine needed t bepuld, and baialy rebuilt, along with a complete rewire with a new wiring harness, and real mitsubishi parts.
First step was to pick up a real mhi evo 3 16g. It should be perfect for a 1800lbs fwd car.
Second step, pull the engine and trans, which is where I currently am.
