So the kit matches oem quality or do you have a better brand in mind I could try?

I would feel less confident with that than OEM. OEM typically uses much more reputable brands. I'd look for a better specific one for you, but lack the signal strength right now to do much

I did it two years ago and it was $350 USD for a non boosted tune
It’s more for boosted tunes

Plus u need a Tactrix Openport 2.0 which is $179

Lol honestly I thought you were a 16 year old kid with his first car, and that’s totally ok, we respect everyone here and accept everyone

You just seem really into wanting to boost your car which is fine I just didn’t want to see someone young and inexperienced without a lot of $$ to complete a feat like that to go down that rabbit hole and end up with an incomplete build because they ran out of funds, didn’t know how to do it properly, etc

But we’re always here to help bro

I’m just gonna tell you that while our car can be boosted and some have, its gonna cost like $3,000 and require some custom fabrication and welding to make all the parts let alone hook it all up and make it work and properly tune it etc, it’s way harder than even getting a premade turbo kit and slapping it on an old Honda Civic for example

It’ll probably be easier if you wanted a boosted car to just buy a turbo car that was turbo from the factory, that’s what I did; Eclipse is my reliable daily driver with good MPG with minor bolt on mods, my WRX is my turbo from factory toy with a lot of mods

Honestly... i would end up spending 5-6k for a 2G GST anyways. Im not ready to boost because im learning. And i read around here that if i cant tear down the engine on my own then i shouldnt even go into deeper waters with a turbo. Saber mentioned he's working on a turbo for us GS owners and if he can fabricate a stable set up for bone stock 4G69 engines then i would definately save to buy it. I honestly want my 2nd car to be more family friendly. So my GS is my DD but i only drive it for as long as i get to be home. Being a trucker doesnt leave u with alot of home time. Have you watched that RRE video of that blue 4G GT on the track?

Well my eclipse was wrecked and I got it from Copart insurance auction and fixed it myself

Got my 02 WRX cheap too and fixed it up myself

There’s deals to be had out there with a little DIY elbow grease to get something like an old WRX or something cheap that has some minor required fix up work

I just think putting a turbo on a non turbo car like ours is 1) NOT a diy task or cheap and 2) will highly diminish the reliability of your car as a reliable DD as they are stock

I see your point. That's why i want to know how to pull our engines appart and put it back together. Wether i go turbo or not i want to be able to fix it and not just do what most ppl do because they lack the knowledge. Junk the car or sell it.

What mods do u have on your car right now?

Why do you want to pull the engine apart right now? If it’s not knocking or burning oil real bad with blown rings or down on compression then there’s no reason to tear it apart NA without boost once again as these engines are actually very durable and well built, no reason to tear a 4G69 apart unless you’re trying to build it up for more boost, it can even handle moderate boost stock pretty well with proper tuning, naturally aspirated there’s no reason to upgrade its internals IMO; I’d be more worried about the transmissions in these cars holding together than the engine to be honest with you

This 4G69 4 cylinder is the successor to the legendary 4G63 and 4G64 engines from Mitsubishi which are known as some of the best tuning and modifiable and well built engines ever, along with the LS GM (Corvette), EJ Subaru (WRX/STi), RB Nissan (Skyline and Silvia/240SZ), B20 and K20 Honda, and 2JZ Toyota (Supra) engines

Kyle, why do you worry about the transmissions so much? Aside from the GS auto, when have you heard of common issues. You'll definitely wreck the motor in a GS or GT on any of those other transmissions before the trans goes. But, that said, 500hp has been done on a stock GS motor, and 460 on a stock GT motor. Guys have put a 175 shot of nitrous through a GT with an auto and been ok

I’ve auto heard of people with the manuals that the shift bearings go out and it’s a discontinued part

That's pretty rare, and bearings of the same size from other Mitsubishi parts such as the Evo transmissions will still fit. The synchros die often in the manuals, but that just makes for notchy shifting. I killed mine with Royal Purple 3 years ago, and still race the car on the same trans.

I haven't observed any issues having raised the power, nor has anyone I've seen who didn't use a Lancer differential (those DO die very easily, and our GS manual trans is a common upgrade for high power FWD lancers)

It's chemically not safe with our synchro brass alloy. Dissolves the surfaces. It says on there it's brass safe, but it's only a few brass alloys, and turns out it's long known in the Evo community as not safe in Mitsubishis

Interesting

Never bought RP myself but found some 75w90 gear oil and 5w30 engine oil in the trunk of my WRX from a previous owner, maybe 2 owners before me as the last guy said he used Rotella T6 5w40

Full bolt ons. I recently changed my transmission oil and i used redline for the same safe reason Saber stated. Copper parts in our MT. As for the engine question is just to have knowledge and be able to repair my own engine.
