Re: Know Your Heritage pt.IV 1980s and 1990's mitsubishi turbo commercials

A friend asked that I post this on DSM talk since I had already provided the links on another forum, so here we go....
As a matter of comparison,

A 1987 pontiac commercial (arguably the most advanced styling of US cars at that point)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sT0II...eature=related

And the 1986 Mustang GT and SVO commercial (arguably the most technologically advanced US sports car at that point (THE SVO)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imKBZ...eature=related

And the 1985 Buick Grand National (the most advanced US muscle car)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drBYWdKDCfg

You can see why mitsubishi was suddenly the obvious choice!
Ahhh the old days... Behold the 1984 DOHC individual Throttlebody 4G63 B by HKS. It produced a "claimed" 270HP at the crank through regulation-sized Individual Throttle Bodies or carbeurators, depending on the series in which it raced, on unleaded gas. This is the same block and head that would find its way, sideways, into the Galant VR4 and 1st Gen DSM thanks to that silly thing called "Homolgation rules" I have old Japanese magazines that quote this motor at up to 400HP in all motor form.

http://www.davewolin.com/starionc.htm
And I quote Mr. Wollin- "Ralliart Naturally Aspirated FIA Race Engine
270 bhp, dry sump, developed by HKS, unique
"The Only One We Know Of Left In The World" "


Here is the history of the 4G63 as found in the startion which made 200 crank HP in single cam, 3 valve form back in 1984.
http://grandjdm.com/2007/10/01/stari...lost-rwd-mojo/

Now, as Mitsubishi retires the venerable 4G63 Sirius motor family and begins a new chapter with the 4B11, it is important that we remember just how ahead of its time the Sirius 4GXX motor family was.

Re: Know Your Heritage pt.IV 1980s and 1990's mitsubishi turbo commercials

The evo wasn't the only thing with a 16G turbo and a massive frontmount.

The FUSO's turbos range from 14B on up to 40V.

Behold the 1992 commercial for the Mitsubishi Fuso Fighter, featuring Mitsubishi's offical 1980s and 90's spokesman, Jackie Chan-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtFeOaJH7PA&NR=1

Diamante and Galant weren't the only 4door V6s in the 1990s mitsubishi JDM lineup. The lancer came with V6 power in Japan in the early 90s, as an option for those who didn't want the 4GXX family turbocharged engine. Here is the 1992 Lancer V-6 commercial from Japan

And for comparison, the competition which the 1st Gen Eclipse GS-T and GS-X (called GSR in Japan) and Galant VR4 had to deal with in Japan at that time:

Re: Know Your Heritage pt.IV 1980s and 1990's mitsubishi turbo commercials

Lol, That starion commercial was REDICULOUS hahaha!

FWIW the pontiac/buick commercials made me want one over a mistu...I guess that reflects on my horribly awesome 80s love/taste.

The stang one was gay....very very gay.

Also, I still want a GTO/3s car badly

Look at things in perspective, In 1984, the Pontiac firebird had a roaring 150HP, 5.0 litre OHV V8, the Grand National had a 200 HP, 3.8 litre turbocharged V6, and the SOHC turbo 4G63 starion 3 valve made 200HP in Japan.

Re: Know Your Heritage pt.IV 1980s and 1990's mitsubishi turbo commercials

And don't forget, the 80's and 90's Mitsubishis had "badge-engineered" clones, or sister cars. These cars bore slight cosmetic differences, but were mechanically identical to their Japanese sisters.

Shall we start with the 1G DSM?
