Hi guys!
I'm leaving in other country (El Salvador).

I'm going to rebuilt my Eclipse 92 4G37 that has 91k! yeah yeah, is not to much for the age it is :) , anyways. . .

I wanna change all for new you know (new pistons, rings, new water pump, new oil pump, new radiator, the cylinder head is a mess I think has been overheated but is not f*ck up at all becacuse the car is still running, so I wanna change all the intake & exhaust valves, springs, hydraulic lifters well almost everything etc etc... )

I have been reading some other posts and I know that I can't do to much I don't want a turbo just need to know what other kind of things can I do, so I really need some advices from you guys

Well I just wanted to ask you guys, what other kind of things can I do to give my engine a few more HP ?

Because I'm new I just know of
- changing the Intake
- a Header (but I don't know if there is one that fits exactly ?)

P.D: All the new items, parts etc I'll buy them In some place In Lakeland, Florida so I just wanted to make you know, and I have been watching some stuff over here: http://www.store.partsdinosaur.com/page142.html thanks for reading :)

WHen you have a chance research on here these users.... they have (or had) very "potent" 1.8's at some point in time...

Check all the threads here on this main page. Take advantage of the newly found cam choices, cam gear swap, Cyclone 12v head, under drive pulley, intake setups, and anything else you can find. There was a good write up on 1.8 vs 2.0 VCE around either site. It is very easy to make the 1.8's 2.0 quick.

Did you read em all already? There has been some ground breaking solutions to the SOHC motor. Finding that Cyclone head is gonna be your biggest challenge. Join 1.8's too!

You knew Saturdaynight? I have only had the privledge to read his stuff. As what I gathered he thought the same as I. I haven't had the pleasure to colaborate ideas and concerns with him directly.... Sandcobra used to be on here all the time. He actually helped me out alot when I was a newb. Now I can rip apart a 1g DSM in minutes lol. There is this other guy that joined named Kronus (?) from the Philipeines(?) and apparently he has been building 4g3 motors since the 70's. He says he has a Galant that runs 13's on a 4g3 motor... I didn't even believe that!

Lmao ground breaking???

Upgrade to mechanical lifters (the hydrolic lifters suck)
Do a FULL balance shaft elimination (Think i might just be the first on this one)
All Free mods
Advance your timing + run higher octane gas
2.0n/a or 3kgt throttle body
2.25 exhaust piping

Most bang for your buck right there. And it'll be a whole new car.


As for that new guy over there krunos, i think its kinda fishy that after i tried using those 4g15 rockers he said worked, and posted about it, he kinda just disappeared.

Kronus ended up moving to a place where get gets internet maybe like 1 time out of the entire month, and I think he's actually out of the country right now. If we're thinking of the same person he ended up swapping out his 4G37 for a 4G63T, and later ended up trying to sell it(can't remember if he sold it or not) because he had to move/go play in the sandbox.

Abnormally eh...:p tell me about these kills.

Actually Kevin/Kronus is on his mission right now. He is a Mormon or whatever the PC term is these days. He is in SoCal and like Cory said only has access to the web periodically. I think you guys might have him confused with someone else, he is around 24yo and lived in Northwest Missouri.

Yeah! I knew it was something like that, but couldn't remember specifics.
