76,000 miles on the legendary 4G63 shouldn’t be bad at all. Keyword: shouldn’t. But we all know that track miles are like dog years, so in this case Roncar’s car has like 300,000 miles on it. How bad can it be?

We brought it to our friend Roni Almasi’s shop - aka Speedlab Inc - to find out.

Shout out to Roni for the knowledge drop!

Alright youtube CSI investigators, pause at 18:37 and tell me what the secret sauce is... I'm hoping it's a supercharger kit.

@Alpha Werks ​ Whilst not pure supercharging, take a look at Norris Design and their twincharge kit for the 4g63. Supercharger properly disengages as the turbo takes over for a linear 20+ PSI from 2k RPM. Looks very, very impressive.

08:20 No no no. What is this guy even talking about? By altering the combustion chamber you are NOT changing the engine's displacement. Like, that's not at all how that works. 06:31 The way phrased the harmonics thing was totall wrong. A four cylinder has absolutely ZERO primary imbalance. Their first order harmonics are literally perfectly balanced, by desing. Any primary imbalance an inline four engine WOULD have, comes from bad manufacturing tolerances. You mainly need to worry about secondary imbalance, as with all inline engines. But saying that on an inline four, you need to worry about imbalance, especially BECAUSE it is an inline four and has "harmonics", is dead wrong. This dude is very clearly out of his depth.

it wasn't real clear but the dude looking at the bearings pulled the thrust bearing closest to the 4th cylinder, which is the non thrust side in an Evo because they have a pull type clutch. So the thrust side showed more wear, not the non thrust side.

The first actually fast car I ever drove was my buddy's AWD Talon back in the late 90's and it was in the 10's back then which for that time was insane, I had a 5.0 2 years later that ran 11.2 at 120mph and it was faster then damn near every thing at the track but the Talon put it to shame

8:12 not only are you increasing the displacement you are also increasing the min volume of the cylinder (decreasing the max pressure also other variables constant). I feel like you would need to counteract this maybe they do it by running more boost.

Ron don’t go with a moroso pan, the moroso has fit problems and is focused for drag racing and acceleration load not cornering and track racing. Go with a racefab pan, it will actually address the issue which is oil slosh away from the pickup by surrounding the pickup with a diamond shaped offset baffle

Good one Ron. The focus part cracked me up because it's hard to capture fine details on video in the moment. I imagine it would be a bunch more editing, but taking some 'beauty shots' that you could voiceover in those spots might be helpful. cool video with good information and had a chill vibe to it.

Basically an entire video proving: Why you never want to buy a Mitsubishi vehicle or associate with any person who has such a sickness. If you're a mitsy-bitsy guy reading this, you're in my prayers. I'm sorry you have to deal with this shit. There's help out there for you though. Hotlines you can call. You don't have to continue hurting yourself anymore. There are more enjoyable cars to waste money on, and healthier people to be friends with in this world. Don't sell yourself short by associating with Mitsubishi cars or people. - This has been a public service announcement -

"Increasing the volume in combustion chamber increases the displacement of the engine" BS. It only decreases the compression ratio. Engine displacement comes from cylinder bore x stroke length. No other factor affects on it.

This is why I ignore mileage on a car when I go to buy one, especially considering I drive some damn clapped out pieces of shit. Hell, the nearly 250k mile 1.8 liter four banger in my 2000 Nissan Sentra is probably in better shape than this engine, had the valve cover off and the cams don't even look worn with 245k on the clock. And it's a 5 speed, so you know it's been abused at some point, and continues to be abused for that matter.

Poilishing and reshaping the combustion chamber doesn't increase displacement. It increases chamber volume, which lowers the compression ratio.

For an "engine builder" this guys uses the word "actually" too much, also increasing chamber volumes in a head decreases compression ratio, has no effect on displacement. Other than that he seems alright....

how does removing head material in the valve area increase displacement? the would lower compression.
Victor Verhagen
Victor Verhagen 27 kun oldin
8:16 is wrong, eliminating material from the head doesnt increase displacement, it increases non-displaced volume, so it actually lower the compression ratio. Which might be a good thing for turbo engines mind you, you can turn up the boost a bit higher before detonation occurs.
AUSTIN 27 kun oldin
8:00 LMFAO removing material from around the valves does not increase the displacement, only allowing the piston to move up and down further or making the piston bigger increases displacement. by removing material from the combustion chamber what you are doing is reducing the static compression ratio
AUSTIN 26 kun oldin
@Vivid Media it also wasn't sitting on any type of fixture that could be assumed to be even close to perfectly square. I would assume that 99% of the runout he found was due to that crankshaft saddle he was using to hold it on the bench.

Was thinking the same thing, and the part where he says the crankshaft is bent isn’t necessarily true, it could have also been out of round

Well that engine “builder” kind of seemed all over the place to me and like he wasn’t very knowledgeable but that’s okay. Probably just misspoken but the chamber mods they did were getting rid of a phenomenon called machinist ridge which impedes flow through the engine and even though it would decrease compression ratio depending on cc removal in chamber I’m sure you would be advised to either get it back and then some by either milling the head, increasing stroke, getting valves with no reliefs, increasing dome on piston and fly cutting for valve clearance, and so on.

I'll be the guy to say it: Ron, you need to work on your camera skills. The camera isn't at fault, the frequent camera movement and Roni constantly moving parts and putting his hands in the frame is really screwing up the focus. Just some constructive criticism. Still looking forward to more videos!

Hold up. If you’re removing material from the combustion chamber you’re not increasing the displacement, you’re increasing the volume of the combustion chamber, thereby dropping your compression ratio a bit.
