    I know its been asked over and over but I cant find a thread for putting a 63T in a front wheel drive lancer.

    What engine and gearbox do I use to in my 91 CB GSR fwd. Do I use my 1.6 litre box or is there a box I should be using? If I use my 1.6 box can I use the 63 flywheel (asking as I just got a clutch for a 63T but diameters are different 200mm on 1.6 225mm 2.0)? What should I get the engine out of?

    A 4g63t from vr4 galant, RVR or evo 1-3 is the go. Also an evo/vr4 box locked to fwd. Meek can do that service for you. I dunno if RVR boxes will work. Don't see why not. Also have been told that 4g93t boxes from GSRs will work if locked to fwd. Don't use an NA box. Bang.

    I'm planning on a vr4 motor and box if they bolt in easy enough. How do I lock the box?

    Witha locking kit from Meek. Or give them the box and they'll do it for you.

    Where are they located I'm in tassie? Could I use my gearbox and are the flywheels the same size between 61 and 63 if they aren't can I use the 63 flywheel?

    Can I use 63 cams, springs and retainers in my 61? Unsure what cams exactly they are jun but my brother is trying to find the specs.

    Also don't know. That's about where my g63 knowledge ends. Mikey (evl20t) is who you wanna talk to

    no you can use the awd 4g63 fly in a fwd case (it's too thick) you can try robbing one from a hyundai sonata gc4p.
    also you'll have to use a gsr or evo gearbox (vr4 doesn't mount the same way)

    Can I use a galant vr4 ecu in my lancer to run the turbo stuff?

    I used a CB GSR box with a 4g63t, engine was a galant vr4. Short ratios mean it's very responsive, not great for economy drives but, the downside is you use the 4g61 engine plate, flywheel and clutch assembly. That gearbox withstood some incredible abuse and never failed once. All mounts were a straight swap, I ran an after market ecu, but I'm sure you could make a factory ecu work.

    I've done a G4CP swap about 2 weeks ago but now I want to turbo it with evo 3 spec stuff. I'm hoping I can use a vr4 ecu if its a straight plug in, add some wires and go.

    Nice looking car you've got. Mines looks pretty much the same but its grey with no spoiler (took it off) and has jdm front corner lights.

    This was moved on years ago unfortunately, was a great daily etc. Unsure about compatibility between VR4 and Hyundai ecu.

    If the timing and intake/exhaust is the same, injectors are the same (evo 3 (510cc) and vr4 (450cc) injectors are not the same), turbo is the same etc then theoretically it should work. Compression is irrelevant. I know nothing of what Hyundai did do the 4g63 in their own cars but a look at the ecu map/wiring should clear up a lot of questions if you know how to read them (I don't).

    I found a post on another forum where a guy safely ran 18psi on his stock g4cp using evo 3 stuff and all i want is about 10psi so it should handle it fine. i reckon ill just bite the bullet and get a haltech.

    I've decided to keep it N/A and work the top end and get it breathing nicely so a 4G64 swap in the future will be easier.
