Have a 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse with a 1.8L 1775cc. I'm thinking of putting a bigger motor in. Can I go bigger horses with out changing the transmission,bell housing, or motor mounts? Would like to put in the 2.0L with MFI-Turbo it puts out 190 horsepower @ 6000rpm.
Well you can do it for alot cheaper then buying a gsx or gst if you do the labor yourself but you have to use a turbo trany and cv shafts and ecu and resister pack then run a new exaust and intercooler piping and well i wrote a 106 page manual on how to do it but its hand writen i can type it up but seriously u need to have this done by a pro some one who has done it before because one slip up and your car may never run again and im not exagerating a 2.0 to 2.0 turbo conversion isnt a walk in the park but a 1.8 to 2.0 turbo conversion is an auto techs worst nightmare disecting and re wireing the engine harness alone is so confusing that most tech cant do it and the ones that can wont the best thing is to buy anothe car but the cheapest is to do the conversion the choice is yours but i warn you dont think its gonna be easy and dont think your looking at a weekend job this takes alot of time if you want to do it right

It will not directly bolt. 2 different engine were in those cars. Check this link for more info. You have a 2nd Gen, and you are wanting to put a 3rd gen motor in it. It can probably be done with some fabrication.
Im going to guess that you have the 420A engine 2.0L 4cyl non-turbo engine. They make the turbos for your car for the ones that come with a stock turbo that means that yes you can add a turbo. BUT it also means thats not the only thing your going to have to do to it. Better heads for the heat and power, bigger exhaust, FINE tuning so you dont blow your engine. It will eventually get pretty pricey, i recommend trading for a model with a stock turbo since adding a bigger faster turbo is a much easier and cheaper process.
On just about all vehicles excluding those with rear seat mounted batteries...if you open the hood and follow the positive battery cable off the battery, it will lead you directly to it, most cars have the solenoids mounted on the top of the starter motors, others like Ford and some Mopars may have a seperate solenoid mounted on the side of the engine compartment real close to the battery.
i don't know if you went back to look at my post, but i fixed my car by putting in a new slave and new master cylinder and then tightening up the clutch petal. it does NOT grind anymore! and my baby is like new! it cost me about $90 through napa auto parts. $66 for the master and $16 for the slave and it comes with everything you need. hope this helps you!
I had this issue and there wasn't anything wrong.. take off the battery cables for 5 minutes and then put them back on. If you put it back on and the check engine light doesn't return, it was probably just a sensor wanting you to replace something after a particular mileage. However if you does return, probably need to take it to a mechanic to get reading of the codes, or you can do this with a analog voltage meter.
Warning: unplugging your battery cables will most likely delete all your radio stations... lol
just jack up and remove the driverside motor, just put a piece of lumber between the jack and oilpan, then raise up alittle unbolt front and rear motor mounts should come out easy, then replace and drop engine back into place, its alot easier than one would think, good luck
