    mitsubishi make a lot of really really good engines, e.g. the mighty 4G92 mivec - Holy smokes that thing can run like a scalded cat. -sounds cool too.

    Or the all famous 4G63 turbo.

    the good thing about mitsi is that they are modular build - meaning most parts follow similar design.

    Ditch the idea of a wheezing 4AFE or something like that. Go for the real stuff - like a 4G93 standard (not GDI) or a 92 mivec.. 4G63 (SOHC) - they are really strong engines.

    the engine cokes up internally and then requires a major teardown to resolve as the crescent shape of the pistons require them to be sparkly clean for the engine to run.

    That sort of fuel is not available in Pakistan.

    very neat and very beastly

    that is a simple 2.0 turbo engine that defies the laws of "automobiles" - its a monster - If you swap this in FWD form - you firstly would have to change the clutch plate every week and then try to handle wheelspin till 3rd gear - and buy tires every 2 weeks.

    They are great for lean burn and good fuel economy with exceptional low rpm torque. Sadly the fuel used to run them does not exist in Pakistan and neither does the cleanup tools that are used every 25,000 kms.

    Your idea of putting in a Toyota engine is quite practical. It will be easy to find one, there are plenty of options available. Its easy to work on, mechanical and electrical fitting wont be too much of a problem. It will be reliable and fuel efficient, and in case something goes bad, parts are cheap and easily available.
    While the mitsubishi engines mentioned here are good too, they are not feasible for the exact same reasons stated above... not too many to choose from...experts not available. ..fuel guzzlers...and parts are scarce.
    Dont be tempted by the evo half cut. As much as it is appealing, it has the apetite of an elephant. You will love the power but can you afford 4km/l average?
    If your car is intended for daily use, go the conventional way... there will be modifications required for the Toyota motor but once everything is properly set up, the engine is defimitely going to give you years of reliable pulling.. it might just outlast the chassis.

    if you want to run a toyota 4AFE then sell the lancer and buy a corolla and stick the 4AFE in there, half n half swaps are always a headache - specially for someone who does not know how engine mechanicals and electrics work. The swap services offered in Pakistan are for cut/weld/hammer the engine in place and the "lektrishann" then wires up a few wires and you are sent home.

    When asking them to sort out problems of fine tuning - you will get an answer of "altarr gaadi mein ye hota hai"

    umm - I dont think anyone in their sane minds suggested the evo engine for this guy, in FWD form - it requires a heck of a lot of insanity just to drive it that way and we yet have not started on how to muck around with the centre diff.

    There are a few people in Pakistan who have converted their lancers/colts/galants in VR4s and makedo evolutions but they had to spend about near to Rs 400,000/- just to complete them.

    The mivec engines are like Honda VTEC on steroids - FWD and easily workable if done by someone sane. Its not a "hammer job" engine.

    I agree. No doubts about the capabilities of mivec.
    I am only apprehensive that mitsu mivec may not be easily available. The lancers imported in Pakistan had 4G13 and 4G18 engines which do not have vvt. Even the JDM lancers are non vvt.
    So while a lot of enthusiasts import evo set-ups for their lancers, other mitsu engine options remain scanty. But yes, there's no harm trying luck finding one.
