    ya sure...
    btw do u have auto or manual tranny... mine is auto so u can imagine performance
    well G493 produces something arnd 110 HP...
    well turbo version of 4G93 1.8 is also there... but i have no idea how much alteration will be required for that...
    4G63 SOHC(2.0) is another option but its pretty much expensive...

    and wat is ur range for the swap ?? n how much the 1.8 swap costed ur friend ... did he do a suspension upgrade aswell

    why dont u try some performance filters etc... dont forget that mits is not as light body as corolla or baleno...

    I will not recommend engine swap, instead get it overhauled properly. Overall it is a good car, bring it to the original shape else buy something else. Engine swap will badly effect the resale which is still not so good.

    @enigma... beside resale... is there anyother point in favor of overhual... any personal experiences

    with lancer one doesnt expect much resale either...

    i think there is also something with this auto tranny... was reading somewhere dat INVECSII trannys limit performance... n i think ours are these... may be INVECSIII CVT can also fit in but finding these is another thing...
    n atleast i dont wana go manual again...

    btw wats the max speed you got now (CNG/Petrol)...
