I decided it would be a good idea to compile an as complete as possible list of Mitsubishi engine codes. This way when someone asks, "What the heck is a 4Gxx?", we might actually have an answer. As of yet I don't know how extensive the info on each motor should be, so I'm open to suggestions. I also don't know if I want to list every possible variant of each motor, since something like the 4G63 has a lengthy list. The list will be far from complete from the get go, so please feel free to post a motor and all the info you know. Also, feel free to correct any erronious info, just don't get offended when it gets deleted after I use it.

For Starters: Reading Mitsubishi Engine Codes.
Here's a breakdown on what some of the engine codes look like and mean.

Example: 4G61T (1.6L I4 turbo motor in the Colt/Mirage turbo)
4 = 4-cylinder
G = Gasoline, Iron Block. (D = Diesel ie 4D65)
6 = Engine Series
1 = Engine Model (Doesn't equate to capacity, as a higher number can belong to a lesser cc'd engine.)
T = Turbo (This is more of an adopted addition to the engine codes, rather than an official part of it. The official way Mistubishi will list the motor is "4G61 Turbo".)

Example: 6A13TT (2.5L V6 twin-turbo motor in the Galant/Legnum VR-4)
6 = 6-cylinder
A = Gasoline, Aluminum block
1 = Engine Series
3 = Engine Model
TT= Twin-turbo

According to this, my Colt is:
Mitsubishi (correct)
A 3 door sedan (wrong) It's a 3 door hatch
with a manual transmission (correct)
A Colt or a Lancer (correct)
Has no engine (wrong) It has a engine, and the code in the VIN is 58 which means 4G67
Is a passanger car (correct)
Is a MY 1992 (correct)
Was assambled in Mizushima (correct I think)

The number is JMBMNC58ANU******

'92 Colt GTi 1,8 - Green - Blown engine (15.779 @ 85 mph before that)
'92 Colt GTi 1,8 - Grey - Bented valve or something.. runs fine, no power loss, but strange sound.
'90 Eclipse GS 2,0 - Parting out.

Has no engine (wrong) It has a engine, and the code in the VIN is 58

If its a 2 door hatchback, that is in fact classified as a 3 door. The hatch counts as a door, since it opens and closes. Somewhat like a door... same with hatchback 4 door cars, they call them a 5 door. Its kind of wierd, but thats how they do it. So the only thing that is wrong is the engine part.. but there is just some sort of mistke there.

Try to check your VIN there - http://www.dsm-garage.ru/mmc.html
Just type VIN number and click the knob.

Sorry, it is in russian :) Translation keys are here:
"- нет" = "there is no"
"- есть" = "there is"
I suppose Free Website Translation service will help:
