I got a AEM universal FPR with a gauge for around 220$ shipped (via UPS)
Expensive but quality is awesome.
I dont think its the fuel rail. Its the headers. My fuel rail throttle body etc are all from the DOHC. In short my car is exactly the DOHC you get outside minus just one or two rubber hoses. Just need a fabricator who will listen to me and do what I tell him reg the headers. I have designed the entire header so I just need a fabricator ie all

Couldnot find a single suzuki or a Mitsu engine. There were appx 400-500 engine lined up according to the engine codes.

The best bet would be Sharjah. If enough people are interested I could ask my supplier to ship a load to Dubai to one of his regular guys to save on shipping. I hear there is door to door from Dubai. So can then do that @ abt Rs 100 per KG. Dont know if it would work out but well worth a try.

Yes, there are N number of cargo guys in the Middle East doing Rs.100/kg shipments, that to D to D.
But again what about the customs duty? they say its not their baby to sort that thing.
Off Topic: I am thinking of sending racing seats for my Esteem via cargo, wondering will it attract duty?

There is a guy i got my DSK 165 from, he is in the merchant navy, he was talking about getting tyres from Dubai, let me see if it works out. I would love to have the DOHC head. It will atrract duty but if you can hand carry them and tell the customs that its for your car, i guess no duty.

There are many shops in sharjha (In fact lot of them) dealing in all this stuff. You can also have it couriered from there by some local courier companies (They charge some 6-7 DHS per kg).

There are way too many parts to hand carry. Its not just the head. You need the throttle body, distributors, water pumps. side engine mount, the exhaust primary at least its one heavy cargo to be carrying with you.

Yes they have the same gasket. No I used the same water pump I think. Well I had a workshop manual that i used to guide my mechanics on how to fit everything set the timing etc.... But I guess they should be able to do it now. As they have later on shifted the same from my initial car a 1999 model to the current one which is of a later model ie 2004. But I guess any good mechanic can get this done if he has the workshop manual and he know what he is doing. But traditional mechanics can goof up setting up the timing belts, timing etc unless you mention the process. There is a process on how the timing belt is changed based on markings on the engine. Usually mechanics mark the old belt positions and then change it which can be wrong as timing belts do slip. in my case they had to do it from scratch so the process helped. Also till I installed it on my current car the engine was running at a very low advance (almost nill) which was the reason for a huge performance loss. I found the correct timing from Harish who has a similar car. But I drove th car around like that without realizing this goof up as I myself am just learning things like this. I still feel the TPS is set wrong so would be setting this again myself or guiding my mechanics to do so.

United Motors Lanka PLC - Mitsubishi - Lancer

Mitsubishi Motors Sri Lanka website. The lancer page shows a DOHC MIVEC Engine option. Is it the 4G15? If yes, wont importing be easier than from other places like Australia and Japan?

Is there a centralised point to source all these parts from? Also can you list out every single part that will be needed to perform this modification? I have a 2001 model Lancer GLXi.

Guys looks like the 1.6 dohc head from an accent should do the job,

The G4ED is a variation of the 4G15 DOHC 16v by Hyundai and was never produced by Mitsubishi. Hyundai bored and stroked the 4G15 to produce a 1.6 Litre engine with a 1599cc displacement. It uses a 76.5x87.0mm bore and stroke and is produced solely in DOHC 16 valve form.In Australia the G4ED was used in the late model Hyundai Accent.

From wikipedia.

Pramod
