Amey, i have heard a lot of issues about lancers overheating when turbocharged, your engine is bigger and going to be turbocharged so i feel a bigger radiator might do the trick, i may be wrong here.

Hey Amey congrats I thought you were still in Jakarta. Cant wait for your wideband readings. I am also using my stock ECU and was told that since its on closed loop it will work fine. I'm also planning to go for Megasquirt. Already started doing research on the same. i wish there was someone on team bhp who had done it. But last I heard our ECU's cant be re chipped the way HM has bought them out. I may be wrong but you will have to confirm. Are you using the INNOVate wideband? Where are you hooking it up because the OE O2 sensor will also be required for the stock ECU. So I guess you will need to drill another bung into your primaries.

I have an Innovate wideband but am not using it right now.Will do so later on, first need to get the car moving fine and sort out minor issues and improve the reliability factor a bit.Then comes the tuning and data logging part.

After waiting for 4 months, the car is finally back on the road.
We did drive her a couple of times in the garage itself, sorting out minor issues but now she is properly on the road, already drove around 100-120 kms and boy I am already loving it!

Here are a few pics,

Engine bay after completing engine swap in all respects,

Custom made MAF sensor to Air Filter adapter.The filters have round mouth and the sensor has a square one...Arrgh

UCAl/Mikuni Fuel Filter from Maruti 800..Lol

Look at my innovative battery bracket!

Still on Michelin XM1+ 165/80/R13 tyres.

She comes home after a looooong time. Home sweet home
Engine swap/Performance mods in Lancer-22072010074.jpg

Initial impressions: She is quick, very torquey and eager.Thanks to the TDM ECU, she revvs right upto 7k rpm (more but havent pushed yet). The intake note is pretty aggressive. Still on stock headers and remaining plumbing till end can is still the old one.
On Monday I should get the exhaust done after the headers as current one is pretty restrictive. That should help a lot.
Very silent and sedate at normal speeds and rpm but things start getting interesting past 3k rpm mark and after 5k rpm its transforms into some sort of a beast, with its deafening growl and a scary sprint.
Loving every bit of it. There are still a few niggling issues but the joy of driving her is far more overpowering.

Still a long way to go,I know but then this is sort of a major stage completed.

Body/Chassis of a diesel lancer + Loom from a non power window Lancer with 4G93 engine + 4G94 engine from an indian Cedia
So it wasnt exactly a straightforward job atleast for us since me or my friend, Abhijit have no experience of doing engine swaps. Removing engines for rebuilding, removing looms and dismantling cars for painting or body work is no big deal for him but this is the first time he did such a job.

That's why it is a big achievement atleast for us to have accomplished till here. A good morale boost for the work to be done in the future.

Unfortunately I have no video but will take one and post it pretty soon.

Thanks,
Amey

Congrats! Does this engine have variable valve timing (MIVEC right?)? Have you prepped up the Megasquirt and the LC-1?

No this engine does not have variable valve timing aka MIVEC.Its the 4G92 1.6L engine from the same family that had MIVEC. So theoretically, even this engine can be made into MIVEC by swapping the head

Now that the car is running, I can concentrate on the Microsquirt and LC-1.
