Hi everyone :) i'm very confused with this 4g93 engine until everyone gave different opinions and answers that made me even confused :dontknow: . By the way anyone who don't know me, I'm studying in The Otomotif College (TOC) for Dip. in Motorsports Technology. I'm always kindda curious about engines and stuffs. :biggrin: .

OKAY! back to the point, Everyone knows that the 4g92 (1.6L) variant has MIVEC, My question is why do people post and claim that they have a 4g93 (1.8L) MIVEC and note that there is no MIVEC on the 4g93 variants. Because i can listen the MIVEC kicking in at 5500RPM and above. How do they have MIVEC's on their engines ? Is that possible by installing a 4g92 MIVEC cam ?

I wish any sifu's can PLEASE help me. Thanks :wavey:

IMO this info is more on knowledge basis. Not the type that is taught in education institution.
You cant mod the existing 93 head to become mivec head. U need the whole mivec head and its valvetrain to make sure the mivec runs.

I see. what about the engine management system. obviously mivec runs under its command of its ECU. so, if my guess is correct an engine with this type of modi has to have a piggyback or the stock mivec ecu. am I correct ?

Kinda sad to see TOC students coming outside for answers.
TOC is pretty bad then. I have a free with full scholarship but switched college instead.
Cannot say about TOC just because of just one student. I have to say at least the student is willing to make effort and ask. Afterall, this is a forum to discuss and help out whoever is interested.

I dont like forum that are like a platform for ppl to boast, to show-off and showing the long-list of gadgets, etc. They are so fake...

Full scholarship at TOC? wah! wasted....:bawling:

Nope, he is asking something more specific then what is being taught. The lecturer teaches what is supposed to be taught. More over he is not in automotive technology but motor sports technology

for the best answer...yes
but for the less good answer...mod shift lite alone still can trigger the mivec



and fuel feeding after mivec kick can be discus later la

If automotive technology then a lot of car brands in Glenmarie where you can have training. Audi, VW, Honda, Mazda, Perodua, Porsche, Proton etc., Just wondering Motorsports Technology who are the training partners....:biggrin:

Hi there,
My bro is currently undergoing study for his bach degree in automotive maintenance at UniKL Bangi.Now he is in he 3rd year.

What is discover is that most student have lack od hand on skill.Really not confident to do job.I tell that to him and he started to mix with friends whom had their own shop and things improved.

The main thing is,even if u have mastered the theory u are not above anyone else.The real world is tougher as therr are lots of knowledge to be discovered.For an example, after 3 years and one complete his study and gets a degree i will still opt for a mech with spm and had 3 years exp.Nothing bewts real life exp.

So,start mixing and learn thing out of your comfort zone.
Dont confine it to motorsport alone. Just like what u r doing right now learning abt engine,dont limit it to spesific make.

When studying automotive technology, hands on is only for experience. If want to be mechanic there is another certification and cheaper also. The main thing is to gain as much knowledge then enter the field of automotive and that is very very wide....:driver:
