    Considering this the 3a9 engine has been in use since 2003 maybe it was easier to mount the 4g into it since they were both being used at the same time.

    Oh, new to Australia. Also the 4g into my mirage would make it illegal for road use.
    Hope someone puts a 4b11 in soon :P

    Win. Figured. My uncle may have traded his 4 for a 9. Should have told him to hold the 4 for me.

    I wonder if we could use Evo 4 springs on our car? Hmmmm, I need to look into that.

    It was more about the geometry of the suspension, front knuckles and balljoint, etc.
