    No updates for this yet?

    We have a discussion at the local forum where others say that the MIVEC function kicks in only at 5000 RPM while I'm on the idea that it is across the whole rev range.

    From memory is is around 4700 rpm, can't remember where I read that. But ours is only on the intake side, not exhaust profile.

    That is supposedly for the old MIVEC technology but we have the NEW Mirage ..

    From Mitsu's site:

    MIVEC DOHC-12valve Engine (3A9, 3B2)

    The MIVEC engine used in "Mirage", "ek wagon", "ek custom", "ek space" and "eK space custom" model uses the continuously variable intake valve timing MIVEC system that continuously and optimally controls the intake valve timing according to engine running conditions.

    This system delivers high performance and low fuel consumption.

    Mitz,

    Mitsubishi must have moved the MIVEC description on their website. I found it here:

    HOME > Innovation > Technology Library > MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system)

    Mitsubishi describes three variations of MIVEC, only one of which is depicted for the 3A92 engine. Interestingly it's listed as Japanese market only. Intake valves only. And it's an electrically controlled hydraulic actuator. Kinda steampunk. Keep that engine oil running clean folks.
