Too bad, they don't have high performance struts for Mirage also, but they do have stock replacement that made by KYB & TOKIKO.... the only performance strut can be found for Mirage is Bilstein I believe!

Shocks & Struts for Mirage:

KYB GR-2
KYB AGX
Koni Sport
Tokico

The Bilsteins are their lesser TC model, not the HD or Sport, so I wouldn't bother. But if you're willing to spend more, Tein, H&R, D2, and TODA Racing make coilover systems for the Mirage.

Only AGX n KONI can consider performance strut....GR2 n Tokico is only a stock replacement...
I would suggest Bilstein over GR2 / Tokico if you are looking for non-adjustable strut replacement....

The KYB GR-2s for the Mirage have about 15% more rebound damping than the stockers. The Bilstein is a stock replacement unit. You'll be paying more to get the same end result.

Blocks... Will a short block from a 4G94 fit into a 1997 Mirage 1.8 (4G93)?

The engine flipped in 1996 for north america. In other places, who received the 5th generation earlier, its obviously earlier.

Black97: If I'm not mistaken, the '02-'06 Lancer and the 5th gen. Mirage coupes & sedans have the same mounting locations/mounts for the engine and transmission.

As much as I would like a 2.4 MIVEC engine from a Lancer RalliArt, or an Evo's 4G63 in my 98 Mirage coupe, that would put me in Street Modified class (Auto X), and I would be slaughtered by better rides. I'm already having a tough time in STS class, but I've posted some decent times.

My last mod was a Whiteline adjustable rear sway bar. It made a big difference.

Black97,
You should have already know that on the mirage board. There are a couple of threads on the topic already.

G93 vs G94
Different wire harness & sensor location . . . can't confirm the cali spec G93 . . . which will affect a G93 ecu from reading it properly w/o going into severe limp mode. Find ADAM, the guy w/ the Evo swapped mirage. He's the forefather of the G94 swap into a mirage.

Otherwise, Just follow AQ to bore the block +.5 mm w/o the hassle of electrical gremlins or reducing your redline by 500 rpm from a G94 short block. If you really want to be creative, see if the G94 crank can be use w/ G93 rods w/o making the piston head crashing into the cyl head (G93 block).

DIM and I had thought of this long ago, but no one has ever proven its viability. Forgot to ask AQ to do this before his rebuild.

As for a G69 swap from a RA, not worth the headache . . . look at the area in the mirage where the assesory belts are located . . . in the RA, it has the throttle cable there. Instead look at the G69 in the 4g eclipse, the throttle cable is located in its rightful place. Then again, corpsing a 4g eclipse will cost you and arm and leg like find an ITR motor at a scrap yard.

This is probably a stupid question but do they have the same oil pans.

So are there different headers for different mirage engines or are they all the same? Basically, if I get an aftermarket header for a mirage, will it fit my 2004 lancer or will there be fitment problems anywhere?

the 94 is slightly taller than the 93, so yes, there will be fitment issues.

4G94
Upper MD369653 $176.47
Lower MD369654 $32.68

4G93
Oil Pan MD318675 $121.37

I'm going to go with "no, it's different" since it seems like the 4G94 moved to a two-piece pan...
