Default 92 Plymouth Colt Build (56K Don't Bother)

I know this isn't a car that most people would swap or even want to drive but us Colt/Mirage owners are a proud bunch. Anyway, I started with a car that I inherited. It's a 1992 Plymouth Colt base model. When I got it it had 66,000 miles and was in OK shape. The car had been wrecked three times so the front end left something to be desired. It originally had a Mitsubishi 4G15 engine which is a 1.5L SOHC 12 valve engine with 93 HP and a F4M21 tranny which is a 4 speed manual. The car was also a faded red in the rear and bright red up front. In 66,000 miles the car had been through 2 clutches and 2trannies.
Well one day I found a forum dedicated to the 3G (89-92) Colt/Summits/Mirages and decided I wanted to swap out the engine after I pushed the little 1.5 as far as I could without going to the extreme. I found out that the 4G63 turbo engine would swap in with very minimal effort so I jumped all over that. I found an engine that was pretty much already built I just had to finish it.
I got the engine and another Colt plus a whole bunch of parts for my old 90 AWD Talon. The engine already had Evolution 8 pistons, Evolution 3 cams, 1G (90-92 Talon/Eclipse/Laser) rods, ACL bearings, Sealed Power rings, balance shaft elimination, and a few other goodies so all I needed was to put on the finishing parts. I used a NA 4G63 intake manifold, a 1G turbo throttle body, 450 cc injectors and 90 DSM fuel rail, 91 DSM coil pack, 91 DSM power transistor unit, 91-94 DSM wiring harness, 2G (95-99) ported exhaust manifold, 40mm wastegate, 89 Colt GT turbo engine mounts, 89 Colt GT trans, NA DSM stage 1 clutch and flywheel, and a few other goodies.
Basically, I just finished the engine swap but I'm having some issues getting the tranny in right now but I should have it done tomorrow or the next day. This has been a long time project and alot has happened in the last few years. Plus my wife and I just had a baby last month so it's kind of hectic right now so please be patient and I will keep everyone updated.
I've swapped this car before with a 4G61 turbo engine and the vids are located here: YouTube - 92 Plymouth Colt 4G61t Swap and here: YouTube - 92 Plymouth Colt 4G61t swap . If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Garrett T04E 60-1
I'm currently looking for a manifold that already has a flange welded to it so I can mount my wastegate to it but it's going to take me a little while to get everything together so I'll run a 14b for now. I need to break the engine in and that T04 will want me to boost the ---- out of it. I'll keep everyone updated. Thanks for reading my novel!

That's what a 4 bolt LSD rear end with subframe and a W5M33 with transfer case is for...There are numerous people on my other forum that's done it. I'll be the first to admit FWD sucks...

Thanks man, I appreciate the comment. It's been a long road to get where it's at now believe me. Time will tell the outcome though.
