Buy the book "maximum boost" by corky bell. Invest the $$$ in reading up on how they work and how to build your own, and you will know what to do.

If your excel has the 1.5L that is shared with the scoupe turbo...then there is your answer.

The excel never had the same engine as the Turbo Scoupe (alpha). Later Excels shared the same Mitsubishi 8v injected unit as the Series I Scoupe, but not until '90.

Pony X2, thanks for the info. (There goes the turbo scoupe idea.)

The best people to talk about upgrading the Excel engine would be HVE or RPW in Australia. If there is a turbo excel anywhere, I would bet it's down under. Excel's have a much better reputation down under compared to the states. If there is a more cost effective way of modifing an excel engine, HVE/RPW would know about it.

Yes, RWP would definitely be the best way to go.

If you check out their site (http://www.rpw.com.au) they have full rebuild & performance kits for the mitsu 1.5L found in the Excel.

Nope the motor mounts don't line up.

One way to go might be to get an early Elantra 1.6/1.8 16v motor, since these are mitsu engines and should fit in with not too much trouble.

Anyone know if this can be done??

Pony, yes it can.

There's actually a guy on Fxtreme (Hespala) that is doing this. He has the 1.6L variant of the 4G63 in his X1.

Well at the moment your 1.5 motor produces 68bhp. The 1.6 16v produces 112 bhp and the 1.8 around about 120 bhp. So yeah it would be worth it in terms of power gains.

Not sure how easy it is to turbo but Hyundai4g63t has doen it and you migt want to take a look at his website:-

Hey guys sorry I haven't been around lately, been busy getting the beast back up with the new turbo.

As for Turboing the 4G6- family of motor's it is pretty easy thing to do, the hardest part is getting the fuel system up to par with the amount of boost your running.

I've been saying it for awhile now but I promise that my article on turboing it will be up on my site by the frist part of next week, i've been taking more pictures for the article so it will have all the visuals needed for everyone.

Oh well, I can see I'm not the only one who wants to TC his Excel!

I had a project in mind for some times now...having a turboed Excel (X1 or X2) for my weekend crotch rocket. But damn, what engine to use!?!?

I think I heard something about an old dodge colt turbo engine would line-up right in there...any comments?

Well, from what I found it seems like the best bet would be either a 4G61 (from an Elantra) or a 4G63(T) (Talon/eclipse/lazer).

They had mits in Omni?

BTW, has anybody here builded up the 4G15 from an Excel? Is the anything to do with this engine? (besides scrap that is). Would it still hold on in one piece if I was to use forced induction? (I know, change the rods and pistons, but is the block strong enough?)

if you're talkig about the mits 1.5litre in the excel its a 4g8v and yes as long as you keep compression in the 7.5:1 range you wont have a problem with forced induction...not really worth it tho...you'll only end up with like 150-160 HP...go for the 4g63 and sammich it in there. 220+ HP cant go wrong.
