So, I have a 1994 Mitsubishi eclipse base model 5 speed manuel transmission. Iv had it for a a while now and I want to do a engine and transmission swap. I would like to have a 4g63 with a turbo. But I don't know what would fit in it. What motors will just slap on in there? Or no matter what will I have to modify something if I'm upgrading a base model? I need any help on this.

A 4G63 swap isn't easy. You'll need to have new mounts fabricated for the whole thing cause none of the old ones will work and on top of this you'll also need to have pretty much everything in the engine bay relocated.

People have toyed with this idea a lot over the years but the answer is always the same: It would be cheaper and easier to sell your car and buy a GSX or GST with a factory equipped 4G63.
