HI , currently bringing my Mivec from Ireland to England , Long story short need ... need CAT to pass MOT here in England.

What is the CAT part number ? cant find on any site. Mine is late 95 early 96 model.

Look to me like alot of other Mitsi CATS come in this size for other cars right down to 1.3 s

The Lancer 1.6 4G92 Sohc CATs are available here. Part # MB925125

Will this or similar work? Will it be a lower flow unit?

I know there is a difference to do with the slightly later CK4A s with regards the CAT heat sensor , but seems this can be easily fixed by joining the wires together..

Well if any one knows the part number or similar part to sub in , help would be graetly appreciated!!!!

CK4A CATALYTIC CONVERTOR
1995 - 1997 MR188785
1997 - 2000 MR188786

any model lancer/mirage cat should be fine, only thing to watch is the angles of the 2 bolt flanges. I had a CJ4A that had a horrible JDM aftermarket exhaust on it and we had to much around with a few models before i found a rear section that would bolt onto the rear flange of the cat

No way are you going to want to pay for a new cat converter from Mitsubishi! Lets just say you don't want to hear the price!
Are you running decat at the moment, or do you not think your current cat will pass? MOT CO & HC limits are the same as NCT limits.
I have 2 simple tricks to pass the emissions if you're right on the emission limits. PM me if you want those answers.

There should be a few second hand Mivec cats around that have previously passed the test. Rob in Waterford on www.mitsipieces.com got another Mivec Lancer in for breaking only last night and should have a few lying around.

If you need any other MOT bits such as driver's window regulator I'll should be headed from Cork to Galway later this week.

Thanks for numbers really appreciate , yeah i think the one from the 4g92 non mivec looks like it measures up , just wanted to see if i can gave a motor factor that code ill be guarantedd my 100 pounds sterling wont end up as shiny can in the corner.
Yeah i think some of the flanges have off set and few drawings i saw on http://cn.oemol.com/oem/en_oem_detail/3 ... Pipes.html show the flange PCDs are differnt between models for no reason ?and there i see some differnt in lengths too...... you have to have the part number like MB925125 to use the site but good to get some drawings.



Mitsibitchy,
Not going to the dealer!!!!!! but have to say always woth riingin them got few bit there cheap!!!! bushings/filters/sump pan!!! and gear cable terminator block thing all at good prices,, i was surprised.
Yeah the lad in the MOT centre said she almost made , he recommends Forte engine/valve etc cleaner and drive the shit out of it....... usall thing we all do ,,, but problem is she has been sootin up the exhust for few months so i recton she runin rich or missin. If its rich i think casue hole in manifold or somethin ahead of the lamba,,, missin couldb be the gammy plug thread someone fucked up,,, plug in tight tho buge!!! but dont know for certain if she down too low or up too high.......
Car still runnin very good though and not eatin too much fuel.
What do u suggest for passin? same thing or somethin else?
MAn yeah can get bits for Mivec handy now in ireland..... Was close to get an secound hand sent over....Mivec colts and FTOs here...and almost none for breakin.

Watch the cops headin between shannon an ennis theyll be up one of the slip roads ther for sure this weekend, end of month + bank holiday.........
Load of nice mivecs being broke last time i was in honda haven in galway could be work stickin the head in

Haha, that's what I meant. You'd be paying out close to €800 or more from Mitsubishi, so no way would you be going to the Mitsubishi and you'd probably be waiting 4 weeks for it to come in from Japan.
4G92 SOHC will fit with some modification as mentioned, but whether it's more convenient to get a second hand functional Mivec cat is up to you.
I make my own bushes/mounts, so no Mitsubishi shopping for me :mrgreen:
Union Japan C-414 filters are just as good as Mitsubishi genuine (use same paper factory source as original, housing it strong, even cut them open after 8000km and you'll see how effective they are. But Mitsi are fairly reasonable on some items all right, but I never use them.

There's a large error there with the Forte engine cleaner; the engine should never be revved with the engine cleaner added to the oil. The engine should only be held between idle and 2000rpm for 10-20mins without any load being placed on the engine (no driving). After flushing you'll need a very good oil in there to keep the lubrication where deposits have been stripped.

If possible at the MOT centre, leave the car running outside so that the cat is at maximum operating temperature. Dipetane (product) will clear out any sooty deposits where possible to lower CO emissions. You'll need to run it through with a full tank of petrol before refilling and going back in for the test. The other sneaky one is to stuff steel wool into the exhaust before you drive to the test. The iron/steel once heated has a lot of surface area to act as a metal catalyst for a relatively short time (by comparison to the other catalytic metals).

If the car is running very rich, you should see the cat overheat light coming on at the dash if it's working properly, but as you said it's likely to be the plug hole with the stripped threads. Might be worth taking out that plug to compare it to the other plugs.
If you haven't come across it flashing the codes is very useful;
