Mitsubishi 4G9series engine basically have the same design on the cylinder head, but for the rocker cover in intake manifold, they keep on have changes from 4G91, 4G92, 4G93 and 4G94.

For the 4G93 DOHC rocker cover, normally their designed with 3 goving, 2 groving at one side and another 1 groving at another side.

Recently we came across the rocker cover gasket with 4 groving (as on attached photo), this 4 groving design is quite rare for Mitsubishi Inline 4 cylinder engine, except for the 6A1series of DOHC V6 engine or 6G7series of DOHC V6 engine, it is hardly to find anothe 4 groving rocker cover designed from Mitsubishi engine.

EVO VR4 Cylinder Head Gasket

Since the introduction of the Mitsubishi 4G63 engine that install on VR4 or EVO, their cylinder head gasket had since evolve from graphite type to metal type. And at the stage of metal type gasket, it had change from the thickness from 0.4mm to 1.5mm due to the turbo charge modification.

As their original piston bore design at 85mm, their cylinder head gasket is design at a normal diameter of 86mm, but still there are more modification come up. With the piston bore modified to 86mm, the original size of cylinder head gasket is no more suitable for this usage purpose, hence, the requirement for the 86.5mm and 87mm diamenter on the cylinder head gasket had come out.
