What are DSM parts?
Diamond-Star Motors may be gone, but the vehicles that resulted from this joint manufacturing venture continue to reside in the garages of automotive enthusiasts everywhere. The term "Diamond Star" came from the logos of the two companies involved: The diamonds of the Mitsubishi Logo mixed with the pentagram of the Chrysler logo. DSM 1G stands for "1st generation". It was the first line of cars to come out of the new Diamond Star Motors plant in 1989. These vehicles include
The 1989-1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The 1989-1994 Plymouth Laser
The 1989-1998 Eagle Talon
DSM first-generation models got an update halfway through production, and you can spot key difference between the "1Ga" and "1Gb" models: pop-up headlights.
2G are the second generation of DSM vehicles. Plymouth Lasers were phased out as Plymouth was starting to crumble. So that left us with the Eclipse & Eagle Talon. They were given a more modern body shape, getting rid of the "wedge" shape in favor of a more streamlined, modern profile.
DSM 4G63 Engine
The DSM 4G63 is a 2L, 4 cylinder DOHC engine. Stock versions put out around 210hp. Upgraded versions of the 4G63 can hit 800 or even 1000 horsepower, however. The two notable parts of the 4G63 is the cast iron cylinder block and aluminum head. It featured a forged steel crankshaft & cast aluminum pistons. A timing chain is used in place of a timing belt. There also two versions of the 4G63: 6-bolt and 7-bolt. This just describes the number of bolts used to connect the flywheel to the crankshaft.
