    ID this valve cover?

    Seller says he thinks it's for a 4G52 but isn't sure. Is it just me or does it look like the footprint is all wrong and it's too short, like it's for a 3 cylinder generator or something?

    Definitely not a 4G52. It looks like it's off something like an early Mirage or Lancer...

    Would make for a nice piece of wall art then.

    That's what I thought too. It's definitely off a belt driven engine and the only thing I could think of with a cover that small were the 2 Mitsubishis I mentioned in my earlier post.

    it looks short to me even for a 4g15, might be that the picture is off somehow? it resembles the 4g15 cover with that bolt pattern. my guess, it came from an early carburated colt with a jet valves. or... it could be an extremely rare valve cover to a sirius dash 1.5l 3 valve motor that was only given to Executives for testing. (Just made this up to make it interesting btw).

    hope it gets figured out.

    When did they stop using Cyclone branding? They used that on engines that didn't even have Cyclone technology.

    I think they used the Cyclone labelling on engines with jet valves as well. I did a google image search and this valve cover looks to be from a 4G13/15. Those engines look tiny compared to their big bro 4G5/4G6's.
