Re: difference

91-96 base...no, 97-99 the base went from a 222hp DOHC to the 164hp SOHC engine that all Stealth bases(91-96) used.

Your 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 is the 92nd out of the 315 that were made that year. Only 21 of which are exactly identical.

some people advertise it as 222hp some as 218hp, not all cars dyno the same so I gues its safe to say its 220 hp and just round it off, I do use royal purpule motor oil which is proven to add 2 hp to any car so safely I can say mine is 222hp hahahaha!

p.s. BOOYAAH!

It is advertised as 222 hp for 91-96 DOHC's and 218 hp for 97-99 DOHC's. That is CRANK hp, not to the wheels. Most will tell you Mistu overrated the DOHC's. In reality the cars are probably around 210 crank.
