Mitsubishi 4B11

Mitsubishi 4B11The Mitsubishi 4B11 is an inline 2.0 liter (1,998 cc, 121.9 cu in) four-cylinder, four-stroke cycle gasoline engine manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors since 2007.

The Mitsubishi 4B11 engine has an aluminum block and cylinder head, pentroof type combustion chamber, dual overhead camshaft (DOHC), four-valve designs with valve timing electronic control system (MIVEC) on both camshafts, electronic spark-advance control type ignition system, and electronic control multi-point fuel injection system.

An 86.0 mm (3.39 in) cylinder bore and 86.0 mm (3.39 in) piston stroke give the engine a total of 2.0 L of displacement. The compression ratio rating is 10.0:1.

The MMC 4B11 produced from 150 PS (110 kW; 147 HP) at 6,000 rpm to 158 PS (116 kW; 156 HP) at 6,000 rpm of horsepower and 199 N·m (20.3 kg·m, 146.7 ft·lb) at 4,250 rpm of peak torque.

Cylinder block

The 4B11 has an aluminum block, cylinder bore is 86.0 mm (3.39 in) and the piston stroke is 86.0 mm (3.39 in), the compression ratio is 10.0:1.

The pistons are each fitted with two compression rings and a single oil ring, connecting rods are 143.75 mm (5.659 in) center-to-center long. The pistons are made of a special aluminum alloy. The connecting rods are made of highly rigid, forged carbon steel. The crankshaft for the 4B11 engine has 8 balance weights and supported by five main bearings.

Cylinder head

The engine has an aluminum cylinder head with two chain-driven overhead camshafts and MIVEC (MITSUBISHI INNOVATIVE VALVE TIMING ELECTRONIC CONTROL SYSTEM) for both the intake and exhaust valves. Intake valves are 35.0 mm (1.38 in) in diameter, and the exhaust valves are 29.0 mm (1.14 in).

The Mitsubishi 4B11 engine does not have hydraulic lifters, so special valve tappets are used to adjust the valve clearance. To adjust the valve lift, 47 sizes of valve tappets are available in 0.015 mm (0.0006 in) increments, from 3.000 mm (0.1181 in) to 3.690 mm (0.1453 in).
