Its the 4g63 Lancer Evo engine (also the same engine in the GS-T and GSX)
Its not from the Eclipse, its from the lancer, as you can see the cam gears are on the left.
I'm guessing the difference is that the Lancer has different cyclinder heads, thats why it has cam gears on the left, as compared on the right on the DSMs, and thats also why it probubly makes more power than the DSM's, plus it has a better turbo
Not too sure about that engine. It doesn't look like the one from the 6cyl Eclipse I drove. They're not terrible cars, just too little power for the price. It's basically the same exact engine and tranny as my base model (well they have 4 valves per cylinder while I have 2). I really couldn't justify a car payment on a car that isn't THAT much better than mine.
Take a look closer at that motor... It's the exact same as in gatecrashers pick... And for the recrod I've worked on TONS of 4Cyl 2000+ eclipses and that is in NO WAY a stock 4 cylinder with a red valve cover. Not even close. everything in that motor except the intake piping is exactly the same in both pics....
