    Mitsubishi today announced the development of the “4J10″ 1.8L engine which incorporates a new version of MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control) and their new Auto Stop & Go (AS&G) idle-stop technology.

    The new 4J10 MIVEC engine (1.8-liter, inline 4, 16-valve SOHC) features the use of a next-generation MIVEC system that continuously regulates intake valve lift, opening duration and timing. The new MIVEC system together with improved combustion stability and a reduction in piston friction provide an improvement in fuel economy without any loss in engine performance (output and torque) over the 4B10 MIVEC engine (1.8-liter, inline-4, 16-valve DOHC).
