"...says Engine = 4G37..."
According to Wikipedia the Mitsu 4G37 engine displaced 1.8L.

Hmmmm....someone also told me that if there's a hood bulge on the left side (which I do have), then it's a 2.0 engine. That's there because the camshaft pulleys are too tall for the hood to close without it. The 1.8 liter engine is shorter and the hood, therefore, does not have that bulge.
I tend to agree with the engine sticker though.
However, shouldn't there be a way to tell via a VIN letter/number check (i.e. some letter or number in a certain position)?

I've got a 2000 6-cylinder eclipse and I'm wondering if it's possible to hook up and tow a small trailer from Cali to Texas with some furniture in it.

During that body style all Eclipses had the 'power bulge' regardless of the engine. There should be a badge on the rear underneath the tail lights which should tell you which engine you have. It should say something like, "GS", "GS DOHC" or "GS DOHC TURBO".
The GS has the 1.8L engine. The GS DOHC has the 2.0L and the TURBO version is simply the 2.0L with the turbo-charger added. Another method for identifying which engine you have is by checking what size the OEM tires are. If they're 14" you have the 1.8 and if they're 16" then you have the 2.0.
I hope that helped.

One of the best resources online for tires and questions about them is the Tire Rack. You can find them at tirerack.com and they should be able to answer your question.
#454 of 496 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Car Won't Go Over 45 MPH
Aug 06, 2008 (8:56 pm)
I have a GST Spyder... About 3 months ago I changed my stock Intercooler, and added a complete Aftermarket kit with an HKS Blow Off Valve. The car was running fine, except for the fact that 1 of the pipes kept coming off on high boost! I replaced it and it ran fine afterwards. About a week ago, I drove the car fine up until Saturday afternoon. I didn't drive the car at all on Sunday. So on Monday Morning, I checked my oil and coolant level as usual, and everything was correct. When I got on the freeway, I noticed hesitations, and when I reached 45 MPH, the car feels like it's choking. I managed to get to work on that speed; however, with that problem, my BOV was still going off. I also noticed that the car was throwing black smoke because it's burning a lot of gas. So now I don't know what to check for.

I hate to say this... But this is why I dont have a dang thing to do with Automatic Transmissions.
First of all when it comes to replacing them? It is cheaper with a manual.
Second better fuel economy
and third... Better control of the vehicle.
Automatic Trannies are the biggest pain when it comes complications...
Take it to a specialist.

i got a 01 spyder GT. stock tranny and partially stock engine, just upgraded ignition, intake and cat back with a shine flared body kit and rims. no biggy. but the thing i cant stand is its an automatic. im trying to figure out a way to go standard H 5 speed. ive thought about trying a evo 7 trans and doing the labor to make it a awd platform, or trying out the gts trans. im just not sure about if it will bolt up to my 6G73 fine. fabrication to get the stick, shift linkage and clutch is a bit easy. but i also thought about going to the 4G63 set up and truboing the shit out of it being theres hardly any parts for the 3.0. any one got any advice
