    Default Proton M21 coupe..based on CC Lancer/Mirage

    Hey all, my mate has purchased a Proton M21 Coupe, from what I have been able to find out so far is that its based on the CC Lancer and Mirage. What I'm trying to sort is a workshop manual, it seems Haynes and Gregory's hasn't done one but I'm thinking the CC Lancer one may do the job. Has anyone had any experience with these Proton/Mitsubishi hybrids? Any info would be appreciated, I haven't been too successful in my hunt for info on it.

    Protons are made in Malaysia by a local company. They used to be ased on older Mitsubishi models, and probably still are. You may be able to get a manual directly from Malaysia. Google "Bookshop Kuala Lumpur" and see what comes up. From memory (failing badly these days) there was a major chain called MPH and they had a fantastic range of technical books. You may be able to get a manual from them.

    M21s have the 1.8L Lancer MR engines and components. But, in a CC lancer coupe shell.

    great value little cars at the time, had lotus tuned suspension too from memory as well as a good list of extra's!

    Should be able to get by on a lancer manual if need be I'd think.

    Not sure if you still need any info, but basically the Protons are a CC lancer. The engine's are called a 4g93p, which is basically just the CC 4g93 (1.8L) engine with a twin cam head. A lot of parts you will find are interchangeable with the CC. Engine wise, all protons from that generation, CC lancers, evo 1-3s and older galants all bolt up to one another. In terms of the interior evo 1-6, lancers, mirages and the protons the seats all bolt up with the same fitment. Brakes, trailing arms and other parts of the suspension are all also interchangeable.

    Awesome little cars, and a lot of options there for bolt on upgrades.

    What part exactly? Engine setup is the same as an evo 1-3 so the 4g63 or 4g93t engine are straight swaps
