Our friend Warren over and Antilag Racing came up with an innovative new dipstick design for the 1G and 2G automatic DSM transmissions. Here’s what he has to say about them:
Introducing the Billet 1G and 2G automatic transmission dipstick. This is a complete remove and replace component that gets rid of your stock dipstick with something that will
make all the boys and girls drool when you pop the hood. The factory transmission dipstick tubes on the 1G and 2G automatics are vented from the factory, which allows air that could be generated (foaming), when the fluid passes through the gears, clutches and planetaries. The Mitsubishi engineers got the venting part correct, but they didn’t account for the fact that it would spew all over your engine bay or in extreme cases your tires if it were to rise to the top of the tube.
The Antilag Racing dipstick was produced for a few reasons:
- The dipstick can be connected to a catch can to facilitate a path for excess fluid to
- Provide a larger orifice for venting (Utilizes a 1/16” NPT fitting) through the center of
the handle versus the stock pin hole vent.
- Provide a mechanism to safety wire your dipstick to the actual transmission tube.
- Billet handle to get rid of that unsightly and often broken plastic/metal stock unit
Features and included in each kit:
- Double O‐RING with tolerance fit body, specific to 1G and 2G dipstick tubes
- 6061 Aluminum handle machined in the U.S.A
- New Lokar dipstick with indicator
- ‐4 AN to 1/16th National Pipe Thread fitting adapter
We’re making these available on the FTY Racing website so that you can order these at your convenience. The order will be fulfilled by Warren at Antilag Racing (he doesn’t have a website at this time.)
