    A bit of an update.

    The Evo was still a heavy bitch and was fitted with parts behind the dash that are now redundant. All up some 20kg was removed without breaking a sweat.

    The trusty Bonds bolt in cage served it's purpose, but it was removed and moved on. A fairly basic cage, but with all plates and bolts etc., the old cage weighed a surprisingly hefty 41kg.

    The car has been getting quicker over the years, and with the new 400wkw + engine/turbo package, it was time to bite the bullet and fit a decent comprehensive cage. I gave the guys at Adelaide Motorsport Fabrication the task of fabricating and installing a full type 3 Cams cage. Currently just waiting for Cams approval before painting. We estimate the new cage to weigh around 50kg which isn't much more than the Bonds bolt in considering all the extra bars.

    Because I am time poor, I had the guys at Adelaide Motorsport Fabrication do some work on my heavy doors. Standard doors cards, glass, electric windows, central locking, wiring, brackets, door handles and side intrusion bars were all deleted and the doors were totally gutted. In place, alloy door cards were made up and 3mm lexan fitted all round including the rear window. One of the easiest ways to shave off 50kg.

    All up expecting the car to be at least 60kg lighter than before, and obviously a bit stiffer due the cage. More updates to come in the next week or so

    Fair to say that it's days are numbered as far as a street car goes.

    The roll cage has been CAMS certified (yay!) and given a coat of matt black. The alloy door cards and lexan windows are all in. Just need a slider for driver's window and NACA duct in the rear for ventilation. New rear alloy bulkhead, new floor plate and seat base all fabbed and fitted. Almost time to start putting it all back together. Merry Christmas.

    Had a belated Christmas present this year when the party piece for the Evo 6 finally arrived on my doorstep. Was definitely worth the wait! After speaking to Ben from Benchmark, I had Fabtech in NSW knock together this turbo kit consisting of:


    - EFR 8374 IWG T4 turbo

    - Custom Hypex 347 S/S manifold

    - Custom 3.5" turbo dump pipe and front pipe

    - Custom 4" alloy intake with K&N filter

    - Spal slim line fan with shroud


    Should comfortably push 400wkw without stressing the turbo too much, but I might have to invest in shares in driveline parts with the additional torque.


    The Engine rebuild commences early next month.

    Looks great, going to the next level now. Should be a weapon with 400kw. Too bad the evonationals aren't running any more

    Cheers, should go pretty well, but it is still very much a budget build.

    Got the car back from the fabricators this week, and gave it a bit of TLC as it hadn't seen a chamois for 15 months. Was going to treat it to a blow over respray, but it still scrubs up 'okay' for an original 19 yo Mitsubishi paint job. Will leave it for now as I might wrap the car later down the track. Peeled back all the protective film on the lexan windows. Looks great when it's all clean, new and scratch free. Going to order a window slider for driver and duct for some air flow/ventilation from Demon tweeks.









    Also fitted a brand new windscreen after the retard who removed the perfectly good original cracked it.



    Been hiring shitty car trailers for 6-7 years and I was completely fucking over it. Bit the bullet and contacted SA trailers in Burton and gave them an order for a new trailer late last year. They had a really good rep and I have been thoroughly impressed with their quality and service. The price was reasonable too. Deck is 2.0m wide (widest I can legally go), so there should be sufficient width should I ever decide to go widebody.

    Just about finished, just need lights/wiring and a coat of charcoal hammertone paint.

    Doing all the things right. In a perfect world we should be able to drive to golf/shops/pub in these things.

    Had no time for updates lately as work has been sucking the life out of me and also happened to recently get married.

    Picked up the car trailer in January this year, and I am happy with it for the most part. It came in at 800kg which I thought was ridiculous, but the steel ramps are fucking heavy. Will swap them for custom alloy ramps as time goes by. The rear of the trailer, being for low vehicles, also bottoms out on just about everything.



    Back to the Evo...

    I was advised by my tuner that I needed to step it up on the engine management side, so I started doing my research and had my eyes set on the MoTec M1 series ECU. But, the budget was starting to blow out and had to compromise with the next best thing. Came across a near new MoTec M800 plug and play Evo 9 ECU for a good deal, so I grabbed it. Just need to unlock all the motorsport functions a la traction control, launch control, anti lag, boost control, variable camshaft control etc. Looks stock as...



    My Xtreme single plate carbon clutch was a ripper of a clutch for the money, and never let me down, but had to step it up with all the expected torques from the new turbo. Was about to pull the trigger on an ORC559C, but heard reports that while awesome for track use, they tend to slip when you launch them with some vigour. So, took some good advise from my mate Sanjeet from SSM Performance Parts and spent a little extra on a twin plate OS Giken R2CD clutch. Expecting it to handle all the abuse I can throw at it.



    It was drawn to my attention that my over-sized 7L Race-fab gated sump was not engineered as well as first thought and it came as a bit of a shock to find out that the standard pick-up was used in my previous engine that was some 15-20mm off the bottom of my sump. How I didn't spin a bearing and lunch my motor, I do not know. So, it was time to move up to something tested and proven and have to thank Dan from TC Race Fabrication for making his latest iteration oversized racing sump at such short notice. Hoping that it's the next best thing before going full dry sump.





    After waiting longer than I would have prefered, the new rebuilt engine is back in the car. It is an honest build, but hopefully provides a few years reliable motorsport, which consists of the following main elements:

    - Factory 2.0L 88mm OEM crack tested crankshaft (replaced as previous had a crack in the #4 big end journal)
    - New CP 86mm piston set @ 9.5:1 CR with HD Gudgeon pins
    - Carrillo Pro-H rods with Carr rod bolts
    - Stock reconditioned Evo 9 Mivec head
    - Solid lifter kit
    - GSC S2 Cams shafted (replace inlet cam as it was scored!)
    - ACL Race series Main, big end and thrust bearings
    - L19 ARP head studs
    - New OEM cambelt, gaskets, seals

    Fair to say that there is next to no room in the bay for the new turbo kit, which should fit like a glove as it was custom made for the car, but doesn't without additional modifications a lot of headaches.



    Underside of the engine bay - need a new custom hotside intercooler pipe fabbed to suit the new EFR 8374 turbo and a 3.5" exhaust fabbed to the rear of the car from my front pipe. Currently at the fabricators waiting in line to get done

    Awesome progress,

    I feel your pain re the "bolt on" turbo kit. A mate in Perth has done similar with his TME with the slightly smaller 7670 and has had a similar degree of ballache getting it to actually fit. Getting a good path for the actuator proved a challenge along with the other fab you are doing.

    Really look forward to seeing dyno results.

    Wow, you have a potentially fast combo there. And looks like all the right things are being done. When is it going to come out to the Island?
