RA 2009 Tool kit list

I'm starting this thread for anyone who wants to know what tools they need for whatever work they need to do on there cars. We should be listing all the tools that are needed to do all the How tos in the section. It think it would be most useful in the following format:



Install EVO X FMIC

XXX = tools

XXXX
XXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX

Hope I started something useful.

realistically, there are very few tools needed at all to work on most bolt-on diy-type modifications for any mitsubishi...

1/4, 3/8, and 1/2" ratchets, extensions, and swivels

10, 12, 14, 17, 19, 21, 24, 26 and 32mm
-sockets
-wrenches

those are just about the only sizes you will ever encounter on the car when it comes to nuts and bolts, so basically having a set of those wrenches and sockets in 1/4" and 3/8" sockets with ratchets (1/2" drive for the 17 and up makes it easier for sure) along with some ratchet extensions and universal swivel joints is about all you would need for this car. only other things that are quite commonly needed:

philips and flat head screw drivers in various sizes and lengths

interior trim panel remover tool

rubber mallet/deadblow hammer

prybar assortment

wire cutters/strippers/crimpers

metric allen (hex) bit set, up to 10mm


more specialty type stuff needed for the heavier-duty type jobs, but the basics can pretty much all be accomplished with what i've got listed here. good luck
