Evo X MR Touring bolt-ons 327whp/ 331wtq

** see below for updates. Now the car is 454 whp **

Picked this up in March, a 2011 Evo X Touring with bolt ons:
  • AMS Intake
  • AMS Front Mount Intercooler
  • AMS powder coated upper intercooler piping
  • AMS powder coated lower intercooler piping
  • AMS Widemouth downpipe with cast turbine discharge pipe
  • AMS High flow cat using steel cat core
  • GrimmSpeed Boost Control Solenoid
  • Cobb Access Port
  • AMS Custom flash on Dyno

Build log and future plans here: http://www.evomn.net/forums/showthre...987-Sleeper-MR

Dyno per AMS below: 327awhp and 331awtq @25psi on 93 octane. Runs about 10hp and 10tq less on 91 tune. Pretty fun drive. Excited to improve the high end.

Thanks - it's meant to be a sleeper, so I'm still running stock exhaust. I'm looking for a quiet, no-drone, non-bling upgrade at the moment. Tanabe Medalion Touring looks to be a good, quiet exhaust. Akrapovic would be great, but I'm not willing to spend that kind of money for an exhaust.

Next up is MAP EF2.5, ported intake and exhuast manifolds, bigger TB, plus supporting fuel and SST mods. Should be fun to see how it turns out.

Nice power. Even a stock appearing the evo x isn't much of a sleeper.

Lippy, you have a point there, perhaps I should go with "unassuming tuner car"

Made a few changes - now the car is a 2.2L with GTX3576R and all the supporting mods. Now it is doing 454whp with the MR

Nice. It's 454whp now on Kozmic's dream-killer Mustang dyno.

haha I was also tuned on a mustang dyno. How low do you think those numbers are (% wise)? What mods did you do besides a bigger turbo and what size?

Fast forward to end of 2016. Lots of issues, but the car is "done." Now to get it out to some events to try it out.

Before the car got to where it is now, I tried to do a stock bottom end build, including clutch work from Kozmic, to keep costs down. When that ran into some issues (hard to tune, idle problem, etc), I decided to build the bottom end and do something reliable enough to do track days without undue worry. The results are below. The interim inlcuded a MAP EF2.5 turbo and supporting fuel with a nice Tanabe Medalion Touring 2.75" exhaust.

Summary of what has changed from above:

Power (454whp... in an MR on 93)
- 2.2L stroked, built bottom end
- GTX3576R turbo + supporting fuel (replacing a MAP EF2.5 with anti-surge)
- GSC S2 cams and supporting cam parts
- MAP Rev 3 ceramic coated intake
- MAP ported and ceramic coated exhaust manifold
- Cobb quad tip exhaust
- Kozmic surge tank set up (for track use)
- Synapse BOV
- 3.5" MAF
- Cobb quad exhaust (replacing Tanabe Medalion Touring 2.75")

Handling
- Ohlins R&T with custom spring rates (bonus: ~28lbs weight reduction)
- Hotchkis hollow sways with supporting hardware (bonus: ~7lbs weight reduction)
- Perrins PSRS
- Alignment

Transmission health
- Kozmic Magic Pack v1
- Dodson heated sump
- Mishimoto X-line radiator (extra capacity to cool the sump and engine)

Weight reduction
- Lightweight battery and mounting kit (~17lbs)
- Kozmic atmospheric breather and front bumper support bracket (~4lbs)

To install
- Girodisc and new pads (have, bonus - ~20lbs unsprung, rotational mass weight reduction)
- New wheels (18x9.5 +22 - need to find and order with bonus 10-12lbs weight reduction target)

Car is a blast to drive now. Pulls harder and earlier than when I bought it. Handles so much better. Great car!

Kozmic also cleaned up my engine bay a bit and did some powder coating to everything matched up. Very professional job with quality parts. Highly recommended.

A note on exhausts and "drone" commonly reported:

I started the build with an EF2.5 and supporting mods, coupled to a Tanabe Medalion Touring. The Tanabe is nice for several reasons: it looks great, it flows better than stock, and it is lightweight. And it is inexpensive. You can find these for ~$750 or so brand new.

The Tanabe, with its 2.75" ID is just different enough from the usual 3" of aftermarket exhausts that it shifts the resonance so you don't get as much drone at highway speeds. This was why I initially chose it.

Fast forward to today, and I have the Cobb Quad on the car. I don't like that it is HEAVY. However, I needed more flow for the build, and this was another option that has reports of minimal drone. What I have observed is that with the 2.2L on my car, there is NO drone at any speed that I could find. Idle is a bit obnoxious in the car, but everywhere else is very pleasant. Even at WOT, the sound is pleasant and not too loud, at all. Very nice setup and highly recommended.

Oil filter note:

When I got the car back from Kozmic, it had a Denso 150-2043 oil filter. This cross references to a Napa Gold 1334. If you look up the NG filter for the Lancer, you'll see a 1356, which is much narrower and slightly taller than the Denso 150-2043/ NG 1356.

So, in summary:
  • Napa Gold 1356 (What is looked up at Napa)
  • Napa Gold 1334 (preferred alternative)
  • Denso 150-2043 (preferred alternative)

On tires and wheel size:

Observation:
Stock size Bridgestone RE-71 spin in gears 1-4 during acceleration. And at 80mph in 4th, for instance. Traction control is nearly always engaged.

Conclusion:
Acceleration is traction limited. I need stickier or wider tires for the level of power currently in the car. Prefer wider as much stickier approaches race rubber and loses some safety in the rain.

I would like to go to an 18x9.5 +22 with 265's, and save some weight doing it.
