Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

I was busy this morning and knocked out the upper intercooler pipe and modified the ETS intercooler outlet to increase the size to 3".

It should be done at the end of Feb. I need to get 2150 injectors, fabricate the exhaust and finish the electrical mods for the AEM. This thinkg should rip!

Is your 1G ready for next year?

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Looking good brotato, keep up the good work!

I'm going to need a ride in this this summer.

Are you going to drive this on the roads? Or strip only like the DSM?

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

It’s the summer car! It’s going to see the street, maybe the track once since I would prefer to rage the DSM at the strip. It’s the summer car! The DSM sees the street too, I drove it almost 1500 miles last year & burnt through 55 gallons of E98!

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Only 55 gallons on e98? I put 75 threw my car, I guess I drove a lot more then I thought, or my MPG was not that good.

Anyways looks good man, someday I want a fun summercar like this. And I would have no issues running that white corolla this year.

1500 miles on 55 gallons is 27 miles a gallon!

I ran some tanks of E85 through it in the spring before I procured the E98 barrel! I think it gets high teens for mileage on E98, I havenít measured it exactly tho.

High teens isn't bad either for E98 and that power level.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

I finished up the electrical work for the new small battery integration, new Injector connectors, MAP sensor, AIT sensor, connecting the wideband to the AEM EMS, and to finish it off the way the second 255 is staged in. I made my own radius cut weld in bung for the AIT sensor, it cost all of about 20 cents in material! I extended the battery connections and matched the entire factory AWG wiring. Soldered all of the joints and used adhesive lined shrink wrap to cover the solder joints. I finished the job up with split loom that was the factory size. I also machined a little bracket for the MAP sensor mounting, of course overly complicated. This took all Saturday to accomplish and the result turned out great. You cannot tell the any modifications have been performed! I ordered a new T-bolt clamp for the Boomba TB, since all of my 3Ē style clamps will not fit since they are too small. I turned the motor over with no ecu connected to make sure everything was sound. All is good!
Next steps:
Fabricate exhaust & oil catch can
Make a start up calibration for the AEM.
Bleed the ACD
Fill the cooling system with antifreeze
Start the car!

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Looking good! Do you plan on coating or wrapping the exhaust manifold / exhaust housing on the turbo, since they are so close to your radiator?

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

You should thermal disperse coat the radiator, intake manifold, and FMIC like a boss.

And ceramic coat (like I already mentioned) the header, exhaust housing on the turbo, and downpipe... squeeze every damn HP out of it!

I have the non-CDI coil on plug setup. I've seen some posts on EvoM with guys making high 7 and in to the 800WHP dynojet range. It's a weak point, but I'm going to give it a shot! I'm trying not to go absolute overboard unless I'm absolutely sure I need it. Iím still using the AEM twin fire garbage in the 1G, they work great until they fail & never misfired, and you?

Nope no finish treatment on this car, all natural! For the exception of the exhaust wrap on the downpipe to protect the WG, thatís it. No fluff here!
