The stock tune is awesome on those cars. You can pick up a good 50-70whp just from tuning them and doing no mods.

It will progress slowly, but to accomplish our goals she's going to need a built lower end And the majority of the parts will be MAP this time around, we learned our lesson in that regard lol.

We've had some come through but we can't recall any names, we need a Cobb like system to keep track by car lol.

Woot for another X in town!

My advice, convert to e85, keep the tune conservative, have fun on the stock turbo w/ bolt-ons for a bit. AutoX the thing (let's organize!). Have fun with it! Do a stock-frame turbo upgrade (perhaps something custom? ) and push the stock bottom-end a bit. Do some IM testing w/ your rev2/rev3 products, a ported stock TB, and the boomba 75mm guy (see the current TB discussion in the tech section) and see what does what. Maybe even a SMIM?

IDK, just focus on wide powerbands and reliability. That's what make evos evos!

Muahaha here we go, get ready to move this discussion to a new thread!

Two of the four best performing manifolds (that I've seen) for the evo8/9 are SMIM, the other two are cast, one of which is a ported stocker. Granted, the SMIMs have a ton of CNC parts so they are not just pure sheet metal, so I think with MAP's fab department a SMIM would be a real trick piece that I'd love to see tested out (with various TB's).

You do realize this is a parts development mule, don't you? I would guess the BPU mods have already been beat to death. I'm guessing this thing is going to go big real soon because there's not as many parts available for that crowd. Besides, Chris has a pretty nice daily driver in case the GGX is in the shop for an extra day or two.

Confirmed that she's still rocking stock exhaust this weekend as I finally got it up on the lift, should have the first modification (air intake) with dyno results done this week!

In the meantime, I used to rock these wheels on my Evo 8, yay or nay? And yes I know it's dirty, we got several inches of snow on Saturday and as I outlined above this is my daily

Looks nice, what size are they? Narrow wheels look funny on X's IMHO

The rims looks good, might look a bit better with a lil wider. I think 9.5" are the perfect size, that's what I wish I went with.

It's hard to tell until you drop the car, I'd assume you are going to drop it a bit at some point. Or you can rock the monster truck style like me

hmm ok, must be the offset that makes scheides' look so sunken in then.

These are 18 x 9.5" Work Emotion CR Kai The outer edge of the wheel lines up almost perfectly with the body line, although I do need some wider tires, they are 245's right now I need 255's or larger. Anyone know if I will have issues with rubbing in the rear?

Lomker should know, he runs 265's on his 9.5's. I don't think he rubs.

What offset are you running?

Go 265's if you get new tires, unless it rubs, fill that rim out!

What is the offset? I run 18x9.5 +28 and it's perfect. Anything more aggressive and you'll want to roll the rears. I'm running Star Specs in 265 but I could run a 275 in an NT05/narrower tire.
