New Evo owner here! Just looking for more inspiration and insight on these awesome cars! As i learn i look forward ti helping others and returning the wisdom!
Some parts are expensive but the quality is crap..it depends what you buying.In my experience removing balance shaft is beneficial and I drove the car with and without and there is no difference. Usually balance shaft equipped to engines with over 2.0l like 2.2 onwards don't know why they put it on 2.0L engine Regarding the head gasket not sure..I've used Evo9 one mine,pretty much everything on my engine is from Evo9 and is 5 layers.Cheap parts on a expensive buuld...smh. Like is removing the balance shaft really beneficial? Is a evo 8mr head gasket better than a 9mr?
And all input is welcome..i just wanted the serious street /track racers to chime in, because they have the real , first experience when cars break down and spend the time repairing them.
Thank you all in advance
No probs at all Mine is home build from different parts and FWD only..Stock UK Mitsubishi Lancer 4G63 N/A 135bhp converted to turbo,custom exhaust manifold,Mahle pistons,Evo9 Oil Filter Adapter,Evo9 oil sump and strainer pipe,Evo 9 oil pump,Balance shafts delete.Custom Oil Cooler,Evo9 Head Gasket,Evo9 coolant pipe with Evo9 thermostat housing,Evo8 MR stock cams,running on Evo7 brains. Also N/A 5 speed gearbox with quaife lsd to keep the traction.Brakes from Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 mivec twin piston calipers instead of single,bigger brake disks,green stuff 6000 series pads all round..and many other mods LoLGreat information! I plan on refreshing the engine since the transmission is out already and i can get to the main rear seal..i wasnt sure but now i feel better knowing evo 9 parts i.e. head gasket etc fit well. If you dont mind me asking whats you setup on your evolution?
