Lancer Evolution | Mitsubishi : June 5, 2020
Jamie brought us his 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX to push it over the 800awhp mark!
Up first in the shop, Alex removed the existing fuel pump assembly and Hobbs switch activation setup, and installed a new billet fuel pump hanger assembly from BulletProof Racing loaded with twin 525lph in-tank fuel pumps from Walbro Fuel Pumps, routed -8AN fuel feed line and -6AN fuel return line utilizing components from Fragola Performance Systems and Vibrant Performance, and topped it off by wiring the second fuel pump for EMS activation (rather than relying on a stand-alone sensor), all to optimize the existing setup featuring a built 2.3L stroker bottom end, CNC ported cylinder heads, S3 camshafts from GSC Power-Division, HLA upgrade from Kiggly Racing, 2,150cc fuel injectors from Fuel Injector Clinic, turbocharger system from Extreme Turbo Systems featuring a 6466 from Precision Turbo & Engine with pressure control from TiAL Sport, all controlled via Infinity 506 stand-alone engine management system from AEM Performance Electronics.
With the mechanical work wrapped in the shop, Matt strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom Flex Fuel calibration via Infinity. Starting off with 93 octane in the tank, and the 6466 delivering 25psi, output increased to 645.88awhp & 502.06lbft. Then with E85 in the tank, and boost pressure increased to 36psi, output increased to a goal exceeding 816.77awhp & 643.56lbft! We're sure Jamie's going to have an absolute blast with the new performance!
