Thought I'd better start a progress thread as I've been on here a while now and not really posted much I bought the car in March and am slowly working my way round it, although not much needs doing just adding a few changes here and there. Its a 1996 Evo 4 GSR, owned for the last 6 years by an MLR member with the following spec list: Internal Engine Specs and details: Skunk 2 Camshafts Brian Crower I Beam steel rods – Rated 800+ BHP CP Forged pistons Mitsubishi Oil pump Mitsubishi Water pump Mitsubishi Belts and pulleys Mitsubishi Gaskets and seals Up rated Lifters ARP Head studs ARP Mains ACL Race bearings MG Auto spec Ported and polished cylinder head and up rated valve springs New valves Lightened, lapped and polished crank by John Wilcox RC Evo 4 Sump NGK BPR8ES Spark plugs Millers 10w/40 FS Competition Oil and genuine filters Engine externals: Hel Performance turbo oil line feed and filter – (Head feed blanked) Hel Performance Large 19 Row FM oil cooler (Located LHS Air duct) S/S Braided hoses and Aeroquip fittings Powder coated blue rocker cover with 2 x -10 breather outlets by Neverneverman Neverneverman oil breather and catch tank system with Powder coated tank and aeroquip hose and fittings Blue silicone hoses throughout for coolant and turbo pipe work Turbo and exhaust: Evo 9 80 Series Turbo Ported Evo8 MR OEM exhaust manifold and heat wrapped Ported turbo elbow Full Magnex turbo back 3” exhaust system with 5” tail pipe and de-cat pipe Fuel and Air: Walbro 255L fuel pump Hard wired fuel pump Large powder coated hard pipe turbo intake and large cone air filter 750 CC RC Fuel Injectors Tial Anodised blue BOV Welded into Intercooler pipe work Large front mounted intercooler and hard pipe work throughout Transmission / Drive train: Exedy up rated Evo 9 Clutch kit Evo 9 Flywheel Evo 4 Driveshafts Evo 6 gearbox Evo 6 Transfer Box Evo 8 MR Rear AYC Diff Management and Electronics: Evo 7 ECU – Remapped by MG AUTOS with Ecuflash Gizzmo boost controller STACK Boost gauge Battery relocated to boot Pioneer CD/FM/AM/AUX/IPOD Stereo Suspension, Wheels, Tyres and Brakes: Tein adjustable coilovers Full geometry set up by MG AUTOS Speedline 17” white alloy wheels – Refurbished 2013 Yokohama Prada spec 2 tyres 215/40/R17 Approx 6mm tread all round Evo 9 BREMBO front and rear brakes – Refurbished and painted 2013 Performance Friction front and rear brake pads Hel performance S/S braided calliper brake lines Interior/Exterior: Suede Sparco steering wheel and Lifeline motorsport snap off adaptor Fully under sealed for protection in the UK. Tinted rear windows and rear screen Fire extinguisher I normally run it at 1.4bar but 2.0bar is just a touch of a button away should the need arise The day after I picked it up: About a month after buying I booked in for a trackday at Blyton Park, however on a noise test a couple of weeks prior to the trackday I discovered it was kicking out 110db so managed to get booked in at MG Autos for some noise reduction and got it down to 98db. The car performed very well on track apart from the tyres were useless in the wet during the morning but it sooned dried and all was going well until I warped the front discs! I went for Godspeed grooved discs allround with kevlar pads, iv literally just finished bedding these in! and underneath with the reworked exhaust system I went to Thoresby Classic Car show with a mate of the Celica Club and managed to win runner up in best 1990's catergory Last Sunday I also attended Parson Drove show, again with the Celica lot, I managed to sneak in the middle That's about up to date now There's a knocking on the back end which I need to sort, not quite sure what's causing it yet though. A 45,000mile service is going to be done around October time along with the underside being freshly undersealed. Next mods would probably be a strut brace and a spare set of wheels for track use. I might look at some carbon bits aswell but unsure on that yet.
