    Hi all,
    just registered :)
    i got an evo 3 in black. obviously quite old now, and a little bit modified.....fat exhaust, lowered, boost controller, gauges, some small vinyls, a vortex generator (yet to be fitted)....

    A Vortex resonator. Creates a vacuum in the exhaust which sort of sucks the air through the exhaust and reduces back pressure.

    not heard of that one,
    theres the one i posted up that supposedly swirls the air through the intake to aid combustion or the ones that stick onto the body, normally the roof, to air areodynamic stability

    Hi Mikek and a warm welcome to TorqueCars, its good to have you along. Sounds like you are going to have some real fun with your car. I'd be curious to know if the Vortex Generator makes much of a difference so let us know when you have it fitted.

    hi everyone, thanks for the warm welcome:)

    i just posted a link to a pic of the vortex gen, but the post is delayed while an admin checks it by the look of things!
    it's carbon fibre, but really just a bit a bling:amazed: .

    :blink1: i'm doing a public service!
    it's costing me a fortune atm. gotta pick up a new (2/hand) gearbox tomorrow from essex. oh well, she's worth it:)

    if anyone's interested, it's a rubbish quality, but here's a vid of me at santa pod last year (listen to the kid in the background:))

    I have a Evo3 1.5L 2000 asian model.. Mine is a a non-turbo and planning to turbo.. Can anyone tell me how do we bring down the compression ratio (needed before planting the turbo unit) of the engine? Is it configurable through ECU mapping or have to manually fix the engine?

    no idea mate, but surely the actual compression ratio is determined by the physical aspects of the cylinder / piston stroke / thickness of head gasket, so i would suspect that it is unable to be changed by ecu mapping.

    perhaps thicker h/g or re-engineer piston rods (shorter) etc.

    Can we flash the ecu of an Evo3 1.5L 2000 asian model?
