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: .

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.
