Tuning the superb Mitsubishi Evo.

"Evolving the Evo"

Mitsubishi Evo

The EVO is without a doubt one of the most rewarding and easy to drive performance cars around as many TorqueCars members will tell you! Mitsubishi have managed to get excellent power levels from the 2.0 inline 4 engine. Each progressive generation of EVO brings new innovation and refinements.

The 4 wheel drive system is one of the best around and maintains almost unbelievable levels of grip in all conditions during spirited driving.

Later models have more gadgets and give the driver more of a choice on the effect of the traction control systems.

Tuning the Mitsubishi EVO - making a great car even better.

Japanese car makers have an unwritten gentleman's agreement to limit the power output of their cars to a mere 275 bhp. This makes the EVO a desirable car for the car tuning enthusiast.

The later models have so much spare capacity it is relatively simple to increase the power levels. Rallyart continue to show what can be done to this superb car and we see UK models topping 400 bhp. Combine this power with levels of grip and excellent chassis and you have a winning track day and daily runaround.

4 doors makes the EVO a practical proposition for the family, where dad can buy a car that he really wants to drive! Many tuning specialists and evo performance part suppliers are springing up all over the world. A notable mention has to go to Simon Norris of Norris Designs which turns out cars running power levels upto 700 bhp (and more).

The first mods an EVO owner will typically want to do is a sports exhaust system, induction kit and boost controller. More money can be spent uprating the turbo and a wide range of OEM and big turbo conversions are available. For power levels over 400 bhp you should start to strengthen the internal components of the engine if you want to retain its reliability.
