Spotlight: EVA – MrLongWang’s Evo X

Posted: 31 January 2011 by SchwarzeMitternacht in CarTok, Spotlight

It has been a long time coming, but here it is: the first car spotlight in Kupitok.

The idea is for me (or other members of Kupitok) to create an article highlighting a car (or any other motor vehicle). The car itself need not be modified, or even be all nice and pretty. Daily drivers, weekend warriors, ‘toys’, all such cars can be put in for a ‘Spotlight’. The spotlight is NOT a full-fledged car review, although we (well, me) at Kupitok would like to do that in the future.

This post really should have been up much, much sooner. But due to a change in my employment, and trying to settle in my new job, this post has been put on the back-burner.

So welcome everybody, to EVA, MrLongWang’s Evo X.

 

 

Just so you lot know, MrLongWang is actually an author for this blog. He just hasn’t made an article yet.

EVA is a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR. It still uses the factory engine and drivetrain combo i.e. 4B11T 2.0 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. It has been lightly modded according to MrLongWang’s preferences, and is, as with most modded cars, still a work in progress.

Let’s start with the engine.

Here’s the 4B11T engine that is the heart of this Evo X. From the above pic, one can actually see that it has been lightly modded with…

an HKS Racing Suction Reloaded intake…

and an HKS SQVII blow-off valve.

Another view of the 4B11T. This engine currently produces 330 HP at the flywheel. Not too bad for what amounts to an intake kit and a boost controller. Shows just how tuneable the all-alloy 4B11T is.

And now, let’s move on to the interior of the car.

The ‘office’. On the left side of the steering wheel, we can clearly see….

an HKS Evolution X-specific EVC VI boost controller has been installed. Mostly hidden by the steering wheel on the right side is….

an Apex’i Auto Timer turbo-timer. On top of the turbo timer is a Defi control/’playback unit’, connected to…

this Defi turbo boost gauge. The gauge is set inside a Carbing meter pod.

Why, you may ask, am I posting this pic on the headlining of EVA? Because it’s not stock. MrLongWang has decided to change his ‘boring’ gray headlining into this black one. This was done to better match the roof of the car.

The roof of the car has now been painted black, along with other various bits of bodywork.

Here we see that the bonnet NACA duct and vents have been painted black…

along with the wing/side vents.

The factory 18-inch Enkei rims have been repainted in white. The wheels have been shod in Michelin’s Pilot Sport PS2 tyres.

Red Oni (Ogre) indeed…

As stated earlier, this car is still a work in progress. Planned mods include Defi oil temperature and oil pressure gauges, along with 18 or 19 inch Volk Racing TE37s, in bronze.
