Ok, some of you know that I recently started (and finished now) my build on my 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution MR/Se. So now I get to get on with the pics. So here we go for ya, hope you are able to follow along easily..

Here is what I started with the day I started my build:

Here is a shot of the Engine bay:


Stock turbo running SD (Speed density (aka NO MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor):


Greddy Type S BOV:


Now for all the parts that were ordered, shipped, received and ready to be installed.

Garrett GT3586R Turbo (yes that is a zippo in there to show size comparison)


GSC S2 274 MiVEC Cams


Cam Spec Sheet


FIC 1650cc Injectors (good for both 93 octane and e85)


ARP Headstuds


ARP Rod Studs


GSC Beehive Valve Springs and Retainers


ACL Rod Bearings


Now onto the build pics (this is all that I have as of right now, will be getting more later

Coolant hoses disconnected


Stock manifold almost off


Manifold off


Side by side comparison of the stock turbo and new one

Exhaust Cam installed


Intake Cam out


Intake cam Installed


Cam Gears waiting to go back on and get timed


Oil Pan and Splash Plate removed


Crank and pistons ready for the rod studs and Bearings


From here, I re-installed everything, got the car running and started tweaking the tune and fuel trims. Upon finishing the tune I put down an estimated 550-600awhp. Was out with a friend and we decided to change the oil again (been 300 miles on it wanted to basically just flush the oil). After the oil change was out tweaking the tune for more stabil power when my oil drain plug fell out (was really old and needed a new one and was going to get one the next day) while I was driving down the road, and when the oil light turned on, I shut the car off and pulled to the side of the road. From there, got a new plug (thankfully I knew a guy that had an extra one on hand as it was after stores were closed), put new oil in it (again), and went home. The next day I was headed in to town for lunch when I got off the highway everything seemed fine. Once I started to take off from the off-ramp to the highway I heard the most terrifying and horrible sound to a guy who just got done with a build... KNOCK, lots of it. I trailered the car home (mind you it ran fine at an idle and under 1500rpms, but I didnt' want to risk it. So got it home and tore off the oil pan and splash plate and found the #4cyl had spun a bearing. Now I get to finish my build fully. Going to be porting the head and exhaust mani, and boring the engine a little and run a 2.3L fully forged build that will be able to support about 1000hp, but I'll only be pushing 700ish out of it. So that is my update, and once the bottom end starts getting work done on it, I'll get pics of the teardown and rebuild as I get them. IF you have any questions, feel free to ask..:noworry:

LOL, yeah, well since the rod bearing spun on me, I'm now looking at $1530 just in parts to be shipped to my door, so I have a little saving up to do. Then I need to save up for the Machine shop to clean up and bore the engine block and PNP the heads and valves. After I get the money to do all that, and everything gets together and re-installed, I'll do my break in (won't take me that long) and then I'll have ya come up here for a ride/drive. Let ya get the feeling of 700whp at your hands :nuts:

That would be baller, I've only been in a 386whp one. Give me a time and place, I'll be there! And good luck with the work, hopefully you have an extra car!

nope no extra car atm.. stealing my mom's durango whenever I need it tho :toung:. I was pushing 380hp before I started the build. I dyno'd 376whp before the build. And EvoScan's virtual Dyno (which guesstimates my power ratings based on weight, temp, gear, and time it took to go through the gear), put me at 570ish hp on a rough tune.. We will see though.

Broke timing belt on my 4G69 last week, getting the head refurbished this week. 7 bent valves. Only had 387000Kms on it too. Was due for a belt around 400000.

Well here is a new pic. This is the rod bearing that spun because of an oil plug falling out of the pan....

Well, if this won't get you hard I don't know what will really.. Here is an evo 8 with the EXACT same build I'm going with. 2.3L and has the same turbo I have. The only difference between his car and mine, he has suspension, drag slicks, 10psi more boost (for now), bigger injectors, and a double pumper. Other than that, our 2 cars have the exact same type of build.. Let me know what you guys think:


Here is another video of the 3rd gear pull of the same build just different tuner.


That being said, I will have a 9 second capable evo (obviously once I have the other supporting mods (tranny, transfer, slight upgrades to bolt ons, ect)), once I get my engine back together and running again.

I couldn't agree more!

Are you getting the rev limitor tuned in?
Right now, my rev limiter is tuned for 8700rpms. I would have to remove my balance shafts and do a little more work with the valves if I want to go faster than that with the same amount of boost I'm going to be running through it. But that's all just later on down the road. I figure 8700rpms and roughly 38psi should put me right around 700-720ish whp on e85. So I should be doing fairly well in that area, but I can't push that until I get a better clutch and get my transmission at the minimum in there.

Right now I'm working on my launch tuning maps as well as my NLTS maps. Once I get those done, I'll reflash my ECU and wait til I get my motor back together before working on my full race e85 tune

Yeah, I am still finalizing my touches with my Tephra ECU mod, to which allows me to have completely separate tuning table for launching (or stationary maps). Right now I'm probably looking at launching somewhere between 6500-7k rpms. This along with -8 degrees of timing on my timing map should put me around 18-20psi of stationary boost for my launch, and with the NLTS option dialed in, I won't lose any of my boost between my shifts (just like the ss/tc's have from the factory). So I should be able to run at the slowest a mid 10 second 1/4.:nuts:
