Hew DeLa's Modified 1998 Mitsubishi Evo 5 Sedan

I bought this car from an owner who put a lot of love into it, and from there I turned it up to 11. It’s seen a lot of track time.

Identified a few areas for improvment on the car after taking it to the track, first and foremost the KU36 rubber was not really cutting the mustard…next time I’m going to step it up again with some federal RSR’s, whilst they are still just an Ultra high performance street tyre they should last a more than a few laps before going off.

Power was the next problem I was having…being pretty much stock power wise my brother in his red evo 5 was walking away from me on the straights…I set about amending this last friday by fitting the dump pipe, front pipe and race cat I’ve had sitting in my shed for ages now.

On E85 with my 22psi actuator and the uprated fuel system it makes 270kW at the wheels. Crazy power but it gets around 21.4l/100km (10.9MPG).
