you missed for the MR's carbon dash inserts. And need to add in the FQ360. + The MR FQ wheels were team dynamics and an import MR were BBS's i think. The FQ 360 had the din gauges as standard

A lot of this is covered in the Evo Essentials owners guide, but if everyone can add lots of detail I'll find a home for it on the site.

Thanks for the info, I've updated the original post.

I think the MRs have carbon effect dashes (at least the 2 I have seen have).

Thanks to Cryptwalk for all the FQ 400 info.

I wasn't aware there was an VIII 360 either in FQ or MR To my knowledge it was 300, 320, 340 and 400 ? Not that i'm any fountain of knowledge or anything and i'm sure i'll stand corrected soon enough

I must admit that I wasn't sure about it and having just trawled the car registry there are none in there, so I'll remove it.

yes you're right of course TF, it's just the 9 that has a 360. that's what i must have been thinking about. Be good to get the 9 specs up as well ? There are also some other subtle changes that the 8 MR's over FQ's, they have like a slightly bigger oil cooler, (more layers), and a twin solonoid, etc

Thanks evo e, the list has been updated.

It'd be good to get all the CT9A models on there, it's an ongoing project, so I'll work on it over the next few days.

Any info is more than welcome!!!

Thanks Nathan, is it just the 360 that has the uprated fuel pump? I remember hearing Oracle say that the 9 pump is superior to the 8 pump?
