Complete noob power advice

Hi all,

Im completely new to the forum and new to owning an Evo. Owning an Evo * has been a dream of mine for many years and I finally picked up a completely stock JDM Evo 8.

My question is regarding power increase. I don't want to go mad, so what are the "first steps" to getting some extra power from the engine?
Based on my own research, I've made a list of the following;

1. Induction kit (HKS is my choice)
2. high flow exhaust (HKS again)
3. remap? (not sure where though, Im based in South West)
4. Possibly needs a new fuel pump after a map?

Any advice is welcome

Andy

Needs the fuel pump before the map not after.

will need to be full exhaust 3" including downpipe and decat to get best figures.

Induction or airbox mod (do a search and you will find out how to do this)

And like stated most certainly the fuel pump before mapping.

What mods are already on it and what model 8 is it you have?

Itís completely stock. Which is what I wanted as I wanted to be the first to make mods.
Itís a JDM FQ300. So the one with the carbon wing.

Iíd like to push a little extra HP out of it. But Iím not chasing big numbers.
Nothing that will cost thousands and require new clutch and rods and valves and so on

FYI - Your car is a JDM Evo VIII, carbon spoiler is standard. The FQ300 is a tarted up version created by "Mitsi UK"

Power wise, with the mods suggested, you'd be looking at 350/360 ish

Russ fellows decat and cat back exhaust would be my choice. loud or quiet up to you. A ctec modular turbo elbow and down pipe would be nice also.
