Evo 8 400MR vs 340MR - Differences?

Hi all,

Quick question, apart form power output, were there any significant differences between the engines of the 340 and the 400 cars?
Just wondering how 400 was reached and how involved it was etc.

Had a bit of a search but not found anything which is probably down to my poor use of the search engine - hence the question.......

cheers

Google seems to do a better job than the forum search for some reason.

HTH

Evo 8 400 was a special edition

Nothing special about the Evo 8 340 that’s just a lightly tweaked stock GSR

Nothing to do with my question but thanks anyway and good to know a 340 is nothing special.
Wish I had known before bought one but hey ho. Lol

Any car with an Evo Lancer Badge stuck on it is "special"

This shows all of the models.

There are some subtleties with the 320 v 340. The engine/ performance spec is irrelevant IMO as most cars will be knocking on 400hp anyway.
The main thing will be the interior, and again IMO, the 340 Ralliart leather trimmed doors and seats are better interior over the stock Recaro trimmed seats in the 320.

On the road the tuned 320/ 340 at 400hp will be far more fun and useable over the FQ400, not to mention cheaper to buy in the first place.

Thanks Mate - Helpful that.
I see the 400 was forged etc. I am not taking my 340 to 400 but am hoping that engine/turbo etc is good for 380 ish. Am sure loads out there are running that power or more on stock engine.

cheers

Yes, should be easy. There are several highly recommended and experienced tuners that will help you make that power in relative safety. There is/ was a thread on here about hitting 400/400. May have to google it if the forum search doesnít bring it up
