Just an idea - either way keep up the good work!
It certainly would help people out to put prices and suppliers on, but next month they'll all be out of date and there are so many alternatives out there I just don't think it's viable.

It's an easy thing for people to ring up their tuner or follow the links in the trader section to browse the various options on line though.

Have just purchased a standard EVO 9 360MR

To take it to 400+ can be done with a remap, so will l need fuel pump and cone filter?


Also if l go ECU change something like Vipec then that would be great for future upgrading?

Cheers

Dave it'd be better for you to go standalone for a few reasons 1) it won't be stage 1 for long 2) I see you'll be tracking it a fair bit 3) It'll make life easier when getting new parts fitted (assuming you'll be getting it done by Mark) as he won't touch the stock ecu.

Yes looks like it will be standalone, will get it booked into marks

great read, in the same situation as you running around 350-359bhp want a bit more, my tuner said my evo will be good for 80kmiles like this, which is safer cams or bigger turbo? on standard internals

The Lower IC pipe looks very restrictive at only 1.8".

Is it worth changing this for 2.5" or isn't it noticable at all?

On EvoM it is concidered a good modification.

I know the lower drivers side intercooler pipe was often changed on the Evo VI due to the fact the it was "flattened" and restrictive.
If changing this pipe on an VI make sure you get a good hard pipe which has fixing points/bracket otherwise it will "blow off" under boost

The newer cars that come with the HKS hard pipes should be much better and more free flowing.

As Big Al mentioned, only the VII FQ-300, VIII 260, VIII MR FQ-300 and IX FQ-300 out of the UK cars didn't come with the HKS Lower Intercooler Pipe I believe.

The JDM imported cars obviously will come with the smaller LIP as stock as well, but I don't have any experience of whether it's a worthwhile mod or not.

Perhaps someone with those cars can comment on before and after results?

Probably a stupid question, but how does getting to 400bhp on my IX MR affect fuel consumption? It isn't exactly great at standard 366bhp, so would going to 400bhp with the walbro pump be even worse or would I not notice it.

This will sound like a cop-out answer but it will depend on the mapping.

My old VI was mapped from 300bhp -360bhp, the power went up, it passed MOT with the De-CAT fitted and fuel consumption remained the same from what I remember.

I'm new to the site and this thread has answered so many questions. Great work.

Can anyone tell me, do tuners generally offer the typical stage 1 mods in a 'package', or do most people have to acquire them separately and then take them along for installation and mapping?

Indigo GT / TRL / FQ Performance (to name just a few) sell complete packages to get you to stage 1 power, and from my experience (buying separately ) they look like very good value

The stock map on most Evo's is a tad rich so I think in most cases the remap done after changing parts helps to 'consolidate' the fuel consumption

Just changing the downpipe, decat and cat-back exhaust without a remap saw my fuel economy plummet to 15 mpg! A Little rich methinks The key I think to sustaining the MPG is the remap.

Most, if not all tuners will offer a stage 1 tuning package.

The vast majority of stage 1 tuning packages are basically the same.
Specific parts will vary from tuner to tuner and as such so does the price.

eg: Some tuners recommend a standalone ECU (Autronic, Motoec, Apexi to name a few) where as others are happy to remap the standard ECU (EcuTek) the price difference between just this option could be as much as £1000-£1500
