350BHP to 400BHP? More Power?

Hi all,

I have now had my Evo 6 for 8 months or so and was wondering if it is worth upping the power on it. It is currently running 350bhp/350lbs from a 3 port boost solenoid, HKS mushroom filter, decat and custom exhaust.

Not that I'm bored of the power but just wanted a view from people, if it would be worth going for the 400bhp mark? Would there be any noticeable difference? Or should I just save the money?

Thanks.

Personally wouldn’t bother unless you’re going to take the engine out.

I think you'll probably notice a difference going up by another 50hp, more so if the torque also increases in a similar fashion.

Obviously it's then down to the cost to get it there reliably...

Don't forget about it not just the power, it's also the suspension and brakes, which on their own can help you go faster than just pure bhp increases...

You would definitely feel 50bhp I could feel the difference with 30bhp more

If your brakes make your car faster I'd probably have a word with whoever fitted them

The clutch is often an area that struggles with the increase in Torque but 50bhp will definitely be felt...

I did this years ago and was never entirely happy. It costs quite a bit to do safely and yes you can feel it but you inevitably compromise normal driving comfort in traffic. I got to 430hp with this setup before I gave in and invested in a proper 560hp package - now that is worth doing if you want a significant performance upgrade. Otherwise enjoy it as it is
