So, a couple of months have passed since the last update. And since I have made some changes in the last weeks I decided to update this

First of all was the install of the Ohlins Coilovers. I let them settle and adjusted the ride height to the Ohlins manual just to get a baseline and feel of how the car drivers with the standard set up. After they settle, I went and performed a proper 4 wheel alignment with a friend of mine.

Some pictures during the process :







And a picture of the underside



The final aligment values were :

Front :

- 2,5 º Camber and 0 Toe, 3º of Caster

Rear :

-1,0º Camber and 0 Toe

Why did I choose this settings? Simple. I don´t like understeer and like to have some adjustability. I learn to drive on very loose cars and and I like rotation and adjustability. And as the majority off cars the Evo loves front camber.

With the Ohlins installed the car was transformed. Using the Ohlins damper settings (10 Clicks from max if I remember right) the is a little stiff at low speeds as you may imagine but once on the move it starts to work, and the suspension has levels off control that the Oem only can imagine, besides the Oem having now 20 years, so not a fair comparison to be fair. Now on the limit the car is much more neutral and lifting the accelerator initiates rear rotation that I deeply enjoy. The suspension has very good compression travel and droop, so I really like it and for me was worth the money.

Besides installing the Ohlins I installed some new sway Bushings on the front and rear, I installed Original Mitsubishi ones. The rear were simple but the fronts were a pain in…you know

Time for a update. Nothing major, but a couple little things that were on my mind to perform.

Decided to remove the rust from the SAS valve and give it a fresh coat of Hight Temperature Paint.





Not perfect , but miles better than it was before.

Then I decided to have the original strut brace sand blasted and painted in silver . The original finish was letting the engine bay down. In the last picture you can also see the SAS valve now in place.





One thing that was bothering me was the coolant tank vent tube. It was the original one and was in miserable state as you may see.



Ordered a new one from Mitsubishi



And much, much better



I also ordered these bonnet stops since mine were missing.






Then I decided to take care of the injector harness.

The state it was




And all replaced



As you may notice the bolts in the engine bay were starting to show their age. So I ordered new bolts .







After this I noticed that I never took care of my rear lights.

Before



During



And the final result



I also decided to wash the engine bay and gave it a coat of wax to protect everything.



I need to get rid of these blue hoses. If anyone has some black ones not used and is willing to sale , pm me

After all these litle jobs I went to perform the annual inspection (Your MOT) .

Of course , decided to Rain as soon as I got the car out of the garage…



Empty mountain roads


At the inspection center (Yes, the rain was only for getting the car dirty, didn´t last long the rain)





The Inspector said it was flawless , happy times.

very beautiful car! and a lot of work, in order to achieve perfection in detail!

it's not the original speedometer ?

in an RS-2, it's a black dial with 260 km/h speedo normally...

edit: I'm thinking your speedo is from an E5 GSR ( white dial and 180 Km/h speedo like japanese car)

Hello Thank you very much !

Yes, the original speedometer is the black version with 260 km/h. I instaled this one from a E5 as you say because I like the red lighting

Hello guys!

Time for a small update, but a frustrating one!

A couple weeks ago I went for a drive I noticed a weird sound. It turned out it was my cooling fan. I assume 20 years is fair enough and she deserved retirement .

I went online to see what were my options and found that Mishimoto made a shroud with two 13” fans. Before buying I searched on MLR and found two people that could not fit the shroud due to clearances with the Turbo actuator. But to be honest, not much information was released.

Knowing this, I decided to contact Mishimoto to clarify this issue. They asked me where I have seen this issues, and I provided the MLR threads stating it. They came back to me and assured me that I would be a “one off” problem, and I could buy with confidence. So I did that.

So here is the shroud when it arrived:




Test fit...



Test fit...


And then the problems began !




As you can see, there is not enough clearance due to the Turbo / Actuator, just as other people have mentioned here on MLR.

I went ahead and decided to take a few measurements .

From the radiator core to the actuator you have about 38mm.



The shroud with the fan in place have 73mm thickness …


And the fan itself has 57mm.



Great, just great

I decided to contact Mishimoto, since I have raised this question before and was reassured that everything would fit. They first question was this (literaly copied from my gmail ) :

“Filipe,

Do you know if the vehicle was ever in an accident?

Are the turbo parts stock?”

You can imagine what i wanted to call them...


Well, I am still discussing this trough email with them. I am disbelieved by their customer service and engineering (??) background.
