Hi
My name is Bud
I am French owner of Mitsubishi Lancer evo 9
Yesterday on the dyno i broken my engine ( problem of spark plug broken)
I will start to open my engine and make complete maintenance of engine and small upgrade.

I want stay 2.0l cylinder.
I am interesting by long conrod ( Manley +6mm more long compare to stock) with Manley piston
Do you have some feedback or experience with the Manley parts?

Do you have some advice for me?

In advance thank you very much
Bud

I have the Manley H beam rods in my 9, standard 150mm length ones, recommended and fitted IMO by one of the best engine builders there is, Norris, so if they're good enough for him to use then I think you'll be fine with them... :thumbup:

Pistons-wise I'm unsure on Manley, I'm still on stock ones..

There are also a lot of other makes of rods which are available, and of course range in price, Carillo are probably considered one, if not the best, but it will probably depend of what your application is, i.e. 450-500bhp build, or 500-600 or even 600+...might help you decide which to go to (but then I beams might be more applicable if you're going for the bigger build anyway)...

Also going Long Rod might restrict your option of rod make, I'm sure some of the traders will chip in with what is currently available though.

Sorry to hear about your issues, but is a chance to rebuild stronger like what you're plannig anyway, so good luck :smthumbup. Where in France are you based, and who will be doing the work, GL Racing, or someone else / yourself...?

They normally break for a reason

Yes it is true
I will have more information when I finish to open the engine.

I start to check for piston and Conrod.
I need to change piston.

Just I start to have some information and advice about the quality for the 4 pistons and conrod.

My car set up is:
Engine management is plug in link G4+ with map sensor,
Injectors ID 1000cc
Exhaust pipe from full race
Exhaust miltec down pipe and catback.
Turbo is stock

I want stay on engine 2.0l and keep power between 450/500hp

Regards

That's a easy basic spec engine to achieve that power. Do you have a copy of the map or pictures of the pistons or head.

Broken spark plugs are caused by a bad tune.

Either pre ignition or detonation.

Your knock control probably doesn't work and that's the most critical part of the computer.
With a link G4....it won't work with the stock knock sensor.
