Hi guys,

I would like some help concerning my Evo6.
Just after my trip to the Nurburgring, it felt like I had no power over 4000 revs. I changed the wastegate, which was damaged, but the probleme is still there.
Everytime I step on the throttle, the turbo starts spinning at 3000 rpm and at 4000, no more power...
Can anyone help me with that?

Thanks

Tarik

I'm only just starting to figure out these turbo motors, but is it possible you are lossing boost presue at the dumpvalve. I.e the membrane that operates the dump valve has split.. Or is it a piston type ?
I may be talking crap however. Try a proper turbo specialist like these guys; www.turboboost.freeserve.co.uk
Let us know the results eh, just in case we ever get the same problem http://www.ltregister.force9.co.uk/graphics/Happy.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| middle >
Especially as I'm thinking about visiting the 'ring once I get some stuff together (and my wife ejects sprog)

There is no connection with my trip to the ring, I think it is just a minor problem, like a valve failure somewhere. Anyway, I send the car back to the garage I bought it to (they are Evo specialists, and know them), so I'll know by the end of the week. I'll let you know, 'cause it is very frustrating not to have all the power on such a car.
By the way, I recommend the 'ring. It is very nice, and I suggest you have a co-driver with a map of the track and play it like a special stage, with the notes; a very effective system.

As for the scoobys, I still trash them, even without ANY turbo on the car... Big boys rules

Cheers

Hi everyone,

I have the results concerning the loss of power of my Evo 6. After checking, there was no mechanical malfunction; there was a wire that was disconnected from the calculator (of 32 wires, the one that controled the wastegate), probably due to a schock during hard driving at the 'ring. Thus the wastegate could not operate propoerly, and was left open, not letting the pressure build (that was why the turbo started spinning, then stopped at once, with no more power coming).

However, this could only be seen by Evo specialists, who are used to run and repair rally cars (so they know every bit of the car), who found the probleme in less than an hour (I had left it at a mitsubishi dealer for 2 weeks before that!).
So take care not to leave your cars between unexperienced hands, that could be very hazardous. I won't ever again

Cheers

Tarik
