You don’t buy a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 for its 206kW/355Nm 2.0L four-cylinder engine, its rally pedigree, or even its all-wheel drive, you buy an Evo because of what it is capable of when you start playing around with things under the bonnet. Case-in-point is this stroked 2.4L 4G64 Mitsubishi Evolution 9, with a list of engine, suspension and handling modification’s that would put a seven year olds Christmas wish list to shame, it now produces an unbelievable 497.1kW at all four wheels; transforming this, once modest, five-seat sedan into one of the most uncompromising performance cars on the road.
The Evo 9 was an important car for Mitsubishi, for the first time ever, it became a permanent fixture in their Australian lineup. What was previously a limited special order import model, became a realistic performance car alternative to the Australian V8’s on the market. The Evo’s ballistic turbocharged performance captured the hearts of performance car aficionados who opted out of higher displacement engines and started fettling with the turbocharged 2.0L offering from Mitsubishi.
Headlining the engine and driveline modifications, built by Performance Automotive Racing, is the enormous turbocharger GTX 3582r with .82 TIAL V band housing, 1700cc Injectors, Quaife LSD, Manley 4340 Billet 100mm Crank and Manley TT I beam Rods.

DMS coilover suspension, whiteline front and rear sway bars and DBA T2000 slotted Rotors have been installed to ensure the Evo retains its fabled handling characteristics.
