well first off, i would like to know how many people here have evo's (any evolution is good), then i guess ill go from there cuz I have some questions about the evolutions like mainly the difference between the regular evo's ( MR included) and the tommi ones. There are alot of things I like to know because I'm looking to tune my evo ix and im thinking of using a turbo from the tommi verison one.

Thanks

First off, you should probably find your forum... google search "evolution forums" or something like that. You'll learn way more that way then asking kids on CR. I doubt half the community drives, much less owns the cars they drive in their dreams. There are 4 different editions of the Evo.. the standard grandma's car, rallisport small upgrades but still a grandma's car, then the SE and MR which is the special edition and Mitsubishi Racing.. The SE comes with some dope shit, but the MR takes it away with some coilovers and other additions that are quite nice. The "tommi" version you speak of was only for the Evo VI in which was never launched in America unfortunately. They released an Evo VI - Tommi Makinen version of the car in celebration of Tommi totally dominating WRC. The TM version came with a different body kit, along with some nice tune ups and suspensions.

I would highly recommend finding yourself a forum to go to, seeing as how there are limited drivers, much less evo drivers on CR.. Make sure you use the search function when finding your forum, it's annoying when "noobs" just come into a forum and ask questions already answered.

Good luck.

yeah, those "evo forum" webpage would be nice, but that means i have to join and thats the complicated part. see, i don't really have the time to be joining a webpage that i will probably only use like 5 times only...im not really looking to make my evo a monster. the only reason why im asking about the tommi one is that (well, because) i found a performance webpage that sells the tommi turbo and was just wondering the difference between the one i have now and that one. plus i heard some people say the tommi was the best evo's ever made.

You really need to go to the evo forum.. it couldn't be harder than making an account to join it, or you might not even have to in order to find your answers. You're just being lazy.. sigh.. It's quite annoying that you're this lazy about your car, i would expect it from a kid my age, but come on. First off reading one webpage that sells the tommi turbo and listening to what other people say about a car are totally wrong things to do. Find out the facts, will the turbo work with your car, will it give you turbo lag, does it have more top end power, does it spool faster? Sure the tommi was an excellent car, i would love to have one. But just because someone says they're the best cars ever made doesn't make it true. I highly doubt who ever said that has ever driven one and probably doesn't know jack shit about it. Seriously, you need to go to the evo forums, sell your car, or google search. You're not going to find answers amongst the 80% population of 13 year olds. I will use this against other evo owners in proof that subaru reigns supreme.

heres a good evo forum www.evolutionm.net
i'll try to answer your questions but i know shit lol

evo mr is the more convenient one, has automatic windows/radios and such

evo rs is built just for racing, has roll up windows, took out the radios...performance wise they should be the same.

tommy ones were from the evo VI i believe and they were only sold in the UK so good luck trying to find parts in the U.S

If your looking to tune an evo look in to EVOSCAN and OpenECU. Bacically a free self tuning package you just need to buy a cable. Its a 255 point map so you need to learn your shit. The tommi turbos are good. But are definatly not worth the price. Basically all it is a stock 16g turbo made with a differnent material that shaves weight off the turbine wheel and turbine housing giving you faster spool. Save your money. A stock evo turbo can make over 450whp.

MRs basically has more amenities and has a better suspension setup for the track better bov..etv. The RS is just a run down base model.

Go on evoM and learn. Your 24 and I cant belive your that lazy. And its not about just going on a few times cause on those forums you actually save money. Like the tuning thing I bet you basically didnt know about that. Or the free mods you can do. And being smart about not just buying brand name expensive parts. In the evo world in the US almost nobody cares about tommi or that other hype JDM stuff.

Sorry if I sound like a prick but I can stand people who wont look up stuff themselves and expect to get spoon feed information. If you have a passion for the car the least you can do is learn about it yourself and not just ask for hand outs.

lasthope05 is right, if you should have a passion for your evo 9 at all, be willing to look up info about you car, don't be lazy, just search for certain things and you'll find what you need, the internet is a vast place of information and your bound to find any questions or answers you need. in order for you to understand your car, you need to learn everything about it, you will get a feel for it and you might not be able to stop; with your own car there are so many possibilities, especially if you have an evo. doing little research will help you know you can already get alot of power out of your evo by doing simple things, the 4g63 is a powerful motor and the base setup can already make the car even more vicious with tuning from an ecu. don't expect to get your perfect answer though, that's what takes time, and youll learn more from it. hope you have good luck with your evo, you need to have a feel for it if it is to go anywhere faster.
you can start off with basics though, you don't need a tommi evo 6 turbo, an open element filter, a free flowing exhaust system, s.s. turbo manifold, s.s down-pipe, bov and a ecu tune will give you a really nice bump in power.

I agree with everyone else who posted before me. Join an actual Evo forum and get your information there. Not that there aren't some creditable people on CR when it comes to cars, and in your case, Evos, but joining a forum that's actually dedicated to Evos is certainly the best way to learn what it is that you want to know.

I'll say this, whether you decide to use an account on an Evo forum for 5 times or 5,000 times makes no difference. The only thing that matters is whether the information you get is reliable (an Evo forum) vs the information you get on some other forum (CR, which isn't all that reliable when it comes to cars) and what you do with that information. I sure as Hell would be pissed and would be kicking myself in the ass if I fucked up my car, all because I was too lazy to spend a mere few minutes joining a forum dedicated to my own personal needs and wants, and instead opted for some unreliable second rate source.

Just saying...

You should consider yourself lucky !! In canada, the only EVO of choices are the EVO 1 and EVO X , but among all the generations, the EVO IX MR EDITION looks the best. I'll get the EVO X MR after finishing University. They got diplomated discount here =)

yeah i do agree with everyone here,

you get better info on forums or even try wiki haha.


Although I see that you are in the US. so an evo is easy access.

if you dont have too much money go pick up a evo 8.

if you got some money to spend an evo 9.

personally i dont know how they drive never been in one.


i drive a evo x, and i can say its probably the most luxirous out of the whole evo line, hence "evolution,"

but yeah its quite heavy and very "un tuned" stock but theres already hundreds of cars that got a simple
aftermarket air filter and a tune. jumped from about 230-240 whp to 305-315 whp.

thats the craziest spike ive seen from a basic tune and an air filter.

its a nice car but im still a domestic car fan.

check out my pictures i might have a picture of it on there
