New EVO owner and Forum member with some querries

Hello All,
Just bought a new, untitled 08 EVO MR. What a deal $$$ on a great car. I am totally impressed with the car - power and mileage are great.
Question: What do the owners do to treat the Ricaro leather seats?
What cold air intake system is recommended and looks good when the hood is opened?
Having a ball with the car. I added a great stereo/Nave/Bluetooth/iPod-iPhone/Sat/rear camera radio.

Welcome and congrats on your purchase!

As for cleaning leather seats, dont use anything that contains waxes or oils. For a basic cleaning, I would use a slightly damp cloth, and then dry it with another cloth immediately after. Im sure you can find some sort of leather cleaner (that is water based) at some sort of store like Autozone or Advanced Auto.

I found a couple of Cold Air Intake systems that might meet what youre looking for...
AMS Cold Air Intake 2008 + Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Evo X - Modern Automotive Performance

K&N 69-Series Typhoon Cold Air Intake Mitsubishi EVO X 08+

With getting an intake for a car, I would also recommend getting a new exhaust system and a tune as well. It will breathe better and when you see a significant gain in power as well.

the evo X is a awesome car. lots of potential. to clean the seats just be gental with fabric cleaner. as for intake a cold air is not necessary because your intercooler will cool down the charged air anyway. Either way a intake and exhaust will open up your evo X

Thanks for the info


Seats look good. Had a dyno tune. Result 297 HP with 296 Torque at the wheels
K&N filter in original air box, manual boost control and computer tune with 3 dyno runs
Not bad for $690.00 I get 25.6 MPG at 65 mph with plenty of power
