The new issue of SCC has some info on the Evo X (but nothing about the cams/turbo);
"The new MIVEC, higher compression, and new turbo design contribute to a claimed 20 percent increase in boost response at low engine speeds..."
Retard the exhaust cam or the timing maybe???
"Although some people see the use of an all-aluminum block and software -particular TC-SST transmission as the end for serious Evo tuning, Mitsubishi has left some leeway. The manual transmission isn't tied into the Gestapo stability and engine management computers. And the company left out direct injection, which at least allows tuners to upgrade to larger injectors and use conventional fuel pump upgrades. Mitsubishi also managed to pass evaporative emissions with a return type fuel system, which saves the hassel of replumbing new lines for fuel thirsty big boost."
Appearently the aluminum blocks are cast with a reinforcing "ladder structure" for added strength too.
Evo X GSR: 3344 lbs.
Evo X MR: 3388 lbs.
Evo IX: 3263 lbs.
That's a bit more heft.
