Not too power hungry and you want 350-375 whp? :laugh: That's about 400-450 crank HP. To achieve that you'll probably need some combination of cams, manifold-back exhaust, bigger FMIC, bigger turbo, standalone engine management system, intake system, fuel pump, cylinder heads, and an upgraded clutch to handle the extra power. Probably around $10k-$15k after you factor in dyno time, labour, etc. I'd set aside another $5k if I were you for when the engine blows up, as it inevitably will if you use the car a lot at this level of power.qmr510 said:I just got my Evo VIII and I not to power hungry but I would like more than what I have. Can anybody tell me what basic mods there are to just get 350-375 whp? Thank you! :thumb: :thumb:
this was done on a dynojet i think :thumb:turbolarry said:It's not that expensive, and stuff is easy to install (OK, maybe not cams & exhaust housing).
For dyno achieved 348awhp and 345 torque (91 oct/22psi.);
10.5 exhaust housing
Walbro fuel pump
Denso 720cc injectors
turbo back exhaust
manual boost controller
Everything else on the car is stock, stock airbox, stock air filter, stock clutch, stock bov, stock ic, stock ic piping, stock plugs, stock plug wires, stock fuel rail, no grounding kit, etc.
Throw in the intercooler/piping and there's the 350+
Yeah, that's only $8-9k in parts right there. He might need someone to install the parts and tune the car if he can't do it himself. Dyno time, plus labor - Tam was almost dead-on with his $10-15k estimate.blackawd said:visit automotosports.com and get stage 1 through 4 and you wil be plenty satisfied. :thumb:
my bad, in order to acheive the 350-400whp all you will need is the stage 1-3 from ams which is only about 4200 minus labor, most of that stuff is no brainers any way. ams street tune is less than 200$ and im sure they have done enough evo's to get you dialed right in.Ludachris said:Yeah, that's only $8-9k in parts right there.

Again, any time you're spending $10k on a car, I wouldn't call it "basic" mods. It's no small project. If you do it yourself, you better know what you're doing. And you better have some extra money in the budget for when things break.
:thumb:vtluu said:A couple thoughts:
- Some places will bundle up a bunch of go-fast parts and call it a performance "package". However a collection different parts sold together with a modest discount is not a "package". A package is a bundle of parts/mods that have been thoroughly tested and tuned as a combination. If anything I would expect a package to cost more, not less, than the sum of its parts, because of the development time and cost involved in testing and tuning that package--therefore I would be suspicious of any package that came with a significant discount. Ask the vendor how much testing and tuning they themselves have done.
- If you're going to go the route of buying different parts from different vendors, it's probably a bad idea to throw on all the parts at once. The problem is if something goes wrong or doesn't work as well as you think it should, you may not know which of the parts it is that's the source of the problem. Furthermore, you might end up with a less-than-optimal combination. By adding one mod at a time and testing, you can verify that each and every mod you're adding is adding power. If instead you throw on ten different mods at the same time, you might end up with +150 hp but one of those mods may actually be sucking away 10 hp and you might never know it.
