If you have a turbocharged car one of the best ways to pick up a few extra horses and make things easier on your turbo is to upgrade your intercooler. GReddy has a pretty good history with intercooler upgrades so if you’re rocking an Evo X I’d reccomend their 33F intercooler kit. It’s wider than stock and has bigger inlet and outlet end tanks (70mm). Besides the added performance it just looks fresh behind the front bumper!
In a secret bunker at an undisclosed location engineers from Cosworth USA and Borg Warner have been working together to develop turbocharger upgrade kits for the WRX STi and Mitsubishi Evo X. It looks like a ton of R&D has gone into this initiative and according to Cosworth, these kits may be capable of 1000HP outputs! Expect to see the new turbo “set up” kits available for sale in the coming months. I’ll also try to see if I can snag some more info about this at SEMA.
It has been a long while since I’ve posted any Password:JDM goodies but that hasn’t stopped them from continuing to produce some fresh stuff. Right now they have a special going on in which you can pick up an entire Mitsubishi Evo X carbon kevlar engine packagefor just under $1,400. That isn’t bad considering the quality of these carbon kevlar pieces!
So what do you get in the package? It comes with: cold air intake box, aluminum MAF with velocity stack, high-flow reusable air filter, radiator cooling plate with integrated ram air scoops, engine cover, spark plug cover, and all the hardware you need to mount it on.

X Games is back in town and the entire local automotive culture has gone Rally crazy. There are a few big changes to the Rally event this year versus previous years. The biggest change is the new “Super Rally Cross” format. Before the X Games used a “Super Stage” style in which two cars would run at the same time but on their own set course trying to beat their rival’s time to move on to the next battle. The “Super Rally Cross” format takes the old style but shakes it up by having 4 cars run at the same time…on the same course! Yet they’re still racing the clock more than each other.
However, they have to battle each other for the fastest line through a corner. If that wasn’t crazy enough, they’ve also introduced the “Joker Lane” The Joker Lane is a longer route around the track but it also includes the infamous “gap jump”. Now, a driver can use any lap of the race to take the Joker lane but each driver MUST use the lane at least once per race. This adds a whole new level of excitement as well as strategy for the drivers. Will they get the Joker lane out of the way early? Or will they save it for the last lap?

Swedish suspension gods Ohlins who are mostly known for their top notch race-only suspension set ups have finally decided to release a line for street cars! They call it the “Road And Track” line (hopefully there is no lawsuit pending) and as the name suggests these coilovers where designed for street and track double duty. Pictured above is their package for the Mitsubishi Evo Xand it looks just as beefy as they’re track-only applications. So far, I haven’t heard of the new Road And Track line being available here in the states but look for that to change soon.
We showed you a previewof this a while back and now the Cosworth Evo X Intercooler upgrade is officially available. According to Cosworth their upgrade kit will take less than 30 minutes to install with simple tools and increases flow by 55% over stock! Thats huge! That kind of improvement will cost you though as the MSRP is set at about $1,300. You know how it is though, got to pay for quality.
On the way out of XDC Irwindale over the weekend I spotted this flat white Mitsubishi Evo X in the Fujita booth. Upon closer inspection I realized that the entire color scheme was a wrap! Even the carbon fiber roof! It looks like the owner of this particular Evo got a jump on the new Wraptivo designer vinyl wrap product from Mequiars. It is crazy how legit it looks when its applied correctly! I have a feeling we’re going to see a lot more of the Wraptivo treatment in the future because this is just too fresh to not catch on.

Just got word from Evasive Motorsport’s blog that they just got some carbon fiber Craft Square mirrors for the Mitsubishi Evolution X. They are pricy but you pay for quality! They look so serious! I love them!
Engineers are awesome. Why you ask? Because they are always taking good things and making them better! Take Cosworth USA for instance, I just read on their blog that they are producing their own take on the Mitsubishi Evo X intercooler that will bolt right up in the stock position. They also revealed that a mandrel-bent intercooler piping kit will be available soon as well.
I didn’t neve know Greddy was working on this but I just got the update from their twitter page. Above is the new CZ4A aluminum hard pipe for the Mitsubishi Evo X with an 80mm suction pipe thrown in for good measure. Sooooo fresh!
