This is admittedly embarrassing to admit but anything with the word “monoblock” in it will usually get my attention and will probably have a place here. In this instance its the new Brembo Gran Turismo monoblock 6-piston brake caliper for the Mitsubishi Evo X. These calipers aren’t new to the market but they’re new to Evo X owners! And Mitsu-heads will be happy to know that these calipers will work just fine with the stock rotors, which will save you some coin. Also it doesn’t matter if you have an Evo X in regular or MR flavor these pistons have you covered. Don’t like red? You can pick these up in Black, Silver (interesting!), or Yellow.

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.

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.

This is really one of those classic matches made in heaven: an A’PEXi intake on a Mitsubishi Evo. You just can’t go wrong with that combination. Now Evo X owners can enjoy the benefits of the dynamic duo. Ah, I can feel the Batman nerds mentally attacking me after that line.
HKS Japan has been working on a replacement for their famous carbon fiber Evo VIII time attack car in the form of an Evo X dubbed the CZ200S. If you don’t know by now, its a popular Time Attack past time to try and complete a lap of Japan’s Tsukuba circut in less than a minute and shave off time from there.
So far with only off the shelf HKS parts the CZ200S squeezed off a 59.495 so half the battle is won right there. Now their challenge is how much lower they can dive below their best time. This is definately going to turn out to be an interesting story for their team. I’ll try to keep you guys updated on their progress.
Here is a fresh tee by Pac Rim that plays off the classic “Mad Max” movie poster and the object of Mitsubishi Evo lover’s affection. Represent your Evo X and the road warrior all at once.
The engine gods over at Cosworth just dropped a new set of cams for the Mitsubishi Evo X. This set can work with the stock valve springs but still provide higher lift and longer duration. If you’re looking to do a little research some of the Evo-philes at SoCalEvo.net have done some of their own independant testing.
I’ve always been a fan of C-West, ever since I saw their S13 fastback body kits. Look at what they did with the Evo X. It’s so legit it comes with legal documents that officially state how cool they are. Evasive has this kit for a good price if you’re in the market.
