I checked out various websites and all have different timings. So lets keep it out of consideration.
Ok, as you wish. LOL

I wouldnt take Acura NSX into consideration as it costs more than $100,000+
and os a semi-supercar.
Nobody is forcing you to consider it bro, thats just my personal consideration. BTW, NSX R is not an Acura.

And GT-R is as good as an evo with Impreza just a hairline behind.
If you say so.

EVO is a purpose built car. It is a softened-up WRC car.
Well, i would say the same about the Imprezza as well. If you've watched the "Best Motoring" slalom tests, you'l know how soft the suspension on these cars are.

In N.America there is no such thing as Honda NSX, we just have Acura NSX. I know the NSX-R version maybe a honda but then living with Acuras one gets used to interchange.

[quote=islero]I am sorry if I did not explain properly. What I had in mind was extreme tuning, when, without changing the displacement, they increase power up to crazy levels like 500+ bhp.[quote]

No one is talking about extreme tuning. In your words - a jump from 366 to 500 itself is huge, and beleive me you will feel it. It's not like you add a K&N get 3 to 5 HP more, which by itself leaves you grinning from ear to ear. Years of R&D, dyno time etc. etc. goes into enhancing power of these machines. There are specialists for such things.

This is going no where. I appologise for my reaction, but it is a little irritating when people make statements without getting their facts together.

Package is fantastic, and if I had the resources, one of these would defineately be sitting in my garage.

It is coming out 2007 according to the Plans by Mitsubishi.

There is still one new car release slated before the lancer X comes out.

lancer X will have 3 versions

1. MIEV EVO (Electric)
2. Normal EVO
3. Basic Lancer.

Now that is an announcement and much may change in the due course.

Mitsubishi has struck gold with the New Outlander and Eclipse. Lets hope the new lancer does the same.
