Well I felt a big difference. Both in terms of MBHP and otherwise.

Believe me, the Greddy headers transformed my vtec, so I can imagine TG's excitement.

TG might be a newbie but he knows his car. If he is happy so be it. If he like MHP, good for him.

From your experience, you should know - a few good planned researched mods are better than many unknown unco-ordinated mods. Lets not go beyond that.

Ajit, I am sure you off all people know there is nothing newbie and expert here. Atleast I still do consider myself as someone who is learning with each passing day and will continue to do so. Maybe our yardsticks to judge performance are poles apart.

Lets not get to the the topic of planned and unplanned research shall we? Don't want to open up a can of bitter worms.

Rahul, its just about expectations and also relative speed. People who have been in turbo cars would find NA cars boring. But people who have never gone the mod route or driven modded cars will be very happy with a header change and filter change.

Whatever rocks your boat man.....whatever puts that smile on you when u go for a drive....if you are happy thats all that matters....

Some engines respond very well to the mods.... if done right. Cedia imo is a 2.0L Torquey car & those 4-2-1 headers compliment that, which i think is designed for good low to mid range hence when coupled with good intake, results in a very good torque improvement at low to mid rpm & T.G could feel that noticeable change over stock.
one mod which works wonders on a particular engine, might not give similar results on a different car/engine when a similar mod is carried out.
so i don't think it will be fare to compare mods done on a cedia engine, to a different make car/engine with smaller displacement.

Brilliantly put, at the end of the day the guy who has done is happy and thats what matters.

Nice color of the headers, though i would still try to see if a better positioning is possible for the air filter

On a 4G94, changing to a less restrictive intake and exhaust can lead to upto an 8-9 whp improvement and similar gains in torque. That is quite significant and I guess thats what torqueguru experienced. Here's an article about it with dyno tests

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer - Power Pages - Import Tuner Magazine

Infact if you check evolutionm forums, you'd find even more substantial gains with simple intake/exhaust mods. These are just middle of the line. I think this should end all the fighting.

Yes Jaggu,
The Filter positioning is what i will be working on next, as so many of Tbhpians have already pointed out to me. Thanks.

A Silly n00b question:A CAI would be better for your car right? Coz it won't suck hot air from the engine bay. But then, why dosen't everyone put a CAI, instead most of the cars i've seen have just conical filters. Is there any technical reason for this?

Because cai's are more expensive than conical filters !
And you need to be very careful where you cai ends.It shouldnt suck in water.So Conical filters are usually a safer bet.

And damn those headers look niceeee!!

Yes, I would stop fighting if I had an Evo with simple intake/exhaust mods

@TG Now i guess most of your problems would be solved regarding the low-end torque you were hunting for in your earlier thread. Great install there, a pic when they are hot would be something to drool at!
Enjoy them and do think about the CAI as part of your next stage of mods.

I think this "Sudarshan Kriya" on a car makes as good a difference as it does on a human being! I would like to do the same on my petrol verna some time.
