Coming to engine mods get the engine compression tested first, this will give you a clear idea of what the engine condition is, ie: does it need overhaul. Than start the upgrade slowly.
- Air filter
- Than decide if you want to go for Head change to DOHC/MiVEC. if yes than get one fitted, with stock ECU.
If you do not want to got through all this, you can use the original head and change rest of the stuff.
- exhaust, headers to match the new head/cams.
- Bigger injectors,high flow pump, Cam change, porting polishing.
If still the power is not enough get high compression pistons, get the engine blue printed, flywheel, clutch [stag2].
- if still power is need ,Than there is option of getting a 4G92 engine ,1.6 Mivec [there a couple of the forum ],170BHP@7000rpm and 149Nm@4500 rpm. Real fun to drive.[this will cost you a bit more]
Dinar, thanks a lot, the tips are very helpful, the car has been delivered to the 'chop shop' this week. But first there's some mechanical work to be done and guess it will take at least a week till the real exterior work begins.

i have to change the clutch plates and also the front discs. as i had mentioned in the beginning of this forum, the clutch is too week and the steering is a bit wobbly. will get the engine compression tested at the same time as well.

any recommendations on which make clutch plates should i go in for? or should i stick to the Mitsubishi originals from the showroom? also advice me on the discs.

i agree, plus i guess i'll end up spending 50k just on the paint job itself.

If you can source a exedy 'street clutch' for the lancer get that one, it'll be useful when the engine mods start, and you won't have to get new one immediately after the horse power increase.

Exedy 'street clutch' will be very hard to depress and most of the people i know have reverted back. Moreover i don't feel getting that would do wonders to the stage 1 mods he is upto. The stock clutch is good but Valeo clutch is the best for the regular usage and runs out very cheap. Clutch et' al, are usually done when stage 2 mods are done, I see he is more into the exterior styling. No offenses but i think he should be modding according to his need, rather than what best is available in the market.

@ Regnex
Since you are replacing the discs, get cross drilled rotors and better pads, with all these mods you would need better breaking. Get green stuff break kits, they are known to be very effective in lancers. Remember its more important to get better stopping power along with the increased horse power.

just my .2$

i did a bit of a research on both exedy and valeo on some threads

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ch-lancer.html (Clutch for Lancer)

seems like exedy will be a better choice, although the operations may be a bit hard, it will serve the purpose.

Guy's your advices are really helping me and am learning something new at every post. thanks

help me out on the colour selection for the car, i have come up to the last three Ferrari Red, White or Leaf Green. What would you suggest? i do not like Yellow, Purple or blue.

I love the color of that purple lancer in background of your body kit pics. White looks great but will not give you much of a sporty look, i am not sure of how a leaf green look on a sporty car, but ferrari red is surly gonna be a head turner. Red lancers have a league of their own like the black ones.

You know what, you made my day. The front bumpers looks skyline GT inspired. the over all fit and finish is great.

Regarding your car color, post some of the pics with the body kit on, we have a lot of photoshop experts(not forgetting that fact that being a web designer you are one of them ). I am just eager to see how the over all car will look like. Best of luck.

Guess what guys, I've got a wacky idea, I'm going to install a PlayStation 2 in my lancer.
Yes, you heard right, the PS2. as the idea is crazy, it's not so new. i have seen on the net many have installed, plus my dashboard in the lancer has 2 compartments where in one i can easily setup the PS2 console and an overhead screen making it look as if its a part of the package.

Definitely it will be strictly for the front passenger or rear seat users. The Driver (silly Me) can pull over and play whenever tired of the steering wheel and the gearshift knob .

as I'm not new to experimenting, i've done a screen installation and camera setup on my fiesta before, plus the under-body led installations too, believe me it's very difficult to have under-body LED's installed on a Fiesta.

here's where i'm stuck, which is the best place in the lancer to install the screen? and surely it should be a 7" to 11" TFT, overhead or dash mounted?

head-rest screens are already in my checklist.

here's a link i stumbles across advicing on how to install a PS2 in a car

Leaf green, if you want the car to be sober, whit if you want the car to look like an EVO and red if you want it to crab attention.
When putting the PS2 please check if the battery will handle the load and use a good filter circuit in the power supply.

I found a DIY website showing a detailed electronic circuit and components on how to convert a 12v DC to 8.5v DC also reducing the current for the PS2 directly from the car battery, the Playstation can be powered at the press of a button.
There is also a safety feature and low voltage alarm that can be installed in the lancer. This will help to a great deal rather than getting an in-car inverter for converting from 12v DC to 110/220v AC and back to 8.5v DC in case of the Playstation 2.

I placed an order for Projector lights for the lancer today, will cost me 13.5k, do you think its a reasonable deal? It's basically the whole enclosure.

You know what to do than it's good. Hope the circuit has a good pulse filter. I did not mean using a inverter, when you have a gaming unit, there will be playing of games[usually for quit long time], which should be handled, have a gaming console and have a dvd player is different.
13.5 for the full units is pretty OK.
Hope to see your car done with all the mods soon.

I am very excited myself. But at the same time I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that nothing major goes wrong with the plan in place. Expecting the car to be ready by November end.

any idea where i can get LED tail lights for the lancer? i saw a lancer in Goa which had circular LED tail lights, looked pretty good, like some on Chrysler cars. Surely they were custom made.


Also regarding spacers for the wheels, if i install them, will it effect the ride handling? Especially at curvy roads?

Found the PS2 12v to 8.5v car adapter on ebay, was lucky to find one, saved me the time on making one myself.
