Mitsubishi Lancer GLXi (2000) ... ... getting there ...

elf’s Team-BHP Garage
Mitsubishi Lancer GLXi (2000) ... ... getting there ...
Engine Specifications:
  • Type: 4 cyl. Inline SOHC 12Valve MPFI
  • Displacement(cc): 1468
  • Max. Power (Bhp / rpm) : 85 / 5500
  • Max. Torque (lb/ft / rpm : 88 / 3300
  • MIVEC? How sweet of you to ask - OF COURSE I'd like one, thankyouverymuch.
Turbocharger & Induction:
  • K&N Universal Air flow.
Fuel & Tuning:
  • Fuel: Power. Speed97 not used anymore.
  • Tuning: No tuning required - methinks self adjusting everything. Use a tuning fork sometimes, to make engine sing at correct pitch.
  • Sometimes scrub ECM with steel brush, Rin soap & water.
  • Auto seek on radio with presets, so not much tuning required. Hate Indian radio anyways...
  • MSD Plug Wires
  • OWS Uber Power Iridium Spark Plugs
  • Tri-Phase Performance Module
  • 4x2x1 tuned length Headers with custom tuned low restriction exhaust from ViperPerformance.
  • No big bore end pipe, just an understated 1.75" chrome tip with a chamfer - it's really lovely: near silent between idle to about 3k, yet she screams like a banshee at full throttle.
    Been blipping her ever since the install... :D
  • No hole in lasht dholki for more "ressing sound".
  • Shortened gearshift.
  • Valeo Performance Clutch
  • Self-made 9 speed forward / 3 reverse Tiptronic sourced from 2 Cayennes.
    Are you really reading this...?
    Silly eedyut boy. Look at picchar quitely.
Weight reduction & transfer:
  • I don't weigh much, so I'm OK.
  • Factory-Installed auto door locks, therefore instant 120 kg variable weight reduction when you throw out fat front seat passenger when sudden street race happens (although maybe stopping car first might be good idea sometimes, especially if aforementioned fat front seat passenger is connected).
Suspension, wheels & tires:
  • 5 spoke 15" 6.5J League LG203 Aluminium Alloys.
  • Goodyear Eagle Ventura 205/55 R15.
  • Stock suspension...
  • Nitrogen filled tyres. Superb.
  • So called "Art" Leather - light grey.
    In normal non-accessory-wallah terms, light ash-grey rexine.
  • Italian Leather / Wood / Aluminium steering wheel
  • Metallic British Racing Green, at least in my opinion.
    My damn RC book says some indiscernable green... still trying to figure it out...
  • Silver alloys with a chrome lip.
  • Black tyres.
  • Bits & pieces resprayed to look like I want them to look.
ICE (In-Car Entertainment):
  • Alpine Tape / FM / CD Receiver.
  • 6 CD (audio only) Changer in trunk.
  • Rear: Infinity reference 9613i ovals.
  • Front: Infinity reference 6010CS components.
  • No sub (don't want one yet).
    K&N Engine Singer.
  • Women.
  • My myoojik.
Wifey's Contributions:
  • The Italian steering wheel
  • The K&N
  • The choice of alloys.
  • The choice to stay with the color (I love it now) & not to respray it red like the old one.
  • The choice of driver.
    [Methinks she's got great taste :D ]
  • The faces / tantrums every time she rides with me coz she wants the exhaust in her car too...

Have started fooling around wid mods, shall never finish (wifey should not see this bit)!
