    More Updates! I finally got my Intercooler kit in the mail. It's the Greddy Spec-LS kit made custom for the Evo 4-6. Comes with the cooler, fasteners, couplers and lower piping.



    Ironchief and I put it in the past weekend. It was all good except we had to fabricate some mounts as the ones it came with didn't work out.

    How'd you go about fabricating new mounts? Did you have to actually weld them on or just put some sort of extension onto the already-there mounts?
    Heard welding with aluminum is a little tougher, and I assume the intercooler frame is pretty thin as it is...
    Love the look of that wider interlooer, only shame is you cant see that shiny new piping; the things we sacrifice for performance I suppose haha.

    I just had to make extensions for the pre-existing mounts out of sheet aluminum. It was as simple as making a few measurements and drilling a few holes in a small piece of sheet aluminum to extend the lower mounts.

    Yea, sacrifices all over the place haha. The car is going to be a beast once I tune it with all of the supporting mods I have on it. I'm going to be dropping in a GrimmSpeed 3 port right before the tune.

    Who are you planning on getting it tuned by, and with what method Augustine? Are you thinking a standalone ecu, or a remap with ceddy mods?

    I'm thinking of an e-tune right now. Maybe Mellon Racing or TSComp. I'd pefer to put it on an awd dyno and be there for the tune but I don't know of anyone who tunes JDM Evo's in the Prairies, or Canada for that matter.

    Damn!
    Here's a tip - get a sheet of plastic to put under the hood (when the engine is suitably cold, of course). Will prevent that from happening, and also good with rain.

    Before you get your tune, especially with the 3port solenoid, its a great idea to get an uprated fuel pump, like a walbro 255. More power=more fuel and the stock pumps aren't able to keep up all the time apparently. Thats the first thing I will be buying for when i tune apart from a wideband.
