Who says won't last long?? If half century middle aged uncle like me can do it, surely a young chap like him should not break a sweat!
Why do you think i am young lol !! I need to re-train my skills on controlling clutch first before going hardcore. Think should be soon enough for some hard clutch.

I believe you're still much younger than me, not yet even reach 40 right?


Not poison, but motivation! Lol
Yup i am in my 30's still. Ralliart converted Lancers are common, let's see if i can make something not common.

Just sent the car in yesterday, due to too many cars occupied the space in the garage, i didn't take any photos of my car when i left it there. Hopefully by the Saturday i am able to see some changes done to the car. According to the garage owner, it should take 2-3 weeks to complete the job.

Thanks

Hmm... I'm curious to try this one of these days. I tried the 1.8 manual and it was so underwhelming.

I tried the 1.8 manual, also quite disappointed, you have to rev it high to get it real going. The 1.8 CVT is even worse. Hopefully my converted Lancer will be more livelier considering i had some mods on IHE and ignition.

First mod i'd done on the manual gearbox, modified upper clutch pump with EVO 3 pump. It seems this one is the go to item for every MT Lancer. The next will be performance clutch bearing and performance clutch, after 1 year of intensive practice.

What advantages will the evo3 clutch pump have over stock?

Its more durable as its made out of steel instead of plastics (original inspira), and its also later will pair with performance clutch bearing and performance clutch kit for better pedal feel and bite.

Nice to know, thanks. Do you need to cut anything in the cabin to introduce the clutch pedal?

excited to see how your conversion will turn out

Yes obviously need to dig a hole for the clutch and brake pedal to sit in the original place. There were already mounting points for the clutch pedal so the conversion will be pretty straight up.
