Airtrek turbo can use ron95 from factory as it was tuned to run on ron95. stock map are running on much rich side to protect fuel starvation or overboost. so a lot of my airtrek friends do reflash tune to run more efficient FC and more power (on demand). there are few names of reflash tuner for airtrek/evo. where do u live?
Finally got airtrek sifu come in......:driver:

Yes the otai here are all correct on their comments. Unless your Airtrek is recond from Japan, most we see on the road are imported locally by USF (I think) and they're mapped to run Ron95.

When mine was stock with no mods at all, I upped the boost from 0.6 bar to 1 bar and it ran for almost 3 years, not a hiccup.

4G63T in stock is a detuned version from Evo. You may think the 40hp lesser is not much but other than the block, almost everything else are different. Cams, injectors, intake manifold, turbo etc etc. In stock, you get about 180-190whp if your engine is healthy. 0-100 is around 8.5 secs just to be conservative. The spec-sheet claim of 6.5 secs is not possible. The INVECS II slow-box robbed huge hp from the engine. Additionally to make things worse, the car weighs over 1600kgs!

For ECU-remap and tuning, you can look for Ah Wah if you're living in Klang Valley (contact on pinned thread). He specializes in Evos and Airtreks. Congrats and enjoy your ride!

Ha? Odd.. my spare parts shop has the Diaqueen stock. Maybe old stock. If you can find SPIII then that'll work for you. Diaqueen is just the brand. Get the fully syn SPIII la.

Buy from Bintang Auto Parts, they have plenty of stock. I bought many parts for my Evo from them, guaranteed genuine.

I also sourced my Lancer parts here, prices are reasonable and imported from Japan !

The best thing is they got ready stock most of the time even for rather expensive parts.
Yeah i am not worried that i can't find any parts for the Lancer, but not sure of if i am going for an older Evo 5, especially on the drivetrain parts.

You're eyeing on a 5 already? Last time got 1 yellow color on sale, asking rm60k.

I liked the 5 as its still one of the rawest EVO, 6 got too much hype and prices are as close as an EVO VII. I will continue to look for a CP9A Evo V, preferably a black one and 98 version. Liked the wide fenders of V and its unique robotic eye.

5 also price high now leh, almost the same as 6. The one with crazy skyrocket price now is the TME! That should be the most raw feeling Evo also. 5 and 6 should be the same. In terms of look, 5 and 6 only different in front bumper and rear wing ma, fenders and everything else the same so not much difference.
