Street Hits – 700HP Stock Block EVO 8

May 25th, 2018

In these days of awesome aftermarket high-performance components, it’s not that rare to encounter a 700hp street car. In most cases, big ponies equate to a built, balanced, and blueprinted V8 engine with some type of power-adder. That is precisely what makes our feature car so unique. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is no stranger to import performance car enthusiasts. There are some extremely powerful EVO entries on the horizon and many continue to run the 4G (inline 4-cylinder) engine platform (built and sleeved to handle the extra power). What sets our feature car apart is that it is capable of Read More

190 MPH Sequential EVO IX

January 30th, 2018

Wow! Talk about dialing up the boost – the sequentially shifted DSM is back and it’s better than ever. With a brand new Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) 6-inch front-mounted intercooler, the boost is turned all the way up to 55 psi. A new AEM Infinity controller, tuned by Lance (Toyomoto), makes sure that plenty of E85 fuel makes it to the cylinders. Any way you slice it – more air and more fuel equals increased performance. This sporty sedan is prepared by Machines Gone Wild (Miami, Florida). It features a Ronnie Crawford built 2.2-liter engine with Carillo connecting rods and Read More

Street Pulls – 800WHP EVO

November 3rd, 2017

What could be sweeter than an 800whp DSM? How about a warm night of roll racing on the highways of Mexico? The feature car is a 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution (8) that has been radically modified to enhance performance. It is powered by an EVO 9 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has been built by AG Autosport (with steel connecting rods). The bottom end is rated at 1,000hp. It also uses a Precision 62-millimeter turbocharger. A pair of Walbro 450 pumps keep the E85 fuel flowing. A Haltech ECU (tuned by CriSpeed) keeps all the ponies running in the same direction. The Read More

Evo X World Record Quarter-Mile

April 22nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and speed aficionados of every variety. Join me in congratulating Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) and English Racing as they (once again) shatter the world record 1/4-mile with a pass of 8.48-seconds @ 164.1 mph. The crew had the little sedan running in the 8.5-second range the entire event (TX2K17) and finally hit the right spot for a blow out pass in the latter stages. It seemed like Lucas English was pulling his hair out at the laptop trying to find the perfect tune. Lucas is no stranger to world records and he came through in the clutch. Read More

World’s Fastest Quarter-Mile Mitsubishi

February 2nd, 2017

Hello drag racing fans and aficionados! Say hello to the new king of Diamond Star Motors (DSM) 1/4-mile drag racers. With a best ET of 7.38-seconds @ 187.94 mph, Jeff Bush and crew pushed their slick looking 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse (FMY401K) to the front of the pack in the dog-eat-dog world of DSM drag racing. The new world record pass took place during the Haltech World Cup Finals Import vs. Domestic event, at Maryland International Raceway. The car, sponsored by English Racing and Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) among others, was competing in the Street Fighter Class. Unfortunately, the team failed Read More

Meet Maria – The Perfect Car Girl

September 29th, 2016

Are you feeling a little misunderstood? Chances are that you just need to meet Maria (or find a mate like her). If you are a car guy (or girl) – and if you’re reading this you probably are – your most meaningful relationships are likely going to be with other car people. Since it’s a pretty safe bet that car guys are easier to find than car girls, Maria is a rare commodity indeed. Check out the video; you’ll be amazed at Maria’s knowledge of cars and racing (and the car is quite impressive as well). Speaking of which: The Read More

Tin Can Mitsubishi Evo – Stock ECM World Record

September 3rd, 2016

Who knew that there was an event focused exclusively on Diamond Star Motors (DSM) held annually at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio? Seems like someone should have, since the DSM Shootout has been going on for the last 24-years. This event grows bigger and bigger with each passing year. This is due in large part to the popularity of the Mitsubishi Evolution. Despite the Evo coming from the factory with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, this car is easily modified. Many top-shelf aftermarket manufacturers are producing high performance parts for these cars that are practical, comfortable, and have the potential Read More

Indy Nights – Street Racing Superheroes

August 29th, 2016

First of all, this is some serious street racing action. Second off, allow me to ask this question: If you come out of pocket for a Lamborghini, then get your lunch eaten by a Honda Civic, do you immediately head home and cry into your pillow? I ain’t trying to be disrespectful – just asking. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, you might want to go underground (Underground Racing, that is). So, here’s the extremely diverse lineup. There’s are a pair of Honda Civics with huge turbochargers and they are taking no prisoners. Then there is a 1JZ Read More

1291HP Street Sleeper Sedan – Dyno and Test Drive

June 29th, 2016

While this sedan doesn’t exactly look like your typical grocery-getter, you don’t see many 1,200+hp rides with four-doors and a baby seat in the back. Billed (by AG Motosports) as the Mitsubishi Evolution with the most horsepower on this planet, this thing hit 1,291whp and 767-lb.-ft. of torque on the dyno and then hit the streets for some test-abuse. This ‘Mr. Biscuit’ is well heeled with a built 2.0-liter – and I mean built – with GRP aluminum connecting rods and an AG Competition cylinder head with Ferrea valves, Supertech valve springs, and a set of AG racing spec camshafts. Read More

Dig Race – Evo 9 vs. Viper

June 8th, 2016

What’s better than a parking lot dig race? A parking lot dig race with beautiful women. What’s better than that? – when one of the beauties is driving a really fast car. Stunning Sky Espinoza owns two impressive Mitsubishi Evos and she does most of her own high-performance work and maintenance. She’s a real knockout – behind the wheel and in front of the camera. This clip shows her racing her ‘MisterJ’ Evo against a mighty Dodge Viper. The Mitsubishi rolls off the factory floor with a 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled 4-banger. It makes 286hp in factory trim; safe to Read More
