Lets post a few updates

next thing for deal with was suspension and handling


Suspension was original, but all springs are worn out and old, rear shocks were leaking, and also the car was too soft to handle that kind of power so i upgrade it to much better level

Ive bought Cusco street ZERO coilovers for Lancer EVO III

car handles much much better in corners, over the holes its almost like stock suspension, over the speed bumps you have to be little gentle , overall very good coilover

Image

Also got the powerflex camber bolts as the car sits little lower now

Image

Got new oem bumper indicator lens

Image

Then the next problem was grip, i had only 2 and a half years old tyres but they didnt have grip at all

So i bought new tyres Continental Contisportcontact 5 215/45/17, also as I will upgrade the brakes i need new wheels that are the same dimensions (17" , 7J , ET40) but with flatter spokes
that means more space for bigger brake calipers, luckily i found Superleggeras which are 4kg lighter than previous wheels EACH! and also they have 1,5cm more space for brake calipers

Image

Cleaned up the wheels, waxed them, got new central rings 67,1mm and new lug nuts

Image

And ready to fit on a car

Image

Results are awesome, lighter steering wheel (as each wheel is lighter for 4kg), and much more grip, which allows me to run full boost in second gear afer 5000rpm

Image


Also getting the parts for next work

new tie rods, new tie rod ends, new boots, new front bearings, new CV joints

Image

it feels factory over the holes, but on a bumpy road not so much

after all this isnt daily car and for that power it needs to have proper suspension :)

parts not labor.
your engine looks brand new
your coilover looks expensive
just a guess on all parts

Next update, got the brakes, 4pot brembos with braided steel lines and 320mm discs

Image

redrilled discs to 4x114,3 and test fit, it fills up the 17" nicely

Image

got new front bearing in, and also polyurethane on arms

Image

Image

Custom made heavier springs for trunk opening, as the factory didnt design it for trunk spoiler, now the trunk hood sits up alone :)

Image

Another gearbox from 2.4 Galant is in with lower miles on it

also installed new OEM shaft seals

Image

new clutch disk material

Image

also new braided steel line for the slave clutch cylinder, you can see how worn out is the old one

Image

and new slave clutch cylinder

I run a Goodridge braided clutch line in my evo , it felt alot more direct and no more splitting , you should do your brake lines too , massive difference

Did the Brembo's clear the wheel or do you need spacers?

I have sanded them for 2mm, as they have one lip that has no use and now it fits perfectly without spacers

Nope, evo ones are much larger, but still almost the same "height" from the disc to the wheel
This ones are from seat ibiza cupra tdi, which also means cheap pads :), currently there are new ferodo ds2500

All calipers that have pistons on the other side are tall and you need a lot of space between the disc and the wheel


You can see that before i had OEM Mitsubbishi wheels (both were 7j and et40), but with superleggera i have 15mm more space for calipers as the design of the spokes is different

Thats why i have been searching for exactly this wheel which is also very light (6.9kg 17")
As iam limited with wide and offset due to rear arches
