    Welcome!

    Why replace the EVO? Was more practicality required?

    The mods you have there should be good for well over 200kW, maybe as high as 220 if you were to run 18PSI. You'll probably want an intercooler soon in your upgrade path and will definitely want an upgraded HPFP since you're using the AP.

    And most importantly of all: WHAT COLOUR!?

    Welcome Justin, I'm still fairly newbie here however I'm sure the majority would agree the next mod should be a rear engine mount. In these cars they make a huge difference, well so I've heard. Ordering mine soon

    HPFP is a must its a platform for every other mod to come . You already have the AP world of opportunities open up turbo, engine work etc

    Hi Reedy,

    Thanks to all for the welcome,

    Had to sell the Evo x as part of the divorce settlement oh well (was nice while it lasted)

    The fuel pump is definitely the next mod I will be putting in along Side the rear engine mount.

    I have been running the car on safe mode till I can order that pump internals/pump replacement, I have been trying to read the forums for a recommended vendor...? So hopefully I can order this week.

    Car is silver, hopefully I'll get some pics up sometime shortly.


    - Yeldarb
    I had the stage 1 maps for about 1 week, was a massive upgrade in power over the stock.

    Im having the typical fuel pump issues now running the stage 2, engine cutting off the power under fuel pressure issue. I have taken several data logs confirming this.

    I do have a concern that my car is boosting usually high, 21.5 psi. I haven't had a chance to really look into this, I'm a little concerned about what problems that could arise. BOV will need to be replaced down the track also I'm told.
    Anyone else encountered this? Any related articles/advice I'd be much appreciated.

    besides that I'm very happy so far

    IM running 19psi on a stock bpv, with no issues

    21psi does seem a little high - but is that on spike, or is it holding at that pressure under WOT?

    Mine has shown 19.5psi on datalog but that's only a spike

    Hey Smokey,

    From reviewing the data it only seems to spike every now and then, but i can have consistent values of 20psi under WOT.
