Just like with exhaust, it is important to free up intake restrictions to
allow as much air into the engine as possible for making peak power levels. The
factory front mount intercooler works well, but like anything "stock",
it becomes a restriction as modification levels increase and will keep your
Evolution from producing maximum power.
This upgraded cores measures 20" x 12.4" x 3.625" and the
overall length, including end tanks, is 28". The core is bar and plate
design and flows a massive 1250+ CFM with a miniscule 1psi of pressure
With more than 80% increased internal volume than the stock FMIC,
intake flow capabilities and potential power levels are dramatically increased.
In fact, a 20 horsepower or more gain or can be realized simply by bolting it on
in place of your stock FMIC.
This FMIC is as large as you can fit in your Evo without major surgery. The
bumper can be retained if you wish, but you will need to remove, or at least
cut, the splash guard to allow for the added height of the core to come through.
Fits: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII, VIII , IX
