Looking to make more power but where to start?
 
I bought my Evo X in September of 2018 and looking to make more power into it. I learned a couple things but I’m still new to it. I will have roughly $4,000 to $4,500 budget to get it as far as I can. I was looking to see what y’all recommend? I’ve already added a cold air intake and previous owner put on a bov. I’d appreciate all the help I can get bros

You could probably go as far as full bolt ons, an ATP turbo kit, and tuning with that budget man

Appreciate it, I’ll do some research on it

I would recommend you look into just getting a full exhaust and a electronic boost controller. On 91 that should net you around 340ish whp, little more on 93. If budget still allows do injectors, fuel pump and go e85 for 400ish whp.

For each mod that changes the airflow you need to get tuned or risk HUGE problems!
Always better off doing everything at once.

You have a few options.
Buy all the Bolton’s, install them and drive like a grandma without boosting to a reputable tuner. Or do a remote tune? Or
Drop off your car and let the tuner do everything.

Do you have a tune? Find a good tuner first and get a tune. Get a wideband and boost gauge. Find out what type of software the tuner supports. Cobb AP is decent for minor bolt-ons. If you ever plan on going past bolt-ons later you are better off with Open Source. It all depends on your goals not that those goals won't change over time but, try to set a realistic goal within your budget. Save up extra funds cause things can come up. Good luck with your build.

4500, if spent carefully, could yield a FBO+MHI 18k+E85 & tune.

There are some things you can leave out if you so choose. An intake at that power level isn't a necessity. A drop in filter like the cosworth would be more than fine for what you want.

You can never go wrong with a full turbo back bolt ons, wideband, boost gauge, and a tune.

Search the used market unless you really want new for everything.



Intake, Downpipe, Exhaust Manifold, 3 port boost solenoid, Injectors, Pump, Flex Fuel Kit, AFR/Boost gauge and tune.
