Another great find from a post on evom made by Eric, of AMS. Here it is...

OK guys... the wait is over. Not only have we tested all the parts we have made so far but we have now made an astonishing 87WHP OVER STOCK!!!!!

This first chart is showing our EVO X stock compared to it with our Manual boost controller and MAF pipe / Intake pipe. You can clearly see that the gains are AWESOME!!! 45WHP from just a MAF pipe and a boost controller.

Boost was set to 22 psi and tapered to 16-17




Next on the list of parts tested was the AMS race series Catback exhaust. Again nothing was changed from above except the addition of the AMS catback. So the parts on the car up to this point are:

AMS MAF intake pipe
AMS boost controller
AMS Race series Catback Exhuast

Another 15 WHP Gain!!!!!


Here is a direct comparison between the Intake pipe and MBC and now with the addition of the catback



And now all three parts Vs Stock. This would be close to a stage 1 kit for a customer



Now we add another AMS product to the party. Its time to add a Test pipe to the mix. So now we are up to:

AMS MAF INTAKE PIPE
AMS Boost Controller
AMS Catback
AMS Test pipe

15 WHP GAIN!!!!! just from a test pipe!

Here are the previous parts compared with the addition of the test pipe:




And now everything up to this point compared to stock:



We are not done yet. How about we add on An AMS Front Mount intercooler. So now we have the following on the car

AMS MAF INTAKE PIPE
AMS Boost Controller
AMS Catback
AMS Test pipe
AMS Front Mount Intercooler

Another 10 WHP!!!!!


Not only did it pick up 10whp but the stock core would lose 5hp between pulls. The AMS FMIC keep the runs very consistent, fluctuating only a couple HP between pulls.

Here is a chart comparing all previous mods to the newly added FMIC:




And again all mods to this point Vs Stock.... amazing!



And last but not least is the AMS upper IC pipe. To be honest when we looked at the stock piece we all assumed this would be a strictly aesthetic piece and no real HP was to be made. Sometimes its good to be proven wrong.

The AMS Upper IC pipe for the EVO X not only picked up 5 more peak Whp peak but it made more power everywhere and as much as 10WHP in the MIDRANGE!!!!


So now to date we have:

AMS MAF INTAKE PIPE
AMS Boost Controller
AMS Catback
AMS Test Pipe
AMS FMIC
AMS Upper IC pipe

A pretty basic list of parts that is making 87 WHP OVER STOCK

So here we have all parts previous compared to the addition of the Upper IC pipe




And now the final Chart... the one we have been talking about here at the shop all day

Stock Vs the parts on the car now

87 WHP GAIN!

AND STILL STOCK (but safe) UNTUNED ECU!!!!





I Think its safe to say the EVO X is earning it colors nicely. Based on this I would have no problem picking one up myself.

Now, I'm sure that you guys have seen al the pics of these parts in the other ams thread, and now we have dyno graphs to go with 'em. I know, I know, your welcome.

Yeah, this is all from just breathing bolt ons, no ecu tuning yet. Just wait till it gets tuned. Another 15-20 hp, but the midrange will pick up a ton, though. Just wait.

so with all of this gain(87whp) what's the street performance 0 to 60, 1/4 mile, track time comapare to stock? also with 87 whp how much will be the crank hp now. i don't know how to convert whp to crank, maybe this car is @ 400bhp already?

Yeah, 87whp is more than 100bhp. So it's safe to say that the car is already over 400hp.

The only thing I question on the dynos is the fact that the stock dyno stops at a lower speed than the rest. I wonder why.

so it's more tunable than the evo 8 fq400, where they change from turbo to ecu etc... and cost so much. hmmm, let's all go to GSR drop the MR. so maybe mitshu really de tuned this car.

a dejon tool mbc will run $50
depending on the exhaust it could be $600-1200
intake pipe ill assume is in the $150-200 range (seeing how i assume a intake pipe uses the stock airbox)
lower ic pipe ill guess will run $200-300
fmic is gonna be the costly piece probably $700+

well, the intake does not use the stock airbox. It incorporates the cone filter and maf housing, the relocation of the stock bov and soft piping, as well as the full suction piping leading to the turbo. My guess is around 300.00. And uh, you must be new to the tuning scene, because high quality front mounts usually run in the 1000.00 and up range, not 700. Of course I guess it depends on whether you buy the core by itself or the uicp and licp with it. BTW, the piece in the pic is the upper intercooler pipe, not the lower. AMS does have plans to offer a lower ic pipe soon though. See pic below...

I know it's cool to see the potential of this car, but how many people here are planning on actually putting mods on the car and voiding the warranty? If anything, this just makes me depressed knowing that Mitsubishi could have done a lot more pretty easily. Instead, we have to wait 3 years for the warranty to expire before we start adding stuff.

Or are you guys planning on removing the parts if you take it in for service? How hard is it to remove a MAF pipe and boost controller?

I think like any bolt on parts don't void the warranty though
