I'd love to see PERRIN's work on a Ralliart. So this excites me especially when it comes to hearing the SST can take and estimate 50 more hp over the EVO X's base numbers.
Yeah we fully intend to carry the parts over to the non-EVO cars now that Mitsu offers them. (Like we do on the Subi front. Not just the STi but the others as well.)

Thanks!

Hey guys, first post here. I'll also be looking at the ralliart when it comes out. I drive an 04 nissan sentra spec-v now and only have about 2 years left on the loan. I have wanted awd and turbo for about 10 years now and am excited about this car. Although I'll have to compare it to the wrx, camaro, mustang, genisis coupe, and solstice coupe. I know a bunch of rwd's in there. I'll have to decide if I can put up with rwd in the winter for a couple months in NW Ohio and also gas prices, insurance, ect.

Well i dont know how the RalliArt will do, but my Evo eats just as much gas as my Camaro SS.

Ralli-art has hit NZ as of 2 weeks ago. not to sure about the pricing chosen however. It is being sold for NZ$46,000. ( I bought my GSR for $62999 not incl options).. ( this is the sedan, the hatch is about 3 months away)

Used evo X's are already down to 46 and 47K .. so you could get a brand new ralliart for 46K or a used X with 6000 kms on the clock for 47K.. ( NZ$)... I know what I would pick.

I was told November by my dealer yesterday. I really don't think they know.

I can't wait because I'm swapping tails with one when they get here. :D

“This is not a detuned Evo engine. It’s a stepped-up Lancer engine,” says Mitsubishi Product Planning Manager Brian Arnett. Mitsubishi set this engine up with their own popular TD04 single-scroll turbocharger, also used by Subaru in the WRX. The Evolution, by contrast, uses the twin-scroll Mitsubishi TD05 turbo. The Ralliart also receives a smaller intercooler than the Evo, and different engine programming.
What this says to me is that Mitsubishi has left a lot of power conveniently in reach of the aftermarket tuner, if you want it. But after driving the Ralliart, I have to say it would be a shame to unbalance the car by upgrading the power without also upgrading the suspension, brakes, and so on. And at that point, why not just buy an Evo and get all that stuff right up front with a warranty?
Wow this article is going to piss off some people at Evom. They have been arguing for three months how the Ralliart is a Detuned EVO and they are going to turn them into Evo's with just a tune. :rolleyes:
