Hey all im in Australia but lived in Atlanta for 9 years and moved back here.

I am looking at purchasing an Evo x MR in approx 6 weeks well work is for me i should say :).

Any how this allows me some money for mods, I want in mid to low 12's and was wondering what you guys think would be best thing to do?

So far I'm thinking the following:
TBE
EBC
Full intercooler kit with hard pipes
BOV
Cold Air Intake (not just a pod sitting in engine bay picking up heat soak)
Ecutek
set of lowering springs (not so sure about coilovers as its a daily)

Is there anything else or anything you would change?

BTW what do you think about Octane Blue, CF rear diffuser, CF front lip, CF front Guards, CF Bonnet, with some kick ass graphixs, XXR 521's which will be re worked by a guy here to 18x10.5 instead of just and stretch some tyres on it and have the guards all rolled and reworked to stop any rubbing by my panel beater.

Would this combo look alright? Im thinking yes obv but you dont see many sorry edit that ANY EVO X's modded here hardly any evos at all in australia (when i say hardly any i mean might see one a fortnight if that).

well E85 is like non existant in Australia we have 98 octane premium though which i think Us only 92 or 93 is this true? woudl i NEED 1000cc injectors how is the idle with thoes injectors in it and i would rather run mid to hi 12s in a daily and have reasonable fuel consumption than go to 1000cc injectors just to get another .4 of a sec so is it worth it ?

did you just say fortnight? is this 1492?
LMAO we say fortnight heaps over here lol

the 1000cc injectors probably wouldnt affect your millage really at all. if you drive conservatively you'll be fine. i read an article in import tuner about a 400whp Daily. it had a new turbo, exhaust, tune, air intake, and 1000cc injectors

With the Cobb AP i dont know if anyone can tune here and the tunes they use would be set up for the US conditions true? be like buying a ecu for a japanese car and using it in Cali it wont work properly lol. Thats why i was thinkin ecutek is ecutek no good on the evo?
why endlinks ?
And instead of panel filter i was thinking AMS stage 2 intake?

i have a gsr and havent tracked it, but before the ams downpipe and testpipe i made 343 whp and 350ft/lb of torque. now im hoping to have closer to 365whp.. eitherway its more then 100whp more then stock and the car pulls super hard. probably take it to the track to get some numbers once it cools down in a few months. im in texas and its over 100 degrees everyday. to hot for me. car should be well capable ove 12 second runs. as for ordering parts.. i got most of my stuff from guys off of here. being in australia though shipping would suck. not to mention your proximity to asia and more inportantly japan.. and taiwan. you should be able to find a shop on that side of the world that can get you good deals. googke is your friend.

Thanks mate, but due to low volume it can actually work out cheaper buying form US as i found with my Supra lol plus frieght is FREE YAY due to my work.

Maybe when im ready i will source form forums and i have seen evoxtuning.com are they reasonably priced you think do you know if they offer discounts for large purchases as i sent an email and got no reply :(.

Thanks for your help and time btw mate.

my fastest in my stock GSR on the 1/4 was 14.2. A MR will easily be high 13s if not mid 13s stock cause of the paddles.

a stock GSR should run in the mid 13's. but in denver altitude will probably play a part. being at sea level in australia the air will be nice and thick.

MRT are most known but are shit IMO there exhaust are to loud and their kits instead of working on problem areas just focus on making the good better.

They are bad customer service and im in vic their in nsw kinda like distance of georgia to north carolina.

I think i have my list now and will be running very similar to yours and an ETS TBE but can i run a dump pipe instead of recirculating it with a ecutek or will it go into limp because of no o2 sensor?

The stock fuel pump is good to 450+awhp easily.

Not bad. I would suggest the AP, but the fuel is something that you may wanna look into. Cobb may actually have maps for 98 octane. If so, it's by far your best option.

my fastest in my stock GSR on the 1/4 was 14.2. A MR will easily be high 13s if not mid 13s stock cause of the paddles.
I ran 13.4s with my mods in 17-18 psi. I have the MR. I'm easily in the 12s with 20+psi.

My new more refined list:
ETS parts:
ICP kit
TBE twin tip
Tanabe front udnerbrace
Cusco Sway Bars
Kelford Cams
Innovate Standalone Gauge LC1 Wideband
Forge Recirculation BOV
Eibach Pro Lowering Springs
Apexi EVC-R
AEM Intake
Ecutek Tuned
Bosch fuel pump

Is a upgraded FMIC needed in melb we are normally around 15-25 celcius so like between 50-max 80 farenheit 95% of the time

Would you say the Cobb AP stage 2? if they make a 98 octane? what about humidity and sea levels would this make a diff? Can u use a dump that goes to atmosphere without an o2 sensor with a Cobb AP do you need a Wideband if u dont have a o2 sensor sorry might be noob question just not sure wat it does exactly the Wideband that is jsut see most of u use them and reccomend them.
