Mitsubishi Lancer sport sedan.

Postby Malibo » Thu Sep 13, 2018 11:31 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm new here to the forum, and trying to get some great ideas on how to make my lancer look nicer.
I own a Mitsubishi Lancer sport sedan for about 4 months now.
It has an 4B10, 1.8liter NA engine in it which produces 143hp.

Done:
-Changed the front grill from chrome to black with a red emblem.

Plans so far:
-Put in some red hella horns (already in the garage).
-Put in some smoked side blinkers (already in the garage).
-Put in a oil temp, oil press and water temp gauge (already in the garage)
-Get the car lowered a little bit, not sure weather to go with coils of springs.
-Get some window visors.
-Black out the chrome on the doors.
-License plate side mount.
-Get an evo X wing.

Rather then go for looks I would be doing everything I can to get as much power out of it and make the motor breathe.
No need to go nuts and spend a fortune
You can do some nice work under the bonnet for bigger all with very impressive results
Shove a K&N air cleaner at it and a RA snorkel
You can also fit a air shovel under the front grille to force the air up to the front of the RA snorkel
and whack a cover over the front of the RA snorkel that helps to force the air inside the RA snorkel
All,the info for that is listed here in the forum
Also go nuts with gold heat wrap tape and sheets and do,the snorkel and air intake all the way down to the throttle body
Feel free to wrap the inlet manifold also
Throw some extractors at it and wrap those in exhaust wrap
And also wrap up the radiator hoses in thermal exhaust wrap to greatly reduce the hot air trapped under the bonnet
Wrap the fuel line that is exposed on top of the motor in wrap also.
Time consuming to do
Inexpensive to do
Very much improves performance
If you feel adventurous remove the inlet manifold and fit a thermal insulated gasket to reduce heat to the inlet manifold also

That will,keep, you busy for a while

Looks mint dude, Welcome to the forum!

That is a tidy Lancer, always wondered if you guys got robbed in the power plant department with all the diesels and low CC engines, but I know that has something to do with EU standards :wink:

That looks like a VR or at best a VR-X please tell us more about it, is it Manual/CVT? Leather interior? how bad did we Aussies get ripped off in the selection of trim in these cars? :lol:

You probably don't need to worry about the guages, unless for aesthetics, as the 4B engines are pretty bullet proof, and as long as the services are done every 15 thousand there should be no issue. There is a sports grille that has a finer mesh in it, a smaller mitsi emblem, and is colour matched to your car, MZ575831EX
There are mounts on Ebay and Ali express for shifting your numberplate to the side, not sure if in NL you can get a smaller plate to suit though, in AU and NZ ours are 6 characters and at most 14" long. Yours looks like it's 18-20"

Isn't your steering wheel on the wrong side? XD

I kid I kid =)

Again Welcome to the club :D

Welcome, to the forum.
How is the 1.8 for power?

I have a 4B12 the 'big block' 2.4Lt LOL

I didn't either until a few weeks ago when I looked up 4B1 on wiki.

@Bumblebee:
I know i have to spend a fortune to get great numbers of power gain out of this engine, and that is not what i'm looking for.
Sure a little bit more power is always welcome, but to get a lot more i have to build on a turbo.
There is some one here in the Netherlands that has already done it.

Thanks for the tips to go crazy with the thermal wrap, it is an easy upgrade to do.
Just like u say, time consuming.

Hahahaha, yeah it has every thing to do with the EU regulations. For your knowledgee in Germany and the Netherlands we are slowly saying goodbye to our old Diesels. We see allot more electric cars here like the Tesla's and hybrids like Toyota's and Volvo's.
But it is also possible to get a 2.0 Ralliart and 2.0 Evolution here in the Netherlands.
And sadly but true also a 1.5liter(109hp) and a 1.6liter(116hp).

Mine has a manual gearbox, and doesn't have the leather interior, but for my opinion i don't really like the leather.
I will post a picture of the interior soon.

The gauges i don't really need, but it is that i have them in the attic from my previous car.
And it is not that hard to install some gauges, so that is why.
The side mount numberplate holder i have to adjust to fit our numberplates to it, because they are as you already spotted a little bit wider.

My steering wheel is on the left side, so in your point of view the wrong side! XD

The power is enough, not great, but enough.
Better to swap in a 4B12. :P

Mate no need to spend a fortune to get tons to power out of these motors
You can go nuts if you wish
Just do the basics and you will be pleasantly rewarded
Sadly too many people have been brainwashed over the years and think that huge HP numbers are the be all end,of the universe
Nothing could be further from the truth

Hahah if you’re talking in terms of actual power, then you will need to spend a hella lot of money to make any good amount of power, but that’s what the turbo series engines are for, if it can’t hit even 200kw then I’m afraid to say it isn’t much.

If you’re talking “fun power” then that’s a whole different story

It's just a really nice car to drive.

No need to spend huge $ to make power on these lancers
For about $100 you can buy say 20 meters of thermal exhaust wrap And do the headers with it.
Do the radiator hoes with it
Get a decent sized sheet of gold heat insulator wrap. Do the air box. Snorkel. And the inlet hose from air box to the throttle body.do the inlet manifold. Do the fuel rail.
For a K&N air cleaner. That will do a tremendous amount just on it's own before you get the ECU tuned.
Don't get brainwashed to think you need a turbo and the rest of the crap to many people crap on about

thats the thing though; you can make power on these cars but not a lot for the price; the best ive seen on a CJ is 180 or so kw WITH a turbo kit to the crank on a manual; and that was roughly 160kw to the wheels, realistically it would be fun but wont be winning any races versus the older brothers aka ralliart/evo

Everyone gets wrapped up with power and thinks it just HP. There is also Torque that goes with it. The 4B11 2 litre is a square motor and torque to boot. It's all the restrictions that kill it. Remove the restrictions and you have a very good vehicle you can have a lot of fun with very inexpensively for many years to come.
