My 2008 Lancer CJ VRX needs a turbo kit
Posted 18 February 2011 - 09:27 AM
Im new to the whole thing so im a bit of a noob...
i have been given a new 2008 Lancer CJ VRX and im looking to put a turbo in it. I know everyone will most likely go "sell it and get an evo" but since i have been given the car i would like to keep it so i can show the person that i appreciate there generosity.
Im trying to decide if i should supercharge(heard you can plus it would sound sweet)or put a sensible turbo kit in her.
hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me and supply me with some kits and prices..

the money it would cost to do it, would get you one.

I know you said you want to keep the laser but, EVO COMES WITH:
forged internals (can run 20psi)
all wheel drive
better gear box
better seats, interior etc etc
better re sale value
and best of all better street cred (not a girls car)
so how much would it cost to get lanser to that level?
EVO = WIN

Honestly everyone isn't just saying "buy an evo" for no reason...
When it comes to resale / overall cost, you will lose alot of money if you go and turbo it yourself.
The fact mitsubishi released a turbo front wheel drive version : the Ralliart TC-SST is essentially a factory backed version of the car you are trying to "make" - why would you go to the hassle of screwing around yourself.
Honestly, i would sell yours and buy the Ralliart version - it will work out cheaper in the long run, with better resale and a factory warranty.

i wouldn't waste my time with one of those personally. Not when you can get an evo 9 for the same money.

Sell your lancer and use the money you were planning on using to turbo the lancer and get a car that is turbo from factory.
Much easier and less hassles.
