The Scoobishi generation may be passing, but there’s still time for some crazy incarnations
2 August 2005

UK-based tuner Turbo Dynamics is working on the wildest incarnation yet of Mitsubishi’s rally-bred Lancer Evolution series. Using the new Evo IX’s variable valve-timed 2.0-litre unit as a basis, TD boss Peter Marsh has designed a new turbocharger that boosts power from the standard FQ-300’s 300bhp to a massive 450bhp – 50bhp more than the limited edition Evo VIII MR FQ-400.

Orders are already being taken for the turbo upgrade, which is expected to cost around £2300 when it becomes available later in the summer. That price includes a cast magnesium compressor housing and the revised turbocharger with four-inch inlet, enlarged compressor wheel, ball bearing conversion, cut back turbine blades and an uprated actuator.
