    Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX Review

    Hi all, today i'll be reviewing the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX. Ive owned this car since Nov 2012, and I must say, it's been the best purchase I've ever made. Here are a few pros and cons of the car from my experience with it.

    Pros:
    4g63 Mivec engine (bulletproof) currently running 28lbs of boost reliably for 3yrs now.
    Beautiful and rare Electric Blue Pearl that was produced for only 1 year (sept 05-oct 06) evo 8/9
    5spd transmission that's good for 800+whp
    Awd and turbocharged 2.0 with extremely quick spool
    Factory Recaro seats with 4pt harness slots, along with brembo brakes, and a momo racing wheel
    Handles like a dream in stock form or with aftermarket coilovers
    ACD included in the suspension system

    Cons:
    Turbo will taper off too soon before redline (can be tuned out tho)
    Understeers from the factory (rear sway fixes that)
    The synchros in the 6spd included in the MR model is very weak

    Those are the only cons I can think of off the top of my head. This car is the closest thing to a racecar you can get from the factory in it's time. This is a 100% reliable platform that can withstand about anything you throw at it. With a vibrant world rally past, the lancer evolution is a platform to own. Thanks for reading my review
