More power to Lancer

Since its introduction in 2008, the Lancer Evolution X has been an enormous success, gaining popular acclaim from customers and the media alike. Now, after extensive testing, Mitsubishi Motors in Europe has added the eagerly awaited FQ-330 SST to its lineup.

The FQ-330 SST model utilizes a breathing kit and ECU re-map to accomplish its enhanced power output. This power upgrade noticeably improves not only the acceleration, but also significantly enhances the drive.

The power upgrade to 329 hp is achieved by the addition of a high performance exhaust and downpipe, an intercooler piping kit, racing suction pipe, and upgraded CAT, which delivers an additional 36 hp and 22 lb/ft of torque mated to the advanced 6-speed Twin-Clutch Sports Shift Transmission.

No word yet on when the model will be hitting North American shores.
