  2. Isc coilovers?

    Lol. Not Life definitely. I've known people who had teins on them and pretty much they're still alive right now. Not unless it's the lifespan of a coilover tou are talking about. When it comes to coilovers, here are the reputable names: BC coilovers, Truharts, Teins, Megan racing. Some people may have their own perception about what brand they want. Pretty much any 08+ will work since the platform have not changed. You can always doyble check with the seller.
  3. Isc coilovers?

    Try checking the price for Tein street basis, I think they are much cheaper. I suggest if you get some coilovers, also get the sleeves to protect the dampening mechanism from salt and harsh winters.

    Welcome to PL! Where in Canada?
  5. Ralliart hood

    compare them to your paint code that is located near your door panel. CMU10017, U17 - Mercury grey mettalic A31, CMA10031 - silver mettalic
  6. Hey man! I have a 2016 ES. To answer a few of your questions, here are some of my list of what I did that is applicable to your query: (MINE already have answered most of them) Ralliart Hood - Evo hood will also fit, you may need to change the bolts as what I did but it was not an issue. Duraflex is good if you are handy in sanding but I'd stay away from them. I suggest searching for a used OEM hoods to assure proper fitment and less complications. Lancer-X Rear diffuser - I purchased my diffuser on ebay and it was from Russia. It is similar to the M-Power ones but cheaper and the fits very tightly. I did some minor tweaking since I need a bigger exit hole for my exhaust. Plastdip accents-now switched to Vinyl - I used to plasti dip everything that is chrome but I switched all of them to vinyl wrap. Much smoother and cleaner look compared to the plastidip. Vivid is the less inexpensive brand but I'd go with either Avery or 3M. One thing good with these products is that you can always peel them off if you're unhappy with it. Injen SES exhaust- this is my current set-up now. Its an axle-back and it's a direct fir to the newer models. Just keep in mind that there are two different areas where your pipe exits; one from the center and one from the rear passenger side.
  7. You're right with the weight. RA is approximately 1900kgs compared to SE which is 1800kgs.

  9. Almost end of season

  10. I've always thought that spring rates might be different knowing that RA are a bit heavier than NA Lancers. I was about to install an Eibach RA specific spring but the tech told me about different spring rates which would affect the ride. Atleast more stiffer anyways since changing to lowering springs will really affect the ridability of the vehicle. How are you liking it so far?
  11. Before the sickspeed horns install

    Got it from Canadian Tire. Any local automotive stores will surely have them. If not, try ebay. Got them for $40CAD.

  13. Insulation Evo X Hood

    I didn't have the insulation too. What I did is trim the excess windshield washer fluid line to just have enough slack that it's not hanging. No issues underneath. No cracking or any issues due to heat.
  14. Finding new coilovers.

    How low do you want to go? We had the same thoughts with this before. and I ended up purchasing an Eibach Pro-Kit (http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Eibach-6048-140-Pro-Kit-Lowering-Springs-2008-2017-Mitsubishi-Lancer-DE-ES-GTS-/391772773831?hash=item5b377a1dc7:g:3k4AAOSwDiBZEJ~x&vxp=mtr). Lowest you can go for this is 1.2 Front/0.8 Rear drop. I chose this over the Eibach Sport Lines (http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Eibach-4-4860-Sportline-Kit-Set-Of-4-Springs-fit-Mitsubishi-Lancer-08-17-/131140722506?hash=item1e88989f4a:g:3fgAAOSwDuJW1cMp&vxp=mtr) which can give you 1.7 front/1.5 rear drop, since our winter roads here sucks and I daily my ride. Over the course of inquiring and doing a little research, I've read some articles that the Eibach pro-kits are more compatible with your OEM struts, but then again it all boils down to how you drive. If you really wanted to go with coilovers, BC Racing usually tops the charts with performance and ride quality (some may contradict with this), here's the link: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/BC-Racing-BR-FULL-Coilovers-SHOCKS-SPRINGS-KIT-FOR-2008-2016-Mitsubishi-Lancer-/112418279504?hash=item1a2ca6d050:g:S74AAOSwmkpZePQA&vxp=mtr. Cheapest coilovers with quality would be the Tein Street Basis http://www.ebay.ca/itm/TEIN-Street-Basis-Coilovers-02-07-MITSUBISHI-LANCER-CS6A-ES-/222537754992?hash=item33d048a970:g:plQAAOSwiOFZN616&vxp=mtr. If you drive on harsh winter roads and you have coils, I suggest that you get some ISC coilover covers to protect your dampering mechanism from salt and grime http://www.ebay.ca/itm/ISC-Suspension-370mm-Length-Coilover-Covers-pair-/381533554807?hash=item58d52c0877:g:vBsAAOSw--1Wq8ar&vxp=mtr. Just take note that once you have changed your springs, no matter what the brand is, you will really expect a change in your car's ride quality especially when it comes to bumps since it will be more stiffer. Bonus with the coilovers is that you can always adjust ride height to your preference. Hope this helps.

    i like how the chrome handled the tint. looks like a pewter-like accent. I also have a medium-smoke tint film on my headlights.

    At first , I had little clearance and sometimes on cold starts, I heard some vibrations so I brought it back to my local exhaust shop and did some tweaking a little bit. Now I have approximately 1-1.5inches from the inlet bumper. My car is doing good. I've been saving up for some coilovers. Probably be going with Teins and will be purchasing those ISC coilover covers (http://iscsuspension-na.com/store/#!/ISC-Coilover-Covers/c/11995043) to help save the dampering mechanism once it is exposed to salt during winter. I am still on the hunt for that RA inlet duct for better airflow directed to my k&n drop in filter, I wanted to have those fq400 front vent type but I guess you need to put a hole on your bumper and I'm not good at that. I have been also contemplating on doing a tune. I just need to do more research on it.

    This is the only clip I have days after I have installed mine.
  21. RA hood and Ezlip

    Thanks!
  22. RA hood and Ezlip

    Just did a couple of exterior mods to my Lancer. a while back, I purchased a RA hood without the scoop and the vents that's why it took me a while to look for a set that was not crazy expensive. I managed to get a set from ebay and dipped the scoop to black since the color was the wicked white one. The hood was pretty much a direct bolt on to my 2016 Lancer. I cant imagine how light weight it is. So for those who usually ask why replace the hood where in fact my engine is a NA one, I'd say I am after the weight reduction..and hey! it's my money! lol.. I also got an ezlip and installed it and I am satisfied with the results. Now, I am having a hard time selecting for which type of wheels that will look decent and not break the bank. Good luck to me.
