  1. Lancer GT 2.0l 2008

    Welcome to PL!
  2. Eclipse Cross

    still pretty new and probably people are worried about their warranty..I wonder if the 4B40 will be safer with CVTs lol
  3. yes. all 2016+ front ends will be the same, minor difference will be the drl's, some may have it, some may not and would just have the black plastic covers.
  4. Denyzen Gts N/A Build

    from a Galant?
  5. Denyzen Gts N/A Build

    with the TB swap, as long as you follow the relearn process (turn on engine, don't step on any pedals and let the rough idle relearn) , you'll be fine but the TPS (black box) should be swapped since it is not compatible with the Lancers. What TB did you get?
  6. Denyzen Gts N/A Build

    You have probably checked your vehicle but I might as well just remind you again about FED and Pzev vehicles since the pzev needs an adapter from the super circuit 4-2-1 headers and only RRM has it for $99.

    I'd suggest to put back your stock snorkel to channel air to your short ram as it will only suck in the warm ambient engine bay temperatures or better to get a RA snorkel to have a bigger bore to help cooler air in. The TB swap will be an easy process once you know the process. I will be swapping mine too this spring. I think the most important part is to ensure that you relearn it to prevent some idling issues.

    Just a question, why short ram though?
  9. OBX axle back exhaust 08+ ES

    Axleback is mainly for sound IMO. You feel a change since it will be less restrictive compared to the stock muffler but when it comes to numbers, I think it won't register any gains. Cat back and header back will be your best choice if you want some minor gains.
  10. 4G69 throttle body installation

    will do!
  11. P2122 throttle positon sensor?

    That’s your tps
  12. 4G69 throttle body installation

    Hello and welcome! I have a 2016 ES and will be swapping the 4g69 TB this spring with the help of a buddy of mine. The stock coolant hoses needs to be changed as it won't reach. You also need to change the black box and just need to make a slight cut to fit the housing. Just let the engine idle for 5 mins to have it re-learn after install.
  13. 2016+ Facelift Lip questions

    Lastly and the most recent Lip I found was a Devsport FRS Lip. Made of ABS plastic sheet which gives you a splitter type look. Unfortunately, the sides again does not meet the edge of the fender but one thing good with Devsport is they have ABS winglets to attach on the sides to give you the flared and flushed look.

  14. I wanted to start up a topic where it touches base with the new facelift front end. In other Lancer pages, it usually gets tons of questions whether which lip will fit the facelift ones. Currently there are a few options on lip choices that can be installed on the new front ends. The most common lip you see is the ever famous Ezlip or AllFit Lip. It is easy to install and its soft structured material makes you easy to mold the shape of the front end. A few flaws that I see here is the sagging/curtain look. The tip to have a flat, splitter type look for these universal lips is to slightly stretch the material while you're working your way on the bumper edges. In cold areas, I would suggest to heat the 3M double adhesive tape first before applying to get the adhesive be very sticky, and of course, pre-clean your surface.

Solid and you can choose whether you want the flared side or just the straight ones. This lip has mixed reviews when matched with facelift models. Lots of people are also using this lip for pre-2016 models. With this one, I would suggest to use stainless steel screws/bolts and supplement it with 3M double adhesive tape all around for maximum support. A few issues needed to be mentioned here is that some complained of the tight fitment especially for the flared ones. Some used a dremel to trim some edges to obtain their fit of preference. There were also some issues saying that the edge of the flare side does not align to the edge of the fenders , having said this, some wanted to choose the non-flared ones as it's much more easier to align.

It's made of FRP and it comes unpainted. Easy bolt on as per staff whom I spoke with. Upon doing some additional research, I also have come up with Rainbow Pen's Mugen Lip which looks very similar to what Drive Performance Parts are offering. You be the judge if it's the same.

    Hello there and Welcome. I have a facelift lancer (2016). Majority of all parts are applicable except for a slight change with the MAF sensor mount. Some 2015 models already have the newer version (diamond shaped) versus the square shaped mount. That is one thing you need to consider if you are planning to change your intake. As far as everything, any 08+ models of lancer can fit to ours. Feel free to ask some questions and I will gladly help you as far as my knowledge goes. We also have a specific FB group page that is for the Facelift Lancers only (2016+), that's where all facelift lancer owners interact. Happy modding!
  16. Tsudo N1 vs. SRS Axleback exhaust

    I have the Injen SES and it has a deep tone without being raspy. Very minimal drone is heard in the cabin on highways.

    Just do resonator delete and straight pipe if you want for sound. Imo.
