  3. Sepelio - 2017 Lancer ES 5spd

    Hello, It's a pleasure to meet all of you. I just rebought my second Lancer. First Lancer was a 2014 Lancer ES 5spd. I've never owned a car before always ways mud rallying Toyota's (85 20R & 94 V6). I ripped on Naomi to hard and she needed a motor after 49k. Mitsubishi covered me on a new engine due to worn tappets. During that time I was using K&N oil filters, in which time they underwent a recall. I don't think I was to blame but I can drop and romp a clutch pretty good. Anyways I got a new baby. Pictures will be coming soon. Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. Sincerely, Sepelio
  4. W/O Turbo - Sight Shield Removed

    Evening, Well plenty of people do it, I'm sure it would allow more air to flow in front of the intake ducting. I just like the looks of a clean engine bay so I'll be opting for either a Ralliart replacement or to just keep my stock one removed. I've been driving for the past few days with it off and have noticed more throttle response in the 2k-3k rpm range. So I'm interested in building that "air slide" or ducting I mentioned.
  5. Hello, Took off my Sight Shield (Part# 6400A831 ) today to do a little research. Was looking for more air flow into the intake ducting. I noticed a lot of people cutting holes into their sight shield to provide the increase. I decided to just take mine off. It may just be wishful thinking but, I felt as if I lost throttle response for the first drive (17m @ 55mph), then ate a Double Stack from Wendy's (trigger), got back into the car and drove back home and since then I believe I have better throttle response from 3k-4k. I'm aware that when MIVEC starts to increase dramatically but seen as I'm still under 5k miles. I don't like to push it to 6k just yet. I figured I'd post my research and leave it opento discussion. Considering buying a Ralliart Sight Shield (Part# 6400C085 ), to keep a clean/stock looking engine bay. Thanks for any input you'll share. Sincerely, Sepelio
  6. W/O Turbo - Sight Shield Removed

    Yes. The item with the slots is the one I currently have. Looking at the benefits of switching to a Ralliart Sight Shield (Top). I'm in Minnesota so it cost me 100$ from the dealership.
  7. W/O Turbo - Sight Shield Removed

    Good afternoon, I hope you all are well. Here's my engine as of now. Removed the Sight Shield as stated before. Looking to build a air pathway "slide" from the upper front grille to the entrance of the intake ducting. Only issue is the location of one of the horn directly below the intake ducting behind the upper front grille. Seems like it could be relocated with ease, even if it was just loosened and turned to the right 45'. I believe this would give me enough room to position a "slide" for the air to path upwards toward the intake ducting. I use some type of tubing and brake ducts to path it directly in front of the intake ducting. Should be able to drill a few holes in the black section of the grille mount near the bolt and the otherside to secure a brake ducting line or a "slide" for the air to travel up near the intake ducting. What you think? It would be fun to build and maybe see some improvements to airflow into the system. Thanks for reading I'll see about an update once my Ralliart intake ducting arrives. Sincerely, Sepelio
  8. W/O Turbo - Sight Shield Removed

    Hello, Just got back from another drive (17m @ 55mph), while I was driving I decided to check the response from 2k-3k. Seemed like I was accelerating alittle faster nothing to dramatic but alittle bit more torque (figured I'd notice that over horsepower). I should be getting the Ralliart Intake Ducting in the next few days. Will update my build thread with pictures of the removal of the Sight Shield and install of the Ralliart Intake Ducting. Sincerely, Sepelio

    Very nice. +1 Automatic?
  10. Sepelio

    Hello, Hope you all are well today. Figured I'd start my project page today. I currently own a 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 5Spd. It's going to be daily driven so going for a N/A build, mostly focusing on air flow through and around the car. Doubt I'll go with a lightweight flywheel or pulley (pulley could happen if feel like the increase in output outweighs the loss in stability. Here he is stock with side wind deflectors. Sitting @ stock heigth, I'm considering H&R Sport Springs. I was advised about the damage that can be dealt to the struts so I'm searching for performance struts in the meantime (any suggestions). Just ordered a Ralliart Intake Ducting (Part# 1505A305 ). Should be here in a few days. Next update will include a pictorial review of the install. Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoy the projects unfolding. Sincerely, Sepelio

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have already talked to a dealship here in MN and they said $101.xx Should be getting in the next week or two. Just moved so I'm dealing with those matters at the moment. Does your '16 have a after market air filter? I'm thinking Works might be my best option. Had a K&N in my '14 and didn't do well with the dust in North Dakota. Sincerely, Sepelio

    Hello, Are those RallyArmors unmoddified? They look really flush compared to others I've seen. Sincerely, Sepelio

    You think there would be enough room to redirect the air flow to path to the air box location?

    Hello, Is there a difference between the RA & EvoX hoods? I love the lines, very clean. Does the middle vent dump onto the exhaust manifold? Sincerely, Sepelio

  16. Sepelio - 2017 Lancer ES 5spd

    Hello, Hope everyone is well. This is my new baby. Sepelio is his name. I really wanted the last year they were going to make the Lancer outside the Asia market. I was going to go for the black version but, the diamond white pearl really popped to me. I like how it rests with a more blue pearlescent offset than most of the white pearls I see with the orange pearlescent offset. With the updated face I was pulled to a better offset of colors than what the black was providing (plastic housing for running lights & fog lights). Should be able to acquire a RA Intake duct from a dealership in the next few weeks. Might go drop-in Works or K&N air filter with a foam prefilter so help reduce the poor filtration that the K&N gauze can attribute too. Anyone have info on the performance of the Works Drop-in? Looking into wheels here soon. Already know a lot of the options cause I previously owned a Lancer but couldn't pull myself away from steelies. Really Like a set of Advan's I seen, can't recall their name right now. Might keep it all JDM expect the lowering springs which will probably be H&R's. Enough chitchat for now though. Ttys. Sincerely, Sepelio

    Thanks GSTACRUZ777, I asked the dealship they said they can't say for certain but,I'm going to assume it will work, doesn't look like the engine bay has changed much. I'll work towards the purchase in the coming week. Sincerely, Sepelio

  21. All About Exhausts.

    Hello, Any idea on the Injen SES 1838 fitting a 2017 Lancer ES FWD. Seen a video of it on a 2016 via Youtube, just wanted to make sure the pathing was the same. Thanks in advance for any responses. Sincerely, Sepelio
  22. ALL About Intake Systems

    Hello, Does anyone know if the RA Intake Duct(Part #1505A265) Will fit a 2017 Lancer ES 2.0 5spd? Got a local price for $101.xx, the thing is they won't accept returns, and I don't want to try and resell it to a previous model. Thanks for any consideration in advance. Sincerely, Sepelio
