    Highest gas, electricity, home, tuition and smog prices in the country will be had in California. And you can only get piss water 91 octane here for $2.33 a gallon. Cali isn't sounding so good now, is it?
    yes, it is still sounding -that- good.

If you decide to go with the AEM, make sure you take it to a shop that is certified in tuning/installing of the EMS. You can locate such shops on the AEM website.
    oh trust me i wasn't gonna install it myself... theres a place in dallas that does AEM installs and tuning ..... i kinda know a lil about tuning because i was gonna do a utec setup in the wifeys WRX.... but im not gonna attempt to put that in its outta my league.....

    Go for it, but do so at your own risk. You'll go slightly faster than in a wrx with comparable mods, but the reliability is $hit. If you get an evo, buy a few extra transfer cases to hold you over

    Well yes and no. There's a design flaw in the evo VIII transfer cases. I heard they might be doing a recall, but i'm not sure. I know of many people that had them go under normal spirited driving, and lots of others at the track. Those at the track werent under an enormous amount of power either. In fact, there's a Turbotrix customer I know of who had his bust on the street, got a replacement from the dealer, and the new one lasted 200 miles. You roll the dice with the evo's. Al's car went 11.2 with 540 whp and his driveline is fine. The TTR shop car made 550+ whp, no complaints yet. I will say this...every time i'm at turbotrix, there's AT LEAST 1 to 2 evo's in there for clutch/transfer case problems.


    Whatever, I'd still get one. I love the syling and the 4G63 speaks for itself. If I were to get one I'd wait until there's an aftermarket diff or something to take the place of that transfer case, or at least weld the stock one. I hear a Quaiffe is in the works...

    No probolems with the transfer cases, I have 25,000 miles on mine no problems with back to back to back awd Launches and 140+++MPH driving and gas stabs.


    The only ones that I see break are teh Idiots that put on HEAVY ass clutches and then dump it, they can then break, the stock Evo CLutch will slip way before a transfer case breaks. Notice how it is always some random kid who never had a car even as close as the Evo break it. I had a TSi AWD for 4 years, and the Evo, NEVER had any drivetrain problems cept the clutch and it was because teh car had toooo much power.


    Of course there may be some manufacturing flaws in a % of them, has to be were are not 100% perfect.

    So is this AEM stand alone available for the REX? If it is what is it putting down to the wheels on a stock rex?

    I am not sure how a AEM would work on the WRX< keep with the UTEC, I havee seen 300WHP on a VF34 on pump gas. The AEM was specifically designed for the Evo, even has a pre-programed base map for it to start off on. You can incorporate a Wide band 02 sensor and Knock sensor and cold starts and use it as an EBC, its amazing.


    Again the Stock Evo puts down 230WHP, and after the AEM was installed and tuned it put down 300WHP, amazing.

    the AEM is specific for every car, and they just came out with the box for the wrx. Mark from Turbotrix told me to expect another 30-40 whp on pump from just the AEM alone. Believe me, I have some of the highest numbers around for given 'stages' of the UTEC thanks to Junior at TTR, but at this power level the fact that the UTEC is constantly fighting the stock computer is robbing me of some extra valuable horsepower. I'd like to see 410 or so on pump, and once i get some fuel pressure and the AEM it shouldn't be a problem. Mark can tune the AEM's like no other, so I'm confident of 400+ whp on pump.

    EDIT: I also already have the UEGO O2 wideband, and it is ****!

    yep, bass is right about specificity of the standalone. that is not to say, though, that the evo is VERY responsive to modding, more so than the rex. so, that said, sure, the AEM is very well suited for the evo.

    the other downside of the UTEC is boost control- surprisingly, quite a few guys have been complaining about UTEC boost, so they are throwing EBC on top of UTEC. not bashing UTEC- just saying something better is walking our way..............

    Mitsubishi Company DYING,..
    http://www.keepmedia.com/ShowItemDet...0032&oliID=213

    "Mitsubishi Motors runs into trouble as CEO resigns
    by Earle Eldridge | Apr 27 '04

    Mitsubishi Motors CEO Rolf Eckrodt resigned Monday in a move that had been expected but is troublesome for the Japanese automaker because Eckrodt's anticipated successor won't get the job.
    Eckrodt, 61, was sent to Japan in 2001 by DaimlerChrysler, which has a controlling 37% stake in Mitsubishi. Until last week, Andreas Renschler, 44, a rising star who has run DaimlerChrysler's Mercedes-Benz plant in the USA and is currently in charge of its Smart small-car division, was expected to replace Eckrodt sometime this year.

    But those plans blew up with DaimlerChrysler's surprise announcement that it would not invest an estimated $3.8 billion to help struggling Mitsubishi, hit by recalls in Japan and huge sales declines and financial losses in the USA. DaimlerChrysler now is expected to try to sell its stake in Mitsubishi.

    Renschler headed a team of financial experts that went to Japan last month to study whether DaimlerChrysler should pump the cash into Mitsubishi, which needs money to continue its product-development programs."


    Why do some people talk ****, before they know what they are talking about? What have we learned here today? Mitsubishi IS going out of bussiness. The EVO, DOES have a gearbox recall. Just because someone owns a car, they seem to think if they ignore reality, that it will not effect the car they drive. WRONG.

    Bassman,
    You really think that you will gain 30-40 whp from an engine management change?? The UTEC is just as much of a standalone in a sense as the AEM when in open loop. Thats the only point where you make power(in open loop). So, I dont see how the UTEC is 'fighting' the stock ECU because in open loop the UTEC has nothing to do with the stock ecu. Please explain what you mean by all this. Oh, and watch those coilpacks with the AEM due to some dwell time issues that the AEM's are known to have with some cars.
