1992 MITSUBISHI EVO II (CD9A)
Hamilton-based Lawrence Knight recently completed the transplant of the 350kW 4G63 engine set-up from his previous Evo, which ran a 10.6-second pass on chromies. It went into this Evo II following gearbox failure which resulted in a high-speed wall contact at Meremere Dragway.
The new build has already run a 10.8-second pass with only 303kW at the wheels, and riding on street tyres. Lawrence wasn’t able to crack into the 10s down in Motueka, with a best time of 11.0.
