2.2 STROKER EVO VIII
As the old saying goes, there’s no replacement for displacement, which is why Tom Hunter opted to stroke his 4G63 with a Nitto 2.2-litre kit, pumping more goodies into the motor build than your heart can handle. It’s destined for his Evo VIII, and inside the head you’ll find a set of Kelford 280/280R camshafts and valve springs, while the bottom end comprises a swathe of forged Nitto components. A Borg Warner S300-SXE snail sits pride of place atop a Full Race twin-scroll manifold with twin TiAL 44m wastegates, feeding boost to a custom 77mm throttle body and Hypertune intake using dual fuel rails to house the Bosch 1000cc and 1650cc E85 injectors.
NZEFI has whipped up a set of custom flush-mounted Bosch Motorsport coils rated to 895kW, a set-up which Tom’s motor has acted as a testbed for, while a Link G4 plug and play takes care of engine management.
The aim is upwards of 600kW, and to keep the car street driveable with flexi-fuel.
The vehicle’s body wears a Voltex widebody kit, the only one in the South Island, according to Tom, and hides a set of 18x10-inch (+15) Rota D2EX.
Given the rapid progress, he hopes to have the car ready for MOD 2018 (Mitsubishi Owners Day) in June.
