A few days ago we brought news of a Ferrari 458 Italia that got an extra 11hp just by getting an Akrapovic exhaust system put in, and now we bring you another model that has received the same treatment. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X has had its output bumped with the use of a lighter exhaust system from Akrapovic.
A standard Evo X is powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit that delivers 295 hp at 6,500 rpm and 366 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. That’s not bad for a sports sedan, but with the new entry level slip-on exhaust system, which is 5 kilos lighter than the stock one, that output has been increased by 11 HP and 9 NM. Move up to the Evolution system, which is 16 kilos lighter than the stock, and the car finds itself with an extra 31hp and 26Nm of torque.
The new slipon exhaust system features a dual “split muffler” design that incorporates a unique cast titanium Y-shaped collector and flange assembly. The casting allows for a higher-flow and is more intricate than using cut and welded tubing. The
The new Evolution System includes the same two titanium mufflers, but adds a high-flow link pipe that bolts directly to the factory down pipe.
