Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 tuning by Simon Norris!

After some time, we have a another representative of automobiles from the producer with three diamonds in sign, the idol of almost all tuners – Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution SWB of a 9th generation. Its change to the one of fastest cars in the world was provided by also famous, a 28 years old tuner Simon Norris, a founder of Norris Designs company.

A lot of powerful cars was made in his workshop, for example:

1. Nissan 200SX S13 – 600 hp

2. Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V GSR – 580 hp

3. Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII RS – 730 hp

4. Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII MR RS – 612 hp

5. Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX SWB – we talk about it today

But first, we’ll talk about stock Evolution:

Mitsubishi Lancer EVO
Because Simon Norris is a defender of a performance tuning before a styling, so in this part of the article we talk about values of the stock engine..
Volume of engine: 2 liters (1997 ccm)
Type: petrol
Maximum output: 227 kW (309 hp) / 6500 rpm
Maximum torque: 403 Nm / 4400 rpm
0-100kmph acceleration: 5,7s
Maximum speed: 250km/h
Wheel drive: AWD
Because this site is a tuning-oriented, a stock production isn’t very important for us, so let’s move to the modified one. As I said at beginning, Simon Norris is the tuner with ambitions for speed. But don’t worry! He took care also about visual side of tuning.


Mitsubishi Lancer EVO Norris
As you have noticed on worldwide tuning scene, tuners use distinctive and provocative colors. Simon Norris isn’t an exception, so he bet on the Kawasaki catalogue and chose Kawasaki ZX-10 with a green pearl.

He modified a 5-seats sedan to the two-door sport car with an anticorrosive modification. He lowered a roof to ensure better aerodynamics.

Also a change of stock back-up lights to the pure ones and a change of stock rear and side (with the car’s tank cap inside) windows to Lexan windows are important modifications.

A safety frame improves higher safety. Of course, lighter cars are better suited for sprints, so Simon used kevlar fibre components in his Evolution XI. Thanks to them, the car thin down from 1400kgs to 1080kgs. Ladies, that’s a diet! And what all is a part of the carbon body-kit?

• GT Fabrications mudguards
• Seibon hood designed to carry the ram air as much as possible
• Carbontrix front bumper
• Chargespeed boot cover
• Raceonusa rear spoiler
• carbon roof
• carbon diffuser – prevents from an air turbulence to provide better stability on the track

For they searching exhaust tips in the rear bumper, it’s waste of time, they’re situated in the side doorsteps. To improve stability on the track, Simon Norris has decided to broaden mudguards and install Volker Racing CE28-N – an 9,5J18 alloy wheel disk with the Avon ZZR tyres in a 256/35 ZR18 dimension. To brake this wheels, he used 8 piston brake (32 mm vented brake disk) Brembo with Ferodo relining.

In an interior, we can find only essential things for the car which want to achieve great goals. There are very comfortable and famous Sparco seats and steering wheel.

A faster transmission is provided by more and more popular sequential shift. As in exterior, lightweight carbon parts (side shutters, door filling, dashboard, tank cap, deck) are also used inside the beast.

A top dog in the end – the performance. It’s necessary to say, that the car was dismantled to smallest parts. And only few of them got back. A change of stock parts to the sporting ones caused high increase in the sprint performance and speed. Car uses fuel assigned for racing cars – Klotz 118 Octane Race Fuel.
Volume of engine: 2300 ccm3
Type petrol
Maximum output: 619 kW / 814hp – quite high increase against stock
Maximum torque: 860 Nm
0-100kmph acceleration: 2,5 seconds
Maximum speed: 346 km/h (215 Mph)
1 mile sprint: around 9 seconds
Wheel drive: AWD

This is caused by the parts directly from Norris Designs workshop: forged pistons Je Pistons, 25 in-line oil cooler, intake and exhaust vents, valve springs, exhaust drop-in, forged crank shaft, intercooler, water cooler with forced circulation, ignition system CDi, gas tank, exhaust system. I won’t mention other parts, only producers of other parts - Crower, K&N, Motec, HKS, SARD, Greddy, ...
