Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution information ( EVO 6 )


Mitsubishi Evolution Information - EVO 6/EVO VI

The EVO 6 looked basically the same expect for a few minor revisions which increased stability and downforce, these were to comply with the new WRC regs. Again the cooling system was further revised which included a new external oil cooler. On the RS the turbo was changed to a TD05HRA-16G6-10.5T item which used a titanium turbine impeller to reduce weight and for increased strength. Both cars were given a better flowing intake pipe. Chassis modifications included forged aluminium suspension arms, extra spot welding, thicker steel and improved adhesive to increase strength and torsional rigidity. The EVO 6 also came with a new design of alloy wheel in the same size as he EVO 5. The interior had blue detailing in the form of stitching, materials and gauge cluster faces. MOMO steering wheel and Recaro seats were still included in the GSR.

Mitsubishi Evolution Information - EVO 6 Tommi Makinen Edition

Unlike most car manufacturers where special editions have only superficial differences from the rest of the model line-up the Tommi Makinen Edition included some core improvements over the standard EVO 6. This included a new TD05HRA-15GK2-10.5T with a titanium turbine wheel, a quieter exhaust system, 10mm lowered suspension and a quicker steering rack. The front bumper lost the large driving lights and were replaced by large vents. The Makinen edition came with Enkei 17inch alloy wheels. 2,500 were made with many believing this to be the best example of the EVO line.
