In 2020, I got my hands on this beautiful 1995 Mitsubishi Evolution III. This car has a pretty cool history. It was raced/drifted in 2003 in it’s stock form, then it was sold to a friend of mine in 2014. The engine was then rebuilt from the ground up with high end components and was made into a very fast street car pushing 680 all wheel horsepower at 40 psi of boost. I now have it and am going through it all, upgrading a bunch of things, redoing wiring, and giving it the love and retirement it deserves. Below, I will get into the specifics of the components in the car and update it as I put new stuff into the car.

Engine Control Unit / Tune
Currently running the stock ECU with DSMLink / ECMLink v3. This allows me to connect via USB to the car and monitor, backup fuel maps, and swap fuel maps on the fly. The car is currently mapped for E85, but I will soon be getting it remapped and tuned for both E85 and 91/93 Octane. This will allow me to run either fuel by simply switching the maps using ECMLink.
