EVO X Fuel and Tuning Parts


RE 3 Port Boost Control Solenoid (3 Port BCS)

$95 Price includes USPS Priority Shipping to the lower 48 states.

What is the best 3 port boost control solenoid for the Mitsubishi EVO? We like this one :-)

It comes complete with silicone hose and zip ties for mounting and securing hoses.  The RRE 3 Port Boost Control Solenoid includes a direct plug in connector to fit the EVO 8/9/X

We use these about 8 times a week on all of the cars that we tune in house here at RRE. We find that it is more responsive and smother than the more expensive ones. Solenoids will make some noise when they are clicking so we typically will zip tie the BCS to a hose or wire loom to isolate the possible sound. These can be used with the 3rd port venting or with the air going back in. We typically vent it to keep things simple. Fittings are included to run the BCS either way. Many aftermarket intakes have janky fittings  and tiny nipples that are not well secureds for the vent air to blow back in to the intake. The less you push and pull on those little fittings the better.

 


AEM E-85 Rated Fuel Pump for the EVO X 50-1220

$122.99 inc the E85 Hose and clamps and Priority Mail 2/3 Day Shipping

The new AEM 320 lph drop in fuel pump for the EVO X (AEM part number 50-1220) is currently our go-to fuel pump for the best fit and best reliability. We never had much long term luck with the other drop in pumps for the EVO X. Premature wear and clogged up filters were becoming too common.

We have also seen many stock fuel pumps die, some on the dyno right in front of us. While the stock pump when everything is working perfect will keep up with up to 350 whp on pump gas, once the pump and fuel gets hot some random fuel pressure drop offs become common. This has caused some busted spark plugs and the resultant mess from running lean.

When we sell or install the AEM 50-1220 drop in pump for the EVO X, we include a new fuel pressure hose that is compatible with E-85. Even if you have no plans of running E85 now, sooner or later you will :-)

There will be random reviews around the web on other versions of AEM fuel pumps. They are older reviews and “How-To’s” before this EVO X specific pump was available. Some people try to use the Walbro 255 size pumps and they require special expensive adapters that eliminate the fuel filter housing. Look! No filter housing :-P

pump no filter

In addition to running no pick up sock, the car that this pump came out of had no fuel filter under the hood either. He was on his second motor after breaking sparkplugs on his first motor with this setup.

Many people confuse the fuel pre filter on the bottom of the pump for the actual fuel filter. That pick up pre filter is just there to keep swarf out of the fuel pump. You need a proper filter after the fuel pump (miniature inline screen filters don’t count)

This means that we prefer to keep the factory filter housing in place and functional. We have also seen some seriously sketchy fuel pump installs. Some by under water basket weavers, many with kinked hoses. Often with the wrong hose not rated for high pressure. Somehow something that seems easy to install ends up making a mess.

The AEM 50-1220 fuel pump also fits several other vehicles besides the 2008-15 EVO X and RalliArt. Here is AEM’s propaganda for all vehicles:

AEM’s 320lph E85-Compatible High Flow In-Tank Fuel Pumps feature robust internal construction that is designed to withstand the low lubricity characteristics of ethanol and methanol fuels, and are tested to work with ethanol fuels up to E100, methanol fuels up to M100 and all types of gasoline. This physical size of this fuel pump makes it a great replacement for the 2000-’09 Honda S2000, 2000-’05 Honda Civic, 1992-’01 Acura Integra, 2002-’06 Acura RSX, 2002-’15 Mitsubishi Evo, 2002-’07 Subaru WRX, 2013-’15 Subaru BRZ, 2013-’15 Scion FRS and many other popular enthusiast applications (NOTE:The plug wiring may need to be updated for some applications). Its compact, short body design (65mm length) with mounting hooks also makes it ideal in universal applications that have fuel tanks with tight tolerances.

Injector Dynamics EVO X Fuel Injectors

Size

Price includes Priority shipping to the lower 48 states.

The ID 1050 cc injectors are our best choice for the EVO X using a stock turbo running a dual map or flex fuel tune with 91 octane gasoline and E85 Ethanol. They are also appropriate for a basic stock frame upgraded turbo running on 91 octane gasoline only. Not enough flow in these to rock a big turbo and E85. For that you would need the 1300 or 1700 ID injectors.

We only sell them with the PNP Adapter harnesses for ease of installation. These ID 1050s are the most trouble free, smoothest running, consistent flow and with a bone-head proof installation. ID 1050s for the 2008-2015 EVO X and 2009-2015 RalliArt are $480 for the set of four. This includes the PNP adapters and USPS Priority 2-3 Day Shipping.

Additional Info from Injector Dynamics:

The ID1050x is the evolution of the ID1000, and the latest addition to the X-Series. It is the most recent offering from the partnership of Injector Dynamics and Bosch Motorsport, and is the result of lessons learned during development of the ID1300x, and ID1700x.

Like the ID1300x and ID1700x, the ID1050x is not a modified production component. It is a built to spec motorsport injector, offering optimization of critical operating parameters important to you, the motorsport tuner.

Compared to the original ID1000, the ID1050x offers numerous improvements, and is sure to become the new reference.

ID 1300s would be for a guy running a built motor on E-85 with a big turbo up to right at 500-550 whp on E-85 and these will still idle and drive smooth on pump gas. These are the Bosch Motorsports based injectors and will run with any conceivable fuel. Price includes the PNP adapters.

ID 1700s are for guys running E-85 and aspirations of 550 whp and up to mid 700s whp with sufficient fuel pressure. With these 1700s, the car will still run on gasoline but dont expect anything smooth.  These are the Bosch Motorsports based injectors and will run with any conceivable fuel. Price includes the EVO X PNP adapters
