"After every Evo MR400 is finally re-assembled it comes to our four wheel drive rolling road facility at our headquarters for final re-mapping of the ECU for optimum performance before it is delivered by Mitsubishi to the customer. We are involved from start to finish. So to get this message across to the industry and customers we will be showing at Autosport International various components designed and manufactured by ourselves which will include our unique 450bhp Evo Turbo kit".
"We hope that our prototype turbocharger for the Subaru will be available in time to make its debut at the show giving our customers a valuable insight into our Subaru upgrade programme to be introduced in 2005. Because of our achievements with the Lancer Evolution, we have received many requests from Subaru customers to provide something similar and we have again been asked to develop 400+bhp power upgrades. We are initially planning to introduce early next year, two performance upgrade packages, a 350 and 400 bhp for 2002 year onwards Impreza models" said Owen.
