  3. Coming to the end of the year, we have some stock that we are looking to move and have reduced prices! Boostin' Juice Performance 3" split dump pipe for Evo X stock frame turbos. Proven to make a lot of power over the stock units and even gains over other open mouth brands. Lighter than stock (almost half the weight) and they all come ceramic coated to help keep bay temps a little lower. Usually $799, NOW $730. Here is a stock turbo e85 result with our split dump and test pipe: https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FBoostinJuiceTuningSydney%2Fposts%2F1764861213725612 MAP cast manifold - Evo X stock frame. These are one of the best manifolds available for the Evo x, with big gains over stock in both spool and power throughout the rev range. This is an easy upgrade when you are changing turbos. These also are not prone to cracking like the stock ones and they fit under stock heatshield! Usually $980, NOW $920. AEM Wideband UEGO. Everybody knows these are awesome and we have a whole bunch in stock at great pricing! Get a hold of your AFR's and know what your car is actually doing. This is the first modification we recommend to all customers. Usually $330, NOW $270! AEM Boost Gauge (30psi max). Keep an eye on boost with these tidy units. Usually $265, NOW $220. Boostin' Juice Performance 100 cell high flow cat for Evo X. Straight bolt in. Comes painted flame proof black and has a single rear O2 bung (option for adding another bung - $30). NOW $300 Boostin' Juice Performance test pipe for Evo X. Straight bolt in. Comes painted flame proof black and has a single rear O2 bung (option for adding another bung - $30). NOW $200
  4. Now I wouldn't call this a modification, but a customer of ours brought his car in with what we suspected was a head gasket issue - oil was milky and it was pushing coolant on boost. What we actually found was even worse. Check out the picture. Not only was a nut and washer left off a cylinder 1 head stud, all studs around cylinder 4 were not even finger tight in the block. The head is toast and the block needs to be checked for warping too. Customer was not happy to say the least...

  7. Thought I'd start a thread with some photos of weird shit and just general funny "modifications" we've found on cars over time. Here's an "upgraded" fuel pump assembly we found in a customers car. Said it was making a rattling sound sometimes when cornering... Fixed unit on the right. Yes the original was snap tied in a million different ways.
  8. Now I know a lot of people believe these twin clutch gearboxes are as fragile as glass, but this is not completely true. In theory, the gearset and gearbox casings are extremely tough and should be able to handle up to 1000hp with no need for upgrades. However, there are other areas of the gearbox which leave a lot to be desired. I will go into further detail regarding these areas in other topics, but here I will discuss some of the issues associated with the Mechatronics unit, or more specifically - the valve body. As with all automatic gearboxes, the TC-SST uses a fluid control system to move clutches, shift forks and cooling fluid to the clutches. When the valve has problems, it can catastrophically effect the operation of the gearbox and cause multiple other parts failures inside the box. The valve body core itself is of cast aluminium construction, machined to create the bores and surfaces on the unit. The bores contain valves that are operated by electronic solenoids on the TCU half of the Mechatronics unit and these valves are machined hardened steel. Issues arise when material becomes caught between the valve and the bore, which has the ability to either damage the soft aluminium bore - causing leakage - or jamming the valve in the bore which causes a whole host of other issues depending on the particular valve in question. Maintenance is a huge factor in lifespan of valve bodies, as reducing the chance of damage to the valve body from stray materials will obviously statistically reduce the chances of valve body failure. For this reason we recommend changing the fluid and filter every 20-30k km maximum for street cars and 2.5-10k km for hard driven cars or race cars. We had a car come in that we had performed a build for, including a 10 plate custom clutch setup and Kozmic reconditioned shift fork 4 - however we had found no reason to modify or replace the existing valve body as it was performing well and holding pressure prior to the build. The car drove well for a period of time before the owner contacted us and advised us that the car had become almost undrivable and lost even gears. We knew the shift fork was not responsible for this, so we received the car and began testing the valve body for failure. It became apparent that a valve had become stuck, causing the car to lose even gears - but more concerning was that the valve we found stuck was also causing the odd clutches to not properly disengage. The car was driving in 6th at 110kmh on the highway when the failure occurred - thrashing the car did not cause this failure. As you can imagine - having the odd clutches partially engaged while the car is in 6th causes significant heat and will eventually destroy the odd clutches. Here is a photo of the Mechatronics unit complete prior to inspection: Here is a photo of the valve body completely disassembled for inspection, including valve removal: We had removed the entire gearbox in anticipation of finding destroyed clutches, and boy did we ever. The even clutches remained in perfect condition, however, the same cannot be said about the odd clutches.... I'll let the photos speak for themselves: We have seen many, many different failures from Mechatronics units and I will endeavor to keep this thread updated with the different failures we have found over the years. If you have any requirements for your Evo X, whether it be a manual or SST, feel free to contact us anytime to see what we can do for you!

  9. Hi guys and girls! Some of you already know us and what we do. Here's a little intro and history for those who don't know. I've personally been a part of this forum for a while and ventured into starting my own business on the Evo platform back in 2014 and we were lucky enough to secure an awesome shop at the end of 2015. The business has since spread out a little into other Mitsubishi's and older evo's too, but our primary platform remains the CZ/CY/CX. We do all major work including tuning on Ralliart Colt, Pajero and Triton models too. We have very close business relationships with a number of shops in the USA, including ETS, MAP and Kozmic, being our sister shop. We are Australia's only licensed installer and distributor for all Kozmic products and had the privilege of being invited to the USA by David and Eric for a one on one technical conference for all things twin clutch. Needless to say we have picked up a whole host of tricks and secrets on our 12 day stay with Kozmic. Here are a few photos of what's been happening recently at Boostin' Juice Performance and we will be keeping you updated on what's in store for the future!
