United Kingdom based Owen Developments are renowned for their innovative
development of turbocharger and high performance engine technologies. Since the
mid-eighties part of their expertise has been to rebuild and blueprint
turbochargers for both fast road and motorsport competition cars.
Now Owen Developments are launching their Mitsubishi Evo Big Power Kit suitable for all Lancer Evolutions ranging from series 4 to 9 which have already had the FQ400 engine modifications.
The latest power boost kit, gives up to 511 bhp at 7,100 rpm and 426 lb-ft of torque at 5,219 rpm.
By designing a new inlet manifold Owen Developments can now use the latest remote wastegated GT30 range of Garrett high performance ball bearing turbochargers. Having a remote wastegate allows for a more efficient turbine housing which in turn provides more boost and less ‘turbo-lag’.
The new Big Power Kits can provide between 405 and 511 bhp depending on the customer’s requirements.
Brian Owen, managing director, said, "Customers wanting our new Big Power Kit must make sure their Lancer Evolution engine has already been significantly modified to FQ400 specification. At this stage we cannot talk about what price these new kits will be because that will depend upon the specification and condition of the engine. In every case we need customers to talk to us directly so we can discuss with them what specification their Evolution engine is and what specification Evo Big Power Kit we need to supply."
