Fast Facts:
  • The MR is the top-of-the-line Evo, and includes a close ratio 6spd manual (other Evo’s get a 5spd), Bilstein shocks in the front, forged lightweight BBS wheels, vortex generators, and HID headlights. Road test editors praise the Bilsteins, saying they ride slightly nicer and soften impacts better than past Evos
  • The MR also gets a lightweight aluminum roof (in addition to the standard aluminum hood and fenders). While the roof only saves 8.8 lbs, it lowers the MR’s center of gravity by 3 mm. By comparison, the steel roof on other Evos would have to be lowered an entire 2″ to achieve the equivalent center of gravity
  • The Evolution’s signature handling can be attributed to the proving grounds used to develop the car, which includes a 50 MPH jump, a plethora of chicanes, and both increasing and decreasing radius corners
  • The Evo’s 4G63 engine has always been underrated thanks to the Japanese “Gentlemen’s Agreement” limiting advertised horsepower numbers. In reality, Evo 9’s put down about 250whp on the dyno
  • With the introduction of the Evo 9 in 2006, the 4G63 engine sees a slight hp and torque increase. The torque boost is the result of new MIVEC variable valve-timing (the first ever for the 4G63), and the horsepower boost is from a larger and more direct turbo compressor housing outlet
  • The new VVT adds power down low where the Evo needed it most – before the turbo kicked in. It’s no longer lethargic before 3500 RPM, and turbo lag is reduced by 5% thanks to the new compressor housing. The overall power curve is more linear, softening the transition to 20.2 lbs of boost @ around 3500 RPM
  • On U.S-spec Evos, the ECU implements a 5000 RPM rev limiter when launching from a standstill. This isn’t some form of launch control – it can actually hurt 0-60 times according to a period road test. Development engineers say this feature protects the front differential pinion from sudden drivetrain shock. This limiter isn’t found on Japanese-spec Evos because their factory tires (which are more slippery) allow adequate wheelspin during a hard launch. The stickier U.S-spec tires, on the other hand, have enough grip to risk overloading the pinion if the launch is aggressive enough
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First and only year of the Evo IX (9th generation)
  • Final year of the legendary 4G63 engine, giving way to the 4B11T of the Evo X
  • First and only year of MIVEC variable valve timing (4G63), giving a slight power rating increase
  • Other engine revisions include colder spark plugs (longer threads), and a more durable timing belt material. A redesigned oil ring reduces oil consumption, and a revised engine cover is less sensitive to heat
  • Redesigned front bumpers feature oval openings to direct fresh air to the intercooler piping
  • Headlights and taillights now have a smoked mirror finish
  • New lighter wheels with newly available black Diamond Finish
  • The 5spd gets new gear ratios for first, third, fourth, and fifth gears
  • New Alcantara Recaro seats with available red stitching
  • New black painted MOMO steering wheel
  • New titanium/carbon dash trim and aluminum pedals
  • Suede and leather replace cloth on certain interior parts
