Ralliart / Evo X Inline Fuel Filter | Consider the Benefits of an Inline Filter!

The MAP Evolution X and Ralliart Inline Fuel Filter is a MUST for Protecting Your Vehicles Fuel Injectors and Engine.

MAPerformance 1053whp 721wtq Stock Ecu Evo 8

After three separate 1-2 hour dyno sessions (customer cars come first and late night tuning is not looked upon kindly around here) we have reached a power level that we feel will be adequate as we continue our quest for an 8 second pass in our 3000lb street legal Evo 8. In the process we have set the bar pretty high for the stock ECU horsepower record I realize that some of the information below is identical to that of our previous post, but we simply cannot say enough about the stock ECU developers and our sponsors that made this a reality!
