Hey all,


I'd like some help with classing my 2003 Evo VIII.

Here locally, they throw all the NX- R/U/S into one class. However, I'd like to know if I'm in R, U or S just in case I attend an NASA event somewhere else this year.

Here are my mods: I tried listing the additional points. Please correct anything that is wrong to help me figure this out once and for all! :D



Here are my mods this year that will add points from what I see:
Lancer Evo VIII ('03-'05)(AWD) NXC** 3263 +14?

Buschur Racing Intake +1
Ported/coated stock turbo exhaust manifold +2
Buschur Racing turbo-back exhaust (with testpipe 3") +2
Forge MBC +4
Walbro fuel pump/FIC 950 injectors +2
BC coilovers (<$900) +5
RobiSpec Rear Anti-Sway bar +2
Hankook Z214 tires (245/40/17) +10
Removal of trunk carpeting +1


Do these two mods add points or not then?
1) ('06) OEM Mitsubishi Evolution IX turbo swapped in for my old VIII turbo.

2) Aftermarket 02 housing (coated/ported)

3) Stock Ecu tuned via ecuflash/laptop.

Any concrete answers/help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys!

If you don't have the OEM model turbo for your year, I believe you need dyno classed.

I know your car is an 03 that sits in C** base class. You might be able to adopt the 06 B base class and call it a day.

Unless you are running in Novice class... yes.

"In the event that a “large part swap” has occurred between the competing vehicle and a donor vehicle of the same model type in a higher base class, and the swap has resulted in a very large points assessment that would place the competing vehicle at a higher classification level than the donor vehicle, the competing vehicle may jump base classifications up to the donor car’s base class, and not take the points assessment for any parts identical to the donor car."

Would this be possible with the 9 turbo. While this is not a "large part swap" I am running into the same issues that are mentioned above.
The Evo 9 turbo only provides a marginal advantage over the EVO 8 turbo. My understanding is that the spirit of this turbo swap rule is for people swapping out for turbos capable of producing significantly more power GT30, GT35 etc... This is a factory turbo. Can I class my car as an EVO 9MR as stated above? I would need you approval, correct Jon? Shall I submit a seperate request in writing?



base class nsb
Modification points

forced induction 5
skinny tires -4
rear bumper 1
cams/cam gears 6
air intake pipe 1
intercooler 4
fuel pump/injectors 2
alc/water injection 6
exhaust header 2
exhuast 2
high flow cat 1
springs 2
boost control 4
EVO9 Turbo up-class* 7

TOTAL 39






Thanks guys!
