(Mirage1) 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage LS
live in Phoenix, Arizona, USA and am the original owner.
The car really doesn't have any major modifications yet.
is my best 1/4 mile time:
10.466 @ 67.8MPH
15.839 @ 86.043MPH
I raced at SpeedWorld Raceway in Northwest Phoenix.
The altitude is about 1300' and it was about 65 degrees.
started by switching to Castrol Syntec 5-50 Synthetic oil after
a K & N airfilter, removed extra intake ducting, and enlarged
to Mobil 1 0-30 Synthetic oil. This is much better oil.
some MB Motoring 15x7 wheels with 195/50 Yokohama tires.
the springs to figure out what height I want the car. Looks great.
the bump-stops to keep it from bouncing down the road. Rides great.
spark plug wires ($150!) I didn't notice $150 worth of improvement...
But they look cool.
the fog-light holes open to help cool off the brakes (the brakes
on these cars are way too small.)
coated the stock exhaust manifold and down pipe.
a custom Pro-Dyno Cat-back exhaust. Nice rumble.
the stock thermostat (180) for a 170 degree. Some shops don't
carry it. I found mine at Autozone. The car no longer looses power
once it is fully warmed up! Additional note: I believe that the
car may be running slightly rich now. This may explain the extra
to Nitto 450 Extremes. The Yokohama's were better.
out the "hot" coolant elbow, for better flow.
a front upper strut-tower bar.
