    All I can say is WOW! ANg pogi nya!

    north-south engine orientation means the usual horizontal 4g63T was turned 90 degrees... similar to RWD engine cars... check nyo ung pix
    btw got it from evolutionM.net

    Kumakubo's brand new D1 drift machine - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 (IX) was finally unveiled and made its debut run at Round 5 of the 2007 D1 grand prix series at Ebisu

    Lancer Evolution 9 D1 drift machine driven by Team Orange's front man Kumakubo Nobushige. As you can see in this picture the 500+hp 4G63 turbo engine is installed north-south like conventional rear wheel drive cars and not east-west how Lancers originally come from the factory.

    Kumakubo qualifed in the Best 16 and made it through the first round but was knocked out after he missed a gear shift on one of his runs. He said the cause was a stuck clutch. The clutch pedal didn't come up - The painful woes of a new drift car.

    Kumakubo said he wanted to change to a Lancer after he was a stunt driver in this years Hollywood movie Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo Drift and liked the way the Lancer Evo handled and moved.
    Hope may production models nito! Im salivating!









    AFAIK, guys from mymitsuph are planning to do the same. Sana it will be a success!

    I wonder why the stock Evos didn't come with the longitudinal engine instead?
