A stock Airtrek turbo engine is essentially an Evo engine, not the latest version, but it shares a lot of internals from Evo 4 & 5. If not mistaken, it also has the same 8.8:1 compression ratio as Evo 4-9. I guess Mitsubishi realized they had a lot parts laying around in their parts bin, over manufactured, surplus, what to do..... rojak them together & come up with a brand new car using old surplus parts....heheee
FYI, Airtrek turbo uses Evo5 con rod & pistons.
