330 from a 2.0 off the assembly line
From: http://www.channel4.com/apps26/4car/jsp/main.jsp?lnk=211&id=6165Mitsubishi announces Evo VIII FQ330
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII just gets quicker and quicker; replacing the special edition FQ300 (see link below) is a new model, the 330bhp, 315lb ft FQ330. FQ, by the way, is said to stand for [censored]ing Quick, and that's no joke - the FQ330, with its turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, will certainly better the FQ300's 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, though no official performance figures have been released yet.
To get an extra 30bhp, the FQ330 has a supplementary ECU hardwired to the FQ300 engine management system and a revised waste-gate actuator ferrule, which increases turbo boost at peak pressure. The new car costs from £31,999, but if you've just shelled out for a FQ300 and haven't yet modified it yourself, Mitsubishi's Ralliart dealers will upgrade FQ300s for £1500 (plus VAT). The job takes two hours and will be fully warranted. The FQ330 will be distinguished, however, by new black alcantara/leather seats and special badging; each will be individually numbered. FQ330 models will also feature standard Smart Nav satellite navigation.
Unfortunately not the assembly line, in order to get around the UK laws, the FQ models are upgraded at the dealership. But they do come with full warranty.330 from a 2.0 off the assembly line
