I get about 400km per tank, but I NEVER drive the car without a/c, and I admit I floor the gas fairly often with my 2.0. (I'm trying to gauge how badly off my fuel consumption is).

Any other 2.0 owners feel free to share your input as well on this...



It's main roads so a lot of stop and go compared to highway drives. Btw how old is your GT. Do you service your throttle body, maf and egr valve?
Also I use a k&n drop in filter.

For a daily driver the GT is lots of fun. the fortis feel like a sloopy (same suspension as the 1.5 , 1.6) mamoo (detuned 2.0) 1.6. The steering also gives less feedback guess it's because the GT has rigid collars to mate the subframe to the body, the fortis does not.
I have owned the CY2A 1.5 (new), galant fortis (f/used) and now the GT (new)
My advise is if you can't afford the GT new check Carmax for a used one before considering a fortis.
Why not an Evo x ? For me the Evo would be a project car, you don't project your daily driver imho. I currently get with the GT over 500km to a tank which is $140 to fill up.
Why I sold my rrm turbo kit? Reminded myself it's not a project car, I rearly use the highway, don't need it plus a search on the iterwebs will reveal all is not well with the kit, despite rrm claims that customers have over 70000km running daily on their kit.
Intake, exhaust, cams etc and you can easily see 200hp n/a
I know I gave a lot of info here and some are vague ( sorry but some abuse the free info I share) so Que the 25 plus daily PM's.
wow thanks for summing it up. About Carmax vehicles though I saw most of them with badly done body job repairs and their prices are still so high. Oh well ck4 lancer for it.


Agreed. The dm body shop does crappy work. But that can fix. The ck I loved the most till I got a cy.

Thanks. It's a 2008.

I serviced the TB and MAF in November last year, as well as the drop-in K&N. But that was my first attempt at it, so it may not have been perfect.

The car sees daily use, and is probably in Chaguanas to Barataria rush hour traffic 2 or 3 days a week (both mornings and evenings), and occasional use on weekends (again all with a/c).

I've never cleaned the EGR though - will do some research into that. Also when I cleaned the TB, I just cleaned the area around the throttle plate. I did notice when the plate was open that inside the intake manifold was very dirty, but I wasn't comfortable spraying cleaner into it.

I wanted to buy mines from CarMax but my mine was made up when I was able to get a fortis with very low milage (almost new) and good features. CarMax GT's have too many dents and scratches for 140K. I got my fortis for 120K with full kit, controls on steering,sunroof etc.
But the local GT's do drive better, wish I could afford one. But I thick Diamond Motors gonna stop bringing the 1.6 lancer and only focus on the GT's.

Are you sure the GT comes with rigid collars as standard? Have you checked this on your car?

Can't see why they would put on a GT standard and not an evo.

Also the Galant Fortis which looks just like a GT also seems to drive like a GT except the speed cut.

I had a Galant Fortis "GT" and found it to drive just like a local GT. had the same brakes wheels and interior as a GT. only problem was the speed cut.

Also came with a lot more features.

Shocked they install rigid collars at the factory, as it will slow production.

I installed a set on my X, can't say the steering response has increased, however sharp undulations( like a recent wasa patch work) is handled a lot better.

I'm actually searching for a set for the rear subframe.

Jus sharing some info

was in the bamboo recently looking for CY rims. African Foreign used parts says he had a container coming in and it had a set of Evo X rims in it (although i think is GT rims he mean). Called him today and he said they were unpacking the container today and that i can check him for it tomorrow (Saturday). I can't purchase those wheels right now again so hopefully one of allyuh who has been hunting for it since u get the car could get it.

He said he had a few things but i didn't ask as i didnt need anything for my interior. I noticed a CY back half (disc brakes) and a few rear suspension sets. He has a few engines and transmissions ...... but the prices though...LAWD

Just sharing some pics of the CY, not completed yet though. Hopefully, a set of coilover suspension in the future.

Hey guys, I know anytime I need help you guys are always there to offer advice. So here's the question.. Today I was doing a check on my brakes and noticed the rubber on the brake piston has a 'rip'. How easy is this to change and more importantly would this drastically affect brake performance?
