Skunk2 Mitsubishi EVO VII-IX Composite Fuel Rail
MotoIQ Staff Report
The first-ever composite fuel rail for Mitsubishi’s Evo VII-IX is here. Skunk2’s Composite Fuel Rails are made using a proprietary carbon-impregnated, aerospace thermo-polymer composite—a material that’s 33-percent lighter and 60-percent stronger than aluminum. Skunk2's composite material insulates fuel from both radiant and conductive heat transfer underneath the hood, resulting in more horsepower and torque. The composite material has ultra low thermo conductivity so underhood heat is not transfered to the fuel resulting in fuel temps up to 100-degrees F cooler when compared to aluminum. This results in denser fuel and greatly reduces the chances of vapor lock, crfitical when volitile running fuels with a high alcohol content.
Skunk2's Composite Fuel Rail also features a large 0.625-inch internal bore for superior fuel injector pulsation dampening and supply, even for high powered engines runing fuels such as methanol. The fuel rail's bore is machined with a smooth interior finish, and features radius-cut fuel injector outlets for improved flow characteristics. The special design that eliminates the sharp internal angles where the main bore meets the fuel injector bores inherent with conventional extruded- and drilled-aluminum designs can only be achieved with such composite materials. Skunk2’s Evo Composite Fuel Rails are compatible with the factory fuel lines and fuel regulator and can support up to 1,200 hp, with power gains as high as three percent realized during testing.
