Mitsubishi Mirage Project, Part 3

Injen Designs a Cold-Air Intake for Our Project Mirage

Bryn MacKinnon
Apr 1, 2000

We now return to our regularly scheduled Project Mirage story. The last time we saw the Mirage, it had been given a nice low stance and a brand-new set of shoes courtesy of Eibach, Kosoku, Yokohama, and Savas. And now it's back this month for more Mirage-y madness. What's next? It's what every car needs: loads and more loads of nice cool air. It's a cold-air intake!

We searched around and couldn't find one in existence, so the nice fellas at Injen Technology in Pomona, California, said, "Come on over, and we'll fabricate one for ya." They're cool like that. So we scooted our way to their facility, and they put their thinking caps on, pulled out their measuring devices, and came up with a cold-air intake for our little two-door Project Mirage. They caution that, because of its position in the engine compartment, the intake should only be used during dry summer months. But luckily for you, if you don't happen to live on the Sahara, Injen has also developed a shorter intake so your non-turbocharged '98-and-up Mirage can benefit from the technology the aftermarket has to offer when it's raining outside, too. Injen has both intakes available in complete kits with detailed instructions. We thought we'd show you the very first installation of the cold-air intake ever (space didn't allow for us to include the shorter one, too, but it's basically the same without the battery removal). Check it out.
