Mitsu Evo -- What are these things (capacitors?), and are they used anymore?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I have an Evo IV with the G4+ Plugin.

Could someone tell me what the object pictured is? There are two of them.

What are their function/purpose/name, and are they still used, even when stock ECU is no longer present?

Thanks.

I have never seen one of those on an evo, but yes, if it is a factory part I would leave it there.  That is most likely a suppressor on the power supply to the coils, it reduces EMI so is good to have - not only for your radio listening pleasure, but for the ecu and related electronics too.

Ok, thanks. I have 2x Evo 4, One 1996 and one later 1997 model. Both cars have them. But if you haven't seen them before -- would that mean that the newer Evos don't have them?

No, it just means I have never seen them.  As I stated before, leave it there, the EVO's have nasty ignition noise and you need every precaution to keep it at an acceptable level.
