A beast has awoken…
The Anhultz Mimas is a great little car, with nice handling, a good ol’ 6 speed manual, and a chassis mounted spoiler. What’s missing? Guts.
We at Watermelon Tuning House are here to change that.
With 3 stages of engine/transmission tune and suspension/tire packages, you can get the perfect custom setup for the road or track.
The Stage I tune offers a mild performance increase for a great price, less than $2000! With more boost (11 PSI), higher compression (10.2:1), and modified cam profile and ignition timing, the Stage I tune offers fully 183 HP at 6200 RPM and 183 lb-ft of torque at 4500 RPM, with the turbo fully spooled at 2700 RPM to allow comfortable daily driving. It revs up to a 400 higher redline of 7000 RPM and runs on 93 AKI pump fuel. As far as transmission, it has a shorter final drive which eliminates the overdrive gear and a short-throw shifter.
The Stage II tune offers a more heavy-duty performance with capability with room for extra tuning thanks to overengineering. Boost is increased to 18.9 PSI, a performance-spec intake is added, and it gets a larger turbo, upping power to 261 HP at 6900 RPM and torque to 241 lb-ft at 5100 RPM. All these changes are possible thanks to brand-new forged pistons and connecting rods, allowing for 600 lb-ft of torque and 8500 RPM if one were so compelled to add such ;). Our Stage II wheel and tire package is a recommended pairing, with sports compound tires 225/245mm in width.
So, you’ve reached the upper level of tuning that’s possible before feeling guilty selling it to clients because of unreliability. What’s next? 50% more cylinders sounds pretty great. Though it has the same bore/stroke as the I4, well… this Inline 6 is a different experience. The 2.7L aluminum block also features a 5v aluminum head, allowing for a 7800 RPM redline. in combination with 23 PSI of boost, a huge turbo, and… yeah pretty much is everything is new, what matters is you have 440 HP at 6700 RPM and 410 lb-ft of torque at 5000 RPM. The Stage III package also requires the wheel/tire package, including 275mm rear tires and ESC. We don’t want you to die on us now.
You’re probably tired of all the fluff and just care about what I actually submitted, so here’s that:
Track Pack Special (AKA Stage 1.5):
If you’re looking for a quick and easy track experience, with the great platform of the Mimas but the power of a real track car, look no further. The stock 4v head is replaced with a 5v head, allowing a sky-high 8200 RPM out of this turbocharged engine. It reaches 240 HP at 7600 RPM and 210 lb-ft of torque at 5100 RPM, thanks to race fuel, higher compression, higher boost, individual throttle bodies, and and much higher cam profile. It is also gifted a much shorter final drive and longer gears, allowing the perfect balance of speed and acceleration. This package is available for $7800.
