    I sold the commodore a while ago and wanted something different. So a couple months ago I found this evo for sale.

    With 150 000kms on the clock and 330 hp at the wheels, it seemed to be in good nick. From what I can see, it has had the intake and exhaust upgraded with a 19psi boost on the factory turbo.

    So far I have replaced the old faded leather gear knob, cd player to a Sony 2din with nav etc., re cleared the spoiler which was the only bad spot on the exterior. Replaced all the oils and fluids.

    I would like to get a filter box, currently looking at the Apexi filter/aluminum box combo. Possibly move the add on boost gauge but not sure where to put it yet. Maybe in the future do some power mods.

    Looks like it should be some fun.

    Be careful, they might think it is one of their vehicles and not let you take it home :p

    Oh what makes you say that? haha

    Love it, handling is so much smoother, turbo is pretty awesome too. Don't really like the lag haha.

    Clay bar and 3 stage polish by Mothers. Bloody Brilliant.

    Probably because of the yellow - RAC colour haha. Stock turbo when's it hit full boost?
    I loved the turbo lag in my 180sx, the new MPS hits full boost at 2.5k so it's a little baby turbo and doesn't hit quite hard enough for my liking, but it's nice to have another AWD Turbo on the forum ;)

    Really ? I thought you were being sarcastic when you first questioned it.

    Update time, not sure if anyone on here since the last time I posted. I have rarely driven it but I have recently done some stuff.

    Firstly, I changed the radio because I wanted an android to run the Torque app and a few other things. Oh yeah that reminds me, I need to ask them if they can have an option to change the mph to km/h and Fahrenheit to Celsius, it's a little iffy but.

    [​IMG]

    Headlight upgrade to LED which is currently on pause because Phillips website told me 9005 and 9006 which is actually H1 & HB3 -.-. Oh and front brace.

    [​IMG]

    Carbon rear roof fins. I was worried about this one because I don't like alot of carbon on the car. But I think it matches with the spoiler. I really would like to get carbon front lip too.

    Rear Strut Brace

    Hopefully I can have it on the track by the end of this year.
