    So, I got sick of the SS so I went and bought myself an Evo last weekend...

    Lots of work done, it's goat a 2.3L stroked 4G63, GTX35R turbo, 6boost manifold, 3" exhaust, making 450hp @ 16psi and 608hp @ 34psi - at all 4 wheels kids..

    whole interior has been re-done in cream leather, bloody amps and subs everywhere as well!


    All I really know for now is it goes like a cut snake and grips like **** to a blanket...


    Also, if anyone's after a VZ SS turbo ute please let me know!

    Yep, the little module lives in the glove box. I just have it on soft and cruise around and it's fantastic.

    I love the wheels and the exhaust is one of those varex cannons so I don't see anything changing any time soon, only thing I'm touching is the diff and transfer case.

    Evo's are fast as even when they're stock, you crazy bastard. Must be ridiculous at 34 psi. Nice one mate! Haha

    Ps: I demand a 1/4 mile time!

    Had a race against a new VF GTS today - absolutely destroyed it!
    Once the new transfer case rocks up I'll be taking it to the frags

    Must be good to drive a car with power and actual traction.

    It gets traction, but no where near as much as this thing!

    It will once I put the new transfer in it - I've been warned it's only a matter of time before it packs it in...
