Do not underestimate any Evo on the road. A tune alone gives these cars like 80 additional hp at the wheels. Throw e85 on the stock turbo and those cars rip!

I raced an Evo X 5spd that had intake, tune, exhaust running 30 psi with my previous Mach 1 and he was right next to me 40-130.

Fast little cars but once you start modding they're gas mileage turns to crap. I was getting better mpg in my Mach than he was. :-/

Yea I agree, stupid ugly jap cars...I respect them but wouldn't own one...wait, doh

I think most of you guys run into stock ones, lol.

I will agree with gas mileage being just ok, 17mpg on E85 making 650whp, not the best. Reliability is all in the owner and setup though, but a 4 cylinder car making a lot of power is a lot harder to keep working than an LS motor.

Just figured I'd comment for fun as I check this site out every now and then for fun.

Carry on.

Stored for the winter now... I know, a AWD car stored during snow lol, but I invested too much to have it destroyed by an idiot sliding into me.

In spring I'll either bring it down to Roch with Knoxville or maybe we all can hit up the track (rock falls or BIR) and I'll see if I can't cut something decent this time

Regardless I'll give ya a ride for sure.

I hear ya, Just like Knox and you... I'm also stored for the winter. I'm hoping we can all go to Rock Falls in April when it opens. Hopefully the weather will be nice.
