So after much hesitation and concern I took the plunge and bought a new car....a 2005 mitsubishi evo rs....needless to say iam pumped to be back in the turbo game(atleast until I get my insurance bill).....car is gonna stay stock for a whie but then eventually get a Turbo back exhaust, intake, and a good tune, nothing crazy, I just want 300+whp ...as far as stereo Iam just gonna do alpine 9860 to some comps upfront(thinking new type r's, and a ID Oem Overstock 10 All off a ARC 4150xxk want to stay as light as possible....On to the pics!!

i debated on buying a used wrx or evo, but you just know they were beat on to hell before being traded in/sold

very nice car, Always wanted one of those.

U keeping it red?

spudracer326
04-05-2007, 03:40 PM
For now Itll stay red....for some reason mitsubishi decided to put the thinest crappiest layer of paint ever on the evos and it chips really easy...so eventually I will get it repainted and maybe pick a new color....but thats a way out....

lol they figure people will rally the hell outta it anyways, why bother having a good paint job?

I love Evos black, just something to think about :D

Is that a Pro RX65 hanging off of that glass?
If so ~ nice detector. That's what I run.



Having said that - very nice car! Certainly better than the wannabe Corolla I'm rolling! :laugh:

My Prestige has a blue LED....most reputable alarm installers have a multitudeof different color LEDs that are available as options over whatever color came stock with your system.
LED color is no longer a good indicator of alarm brand :fyi:

Why yes it is a rx65....good eye!! plan on picking up the laser jammer(not sure on model number) that can be integrted in for a little more protection as well....should be a good defense setup....not that I would need it :laugh:

Yeah they do...but on the stock tranny and transfer case and clutch I am leary to launch....untill I get english racing to build the trans and tc Iam a pu$$y when it comes to launching...


And I agree that a tune is the most important thing to making power in a turbo car....balancing ;the motor however is quite expensive(think complete motor rebuild, minus new parts)

All I gotta say is CHANGE THE CLUTCH! Before any new power mods get a new clutch in there cause I've heard nothing but horrible things about the stock one. Turbo magazine showed pictures of a stock evo clutch after about 2000 miles that looks like it had been through a nuclear blast.

Anyways, good luck with the car. I love the evo, one of my favorites.

I agree the stock clutch does **** by I have buddie running 669whp on the stock clutch for a few weeks now with no slipping......Just CANT launch on the stocker and itll be fine....for a while:cool: When the time comes for a clutch I plan on getting the trans built as well and possibly the transfer case....Two other weak links in the evo...

nothings funnier than watching an awd car on slicks tear its transfer case to pieces doing launches.

bleh, its neat but i'd just get so bored.

if i had a car like that, i'd build it up for 5-600hp, run 375-400 and then spend my monies on suspension, brakes, tires (lots of them), and lightening and balancing engine internals. i want a very free revving curve cruncher.

i'd love to take a s2k and swap in the v8 they made with the heads from a hayabusa. 2.8l v8 with almost 400hp and a 10k redline. i'm sure it doesn't have that much torque but its not an incredibly heavy car anyway.

spudracer326
04-20-2007, 06:08 PM
s2000's are really cool....and I plan on at most building to 400 hp...any more and it gets **** near unstreatable(unsprung clutch ftl)....first is clutch and drive train...then brakes(new pads and rotors and lines) and suspension(heavier rear sway bar, coilovers and braces)....then Ill go onto motor stuff...I had lanned on doing it all kinda tthe opposite but for now its fast enough...

It doesnt do too bad in the corners either, but its not awd. Quarter mile is closer to 12.8 or so with new intercooler, but havent been to the track yet.

yeah awd is a huge asset for the twistys...I would guess when Im done ill run low 11"s thorugh the 1/4...once again thanks to awd!!

i like the evo RS the most out of all of the evos...

speakin of s2ks, although its almost anithetical, i've seen several reliably boosted ones around here pushing over 400 rwhp and they definitely are capable of giving turbo'd z33's, evo's and sti's trouble!
