Default Evo IX project thread

Guess it's about time I make a project thread since I'll be modding this summer. I realize it isn't anything particularly special at the moment, but well see where it goes.

To start out, here is how it sets:

2006 Evo IX SE

Mods:
GReddy Evo 2 catback & downpipe
K&N Filter
Boost controller
Walbro 255
MR bilsteins and swift springs
and a tune

305whp on CBRD's Mustang Dyno

Here is when I got it:


Here is what it looked like up until last week:


Here is what I picked up for it last week:


And here is what it looks like now:

Not really. They do have they're "dsm" problems but hold up pretty well. Many stock block evos in the mid 400' hp range.

Main problem areas on evos are the transfer cases and the 6 speed transmissions have some issues. The 5 speed is fairly strong though. The motor itself is pretty tough as well.

I liked the style, I just wish they were an inch bigger and at least a half inch wider. Evo's just don't look right with a lot of sidewall showing. Overall though, I like the new wheels way better.
