Here are some pictures of the
transistion in progress, All of the work has been done in my garage. This car has never been in any kind of shop since the day... Show more I bought it.
Here is picuters of the body work being done, what a mess!!! I would never do it again.
Ahhh.. the wonderful but expensive DSM Link running on my laptop
The EVO III Big 16G turbo upgrade and ported manifold o2 housing
The new Forced Performance turbo
Speaker box in progress. I tried to keep things as light weight as i could to try and retain the preformance aspects of the car.
Throttle body swap: left is the new TB from a 1g talon and right is the old TB. Notice the difference in size, 52mm vs 60mm
I made the custom endtanks and made all of the pipeing out of mandrel bends that i welded togeather. The piping ended up costing about $100 from JCW. A hell of a lot cheaper than $800 for a short route piping kit.
Here is a few pictures of the 1G head and intake manifold swap. I gasket matched both the intake and exhaust side and knife edged the dividers.
here the fresh head ready to be installed
Keydiver EPROM install (I just got rid of this and replaced it with the DSM Link)
Factory "Big Brake AWD" upgrade. I decided to go with the drilled and slotted rotors, axxis semi-metallic pads, and SS brake lines. they work great!
This is th M1 Short shifter. I added a small switch that is hooked up to my dual stage boost controller so that when i am in 1st gear the switch will be pushed and the boost controller will switch to the low setting. This helps reduce wheel spin.
This is my new water/alcohol injection system. the pump is in the spare tire compartment and it uses the window washer resivour as the supply tank. I use a mix of 50% water and 50% alcohol.

If there is one thing that i have learned from all of this, it is that horsepower is a fu**ing drug. It keeps you wanting more and more until you are broke. Show Less
