    Evo killed me

    Last night I raced a silver Evo VIII. Thing has cams, upgraded turbo, TBE, tuned, all the goodies to make them fast. He took off from a 25 roll I want to say, put a length on me right away, then 2 lengths, lets off around 70 because he was keeping the lead, and I did not want a ticket. Badass car for sure. My first loss. Did not mind at all the owner is a cool guy.

    Eww that sux!! .. If you can drive your car should be running 12.5-12.9s so that evo must have moved out quite well.

    I haven't run it yet myself but the orginal owner ran a 12.5 before i bought it. I can drive decently well as well. People tell me this Evo runs mid 11's. Oh well. Maybe once i get my H&C package I'll give him another go.

    Not a bad race. I used to have a STi so I know about the Evo's also. Since it was only a evo 8 with TBE and cam a decent tune would put them around 300whp. Then you add a turbo to that (probably a 18g or 20g) and you have a fast evo. At least you didn't race off the line...

    Evos are far better than STIs, the sti motor is harder to work on than a ls1 in a f-body lol

    Yeah I have a friend that drives a STI and I beat him fairly easy. I have raced other Evo's and stuck it to them before but this one was different. Gotta give the guy props for the car.

    Evos will not take our cars unless they are cammed or have a big turbo end of story, with both they can be really fast.

    Yea they will. All Evo's need is a tune and a few other little things for them to get deep in the 12's, its easy and def doesnt take cams or a different turbo, search around there's plenty doing it, although they are much better from a dig than a role until they get more mods. There's no sham in getting beat by that car with you having bolt ons

    Not sure how much of a difference between the Evo and the STi are (2006 model year) but I do know the STi that lives down the street is already on my kill list. Close race but I still won. Mind you it wasn't from a dig, if it was he probably would have eaten me alive. The bitch is ever since then I've been doing nothing but appearance mods while he's been upgrading the exhaust and motor

    18g isn't a turbo used on Evo's. I realize it's a Mitsubishi turbo but it spins the wrong direction to be an upgrade, and if you are forced to upgrade the manifold, everyone goes with something better then an 18g. The 20g's that you hear about for the Evo aren't a "true" 20g turbo, they're a custom compressor wheel in a stock turbo, with possibly an upgraded turbine wheel (I'm a little out of the loop).

    He was probably running something close to a gt30r from the sounds of the race....possibly a 35r on pump gas. Mid 11 second car is no joke, especially considering he has the grip on the street.

    I found out that this Evo was built right near me and is local so thats cool. It is an 11 second car without the spray.

    Stock evos from a roll are weak, a 3300lbs car making 220-230whp to the ground aint really doin much against a 3500lbs car with 340rwhp. But once you start with cams and supporting mods its a different story. Then add a huge turbo and you have a low 11 second street car. The only problem is msot of my friends who have had them get bored with them fast.

    Are you kidding me 20lbs of boost out of the factory and they suck from a roll lmao....My friend has a pretty much stock 2006 evo and from a stop he got me out of the hole up till like 15 then I pulled him but from a 20 roll he took me by a car. Dig= low boost and turbo lag....Roll= High boost and no turbo lag do the math....
