    damn. Props to both of the badass Evos in this thread. It must be fun to jump up and surprise the shit out of a badass domestic owner. a 450 rwhp Cobra is a quick car, and not one that is likely to be beaten in months of just driving around out on the street. One hell of a coincidence that you ran into something the same day you got it dynoed.

    And the Evo will run like that In The Rain!

    I really like Evos, much more than Scoobies.

    But even though they may be fast, they just don't sound like a V8.

    Unless you swap an LS1 into one....ran across that once or twice on YouTube, pretty cool mix

    More like idiotic. Keep lsx motors where they belong, in RWD vehicles.

    Yeah I know pump gas, if I remember correctly, there is a high octane pump right down the road from his shop. I think its 100 octane or 110. Cant remember.

    I go to Dragway 42d for test and tune as well, of course I would be the one still sitting at the tree as he runs a 9 lol. I used to know a few guys that had DSMs who had that shop worked on them. Lost touch with those guys though...

    I have to admit 10k in alot of performance cars will make a huge difference, one thing though is this car makes up alot of its e.t in its first 60ft due to 4 wheel drive. If this was a RWD car with the same power and weight you'd have to dump alot of money into it to get it to hook up, just putting on slicks aint gonna do it. I do like evo's though, if you take the time to really look at the car the fenders, rear and front bumpers and the hood the car starts to stick out more. Stock form unless your racing off the line the LS1 will easily have it beat but everything else the Evo takes it, with a few mods its easy to pick up Hp with the evo as well.

    30k in an evo is like this


    That car has a hell of a lot more than $30,000 in it. By the time you add everything up its got to be close to double that number. You don't build an all out race car on $30,000, not happening. Those cars are not cheap to built in the least, everything is expensive, its a mitsubitchi.

    I don't know who you're trying to fool, but you're only fooling yourself if you honestly believe that.

    My thoughts also I thought $30,000 was a low # but after a little more research it is a low #, thanks for the back up!

    It's 94 Octane. I can get this same gas at Sunoco right down the street. The car runs an fs635 Turbo Kit.

    stage 3 short block - 3k

    stage 3 head - 1600

    Tilton Carbon/Carbon - 4500

    fs365 kit - 4500

    AEM - 2k
    Fuel/Ignition - 2k


    There's the majority of what the car has in it. This car is NOT a race car, it is not prepped nor is it even safe for the ET/Trap it's running. He should not even be aloud to run there in that condition. The fact remains that Dave has said time and time again that he daily drives this car.



    Here you can buy an 8 second e-85 powered car for 45k total lol.
