K04 smasher.

2013 Evo X: Mods are a cat-back, high flow cat, and upper intercooler pipe on 93 octane.
My GTI's clutch was slipping with 100wtq less than this. And it actually has traction in turns and lower gears.

$254/month is a great deal. I think they're trying to push out the '13 because the '14 is already here. Is that before or after tax?
After tax, sir. That same deal is available on 2014s now. The deals are so good because these cars hold values well.

Hey guys, long time no talk! I hope you all are well. I've been working on the Evo's suspension, and thought I would share here. Take care.

Those Ohlins R&T's look great. Dumb question but why does the rear shock body have so much un-used threading?

You can preload them very differently. But even not aggressive setup, I agree there's excess threads.

Recent HID retrofit with Hella EvoX-R projectors to have real bi-xenons. Love this!





There's a Volk winter clearance, and I caught in there on the last day. So I'm gonna pull these 57Xtremes, sell them, and move to TE37SL in titanium silver. Hope to have those installed this weekend.

I can't believe after a year having the Evo, it's still stock with catback and a slight drop. Your numbers make me go and get it tuned right now. This car insurance is wayyy too high.

I guess that's the beauty of being old and living in a southern state. The difference in insurance of the Evo vs. the GTI is probably $50 every six months.
