There's $25k worth of parts in that car rounding down to the nearest thousand... Just what I can see... easy. Even if you parted that car out you would triple your money. In an eye blink.
This is true. That 2g has a couple pretty pennies put into her. And the only problem I could see is screwing himself over on a DD if the evo is his DD.

Read closer. He has an 02 bug eye WRX as a d/d. Says so in his sig.

He has a d/d. Perfect chance to absorb one completed race car. Or make a bunch of fucking money.

Re: Finally picked up an Evo, a true steal!

Oh yes I'm aware, but he isn't going to trade if all I'm going to do is part it out heh. And keeping that 2g up and running is more then I can afford. I don't want a drag car.

Re: Finally picked up an Evo, a true steal!

Oh I didnt see the whole DD thing.

But lets say you do trade him and parting out is not an option, then you have a bad ass race car, that you did not build. Now, to some people, they would not care. But some of the fun, is building your own fast car, not just buying one already completed.

EDIT: Like mentioned above, the car will be costly to maintain. And on another note, the evo would be a bad ass weekend car/toy.

Re: Finally picked up an Evo, a true steal!

Yes, I love the Evo and being able to drive it on the street whenever I desire. It will be getting a HTA 35R kit soon.

The 2g is costly, the bottom end has to be checked and often rebuilt, due to the Magnus aluminum setup. Q16 isn't exactly cheap. I don't have a trailer to get it too the track. If your going fast, you're going to break shit. I don't have a license to race it at the track. It would definitely be more fun to build my own race car, which I plan on doing in the future.

Everyone in the race scene knows who owns and built that car. It just wouldn't be right and would never be labeled as my own.

Re: Finally picked up an Evo, a true steal!

Looks like you got yourself a decent evo for a good price!

A 35r of some sort will def make it a powerful street car!

Do you have to worry about smog refs in Michigan?

Good luck with the HTA 35R set-up. Make sure you post up the results from that.

Awesome pick up. I would love me an Evo, but just can't afford one. Maybe some day.
