Evo 5 GSR - @T_Selby94

Welcome to my thread for my evo 5 GSR !

Starting this thread late, nearly a year late in fact, so i apologise for all my posts to start with whilst i catch up

Moving on up from my starlet glanza v, after an evo being a dream car since a young lad, and keeping an eye out for 'the right one' i finally came across this evo so arranged to view.

Bought the car sept 18 as a fresh import from Guy Fransis Specialist Cars. Very clean car with no rust and pretty much stock which is what i was looking for as good base to start from. Oh and with a few ralliart goodies

Came with full jap service history and the warranty paper work!

New godseep g hook disks and kevlar pads for all round and a good cut and polish was needed !
Replaced the old tired looking blue steering wheel for a lovely, slightly smaller 330mm sparco wheel

Engine bay needed bit of a freshen up! Off with the old tired carbon kevlar covers and on with some nice fresh carbon ones
Manifold heat shield was looking old and manky so replaced with a new cusco one along with some new red rad hoses!
Looks much better !

Plans to go for a little more power, so ordered an m2 3" downpipe and decat. Still waiting to go on just before mapping when the time comes

Recently had new inner tie rod and track rod end for the front and had the rear toe arm polybushed before its MOT due to a bit of play so will be needing to get the alingnment set up again

Since the MOT front driveshaft doesnt sound so healthy, but sourced a nice clean low milage one and is currently on its way

Came home from work to some post today too, evo 9 recirc valve ready to go on when i get a fe mins spare

Nice - making it 'your Evo' without going too mad Very similar story to my VI.
