Evo VI RS2 Weekend/Fast Road Toy

So, where do i begin?

Since i was a teenager the Evo 6 was my dream car. I got the bug from cars since i was very young due to my dad being a car enthusiast and specially a rally fan . The rest is history as they say



I had many cars before and many projects (I´m a Mx-5 Turbo guy for many years) but never got the chance to buy the Evo. But in 2018 I had the opportunity .

Regarding my Evo 6, I bought it in May 2018 in desperate need off tlc . The paint was a mess, the body rough and mechanically it needed a big service since the car stood still for about 3 years.

The day I bought it .



After the purchase I sent the car immediately to a friend of mine for a full strip down. Bonnet, doors, trunk, glass, everything was removed for a proper paint job . While I was there i bought all the trim brand new at the Mitsubishi dealership. That was painful to my wallet, but in the end the result makes up for it.

On the way home from the Paint shop .




And finally at home.



Not that I got the car my plan was to strip the interior to clean everything and install the new interior that I have bought. My car had the interior trimmed in leather and I hated it. So I bought a interior from a Evo VII RS2.





Meanwhile the parts were starting to arrive



And I could not help myself and bought a HKS Silent Hi-power catback




But I could not get distracted. So let´s start striping the interior down for cleaning purposes!




Dad helping me as always



filthy












Many many hours of scrubbing after !










In the meantime I removed with a help of a friend the old alarm installation.



And finally started reassembling the interior







Since I was waiting for parts for the interior I decided to attack the engine bay

First I decided to check the inner front sills



All good!

Then I decided to wire down to bare metal the front crossmember and hit it wit por15 .



New radiator arrived





Fitted


New radiator hoses



New radiator cap





New radiator supports



Radiator Brackets



Thermostat





Also arrived :

M2 Decat (Not a big fan of the quality tbh)



Walbro Fuel pump





Then, a few days to install everything .

To be continued

Thank you guys so much for your kind words

Let´s keep updating the thread !

My refurbished wheels arrived with Michelin pilot sport 4 that I have choosen.

If it was a track car or see some trackdays, i would have choosen the Pilot Sport Cup 2 or even the AD08R that are fantastic tyres . But for now and to understand the balance and handling of the car i prefer something less grippy. At least for now



Decided to use some wheel sealant to keep them easy to clean.



And the rest of the service parts .

- Water pump
-Timing belt
- Heater hoses
- Arp rod bolts
- Balance shaft belt
-Spark plugs
-gearbox fluid
-diff fluid
-brake fluid
-braided lines
-oil filter (2 for performing a engine flush)
-Cam seals
-crank seal
-Oil drain pipe seal

And a lot off gaskets and things I can´t remember on top of my head



Since I had to remove the Downpipe to gain acess to the Oil Pan i tought it would be a good ideia to order a new one.

Bought one for M2. (Much better quality than the Decat in my opinion)





And received my front calipers from refurbishment . Very expensive but worth it in the end.





Being installed




And since my side markers were white i ordered original ones from





My brake Bleeders covers were also not original so i bought a few



Cam Sensor shield since I broke the original when fitting my coolant hoses. Now I know why do they exist. It was a expensive mistake. Lesson learned.




New bonnet seal ordered and installed




I ordered also new headlights and markers



New battery support




New wheel center caps




Since my Gearknob was worn I ordered a new one





Rear trunk sticker also arrived



Also received my carbon plate



Bought the front foglight covers. I have 2 sets of foglights stored




Rear aligment bolts



And bought one HKS RS intake




And a Cusco Catch Tank



More stuff from Mitsubishi (They love me by now…)





Everything in place like 1999



RS brace installed



Carpet covering it up



New fuel door clip





New pedal covers




[IMG]New intercooler switch[/IMG]




New heatshield




And finally after MOT first ride





To be continued

Let´s continue

Since my original bumper was not in perfect condition I decided to buy another one. Besides having a spare one now this one is in better shape, not perfect (a tab is broken) but acceptable for now.

New bumper in place



And bought new wheel archs








New licence plate support



In place



All in place




Also received something I was looking for a long time





All I needed now was a radio to install everything at the same time. Nothing to fancy since this car is for driving and not to listen music sitting on the traffic



The general view of the interior whit the JDM cluster that I installed





Since the main service 400 km were done and it was time for another oil change



Also decided to change all my vacuum hoses and ordered two sets from Mitsubishi.





Since the car was Painted several months ago at this time, and never washed I decided to detail the car and give it a Ceramic Coating . Truly worth it .



How the car was looking



And to finish it off I wrapped the windows trim in black like it came from factory








And we are up to date regarding the state of the car

The only news is that I bought this :





The plan is to install them before the summer along with some other things

Now just need the rain to stop to keep driving

Thank you all that managed to real all this
