Johnno's Evo 6 W.I.P Thread.

It didn't take me long to get into another evo, it's pretty addictive.

So here's my new purchase, it's a Uk GSR. This is not going anything like my old car, no carbon, no expensive suspension, just track days fast road fun. Exactly what evos are all about. I just couldn't bring myself to do that to my 9.

Brief overview:

59k
2000 's' reg
AP's on the front
Hks exhaust
Hks air filter
Hks dump valve

That's pretty much it, it's clean underneath, and pulls well. ( for a car that's never been mapped )

So my plans :

New front discs and pads
Tires
Few new bushes as I have a few knocks suspect drop links / arb bushes
Get the recall for the rear arms done
Re furb and polish a few bits
Machine polish
Power steering pump (it's a bit dodgy)

Then enjoy it

Only got the one photo, will be doing a big clean tommorow

Totally, you know yourself it gets a addiction spending money on stuff that makes you not want to drive it and just look at it.

You're car and others on here look amazing, and I appreciate it, but right now I just want to go drive the thing.
