personally if you have paid that much for such a clean example i'd enjoy it as it is assuming you will not put many miles on it the fact you bought it as a clean low milage standard car means they are still in demand in that state at a top price but there are cars on here that have had so much spent on them they just get broken as they cannot recoup money spent :smthumbup:smthumbup my sugestion would be keep it near standard , however exhaust, fuel pump air filter and re- map will see 360hp poss a bit more but why pay that much for a great low miler in standard formHey everyone
I said a while back I was after an evo and I placed a deposit down on one today.
I was looking for one of the iconic shape evos as opposed to the evo x, but I wanted it to have low mileage which is what I'm usually used to when buying cars.
I've got this evo mr fq340 on hold for me now. 7000 miles on the clock from new. Dry stored for the last 8 years.
Quite expensive - £17,500 but the mileage will stay low so I'd hope that after a year or so I'd still get a good chunk back.
Quick question - I want to up the power. Is it just fuel pump and remap that's needed and what sort of figures does that produce. I don't really want to change too much about the car.
tbh think i'd speak to a tuner and have it mapped first as said if you start trying to get past stage one mods ie air filter and exhaust , re-map then it won't be the origonal car you wanted, there are cars for sale on here with not that many more miles with great mods for allot less £ hence why think its maybee worth more left alone :smthumbupYeah really valid point. I've come from a 360bhp subaru impreza so Id like to just hike the power a bit to match that so it doesn't feel so much like a step backwards.
I'd prefer the mods to be 'hidden' so if I could get away without the exhaust and air filter is a fuel pump and remap still worthwhile?
Otherwise it will stay as it is. Low mileage was a big plus for me. It will presumably feel almost like a new car as I usually buy 2 or 3 year old cars.
Thanks matey. I'm in Kent. What local tuners do I have?wasn't that the one that was shown on here about year ago- one of the traders found 2 with less than 10K on the clock?
Anyway, get it to one of the decent tuners and I'm certain they'll be able to get you some decent power gains without changing the exhaust and AF.
Where are you and people will be able to give you an idea of which tuners are around your area.
