Hello to everybody, just wanted to introduce myself. So, I come from Latvia, decided to become member of MLR because I bought myself Evo VI TME, and also because here are nice and wise people hanging around, lots of good tips. Decided on VI TME because this one is the best, after trying everything from VI to VIII.
Have a plan to upgrade my Evo to 400 hp. Have allready ordered Blitz Nur Spec R, HKS downpipe, HKS SSQV, Ralliart panelfilter, Cusco strutbraces and Ohlins suspension is allready fitted. Will probably go for Motec engine management, and have to decide wich turbo and manifold to go for, maybe some tips?
At curent spec I`m not too satisfied with the car, but I think it`s down to horsepower, I have also a modified Focus RS, with prowen 300 hp, and it`s a tad faster, and handles just as well, the ride is better and interior quality too.
I bought my Evo because there is not much to improove in the RS anymore, was thinking to sell RS but it still makes a grin on my face when I drive it, so decided to leave it to my brother and borow sometimes...
I am 25 years of age and I became Latvian rally champion by the age of 23, In rally I drive Ford Escort WRC, well that gives me some kick, 280 hp Evo is qeit boring if compared, thats why my goal is 400 hp, don`t want more because I don`t want to spend silly amounts of cash in diffs, gearboxes, and so on, just reliable, drivable 400.
My car career:
Ford Sierra Cosworth 2wd, Ford Escort Cosworth, VW Golf GTI, Subaru Impreza WRX 99`, Honda Civic TypeR, Subaru Impreza Wagon WRX 96`, Ford Focus RS (still have it), Subaru Impreza STI Prodrive Style 02`, Subaru Impreza WRX Prodrive tuned 99`(just for winter fun and recce, but just sold it), and now Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI TM ed.

Are You familiar with such problem, I cant stop buying stuff for my Evo, in two weeks time I have got Blitz exhaust, HKS manifold, HKS downpipe, Ralliart filter, HKS blow off, Cusco strutbraces, Ohlins suspension and so on, but somehow I think it`s only the begining... :rolleyes:

Hi welcome!

My name is Theodore and i am located in Athens Greece.

I have been in Riga Latvia 2-3 years ago, for business and i have stayed there for 20 days. I was attending some repairs to one of our company's vessels in Riga Shipyard! It was end of November and it was really really cold! Much more than freazing actually!
