Hi guys,i never got any decent pics up when i first come on the site so thought i would put a few up of the scrapper lol,brought this evo really cheap locally from a rough estate and it looks like its been abused by a few owns but looked after by the early owner,its my second fun car so its off the road at the mow and i go and do bits when i can get the time,to be honest i couldn't really afford a Evo and always wanted one from way back saw this one locally knocked the guy down £600 on his asking price so it was a done deal :)

think this was the first pics when i picked it up,lots of sticks all over it that im picking off bit by bit











few stickers gone but still haven't had chance to wash it yet!




not a fan of the rear lights so im going to light smoke them and see how they look









ive been redoing the wheels this week couldn't afford to take them to a company so i brought some paint through a mates trade account for £11 lol









thats all for now will get some pics of the engine soon its proper messy,it is a 4 engine tp5431 but are run it till it pops lol

the cheap is referring to the price i paid for it,not how much it will cost in the future.

just to get it up to std really,not going to do anything other than maintenance to the 4 engine drive it till it pops then fit a later engine,then i will probably go for more engine mods, i plan on keeping the car a long time so who knows what it will end up like nice and clean i hope :)

Haven't updated this for a while as i went on the mlr and forgot i start one on here,i'm not a member on the mlr anymore and refuse to pay to get hassle off the fools on there,so thought i would give this a update.

are try and keep it as short as possible lol,once i got the car over to the garage i checked the crank and it had 1.7mm end float! block was foo bar,so the engine come out

trolley didn't like it lol




swapped everything to this




engine back in



on start up running for 2 minutes it suffered a lack of oil and seized a cam,thought at first it wrecked the whole engine and in hast removed the engine



I had a evo 7 block with a stroker crank that needed a rebore so thought i would rebuild that






skunk2 rods rated at 950+







engine ready to go back in



engine back in



and that's where im at,tried to bleed the clutch but found the slave cylinder was leaking,waiting for a new one to come before i can put all the hoses back in.
