2006 MITSUBISHI EVOLUTION IX

This car was purchased brand new by @evojet back in 2006. I have personally witnessed this car go from stock form to a borderline track dedicated vehicle, which I am sure it will soon become. Even though one might consider the powertrain modifications to be rather "mild" by today's standards, keep in mind that this car has now clocked in close to 120K miles on factory bottom end. Most of those miles are either from very spirited canyon runs or all out track days.

Aside from a pretty aggressive looking splitter in the front, the body has kept all its factory features. Even the OEM carbon fiber factory spoiler is producing an adequate amount of downforce for the type of driving that this car is used for. Suspension received an extensive amount of modifications and has also been dialed in perfectly. AP Racing front BBK does an excellent job stopping the car and further promotes driving confidence.

Under the hood, an untrained eye would guess that this a stock motor with at most, 10K miles on it. Pipe routing and color selection has been kept within a factory theme. Of course, those who are familiar with these vehicles would notice numerous mods and relocations that took hours to be executed in such a subtle and stock looking manner. For more info and if you want to hear a 3rd opinion on this car, a full review is available on one of The Smoking Tire's episodes.
