Default My new ricer

Whats up guys, so I am officially the new owner of a 2003 Evo 8. Took about 10 hours leaving at midnight to get to Putnam park road course where I met the guy bought the evo and then came back a few hours later after checking out Indianapolis some around 11 PM. Longest day ever but it was worth it for this evo!
The car handles a million times better than my mustang did and all it has is lowering springs, its got about 320WHP and pulls extremely hard and feels pretty much just as fast as the mustang since I never have to worry about traction anymore. My plans are to convert to E85 soon and hit close to 400WHP. The car feels better than my mustang in pretty much every way.
I don't have any really good pictures of it yet so I'll put of some shots that I got at gas stations on the way back and I'll update the thread tomorrow with better shots after I have a chance to wash it.

Haha i know its not a ricer, i just put that as the title cause its on a mustang forum. During the drive back i got 25mpg which was so great. I haven't experienced that in so long! Of course once i go e85 that'll go away.

Congrats on the new car! BTW, whats the deal with the front bumper? The parts where you can see the intercooler piping looks like there are pieces missing... and if its supposed to be like that... why?

Thanks! The car used to have a huge fmic on it so he had to cut the bumper to make it fit but he went back to stock so it shows more now. Ill get a bigger one eventually and the bumper still looks good even with the holes so i was fine with it.

Nice man, congrats. Good to know you can hit 25mpg's and have around 320hp lol. I'm happy with my mach 1 sitting around 25-27mpg's (highway) and around 300rwhp.

goodluck with it!
