Only bought it about three months ago, as you see it i bought it. the interior is very clean apart from the dash. Only major problem it had was there was no comp in the motor so with in three days of buying we replaced it with my other engine that i had from my car that was written-off from a lovely truck, also replaced it with my gear box too which had a fresh heavy duty clutch in it.

File comment: A small amount of rust on the rear wheel arch as you can see, also has rust on the opposite side just under the fuel door and right on the window seal near the corner vent.

Yeah i love the 18's on there they suit but i want to put 19's on it and thanx to Andrew(BITZA) i can.
I got the car with a 3 inch exhaust, HKS bov, FMIC, adjustable boost t-piece as far as mods go.

But proposed mods have changed thanx to Andrew too haha:

I will be going t3/t4 turbo now not the t28 i had, 272 cam shaft, MPI, fuel reg, 044 fuel pump, E6X Haltech ECU, L300 dizzy, Ls1 coil packs and hopefully 15-18psi of boost... Hopefully she makes good power...

You will need 10mm height in a tyre to keep your rolling profile correct........otherwise it's time for a GPS to keep your speed accurate.

19's is begging for cops to defect you. 18's are still illegal but look great and don't scream for attention.

Your only allowed to go 2inches higher from standard in nsw. Well they come out in 14's so already it's 4 inches bigger what's one more inch going to do. They really dont pick on wheel size here mainly if intercoolers stick out and canon exhausts generally bring on the attention. That's why I'm changing me exhaust and going old school dumper from my other car. Also my IC will be covered too by new bar can't wait...

Im in Rockdale, Im ganna put the EVO 3 front bar and the original side skirts and rear kit too, ganna go a black mesh and im painting thr front mount black too, i also have the original scoop too which is going on too. But it will all go when the car gets a fresh coat of paint and when the rust is cut out too. It will be de-badged, black moulds are coming off too, rear bar will be painted atlantic blue like the rest of the car too only thing that will be black will be the boot wing and window surrounds...

Im probably going to go to V & E Rigoli to tune it, not many people in sydney mucking around with these things, Rigoli has done plenty so its ganna head there, then once all the performance is all done, body and paint work... Now thinking maybe to go 18G for turbo instead of the t3/t4 very confused. Also adding to the mod list is taking off my blown motor's head and getting it mildy ported too to go with the cam and valve springs... So when are we meeting up smokincordia?

On ebay, item number 230592900752. Or type in Din Car Mitsubishi Double drink holder. It actually has 2 pull out draws, the top is just a plain draw for ipod or a few cd's and the bottom draw is the drink holder... Perfect for the bottom part of the console...
