2005 Lancer Evo = fast

So a buddy of mine owns a car dealership, and last night he stopped by to show me a new car that got traded in... a 2005 Lancer Evo that had some nice mods. The guy who traded it in for a new Z06 said he put about $8,000 in mods in it. From what I could tell right away, it had CAI, exhaust, aftermarket turbo, boost controller, turbo timer, and short shifter. Turbo is pushing about 15 psi, so I think this car is easily pushing over 300hp.

Then he let me drive it. Holy $h!t, that car is fast! I have never driven a turboed car and this first time experience has got me addicted to F/I. So much fun. We did a few 0-100 mph runs and I think it only took about 6.5 -7.0 sec to get there.

that is all

6.5-7.0 0-100 from a 300-350hp car? no wayyyy. it'd need like almost twice that much power for those times..

Dream on ... an Enzo takes 6.6 to 100mph ...

And by the way, a stock Evo boosts at around 17psi ... just a FYI.

It was only a guess at the time. My point being it felt frickin' fast.

Question They are quick, and you had fun, SO

The details are less important. However, when you post times to the car crowd, they will hold you to them! There were 2 10 second cars (both 9.1 for the 1/4 mile) at my race shop the other day. One was a Z06 and the other a totally custom Porche twin turbo. The Vette had a wing like literally a plane, and the Porche an intercooler the size of an air conditioner! They were modded to the moon, and each had 850-900 hp to the WHEELS to get that fast. Freakin' scary is what! The Porche guy had a full sized actual Badge in his windshield for those inconvenient stops at 180mph...

Bottom line - Boost is FUN, usually expensive, and it would be interesting to actually have CONTROL of it as many cars do now. I like that idea a lot. With mine, I'm just looking for a nice matching gauge to know what I'm blowing at any given time. Hop on the F/I train and enjoy the ride - (hint - it's FAST!!!

My uncle owns a boosted to Hell Nissan/Datsun 260Z. He used to be a drug dealer. Crime pays kids.

Once you get caught you have a lot of trial time and probation... Probation really sucks!
