The Story

This is actually the second Evo 8 I have owned. I owned a 03 Red Evo before but bought when I was too young and no money to maintain it. Sold that and bought this Evo almost 2 years ago as I am the third owner (Technically second). Second time I drove it when I bought it the throw out bearing decided to no stay home and jam itself between the flywheel and clutch (just my luck). Since I have got the car re-sprayed, cleaned up and bought an entire other 4G to build in my garage (Have all major components besides a Valve cover and the annoying small things. The current motor in the car is all the necessary and tasteful fun daily upgrades. But I plan to build a Max 550 HP street Evo. I plan to take it to VIR starting next year (2025) also.
