    What Did You Do To Your Evo Today

    Since we lost a lot of stuff, and since this wasn't a super technical thread to begin with. I am restarting the "What did you do to your Evo Today" thread, since it seems like a waste of time to try and retrieve the 80-100 pages of this thread that may or may not be cached for something that didn't have a lot of tech info. If anyone disagrees and wants to search for and upload the old thread, have fun.

    So I will start.

    I recieved an email today from CBRD saying my new radiator shipped. I also bought one of those big Lisle funnels for refilling the coolant system that attaches to the radiator fill neck.

    I'll contribute to this, too.

    I haven't 100% decided if I was going to keep her yet and have still been toying with that idea since she is now officially "stock" minus the wheels. As such, I finally ordered a set of TPMS sensors from someone to get rid of that damned error code.

    Didn't do anything to the evo but I did call Borg Warner about the 9174 and was told it will be released within the next 30-60 days!

    I got my Evo delivered from Kozmic on Sunday! Woo-hoo!!! Been 10 months...

    I took it for a test drive to see how she feels. It had no front bumper, side skirts, front diffuser, or rear license plate on... but it sounded like a jet plane taking off and pulled hard.

    Then I proceeded to dismantle the engine bay. Pulled the valve cover, strut bar, UICP, LICP, intake manifold, fuel rail, MAF intake pipe, turbo cover, power steering reservoir, coolant reservoir, and wheels. I took those items to the powder coater this morning.

    Thanks to dkevox for help btw.

    Oh yeah... Aeromotions was having some issues with the 2x2 Evo X blades, so they are giving me the Ferrari 430 1x1 blades instead. Lighter, stronger, typically cost 30% more.

    Glad to be back! I must admit that the image verification was challenging... took 4x to do that final step.

    Well I finally removed the clutch pill and wow! Car feels so much better now. I should've done this a looong time ago lol

    but car is almost ready to get back out there....just some touches to the fuel system and other small stuff. have a car show this weekend I've been invited too though

    outside with these two silly girls I've been watching over


    edit: oh god, does this forum not auto-resize oversized pictures? someone plz fix/add feature! I can't be arsed resizing everything

    Can you elaborate on what feels better about it? The stock clutch has always felt pretty good to me... now you got me wondering if I should do this too.

    Shifting is much more smooth, feels great .

    I would get this jerkiness feel and it was annoying. No matter how hard I tried being smooth, leaving stop lights was a pain (I have the CC stage 3 BTW) No matter how I hard I tried to be smooth and in sync with my clutch & gas inputs...it was still jerky and clunky.

    Now with the clutch pill removed, smooth as hell. This is an easy mod to do and it's free...

    Not sure which CMC to go with, from what I've read they're pretty much all the same, right? I had looked at MAPs, were you going with the OEM tank or the aftermarket one?

    Same choice on the gauge.

    Well last night me and a buddy put my swift r springs on and in the process cut a hole in the underbody tray for the front jacking point.

    We opted to do the RCK later

    My road is getting repaved. I stared at the dust all over it and wept a little on the inside.

    I spoke to the shop working on my car...

    FINALLY some good news! My third wiring harness actually works! There is light on the horizon. I'm in cheese country next week but hopefully by the end of next week it may actually be running again...

    Chet's sending me some goodies to make things work correctly so that's killer too. Thanks again mr. RickerDude.

    I'd love to - but my car is still up in the air. What are the dates for shift sector? It would definitely be fun to compete in a big roll race event though!

    Fuck em. Banning the most knowledgeable and active members of the community will only lead to a slow and painful death. Their loss, not ours.
