Since you're in Edmonton, the highest octane gas you'll be able to get is 94 from Husky. If you want higher, you'll have to run water/meth injection. Getting into the 12s won't be easy because of the altitude issue, you'll need a bigger turbo than the Evo X turbo.

I would bet all my possessions that it would be less then 1% of all vehicles sold. Who would want to risk destroying their car because someone told them they HAVE to go rally racing with it.

Another thing I would really like to know is, how many people with V8's actually use their vehicle for drag racing at the local strip every week? I would also bet that those percentages are also around the 1% mark as well.

There is a reason that most drag strips out there have an "Import Night", there is a HUGE demand for imports at the 1/4 or 1/8 mile. There are Tuners and there are Muscles cars. As the saying goes, "different strokes for different folks."

The reasons I bought this "rally inspired" car are:
1) I only believe in 4x4 or AWD in this snowy canadian climate
2) I wanted a car that was turbocharged
3) I need a car that I can transport my dog, wife, baby and cargo in
4) My wife wanted a hatchback
5) I liked the looks of it
6) Better gas mileage then those "V8" cars you speak of

I could rant on and on about that comment, but I need to go make a drink now. So before you say something so ignorant, just take a step back and dont speak. Unless of course it is constructive or posative. Until then, have a nice day.
Amen

505RA: I found the pricing for all those parts on autocenter.net I'm assuming they have everything in stock. If not they can probably get it pretty quick.

How? The altitude is going to limit the amount of power you can make.

^ I don't see why not, here in FL you can run 12s on the stock RA turbo (fully bolted + tune), don't see why with the bigger turbo you can't run 12s with a 2200ft disadvantage

Fenders new run $400+ painted from OEMmitsubishiparts.com and bumper is $600+ painted. It's hard to find any of these parts off a wrecked car, seeing how there stripped at the junk yards.
Is there something wrong with your head? Are you feeling okay? I can't believe there are people out here saying crap like this. Especially since you're trying to convert your car into something it's not. An Evo X. I can see all of the performance parts but the body panels? Here you are bashing someone for not rallying their car because it's rally inspired. You're essentially saying that they're trying it make their car something that it's not yet you're in effect doing the same thing.

the altitude in edmonton isnt that bad in relation to other places (calgary)

If srt-4s can run 12.9 in edmonton on the stock td04 turbo, the x should and will have no problems doing so either.

A friend with just a turbo back is running 13.4

Getting to a healthy 12.X (ie. not a 12.99) will be pretty hard though. Remember, you're seriously limited in how much torque you can run. AMS commented on this with their FP Red setup. If you're talking about a friend in an Evo running a 13.4, that's not that surprising since they can launch the car.

i thought you were making the comment that the x turbo doesnt have enough power to get there in general. If your talking about our application then yes i understand where you are coming from.

n2mb needs to come out with a wotbox for us that bypasses our silly tranny issues. that would be the day

No I was talking about this specific application. On an Evo, it's enough because they can launch the hell out of the car and just continue to bump up the power if it doesn't get there.
