.

One thing though with us Pinoys here is that we are quite sick of dragging Evos (im sure you would agree with me that we had Evos here since 1997). Hondas still remain as the ultimate drag car. There is so much potential in Evos other than that being a drag car. So we tune them as both a drag car and a circuit car. Though with the better technologies of the Evo like ACD/SAYC, we would love seeing the Evos beat Porsches around BRC.

Also, heres another trivia. Didnt you know the Autoplus Evo VI TME, with all its 615whp, is being used daily in Binondo's traffic? I'm sure alam mo naman ang traffic sa Binondo. Yet, when it comes to the strip, it went low 10s. It was a complete balance of a street and race car, built for Philippine conditions.

Though 400k difference just for those minus SAYC, i dont think the US models would be worth it.
its not worth it.. id rather use that 400k to purchase performance parts & make my evo go like a road runner.. beep beep.. the RS2 is lighter & faster compared to the MR... REV UP guys!

400k will buy you a new turbokit by HKS RS2 is definitely lighter and faster than the US Spec MR. It is a ready race built car. I purchased my Evo 5 without aircon and a headunit. seems like the first owner wanted to keep its rawness. Difference with me is that I hate garage queens.

Man!!! That Carrera GT sounds so fookin GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! I love that Boxer engine sound...

Hmmm.. must be why I miss my Impreza sometimes... that boxer engine sound...

and hell ya... garage queens = boring. I know a few evo owners who don't drive their cars except drag racing and on sunny days. F that! I'm glad I don't hang out with peeps like that.

Damn.. that reminds me my daily driver is sooo damn dirty from all the snow, salt and rain! It needs a good wash!

Garage Queens and Drag Queens (only used in drags). Thats why my car uses such mods, coz putting in a super big turbo like a GT42 or GT40 will only result to me enjoying 650+whp on upper RPM ranges, di na bale. I would rather have lower power but enjoying all of them at mid range RPM and not for drag but in the circuit also. more thrills!

In subic, its all RHD converted to LHD = not reliable.

Evo sold in dealerships is the Evo 9 RS2 Euro spec original LHD with ACD/SAYC and rear bumper with diffusers. Together with other importers here like Auto Gallery and Auto Trend.

GTRs are obviously imported from Japan but there are some shops here that can convert them properly.

Evos mas napapansin pa ren ang mga CP9A
