Another update on my 2.4l Evo 8

After all the hard work and time i put into this car, i am glad to say that i have finished my car. It just needs a tune as of now. It has a MAP 2.4l with Manley internals. It is built for 600+hp. I realize that i am a 15 year old and at my age with not alot of experience with driving, i will be sure to keep the boost down haha. (sometimes) Very excited to get my license and drive! And im glad to be a part of the Evo community! Heres some pics of putting the car together. I did 85% of the car with some help of my dad and his friends. (Surprising that a 15 year old put this car together, right?) Anyways, heres some pictures. Leave some tips and tricks below!



































exhaust and drive shaft on



Waiting for its engine to get fixed



going on the lift to take engine out



Spun rod bearings ! Crank walk!



All back together



shipping the engine out to get fixed



engine out

Congrats dude! Make sure you keep an eye on her, evos are no joke, but best car I've ever owned! I had an 800hp one and it was scary. Also keep an eye on oil! Change frequently, make sure car has a good catch can, and if you are going e85 make sure you use a proper oil that is compatible! Also make sure you have a cam angle sensor heat shield, not cheap to replace. Do not floor it in 4th or 5th gear. Have a lot of fun!

Dayum! 15 years old? That's great! Just please don't be a statistic. So many young people with a VERY powerful car, end up doing stupid things when they drive! Being that this will be your first car, please take it easy. Everyone with a sports car want to see the 'speed factor' of their car, but the ones that don't have experience, can hurt themselves, and others around.

So, enjoy your car, you have alot to be proud of! Just remember all the hard work, time and money you have invested in this awesome car, and be careful. Be safe, and cheers to you and your 'Team" of builders that all helped!

I'll be sure to respect the power. Right now i only have it at probably 350-400hp and it is satisfying enough haha. Maybe i'll move up on the power later, I only have my permit and Mom doesn't like the speed
