New JDM (RHD) Evo 8 GSR owner's introduction and a question

Hi guys, would just like to say hi as I am quite new to the evo scene although I have been lurking around this site for quite some time learning about the platform (or at least trying to). As the title states, I am a new evo 8 owner whos car just landed recently (yes, it was imported from Japan and I am from Canada )

I do have quite a few parts lined up for my "beginner's build" such as an evo 9 turbo (and all the necessary parts), full 3in TBE, 750cc injectors, fuel pump, o2 dump, ceramic coated exhaust manifold and etc.

Also, I am currently in the process of researching about DIY's for the fluid changes in which I do have a question regarding the brake fluid change. Considering that USDM evo owners typically bleed the right rear brake caliper first, does that mean I have to bleed my left rear caliper first? I am aware that I have to bleed the caliper that is furthest away from the master cylinder, but I am not entirely sure where mine is :/. I apologize if this may seem like a "stupid" question.

Anyhow, here she is




(yup, she got some subtle aero done lol )

Welcome and congrats on the Evo! You are right to wonder about bleeding order for your RHD evo. I did a little digging, and the order is indeed different.

Actually the rpf1s are 179 +35. Snagged them for a great deal, although needed some spacers for brake clearance. Really appreciate the compliment and help!

Thanks! I have no idea where u were able to find this info, but it will certainly be very helpful. Also, I assume the left side of the image is the front side of the vehicle?

Your welcome. That's right the left side of the image is the front of the car. The Evo 7 manual on evoscans website is more geared towards the global market, which is where I got this from.

I see. One more thing, the gsr I got from Japan is a 6 speed (odd, but normal apparently), would this affect the process?

Nah, the bleed procedure Sacks gave you would be the one regardless of the trans
