Not yet, but once I have test fitted the seat rails I'll be able to establish if the EVO Recaros will fit. From what I have been told by others it should be a direct swap.

I just signed in to check this thread and found this. That looks pitiful, man, the frame damage that you found. $950 will barely cut the price on purchase and (maybe) paint for that bumper that got trashed. That really sucks, bro. All in all, the car looks pretty good to have been "bumped" so hard.


I hit up the drag strip this past Thursday. Wound up running without an oil cap and losing a crapload of power on acceleration. Barely ran 12.5 in 1/8 mile. Replaced the oil cap and the car ran like normal, no apparent damage from super-low oil pressure, praise the Lord! I did put more thought to a ram air intake scoop and a set of extractors because of that. It was fun, first time ever going, let alone running. Definitely trying to go again this week if I can. Found an oil leak that was probably antagonized by mistakenly running synthetic oil on this past change. If it gets to be too big of an issue, I'll drop the pan and replace both pans and replace the gaskets. A little Lucas never hurt, right? Haha

Added a picture of the placement on extractor vents. Pulled them from a junked '04 Lancer ES. Looked like they would be perfect and stand out from everyone else's, should I find someone with an Evo or what have you. Any ideas? This won't be the final placement, but it will be close. I'm going to do the scoop over the intake air box before I do this so that I know where they need to be in order to remain symmetrical on the hood. Crookedness and asymmetry bother me a lot.

well no totaling out of the car , the insur just wont do it , even with the extra check I got for the frame damage behind headlight isn't enough. I cant even collect money from him cause my insur said I have to pay back what they give me witch is bs.. so I'm gona have to get a lawyer now to see what my rights are in this case agains the driver that shouldn't of been driving and owner of the van...

so with that extra check, I had to get 2 new tires today as fronts were about to pop just like the last one. had no choice tread seperation was happening...

so with that ****ty $960 check, I'm going to , call me stupid, and repair that front bumper. tomorrow, going to pepboys and get fiberglass mat, resin, hardner to do the work.. and for headlights I had to duct tape the back as it was cracked in 3 spots but still turns on lol. so until I can get rest of whats owed from that [email protected]$% driver and owner, I'm going to install my piaa 510's as extra lighting lol

Working on re-installing my exhaust pipe where I swapped it out for the drag strip last week. Gotta get it straight this time where the idiots who put the resonator in couldn't manage.

Man, that looks rough. If you're careful enough, you might be able to fix that with a rag, a prybar, a rubber mallet, and a lot of patience. It hurts to look at that bracket knowing that it's the frame/body that's been damaged. At least she's not totaled!
