Kidloco51's IX MR track car build thread.

I started a thread a while back in the Evo show and shine but I soon realized not many of the motorsport guys venture into that section of the forum. There is a lot of knowledge and know how in the motorsport section here on EvoM. Please feel free to comment and share ideas but first a little background on me and the car.

I bought the Evo brand new in 2006. I never had real plans into making it a track only car because I always had a dedicated race car on the side. I ran a Spec Miata in the SCCA for a couple of years and got out of that due to money, time and travel etc. With the Miata gone I started to attend several open track days and started running in a local time attack series with the Evo. At first the mods were simple in the car (my first mods were a sway bar and brake fuild) then they progressed as to what you see today. After 5 years of running the car with stockish power I finally took the plunge into the HP game. So my goal with the car is to run in a nearby Arizona based time attack series and run in NASA T.T. Enough with the blabber onto the pics.

After some brake pads and a sway bar came some R comps and some off the shelf KW's. Look at the poor Brownbos already

Cage looks great. Reminds me of my snowball like project. I wish I had time for stuff like this still..... I have a few projects that need momentum.

Yeah I saw that stuff about the stock pipe, but also haven't found what does work. That's why I asked . I have the Nisei as well and have been wondering about how it will fit if I still go with the AMS pan next year.
