I recently bought the project car that i've been wanting. I'm still in shock from the performance and love the car, but do not know where to start with upgrades. the car is an '03 lancer evo 8 and as it stands right now I've got about $1500 to play with. Any suggustions would be appreciated.
Personally...1500 bux on an Evo VIII...hmm...I would say some different wheels...as good as the Enkei's look...I would get something else that really brings out the car...keep the Enkei's if you want to use them as track wheels...if not...sell them.
best thing to do is find a local evo club....
also i'd suggesst aftermarket performance camshafts, maybe new rods and pistons....but all these and more are going to cost a lot more than 1500...after installing engine strengthening parts, i'd get a boost controlled a push a few more pounds of boost. :D
Use the money to join a car club and start getting involved in organised sport if you haven't already done so.
