Well, the guys who posted in my welcome thread wanted me to make a thread about my cars; so here it is! I own two cars; a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage Coupe and a 2012 Subaru WRX. The WRX is mostly stock as it's my daily and I want to keep it that way for now and the Mirage...well I wouldn't call it stock haha. I'll just post some pictures of the cars in their current form and post a link to my build thread on Evom to make it easier. There's so much done already to the Mirage that posting all of it would take forever; so here's a rundown of the major work done to it:

2000 Mitsubishi Mirage (and what I can remember off the top of my head of the mod list)

Evo IV front test fit (long way off still, lotta work to do there. Need to switch to the Evo core support and build custom fenders to match the coupe door line)

Image size reduced, original size: 1024 x 768. Click here to view the image in its original dimension.



Exterior:

Evo IV rear bumper w/ lip and support
Evo IV tails
Evo IV badging
Mirage Asti side skirts
Evo IV amber sidemarkers (installed but not pictured, need some up to date shots)
17x8 +35 Enkei RPF1's with 215/40/17 tires

Suspension/Brakes:

Front:

Evo IV front knuckles (5lug)
Evo IV front lower control arms
Evo IV front swaybar
Superpro poly bushings for Evo IV front swaybar
Evo 8 Brembo front brakes with ebay D/S rotors (street use only)
EBC Yellowstuff pads


Rear:

AWD system is being worked on for installation this Winter, but here's the current setup:

92 Mirage Turbo rear hubs (4x114.3) redrilled to 5x114.3
1G DSM rear calipers and rotors mounted via 89Miragemans bracket kit
custom ebrake adapter

Go check out my Evom build thread for some vids of the rear end project! (link further down in thread)


Interior:

Evo IV Momo steering wheel
Evo IV gauge cluster
Evo IV automatic climate control swap (totally custom and required drilling new holes in the firewall. See my build thread for more info as it's quite the extensive conversion)
Evo IV LHD under dash trim piece with pocket (rare)
Evo IV center console with intercooler sprayer button
Evo IV power folding mirror switch
Lancer GSR optional secondary glove compartment (über rare! Only the third in the US)
Evo 8 MR factory gauge pack
Defi Link gauge set (installed in GSR glove compartment)
Evo 8 short shifter and suede boot
Blitz Evo IV aluminum shifter base bushings
Harness bar (not installed in pictures)

Engine:

Stock 4G93 temporary engine swap
Odyssey PC 680 mini battery with custom mount
Cheapo custom intake
Ebay header

Building a 2.3 forged bottom end good for 1000hp and shooting for 600hp on 93oct, but it's in parts right now and I still need internals. The stock 4G15 (1.5L 12V) snapped it's timing belt and I ended up scoring a deal on a 4G93 (1.8L 16V) locally for a good price. (Swap cost me out of pocket only $200 after I sold the parts from the stock setup happy.gif ) Here's a pic of the bay after the swap.

For a more extensive and less sleep deprived thread, here's my build thread on Evom!
http://forums.evolutionm.net/evo-show-shin...on-project.html


Ok, on to the WRX! This ones a bit easier hahaha. It's a 2012 Subaru WRX in World Rally Blue.
I added RallyArmor Urethane mudflaps, SPT oil cap and battery tie down, an SPT turbo heat shield, a Grimmspeed front plate delete, yellow fog tints, a Prosport boost gauge, and a Kartboy short shifter with front and rear poly stay bushings as well as a clear bra and rustproofing/undercoating. That's it and probably all I'm gonna do to it for several years. Here's a few pics!

Best plate EVAR.

So that's it, it's WAY past my bedtime LOL so if the thread is incoherent I'll fix it later today when I get up haha. Hope you guys enjoy! Also these are all old pics and I don't have a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread to prove they're mine lol but my username is the same here as Evom if that helps. Maybe I'll manage to get those things and snap some newer pics soon haha.

O hai! I'm pretty sure I've seen you around EvoM, as big as that place is, strangely I haven't seen your build thread, I'll have to go take a look at it.

I've got a buddy with an Evo3 conversion on a '95 Mirage, but it's torn apart right now in the garage. He went through and did all the stitch welding and everything, so much work, but it's totally worth it as nuts as that car was (and more so will be). He's shooting for over 600hp on the next build with a 2.4, and it only weighs like 2500lbs.

Thanks guys! Hey Spaz your friend wouldn't be named Mark would he? Black and silver 3 with a pink valve cover? (well, had. I think it's all apart right now) I'm friends with him on facebook haha. I know most of the guys with Evo conversions personally actually.

It sure is. I go out for beers with him and his wife every month or so. Shame I don't see him more, despite us living 5 minutes from each other. I always find it funny how small the Mitsu world really is, it's hard to find someone who's over 2 degrees of separation from you these days. Though I must admit, knowing people like Scheides and Kracka doesn't hurt that either. tongue.gif

And I'm pretty sure that pink valve cover is on his AWD Talon Spyder now, unless he has two (I honestly don't remember how many of those things he painted).

Haha yeah. Oh, yeah you're right he did. He doesn't post on Mirageforums so much anymore though so hard to remember what he's up to. Wish he'd get another engine in that car; it's awesome!

It's time and money, neither of which are ever as plentiful as one would like. It's next on his list though once he's got the Spyder squared away. That car is indeed awesome though, it's been quite some time but that car's always been something else when it's running. 5 different colors or not, it's impressive to say the least.

Mirage-Evo conversions are always awesome builds to follow. They make an 2.5RS-STi conversions look like cake walks. laugh2.gif

Yeah, they're a huge amount of work! Between my Dad's welding skill and my electrical skill the conversion hasn't been a big deal so far. It's not like we have to re-engineer anything so that makes it much easier.

So what's the deal with these evo conversions? Why do people pick the mirage to work off of? I was checking wikipedia and some of the years have the same/similar roof(s) as the lancer, are they the same chassis?

Yep, the Lancer was sold as the Mirage here in the 'States.

Having helped with an RS->STi conversion, there's no comparison. Mitsubishi really did build two completely different cars.

Well the 4G Mirage sedan is the same bare chassis as the evo 1 to 3 but everything else is different. I'm not an expert on the 4G though. The 5G sedan bare chassis only has three structural differences to the Evo 4 chassis (A few more for the Evo 5/6 to fit the widebody) and aestheticly they are the same. Essentially all you need to do is swap to the Evo rear floorpan to a 5G lancer/mirage sedan bare chassis and swap all the parts from a real Evo 4-6 over. Here's the kicker for my build. There was never an Evo coupe from Mitsubishi, however they shortened the standard lancer sedan chassis (remember it's the same bare chassis as the evo except for the floorpan and the other two strengthener pieces) to make the lancer coupe. Its exactly the same underneath though; so if you swap floorpans to a coupe you can build a perfect Evocoupe they way it would've been if Mitsubishi had actually made one! Also I have the other two strengthener pieces on mine as well. cool.gif

That doesn't sound very positive, but then again can be very positive...

Anyways, I hope it's good news man.

He had it listed for sale, but I think he backed out, I haven't read his thread for a while but I do know the entire project and all associated parts were up for grabs at one point.
