Have a Nice Day? Something to worry about?

Read this article here:

http://carpoint.msn.com/advice/news_4021046_6.asp

And let me know what you think of the new Turbocharged PT Cruiser. Or the new Mazdaspeed Miata.

Looks like the WRX started it, now everyone is joining in.

Would I buy one, no.

Competition is a good thing though. Maybe it'll speed up the STI's arrival.

I'm just glad cars are getting more popular. What would you rather have on the streets, a turbo PT Cruiser, or a 5000 lb cell phone talking, not paying attention, ramming machine. Down with SUV's!:monkey:

I'm not holding my breathe on the Lancer EVO VII. First off, it's getting a smaller, side mounted intercooler, and a 12g Turbo. That's a far cry from the J-spec version with it's 3-core FMIC and 18g. Sorry, but down on Mitsu! :monkey:

As far as the PT Cruiser is concerned, I'd hit it........... with a Semi-truck.

It's good to see competition in the Horsepower wars! And to think GM/Dodge started it all over again with the Corvette/Viper. Let's hope insurance/gas doesn't kill it again.

Peace,

Scott

I don't know where you got your info, but this is right off Mitsu's site

Quote:
For 2002 (Q4), the home-market Evo VII enhances the basic Lancer platform with a 2.0-liter/276-horsepower DOHC turbocharged four , hardened five-speed manual transmission, AWD with active center differential and active yaw control, special motorsports anti-lock system with Brembo brakes, sport-tuned suspension, and 235/45ZR17 tires. To further ensure swift performance, curb weight has been minimized through lightweight components, such as the aluminum hood and fenders, and thin rear glass.
I can't find where I found it, but it seid the EVO will be here in August or September. I'll try to find it so you can read it.

Mitsu's Home Market = Japan.

They stated at the SEMA 2002 Auto Show that we would not be getting the J-spec version (even though the EVO on display was a J-spec). The version we are getting will only have about 245-265 HP, Different IC, Different Turbo, more cats, and a more restrictive exhaust.

I hope thats not the case. If it is, i guess i'll have to mod to get it to where I want it. That car is just plain FAST.

Unforantely, it is the case. It should be easy to work wiht though. Just get a 18g or 20g and FMIC and you'll have a J-spec car. Well, you'll also have to add the 550cc Injectors the J-spec somes with aswell.

The only thing to really worry about is if the tranny is the sam If not, we could have another WRX misshap.
