Whats wrong with your Evo? Ours is one of the best mpg we have. On the hwy we get from 27-30mpg.

Evo people problems...

I got 17 driving to great falls from pocatello. The uhaul trailer may have had something to do with that though.

Nothing. Got a solid 33 mpg driving to IF on the back highway. Usually about 26 on the interstate at 75. Any faster though and mileage drops off precipitously.

Almost every morning there's a silver Spec B that I drive to work from Jefferson to the freeway in front of/behind. It's kind of fun. I'd like to think we're bros by this point.

What time in the morning? It might be me, I usually ride to the Shelley junction lot at about 5.

As an update, I cancelled my new FFR kit order and ended up getting a partially completed kit from a guy down near Provo. Already had a 4.6L 3V out of an '05 Mustang w/ tranny. Saved about 15-18k over going with a new Coyote, TKO600, and new kit. With the Ford Racing cams the motor should be good for 350ish unless I get nuts and bolt on one of the several available superchargers. As another plus, I won't need to sell the SpecB so it will stay in the stable for a while. Let the project begin!

I understand the silver Spec B is driven by a cop. Brant knows him.

Any one got one laying around...?

Exactly. Everyone seems to say that n/a and turbo flanges and pipe length are compatible if you're just talking axle-back. Nope. The bolt circle is too wide given the larger F.I.-car pipe diameter, and the flange is clocked wrong. It could be made to fit with some work, but i'd just prefer to find a take-off n/a muffler section instead.
(no worries tho, the STi take-off will be put to good use on the FXT...)

Silver Lining? I think so

I actually dismounted my snows for the suby, so ha. Reverse progress. I'm ahead of Dylan even...



Speaking of... Someone here still needs a set of 5x100 BBS, I'm sure of it...
