XXX Project – Mitsubishi EVO 8

Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VIII is a car already “prepared” at the factory, but with little imagination and madness, the result can be superb.
The car below was a victim of “happy” owner’s imagination, which he called a simple “XXX”.
Home surgery counseling was installing a stroke kit from HKS with all the amendments thereto: 800 cc injectors, turbine and EVO9 borrowed from several other changes, which led to a herd of 500 hp.

Spirra – Ace from Koreans sleeve

Koreans are playing with heavy metals and are real competitors for the Gallardo or F430. All this with a supercar built in their homes by the company Oullim Motors.
The Spirra was born two years ago and leave the impression that parents are a Toyota MR2 and an Acura NSX, due to external similarities. The engine is one borrowed from the Hyundai Tiburon, a V6 2.7-L, which with few modifications, offers no less than 400 hp. We could say that performances are not bad, considering that the Turbo produces 100 horsepower more.

300 HP Honda Civic EG5

You have a car and you want a change. You’ve got the money. Good. The first step would be to take your car to a professional tuner. Or do you just work with your hand, as only you know about “what’s in your hand not lie”.
In the same way of thinking is the owner of this Civic EG5 1.6. In 2000 he started working alone and with their hands on his car. The result is more than the measure.
The engine received so many national new (forged pistons and connecting rods, turbine, an enlarged and modified exhaust route) and a control unit of the K-Pro ECU, enabling the automatic increase in turbo boost pressure from 0.6 to 1.0 bar, respectively from 230 hp to 300 hp.
Given the need for control and stability of the car, it opted for a set of D2 Racing suspension and a six-piston brake kit, all D2.
