Evo memories

Out of the slide film that I finally developed there were a number of shots from the end of the Evo upgrade project. I believe these were all after the new engine went in and were during the break-in period, but before Cam was out here to shoot and test the car as well.

Looking down the passenger side of the Evo
Parked at Henry’s back when he lived at his parents. We were about to change the suspension.

At Henry's house about to install a new suspension on the Evo
Fortune 500’s sitting in the trunk, about to get installed.

Engine bay open, preparing to remove the old suspension
The engine bay looks a lot more stock than it does now. This was also before going to speed density I believe.

Evo parked off the freeway at an overlook
Parked off the I5 taking a break from traffic. I think we had to 600+ miles on the engine to break it in before tuning.

Looking head on at the Evo during sundown
The chopped nose with the painted lip and cusco brace is a good look, though I still prefer the Evo 7 front it ultimately ended up getting changed to.
