Jus became a member today. I live in Elgin/Gilberts Illinois (burbs of chicago). I own a 2008 WRX Sedan, as well as a 1990 Mazda RX-7. If anyone is in my area please let me know, i have had the car for 2 months and i am yet to see another 08. Which i am actually happy about, becuz i like being different.

EVO huh.... As part of your crew..... Should get that one into a WRX or STi.... Cause our motor is a better platform to build on.... Mitsu uses the 2.0 motor on the EVO which is a mistake, they should be using the 2.4L motor as it is a much stronger motor. I know that a few shops in my area were having a lot of problems adding to the EVO 2.0L motor, it just couldn't handle it.

Convert the EVO over to the side of light...... HAHAHA

i live in Elgin, its a 25 minute drive from West Chicago, where AMS is located. if you dont know AMS builds EVOs they have the world record EVO 8.63 1/4 mile. so there are alot of "AMS EVOs" around here. basically they are good fro 11s and 10s. Subies are a scarse race here, but i like to be different, so i enjoy it. PLUS my friends 04 WRX is a STI/EVO killer.

I am not saying that EVOs are bad.... I know that they had trouble in the beginning with tuning those beasts. I do think that Subies are better, but that might be a little biased. It is good to be different. SUBIES ROCK!!!!!

And the 04 model is a great model.... It does have the best motor in it.
