Long time no post, I know. I just moved to Colorado and am still in temp housing waiting for approval on my rental. Anyhow, on to the pics.

When I bought her


My "Show Only" Phase








During this phase I attended four shows and had two 2nd place finishes and one Best Mitsubishi finish. The last show did not even have a category for eclipses to compete. It was a sham.

Mods are:

Exterior: Blacked out, 18" Enkei LF-10 Rims, Nexen Tires, Alex's RA Eyelids, Powerslot Slotted Rotors, Red Stuff Brake pads, SS Brake lines (waiting hook up)

Interior: Replacing all painted "show" plastics with stock plastic, Well Bilt Kustoms Harness Bar, G-Force Harnesses

Suspension: Tanabe Strut Tower Bar, Progress Rear Sway Bar, Megan Racing adjustable coilovers

Engine: RRE Header, RRE Camshaft, RRE Pulley, Fujita SRI, AEM UEGO gauge (waiting hook up), AEM FI/C with Brian J. Harness (waiting hook up), Magnaflow 2.5" cat-back.

A lot in store for the future. I would like to start tracking the car. Going to put stock sideskirts back on while I put the interior back to stock. Will probably go with Ripp's SDS down the road. I'm really enjoying the N/A feel right now. The RRE parts in the engine really pull hard and make the 4 banger feel more alive. Can't wait to get the AEM parts hooked up and start tuning the car. Overall I love every part I have on the car right now. The exhaust sounds awesome with the engine mods. It's nice and deep when I step on it and isn't raspy and ricer sounding at any speed of RPMs. As things progress I'll post more pics and keep you all updated.

Hopefully I'll be on more since I'm in Colorado now. It'll still be slow until we get moved into our new house and get things set up. Can't wait to get caught up on how the last month and a half have been for you all.

How much dod it cost you to make that harness bar? Do you have any issues with the harnesses goings through the stock seats? (like having the harness straps too close, rubbin your neck, etc?)

I bought the harness bar from an old member who has a shop make them in Cali. I used a dremel to cut a slit out of the honey comb part of the seat. No issues with the harnesses rubbing. I only use them for track purposes. I use the OEM seatbelts for daily driving. If you are interested in buying the bar, PM me your email and I"ll get it to the guy you need to talk to.

I haven't really taken it too aggressivly around corners yet, but from what I have done I can tell it has stiffened things up. There is a race track about 40 miles from where I live in CO and hopefully I'll get some track times with it come spring.

I know I called it my "Show Only" stage, but it was really my ricer stage. I"m glad to be done with it and moved on to a more performance oriented goal. I'm also thinking of hooking up with an Evo IX MR or WRX within a year or so. WRX's have really come down in price for used ones, but the EVO's are still pricey. I would like to keep it all in the Mitsu Family though.

Great thread man! :) Looks pretty good. And it's great that you've kept records of what you did to your car when you did. And where it rests now. Once upon a time I had a wish list too... and almost four years after the fact and I'm still not anywhere close to where I thought I'd be.

Glad to see someone's been there and back! :)
