Dave's Evo X Build/The Life of Dave blog
 
I don't frequent this site much, but i am exhausted at work and can't focus so i figured i would start a build thread here.

Here it is when i first got it, outside hasn't changed really, shorty antenna is about it:

Here is my first dyno at DB with catback/intake:
AMS Intake
Buschur Bullet Catback
Also has my baseline with the mods:

Then came a UR testpipe and a retune:

And E85 retune:

This is where the car currently is for power until next week.

My fuel assembly after 6 months on E85 using DIY install kit, worked alright, wouldn't recommend.

Ported FPred with antisurge and FP porting and MAP coating
Ported Exhaust Mani with coating

Fucking sexy! The 4B11 really loves mods! Did you gain ~15 awhp just from the test pipe and a tune?

After my new clutch gets in perhaps, lol.

A sidenote for people not familiar with my build at all, still on stock clutch...and will be for a while on the FPred too, lol.

/pray it holds until funds come. I think i might sell stock parts to pay for it, but would rather not, who knows.

^Yup, moved to Blaine from Plymouth last June.

I noticed that it is strongly recomended to post in the newbie section, or that is what it said there for your first post, lol. Ooops.

Thanks for the welcomes, i will update the thread when more stuff comes in.

What are your goals for the car?

Murlo26 02-18-2010 08:20 PM

Re: Dave's Evo X Build
 
Well 450 on DB's dyno would make me very very happy.

However this initial tune I am thinking 410-420 hopefully.

I guess we will see.
500+ on MAP's is also a goal.

No real goals, just a street monster I guess. I will be happy regardless I think.

Re: Dave's Evo X Build
 
UPDATE:

I had an oil leak from the timing cover:(

Apparently Mitsu has a TSB out for this, but I am obviously not going to take it to the dealer for this since I had cams put in...well that sucks.

MAP is going to fix it, more expenses...man it keeps building up. I am going to be carrying some balance on my credit card for a month or two I think...owie.

turbotalon1g 02-18-2010 08:28 PM

Re: Dave's Evo X Build
 
sucky dude. You think they will even notice the cams? (are they that smart?)

Thats a lot of power, I am expecting the same from my car, but I don't really care since its about what I want.

That motor good for that amount of power?

Well my car is pretty lopey, so yea that would probably figure it out. It's not a huge deal to fix just kind of lame and another 100 bucks or so.

The 4b11t has held up to 700whp stock block. People are running 550-600whp without problems on a more consistent basis, so yea i think the motor should be ok. But there is always the possibility i am the lucky one, i guess we will see.

There are guys running well into the 600's on the stock block. One of the hazards of a new car/motor is that we're not 100% sure about a whole lot of things, including the limits.

Dave was at the MAP dyno day for those of you that were there.

Dave, I find Style a lot more user-friendly for posting pictures. It tends to be more of a mechanic/DSM-oriented site. Overall a nice group of guys but ignorant ballers (pretty much anybody owning an Evo X) aren't granted much sympathy. haha.

I was accused of this when I bought my evo8 about 3.5 years ago. Just keep your cars long enough for them to break a few times, get your fingernails dirty and whine like hell while fixing it, rise above it, and stick around once things are fixed. Now I've proven that with some time, evos are no better than DSMs and have their own shortfalls.
