yeah, its a celica engine. 190bhp. The thing that i dont like is that since it is such a well breathing engine, and 11.1:1 compression, head/cam/intake/exhaust = 20-30hp max.

I'll prolly just keep the evo. Rick - everything I understand is that the Evo is the only mitsu to ever buy. The body is designed completly different as well as the interior. Just depends on how everything holds up and the evo is supposed to hold up really well because it is the same chassis they use on the WRC cars.

The older ones looked good when they were new, they just didn't last very well, the quality wasn't there. I had a couple of Plymouth Arrows (built by Mitsubishi, the bodies were eaten up with rust, the interiors were in rags, but the things would still run like a bat outta heck. The first one I had the hinge on the hatch back pulled loose from the body.
