VEHICLE STORY

This is the first car I was able to purchase myself and i was very dedicated to make it my first car. I bought the car September 20, 2015. I haven't cut any corners on buying cheap parts reason being I don't want a broken car. It's old and already has enough problems, why create more right? Apparently the Transmission was already cracked when I bought the car and some rough driving helped speed up the death of that trans. Couldn't do a rebuild because it shattered like glass, talk about a heart sinking moment. After a few calls looking around and every shop telling me there's no AWD transmissions left in the U.S. I tried one more shop and TRE had one DSM core left to build. I figured I'd go with a stage 3 build and a 4 way center diff so it's ready for the power I want to eventually make. As of 2017 the big Evo lll 16g turbo is rebuilt and ready to hold all the boost we throw at it. Ever since I had the car it had an issue where it lagged really bad when going into boost so I'm very excited to see how it drives!
