VEHICLE STORY

My 2010 Cobb Evolution X MR - I bought this car October 2010 in Virginia. I was getting ready to leave work full time and go to school full time in Texas. It took me 3 years to finish my BS degree in Management Information Systems with emphasis in Information Security from the University of Texas at Dallas. It also took me 2 years, during my college years, to get my EVO fully built by Cobb Tuning Plano. First mods done to my car was the Cobb Stage I, then Cobb Stage II, and then Cobb Stage III power packages. Which gave me the following:  Cobb Access Port  Cobb Quad Tip Exhaust  Cobb 3" Test Pipes  Cobb 3" Downpipe (Replaced with MAP Performance 3" Open Dump Down Pipe)  Cobb Upper Intercooler Pipe Kit  Cobb SF Intake (Replaced with Custom Cobb built bigger MAF and Intake)  Cobb 3 port Boost Control Solenoid  GiroDisc Rotors Had a fuel system power surge (Factory motherboard caused the fuel system to lean out at 5k rpm and melted the #4 piston)  and proceeded to go crazy with a complete build.  Cobb did the following work:   Engine Build:   Darton Sleeves   CP Pistons   Pauter Rods   Kelford 270/260 Cams w/ Supertech Springs   1300cc Injectors   Complete fuel system upgrade with additional fuel surge tank   Forced Performance FP Red Turbo (upgraded to better waste gate)   Heads Built and Race Ported (1mm bigger valves)   AMS Intercooler Transmission Build:   Dodson Clubman Clutch Kit Initial tune produced 375hp and 325 tq. Current additional mods:  AMS SST Transmission Cooler  Boombah Racing 75mm Big Bore Throttle Body  Mishimoto V-Mount Oil Cooler  MAP Performance O2 Eliminator Downpipe with External Dump  MAP Performance Tubular Exhaust Manifold   Had a few issues on the first Pro Tune from Mach V Motorsports so scheduled a check up with Moore Automotive. The guys over at Moore are an exceptional group. They got the car in and upgraded the spark plugs, did a compression test and leak down to make sure everything was good to go, because the car was running funny. They had a Pro Tune cancellation and went ahead and retuned the car. Makes great power and feels a ton stronger now. Current Tune - 419hp and 377tq.

Korey - I went from an FP Red to an FP Black with the Dodson clutches in my MR. This thing is sick. Clutches are amazing. Haven't had any issues thus far. Built and tuned by Cobb so that also may have something to do with it.

How is the dodson clutch kit working out for you? It's time for me to upgrade as well and I'm looking for some real world feedback from people who have had work done on thier SST.
