VEHICLE STORY

Keeping Colts in the family, so to speak, this belongs to my partner. She wanted in on the Colt magic but wanted something more attuned to her tastes. One week of bargain hunting later we picked up this Mitsubishi Colt CZC Turbo. It is in essence, a CZT but convertible. Turbocharged, and 85% of the engine components and innards are the same as on my 2010 Ralliart Edition. This means all the aftermarket stuff will work a charm.  But she doesnt want to go crazy with it. Where I'm looking for a little more power through a bigger turbo and associated upgrades, she is happy to hit 200hp and make it sound and act more like a Ralliart branded Mitsubishi or 'Mini-Evo'. To that end, it currently has some handmedown Apex Springs to get lower. By about 30mm/35mm front and back. It has a shopping list but it wont be touched til sometime next year. But I'll list em here and in the build list: Gold Mishimoto Intercooler Pink/Purple Forge silicone hoses Mintex Brake Discs and Pads Fifteen52 16" Wheels OR Rays Bronze TE37 or similar. BC Coilovers or better and newer springs (probably H&R or Eibach) FiNe Performance Manifold Turbosmart Kompact Plumb-back Recirc BOV PPTuning Fabricated Cat-back Exhaust Corten Miller Downpipe. 200hp on a budget. No need for crazy clutch business. The long-long-LONG term plan, will be to go for a full rebuild of the block and push the 300-350hp mark and turn it into a bit of a sleeper weapon, but thats when she decides she wants a new car in a few years and I take it off her hands :D
