That's a sweet looking car you got there.

Off topic: That isn't Crescent Lake, is it?

Nice mitsu! I sold them for years and always loved 'em. I always drove a GST and then a GTV6 when they switched. Great handling cars, and yours is sweet looking(even with the broken handle).

Um.... probably not... I don't remember the name of it, but it's a lake on Orcas Island, which is part of the San Juan Islands off the west coast.

Sadly enough, I don't know yet.

Just bought her back in April or so, and she spent a month and a half in and out of of the shop fixing all the crap that the last owner screwed up (half the reason why I bought it... sad to see a good car in bad shape)

So now the engines all good, but I need new springs and shocks... the owner before the kid I bought it from chopped the springs... dumbass. The ride is actually surprisingly smooth, but it's wearing out the shocks, so I'm just going to get some good springs and shocks in one move.

Then after that, I need to do boost and vacuum leak tests, and fix any leaks. THEN I'm going to the track and the shop to tune my car and get it dyno'd. Sometime before the end of the year I want to get a 3" downpipe and a new fuel pump so I can get over 300HP to the wheels.

Yeah, never got my crap together in time to run before the tracks closed for the winter...gotta love the problems that get in the way... but I did finish my front end! oh, and a new baby and college/work full time definitely eats up some of my time,

But, for now all I need is a new balljoint for the lower control arm in the front and then she's good to go, 100%

Hopefully before spring I'll get it into a tuning shop, or alternatively I might have a buddy help me street tune it... he has a '97 Eclipse Spyder with roughly 400AWHP (26+PSI on an EVOIII 16G turbo), so his help may prove invaluable. Between the two I should hit up the track when they open.

I will definitely post up any updates when they come,
