Selling my Jeep Grand Cherokee and getting another Evo X. Unfortunately my old X was totaled in a hit and run a year ago. I've been missing it so i made the decision to get another with some mods already installed as my new daily.

I'm pretty sure i'm down to the car, going over the final details tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!

 

Mods on the car: 

Greddy Ti-C Racing Exhaust

AMS Mid-Pipe

AMS Downpipe

Cobb 3-port EBC

Cobb Accessport

AEM Boost

AEM A/F

CF Guage Pod

CF Cooling plate from APR

CF Lip

CF Canards

 

DynoJet 360-340 (Don't remember the exact numbers i was told, will find out)

 

I'm missing some parts but that's the meat. I'll post an update tomorrow.

Thanks. Tim they are really fun cars, pretty much a baby GTR. Perfect for a daily/track car that you can beat the hell out of without feeling guilty.

 

Anyway still waiting on the call from the dealer about pricing, they want 1.5k over book value. If I can't get them down a bit i'm going to pass and wait for Evo prices to drop even more.

They sent more photo's and a video. It looks pretty clean underneath. We agreed on a price of 23K OTD to New York, it's a little more than i wanted to spend but should be worth it.  Just need to sell/trade in the Jeep now. They might buy it, will know tomorrow.

 

If anyone in upstate NY wants a deal on a very clean 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee let me know  :)

If you can do a stick, I have a 2010 Evo on my lot (that a buddy traded in)

Already has an FP Red, Shep trans and transfer case, and an E85 tune.

I could take your Jeep on trade.

Thanks for the offer man, can't do stick anymore though. I'd take you up on that otherwise.

 

Might be passing on this X unless i can sell my jeep before it sells.

The first car sold over this past weekend. Bummer. But with that comes good news. I most likely will be trading my Jeep for an Evo X MR locally.

Going to check it out down at my local shop in a few weeks. 

 

The car has full bolt ons and a STM tune that made 317-312. It's not the best looking but it's a really good deal.

Never updated this thread. Ended up passing on getting another Evo X MR. Instead I picked up a 2012 Volkswagen GTI for a good deal that needed a bit of work. 

 

While the motor was being swapped I installed a bigger turbo and some bolt ons. Since then i've been breaking it in on a base tune. 

After 2000 miles I decided it was finally time for a protune. Got in contact with my friends tuner at Berg Racing in Webster, NY.

-Coincidentally he ended up being the only VW Cobb Protuner I could find in upstate NY!

 

Overall I'm very happy  with how the car came out. The handling and braking is amazing. The seats ..well, they are hands down the best i've sat in comfort wise.

Interior is plastic and cheap as to be expected with a car like this.. that being said it's still a step up from all the Evo's/STI's i've been in. It is FWD so that has it's downside but overall you barely notice.

As for performance...man is it a sleeper. I've let a few buddys who own evos/sti's etc. drive it and they were all caught off guard and fell in love. One of them actually picked up a brand new 2017 Golf R after  :P

It's hands down faster than my old Evo X MR with similar modifications/power. It's about 300-500lbs lighter which really helps. I wouldn't be shocked if it kept up or beat a stockish GTR.

 

Here's a full mods list and video of the car on the dyno:

 

Curb Weight: #2800-3100lb's (haven't got to a scale yet.)

 

93 260whp 300wtq (Roughly 280whp 320wtq) E30 280whp 330wtq (Roughly 300whp 350wtq) 

Both are corrected due to running AWD - 'Heartbreaker' Mustang Dyno

  • HPA K04 Turbo Kit
  • Forge Wastegate w/yellow spring (stronger recommended, limits my boost)
  • GFB DV+ 
  • COBB Accessport v3
  • COBB Big SF Intake
  • Full Catless Exhaust
  • R8 Coils
  • ECS Motor/Transmission mounts
  • Motul DSG Fluid
  • Motul RBF660 Brake Fluid
  • Motul Engine Oil
  • Upgraded Rotors/Pads
  • Sparco Assetto Gara 18x8 all around
 

 

It's going to be a very fun daily for the next few years!
