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
Cobb 3-port EBC
CF Guage Pod
CF Cooling plate from APR
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.
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
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
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.)
