Project '00 Mirage
I have the opportunity to build up a race car/track car for the next 2 years on building it. I want to go with a 98-01 Mitsubishi Mirage 4-door and convert it to my favorite Evolution of all time, Evo V. I wont be able to go JDM or anything like that, but keep it to the style of the evo and have seen it done before, but the owner told me ten years ago, that it will cost you a total of around $10k to fully build it. I want to go with the Eclipse 97-99 GSX or Eagle Talon AWD setup and know what part of the car that will need fabrication to fit the rear axle setup. My neighbor has a 2000 Mirage that does not drive and in excellent condition and wants to sell it next month to me for $150 cause he cant stand fixing it. So for that much, I will take it!
Far as performance upgrades, I am new to the Eclipse and know some parts work, some parts break. Anyone here have experience with the 4g63 and what is best to build it besides lowering compression ratio and boring out the block? My goal is to hit just only 300hp/high 200 tq on 10-14 lbs boost and not sound like a fart cannon? I may go with a silent apexi catback to quiet it out and add a vibrant resonator along with it. Mainly just get the car to look similar to this:
