    I had a 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage ES.... In 2006 about I swapped a EVO III motor and transmission into it... Well not me personally but a well known JDM tuner in the Orlando Florida area... It was lots of work but not crazy difficult work because it was done before estimated due date... I'll just say it was a rocket ship... I stripped all the badges off the Mirage and put the Jap-Spec badges of the Mitsubishi Cyborg on it... Years later put the JDM stock headlights and really never touched it. Had from 2001 - 2015 with 9 years or so with swapped motor... Never showed off or opened the hood a lot I didn't want to wake up and it be gone stolen like so many of my friends Honda SI.... God so many memories in that beast

    The first time I met an Evo was when I was going through a small underpass tunnel and shots start shaking my GTI. Bewildered, I look around and see an Evo rolling up on my right. It was beautiful.
