Drove a Evo X MR tonight

It ran well, especially with 4 people in it. The S-sport function was fun, shifts were crisp and precise. Handled better then anything I have ever driven too. Just wanted to share.

PS. No one to "kill" though

No, it will last well longer than 100k. Those motors are built for turbo setups from the factory. It's the idiots that think they know how to tune a car or turn the boost up without adding fuel and tuning themselves that kill them quickly. Hell my built little 4cylinder lastest 4 years before it was stolen and then the motor was still running strong in some kids integra up in NY for awhile.
