Coming from owning a turbo'd Lancer, I myself would say I am not even an Evo fan. I think Subi put's together a better car.

Evo's are loud, handle rough, lots of wind noise, creeks, motor rattles. Seems more like a little boy's car to me. Not that my Lancer was any different, other than A LOT slower than an Evo.

I wouldn't say it's low, but it's definitely set up for boy racer in most of their cars. I test drove a lot of cars one of them being a newer Lancer and still felt the same.

Close to done with break in. Shooting for 425/425, should be right close to there on E85.
