Thumbs up My evo finally back on the road ....

After a long time without my evo(3months) due to engine failure, I finally got it back last weekend. I flew up to Sioux Falls, South Dakota where SSP performance's workshop is located. Kris picked my up from the airport and we went to their workshop. They are currently expanding their facility but even their current facility was very well kept. My car was the only car there apart from one of Kris's GT-R's. Dealing with Jeremy and Kris over the last 3 months was a pleasure and I'm happy my car's back on the roads. As of now my car is stock except for the new exedy stage 2 and pro-lite flywheel, I'm going to try and keep it stock for as long as possible but doubt that'll last very long.

once again...
Thanks a lot SSP performance, Jeremy and Kris....

Tell me about it.....The entire motor and trans was pulled, new clutch....and the OP's motor I found him only had 60 miles on it . I'm going to be driving my evo back home from Florida later this week/early next week, so it's good to know he made the long trip back.

It was a pretty crazy drive... 1100 miles and dint engage cruise control, trying to vary engine speeds the whole time.... killed my knee, but other than than was pretty good.
