Evo VI – For Sale – Sold

Evo ownership has been awesome but I’ve owned the Evo for over 5 years now and it’s time to move on. I’ve done plenty to it in that time from simple maintenance to power upgrades. It’s slowly become better and better but now I’ve sort of run out of things I want to do to […]

Evo VI – More Cavity Wax

I did a load of cavity waxing before but it was a bit awkward with the car on axle stands. Now I have much better access underneath I thought I’d go finding all the holes I could to fill with Noxudol 700 cavity wax. This is a messy job so I only took a few […]

Evo VI – New Koyorad Radiator

The Evo has only ever let me down once before when the bottom aux belt pulley failed. Well this was the second time. The radiator sprung a leak! It’s either a total coincidence or is something to do with being drained and refilled when I did the timing belt and water pump. Either way it […]

Evo VI – More Engine Bay Tidying

(First posted on MLR forum in July 2016) Wing bolts always looked untidy so got some of these. Freshened up the inner wing paint with some of this. Bit of paint under the original washer to stop it rusting. More gold. Should help inlet temps a bit as both the pipes I’ve wrapped are the […]

Evo VI – New Rod Ends

(First posted on MLR forum in July 2016) Spotted a slight amount of play in the drivers side rod end at MOT time. Went to buy a replacement and buying a pair wasn’t much more than buying just the one so I got a pair. I figured it will mean needing to do the tracking […]
