Well I wish I could afford all the flip flops parts and swaps.
But all I can say is be happy with what you got.

But if if you are truly unhappy go with the gut and get the civic.

i love both cars in fact i ahve spent many hours wrenching on both cars including a 95 gsx that ran 11's after we were done. over all i would say just keep the evo and use it as your track/fun car. and get a DD. there are guys making 900+whp now on AWD dynos thats 900+AWHP. you will be hard pressed to make any civic create that much power and it will never be AWD. if you are really stuck on a civic get a EG hatch and boost a b series. it would be much cheaper that a 7thgen and it has a huge aftermarket for CHEAP. much cheaper than the the k series. not to mention the price difference of a b series to a k series alone. for the $$$ factor the EG is a way better platform than a EM2. it weighs less too

Civic Love. That's all there is to it. Believe me, I'm annoyed by my managers cause they keep trying to get me to trade it in towards a WRX. I guess that's one downside to working at a subaru dealership where the sales are a little slow.

Hmm... with those mods on your car, you should be well into the 12's. I think it could be the 18's and that you do not have any engine management, or so it seems. Wouldn't a MBC and cam gears call for a tune anyway? Good pick up on ARC, I want ARC stuff too, but its just way too expensive. But, I would definitely not downgrade back to a FWD, because with all that power, there is a lot of loss of traction, and I doubt an LSD would fix all of it. By the way I do not drive a civic, and I am not a troll, my brother has a 2001 civic. Post up pictures when you can.

Nice!! It could just be the added diameter. So, stock wise, you are just 1 second slower than a fully built k20a- someone mentioned that. Once you get that reflash and tune, you will find a new, greater love for your car. Since you already have a good suspension, the next thing I'd do would be sway bars. They make a world of difference in response and feel. If you are ever down in the Torrance area hit me up, I really want to check out your car.

I think you should just trade me my car and $5,000 for your EVO. It already has awsome suspension. and runs low 14's/high 13's And its almost show ready minus a new paint job.

buy an f-150 lightning or a silverado SS. Maybe a Mustang GT, G35 or a GTO If you were bored with an evo I think its time to look at something all together different.
