Looking forward to another pseudo homologation special

I currently have a supercharged FR-S and an EVO VIII. The EVO is about as close to a homologation special as the corolla. I've only purchased 1 new car for myself (several for my wife) and it was an SRT-4. Can't wait to get another as soon as they are available.

Here's some pics!

are you planning on selling the Evo?

Welcome!
Ohh! How's the numbers on that supercharged FR-S? I've always wonder what forced induction would do to those engines, but it's so hard to find people who have actually done.

Welcome!
Never again. I actually sold the one in that picture already, then purchased another one, same year, same color, same trim package. It's a lifer for me. It's actually the one in the background of the current SpeedAcademy videos on YouTube. I won their patreon pimp your ride contest. Can't wait to get it back and finish it up after they do whatever they are going to do with it.

I've not had mine on a Dyno but it's got the Edelbrock and E85. Should be somewhere around 330 wheel. It does OK. It's not the fastest car I've owned but it's a good time.

Just let me know, I'm interested lol

Beautiful looking Evo and FR-S @RobEVO! welcome to the forum! Are you thinking of keeping the GR Corolla stock or making some mods to it?
Welcome aboard! Loving both vehicles

Probably some mods but not for the first year or so to let the reputable shops get stuff sorted. If I get a very early allocation I'll offer it to the SpeedAcademy guys to check out but I'm in a small market. I'm probably going to have to wait... in theory I would limit mods to induction and exhaust depending on what the car likes. I'll probably stay stock turbo though. I love the way a full bolt on stock turbo car usually feels.

In a similar boat. I bought my FoST well after all the testing had been done and we knew exactly what made the car tick, so doing mods was easy. On the GRC, I'll probably wait and let other people break their cars first. Lol.
Beautiful Evo dude, I don't think I'll ever get one but always been a car I've wanted (my NFS Underground II nostalgia would also warrant a XIII like yours). Glad to hear this one is a lifer, don't ever sell it.
Beautiful cars! I see/hear this Evo VII drive down my street sometimes and I run to the window like a dog does when the owner gets home. Glad you’re hanging onto this one!
