Sleeping Evolution

6

A couple of weeks ago, I had a chance to visit FFTEC Motorsports located in Hayward CA. I was told about their 10 second Evolution and decided to do a little investigating. Since I have never seen this Evo, I was expecting to see a fully caged, race ready beast. I arrived and saw this Evo parked up front and to be honest, I was some what skeptical. At first glance, it looked like any other Evo you would probably see on the street. It was clean, lowered, and had a nice set of wheels on it. William K, the owner, invited me on a ride along before we even started shooting. I gotta tell ya, after about 10 minutes flying around the backroads of Hayward, all skepticism was erased. I was thrown so hard into the seat that I felt sick for a second. We pulled back into the shop and I was nothing but smiles, giggling like a school girl. It is definitely a sleeper!


We popped the hood and I was blown away by the amazing work these guys put in to building this engine. They machined many of the parts themselves and the craftsmanship was superb. The 2.0 L engine was equipped with Race Engineering heavy duty rods, Wiseco 9.0:1 compression pistons, ACL race bearings, Koyo half core radiator, Supertech valvetrain and valves, and a FFTEC V3 intake manifold. The turbo system included a HKS intercooler, FFTEC intercooler piping and FFTEC front facing turbo kit with a Borg Warner EFR 8374 Turbo. This Evo is pushing out about 650HP and 505TQ.




The fuel system consisted of FIC 2150cc injectors, an HKS fuel rail, Walbro GSS342 in tank pump, -6 fuel line, Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator, FFTEC speed density conversion kit and FFTEC in line fuel pump kit. The interior and exterior of this Evo looked great. It was rolling on a set of Advan RS wheels on HKS Hipermax II coilovers. The suspension also included a full Cusco under brace kit, Cusco trunk bracing, Cusco ladder brace kit, Whiteline roll center adjusters and adjuster kit, and a Hotchkis rear sway bar. What makes this build even more awesome is that there is a full custom stereo system built into the trunk.






I want to thank everyone at FFTEC for the hospitality and I am glad I had a chance to check out the shop along with the awesome rides that were in that garage. If anyone would like to contact FFTEC or check them out, click here.

    FFTEC is a great place. Sean tuned my E85 IX and did a great job! I recommend them to anyone. They care about you and your vehicle.
