Re: EVOs - anyone?

Plenty of V8 cars around in the UK to be honest. Just most of them are silly merc's or audi's. Can get what you would call a Holden V8 as well just it doesn't have Holden badges here. Don't see many of them about though

Re: EVOs - anyone?

I wonder if I could get another 4A30 engine from the Pajero and fabricate some kind of mad 1.3l V8, lol

Re: EVOs - anyone?

standard ones aren't really that fast (in a straight line) in the grand scheme, its just the way they go around corners.. My old cinq turbo could keep up with one (in a straight line) upto 100-110mph, and was a hell of alot more exciting haha. Perhaps not the newer ones now they aren't power limited like all older jap cars were... Is it 276bhp they all used to be limited to?

Plenty of V8 and V12 Luxobarges over here...

Mostly Jags, BMW's, Range Rovers and Mercs mind you. I got overtaken by a Ferrari 599 yesterday on the motorway yesterday....

The sound from the exhaust!!!

Re: EVOs - anyone?

the cinq has been dead for quite some time, i have a seicento turbo these days, amongst other things

but here's the thread from when i bought the cinq..
http://fiatforum.com/cinquecento-sei...f-my-face.html

and here's what i think is the most recent thread on the seiT, it really needs updating tbh though.

its great to drive, for comfort/nice driving car its nothing compared to my old bmw 330ci, but the handling/power is much better than any other car iv ever driven, and obviously it is much more comfy/nicer driving than any fiat iv driven, and iv driven alot!

but how a car drives doesnt really mean how 'good' it is, my nissan pulsar was a nightmare to drive, it sat outside most days while i drove my punto but it was by far the most powerful and best car i have owned, the evo is just much more civilised car while still being nearly as mad.

What about the 6? It's the 7-9 which had the "toned-down" looks as standard, but there's plenty of parts to change that.

sammclean23- it's only the late 9's that had the stupid 400+ tax band. Earlier models were much more reasonable.
