Hey guys,

Just wondering who has made the switch from an evo to a galant vr4?...or any other newer sports car/sedan.... in my case it was financial reasons..most people go the other way, but I'm sure there are a few, right?

I went from a gvr4 to an evo and then I had another vr4 between about 6 evo's now I would never own another vr4 unless it was 100% stock but evo is a go cart and gvr4 is the rms Titanic just sayin...
Not to mention a source of constant break downs but I still have love for some odd reason.

Haha...talk about perfect timing...

I went from DSM and VR4 to Evo X. I still have both the VR4 and the Evo X and love both but have decided to sell the Evo as it will allow me to be debt free in 6 months (minus the house)

I will miss the evo, but being debt free should make up for it. Unfortuanelty the Vr4 needs about $3k to bring it back to nice DD standards.

I had both and sold the Evo. There are lots of them.

I am big into recycling though and if your not into sacrifice or burnt offerings, you may want to stick with 93 octane.

06 STI with 24,000 miles to a 1991 gvr4 with 141,000 wow what a change. Miss the subie but the vr4 has so much more character.

2gnt dsm to gvr4 to Classic Galants. Still got all my parts for the next vr4 I get, must be rust free! Probably will never own a Evo, maybe just snag the motor off one.

Had a 2g GS-T Spyder that I passed on my wife and I got 2005 Sti that I bought new in 2004. Bought a 1g GSX and I bought a VR-4 about 3-4 years ago. I sold the STi 2 years ago, sold the 1g GSX, bought a 2g GSX, Sold my VR-4 to my friend in November and I picked another VR-4, sold the 2g GSX earlier this year and bought and Evo IX. Current cars are Galant VR-4 and the Evo IX. I would love to also still have an STi but I HAVE to have a sunroof so I decided to try out the Evo with the SSL package. Both cars are keepers for some time. Down the line I may want another 2g GSX.

I traded my Evo plus cash(on the buyers end) for my Galant, and then proceeded to dump almost every last dollar i got from the Evo into the Galant. I had my Evo for about 3-4 years and was just sick of seeing them pop up everywhere. I have yet to see a single Galant in the Detroit area...I just cant wait to finish the damn thing.

ive owned a 92 gsx, donated it and got a 96 gsx, crashed, rebuilt and then sold and bought 352/1000. 10k later with problems still arising, a second motor and second trans since ive owned it and i still love it. I really wish i had an Evo though, Driving my step brothers Evo IX and my younger brothers WRX Wagon makes me feel weak.......I wish I had a newer car though lol.

Well, I am glad I am not by myself. But wow do I miss my evo x. It is not even fair to compare the two cars because of the 20yr gap but I have invested over 2k in the car already half of it maintenance, the other half laying a foundation for a 20g. I don't see light at the end of the tunnel yet....but I am not giving up!

yeah man, dont give up. 2K isnt that much for these cars. for some people 2k is just the turbo alone.

Quoting FavNumber:

I want a X





The X is not an Evo IMO - no 4G63, no care.
Plus it's a fuckin' behemoth - abandoned the rally roots and is more like a grand touring saloon if you ask me.
Last true Evo was the XI.

Typical opinion of the x, but my x whooped on plenty of ix's in its day...some on e85...potential is there in the 4b11

Ok, I have owned 11 GVR4's and 5 Evo's (on the 5th one now) - So, I can speak plainly about this subject

The Evo is far far superior which it should be coz it is an evolution after all (pun intended). The gvr4 is a cool sleeper and definitely rarer has positive attributes, but the Evo is definitely stronger from factory, far more capable and the 4g63 in it can take some serious punishment.

Now on to the Evo X, no matter that its not a 4g63 - the 4B11 is a terrific motor. AMS did a teardown and showed where all its been strengthened. I talked to Jon at TRE and he said his tranny and rear diff teardowns also show where its been improved and made stronger.

October 2011 - Car and Driver - The Evo X MR T won the best handling car out of 6 cars. The Evo will always have its downside of shoddy interior and rough ride, mitsu paint quality etc, but it still does what its know to do best. The Evo X is referred more than once in many mags as to being a mini-GTR which I think is a compliment

The gvr4 will always hold a special place in my heart, great cars for their time and definitely cooler and rarer etc. I would own another completely stock one someday thats not rusted and rotted, if I could.
