Hello everyone,

my name is Jacqui and for those who know sir2J (silver aristo) I am his wife. I own a white ralliart colt 07 and love it!
The car has a few basic modifications - cat back exhaust, a FPV F6 front mount intercooler with custom piping, K & N filter with cold air fed (probably the most simple but effective mod!). Have previously owned a Nissan NXR with Forged SR20DET coupe that ran 13.4 @ 107mph on the t'ville track (loved that car as well), a suzuki swift (also a awesome car but needed more power) and a red MPS mazda 3. I also have a passion for rotors but am to impatient to own one... they can be temperamental! Bye.

Welcome jacqui! I love this little car! Dont be shy about posting up pics

Looks like you've owned quite a few nice rides there too. Have to agree with the comment on the swift, they should've come standard with boost

Welcome, yeh was good to see how well the old Colt Ralli-art's go, suprisingly quick.

I was going to buy one mid last year but was dealing with a 18yr old knob who worked at Mitsubishi with a boy-racer attitude trying to sell me the car for all the wrong reasons.... I took my money elsewhere and sort of am kicking not getting one now.... hmmm perhaps time to trade in the Focus.

They are a nice looking car and definately have some balls to go with...

Saw the car at the strip last night!!! My dream car used to be a Suzuki Mighty Boy... until last night I love you I wanna see pics!!!

If they would only come out of the factory like that, I'd have one in a snap! Are they hard to mod to your spec?

There easy!!!

Alot of people don't know that they have the exact same power/weight as a Focus XR5 and is 20% stiffer chassis then a EVO 9 making it the most stiffest chassis wise Mitsubishi ever made, It also Has much bigger brakes as well.
So it's not like a Normal COLT with a turbo.
I only have a cat-back Exhaust, K&N Filter in the stock air box with a 3" Cold Air pipe behind the front bumper.
Turbo Smart gated Boost Tee running 14-15psi (From 11psi stock) and a FPV F6 Intercooler as they flow VERY well and are cheap and you dont have to go cutting your bumper like with the off the shelf kits you can buy and thats it.
My Husband has had a EVO III and a EVO VI, I've always like the Mitsubishi's.
Here are some pic's.

Stock VS F6 Intercooler



Bumper support back on.

that's him. They swapped - his celica for the evo 6 + cash his way. Still needed a bit of work to get a good time. Good car but not what he was looking for. There is something about running awesome times on a street rego car that is so much more exciting then a drag time. My opinion anyways.
