Brian Engstrom: 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution

Brian Engstrom bought the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in 2013, and after a week of owning it he was running on E85 and put an exhaust system on. As it sits now, the Evo is fully built and makes over 750 whp.

"My car was the dual clutch SST transmission," Engstrom mentions, "and I converted it to a manual transmission." He kept the paddle shifters in the car for nostalgic reasons.
