2003 Mitsubishi Evo 8

There are only a few cars that come to mind when I think about our motto, "camber, stretch, poke, and low" -- although I can think of an endless amount of photos, videos, and cars in other states, when it comes to cars in Colorado that truly do our motto justice, I can only manage to think of a handful of cars, of which, Corey Englehardt's 2003 Mitsubishi Evo 8 reigns as near supreme.

Without a doubt, Corey has essentially built every hellaflush enthusiast's ideal concept of an Evo 8. Beginning with the stance, Corey opted for teal powder-coated 18x9.5 +15 MB Battles wrapped in perfectly stretched 215/35's and flushly dropped on BC Racing BR coilovers and -3 natural camber in the rear. Behind the aggressively concaved wheels are custom purple-painted calipers, accenting the extremely rare custom designed "HellaFlush" center caps -- of all the shows I have been to in both Colorado and California, I have only seen one other car in San Francisco (at WekFest) sport these same center caps. To top it off, Corey chose to lock his wheels in place with Muteki SR43 Neo Chrome locking lugs, matched to a Benen Limited Edition Neo Chrome tow hook. In addition, a pair of very rare C-West color-matched eyelids were attached to the headlights -- combined with a set of carbon fiber TCS Sportline side-view mirrors and a sticker-bombed Yakima roof rack, Corey's setup sits loud and parks hard with a very aggressive overall stance.

Underneath the bonnet, Corey continued his trend of installing the rarest parts by opting for an ARC Japan rainbow spark plug cover and APR carbon radiator cover. For added go, a set of HKS cam gears coupled with KHS 272 cams, a DNP header, HKS turbo-back exhaust, ETS full intercooler kit, Perrin fuel rail, Walbro 255 fuel pump, 1000cc injectors, and Turbo XS UTEC were installed.

Inside, you'll find an APR carbon arm rest, Proper+ teal bubble shift knob, Kenwood deck, Rockford Fosgate 500w amp, and a Rockford Fosgate 1000w P3 subwoofer in a custom vented box. And, as an addition to the overall aesthetic, Corey installed PIAA yellow plasma fogs, custom pink high beams, tinted tail lights and side markers, along with a Rexspeed Style 1 wing on the trunk (in supplement to the Evo's iconic park bench).

Bring all of these mods together and not only do you get a highly desired hellaflush Evo 8 but you get a rare combination of rare parts that work together in epitomizing the phrase "camber, stretch, poke, and low" in the best way possible: Corey's Evo 8 not only is a formulaic success but a car with truly Proper Form, built without any reservations or compromises, just the way we at ProForm like it.
