Introducing another one of my dream cars.
After trying to purchase this JDM Tommi Making Edition Evo VI from the previous owner for over 1 year, he finally sold it to me last Sunday, February 4th, 2018. I was very excited to finally drive it home.

I took it to have a roadworthy inspection the following day as I only had a 1 week registration permit. It passed inspection fine and it was soon registered in my name. I transferred the “JDM” plates from my daily to this new project.

Here is a photo after I screwed on the new plates, outside the DMV.

Image

The car is completely stock apart from a 3” turbo back stainless exhaust, a boost gauge and a dash mounted “LED Shift Light”. The car does need some tidying up, detailing and servicing but it is very clean and rust free. “Tommi” was complied in Australia 04/2008 so its been on salt free roads in Australia for the past 10 years where it was always garaged and has only travelled 33,000kms or 20,500 miles. The car dealership decal on the rear bar shows it was originally sold by Mitsubishi only 27km from the centre of downtown Tokyo at this dealer http://www.urawa-higashi-mitsubishi-motor-sales.com which is probably why there is no rust under the car, as it was not near the snow. From the clutch pedal feel it tells me the clutch has been replaced with a firmer aftermarket clutch and there are spanner marks on the bell housing bolts which reinforces my thoughts.

I have purchased a set of Timing Belt assistance tools from STM Tuned Inc and I’ve ordered all the timing belt pulleys, bolts, belts, seals, water pump etc from Japan. The engine sounds very good and has done approx 92,000Kms or 57,000 miles verified through the “Japan ODO Check” service. The car was complied in Australia in 04/2008 almost 10 years ago and garaged in Canberra the past 5 years.

But while waiting for that important stuff to arrive I have collected a few parts to install on the car and I’ll continue on another few jobs that need to be done.

All vehicles in Japan are require to carry a safety flare but it is removed before transporting the cars to Australia or when going thru the compliance process in Australia. I’m not sure which. So I had to replace it with the deluxe model safety flare which also has a window smashing spike on its base.

Flare with cover:

Open and ready for action!
