What’s the 411

Thursday 19 April, 2012 | By Ken

“Info” as he is known on the streets of NYC bought his EVO a few years back with the intentions of having fun, and getting some spirited driving in. But what had started as an innocent purchase of a vehicle he adored has turned into something so much more. As some of you may know, the car culture of New York is diverse, but one particular sub-culture that is as old as blacktop streets in New York City is cars driven to win. On the streets of Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island, Info has earned his rep and handled his business.

SNTRL photographer, Josh Balduf caught up with Info recently and went to work on capturing the essence of this street/daily driven, race-ready EVO.

Unlike many Features you will find on the interwebs that profile what makes a vehicle look good, the BULLIT life is more about what makes the vehicle “go” and the people behind it because when it comes to true driving competition, a vehicle is nothing without those individuals that put their blood, sweat, tears and skills into play. In this case. Info’s EVO is all business.

The “Infomous” 4G63 is known for its tune-ability, and high-horsepower capability. In this case, Info’s EVO is 550+ whp on low boost with a nice diet of corn. Although we would love to give exact numbers, streets are watching.

Quartermaster twin disk | custom built Buschur trans | Mishimoto half with radiator | Spoolin COP | AEM boost and aem afr gauge | stock ecu speed density tuned | Hallman boost controller | custom 3′ turbo back straight pipe

Race-prep is about more than just power. Weight-savings is a huge factor for both cutting time and promoting a healthy reliable build. In this case, Info went all out with the Carbon Fiber bits.

On the inside, it’s all about driver’s domain. For daily driving, Info uses a ARC shift knob, but its the little things that count, and when its time to run, he switches it up with a Greddy counter-weight shift knob for smoother shifts under pressure.

Money from his crew can be found randomly within the interior for good luck; saved from when he was first purchased the EVO. Superstitious or not, Info has enjoyed his fair share of wins.

Wheels and tires with a purpose….TRACTION. In this case, Info’s gotta step up the game because he lights it up straight through third gear.

“Objects in mirror are losing”.

This EVO is always flying low.

Build it right, and you will have a challenge-ready beast on your hands. If you think you are up to the challenge, lock it the F*%k up.

For all those old school NYC heads, this Brooklyn spot was always packed before a big run.
