If you’ve been following this column, you’ll remember a very flattering article last month about the Mitsubishi EVO VIII MR, with an evaluation of its potential for racing action with the SCCA. Well, we’ve taken a step further into this racing discussion, and – this time – we got hooked. Last February, we began a discussion with Don Dirito of Dirito Brothers Nissan, VW, and Saab in Walnut Creek and Concord about the possibility of racing a Track model 350Z with support from their dealership. While we have a very high degree of respect for the EVO, when it comes to racing, there is just something about a traditional, normally aspirated, rear wheel drive two-seater sports car.

The K04 kit comes with everything you need (except tools). Every gasket, nut, bolt and screw that is removed in order to get the K03 off and the K04 on is supplied within the kit.
