| I'll do a complete and extensive video once the swap is completed, discussing anything and everything there is to know about the swap. Also, I got the steering wheel from an Evo 6. They can easily be sourced in the UK on eBay motors.|
Since my last update:

Hah! I was just thinking that we havent heard of you and your car lately. A refresh later... there you are!
So youre definitely going the authentic Evo route?

So you're really almost done with this thing. SHIET

All that is left now, body-wise, is to source an OEM Tommi Makinen front bumper. As seen in previous photos I already have the OEM side skirts and rear flares to finish the bodywork. Also a little update on the rear floor, not much though. I have already removed a significant amount of waste metal, but there is still a lot of work left before I can install this into my chassis.

I'm likely going to rebuild it before installing, just to be safe. More updates coming soon!

To my knowledge this will be the only Evo 6 TME conversion in the United States. I know at least three TME's are here in the US, but they were imported and are very grey market.

Might test fit the rear floor later, weather permitting.

Also what diffs is the car running? What ratio? I'm assuming the rear has an LSD. Does the front have an LSD or is it open?

...rear end swap is complete, just need to bolt on my exhaust and wheels then it's back on the road.

As for value, these never really go up on the US market. If I had to put a number on it though, I would say around $20k. I do want a different car down the road, but depending on my financial situation I may or may not sell this.

If you want it tolerable to drive, just run 3", a bottle resonator, and some type of magnaflow. Seems to be what the STI guys around here run. You don't need a cat on something that old do you?

And why'd you take the rear flares off?

Added a genuine front bumper and installed the skirts and rear arches. Bodywork is complete, now I just need to have it all painted.

What is left on the shopping list before you can take it to paint?
