With a motor now built to a level Eddie was comfortable with, he turned his attention to the rest of the car. Knowing how competent the stock Evo already is, he kept the build for the rest of the car fairly straightforward. The brakes are comprised of a lightweight Wilwood setup from AMS. Up front, this system features floating 11.75-inch vented rotors squeezed by fixed four-piston calipers, floating 11.5-inch rotors in the rear, and stainless steel braided lines.
A set of A'PEXi coilovers suspends the car atop GT7 wheels from Volk Racing, wrapped in BFGoodrich drag radial rubber. The suspension was fine-tuned by Eddie's friends over at Junior Tire & Accessory, and the end result provides stable, composed handling through any tight turns Orlando can throw at it.

If the plethora of graphics and sponsor logos adorning the yellow paint wasn't enough of a clue at this Evo's intentions, a quick peek around back at the Simmons parachute will get the message across. The interior is equally business-oriented, with a monster 10-point rollcage and a pair of Sparco harnesses strapped to the Ultra Shield aluminum seats. All of the safety equipment, including a full Sparco racing suit for the driver, came courtesy of Titan Motorsports. The Momo steering wheel and Auto Meter gauges also help to provide Eddie and Oscar with the right environment and information as they attempt to rewrite the laws of physics each time they mash the loud pedal to the floor.

At this stage you'd imagine Eddie would be satisfied with his car's current tuning level, but he promises much more to come in the not-so-distant future. He and Jonathan Hon at Titan Motorsports have already begun sorting out a turbo swap to a GT42R, and tuning wizard Rolo at Central Florida Turbo is also waiting in the wings, ready to get the new turbo setup running optimally. Eddie believes this is all it will take for his 3,240-pound daily driver to break the 8-second barrier. You can bet we'll be there reporting back to you when it happens. Until then, we recommend anyone stopping through Orlando to swing by Proccolino's Pizza to see this car for yourself, and enjoy a slice while you're there.
