Poor man's EVO IMHO and not cool. My mate had one back in the 90's - it broke down with alarming regularity!
If you like it though, that is the main thing:icon_thumright:
Well your right they do brake down a lot , but i never met an evo that could beat it.
My mate had his pulsar 6 years and it only broke down twice,a dodgy connector on an injector and the synchro went for fifth gear.He sold it 2 months ago and wants another now.
I dont doubt there are plenty of evo's that would of beat his but we never found any that could,loads of fun but his brakes was terrible,not like yours.
For sure they are fast after investing some cash into them, But cool? surely not?!
ugly as sin but then who buys them on the way they look?i bought mine as for the money pretty much nothing can touch them.great cars.if you look after them they dont break much,mine was 315bhp and used every day with no big problems.
My mates was 356bhp and used hard everyday,sounded lovely.That was the car which got me into 4wd jap turbo cars.
Rare doesnt always mean cool, Metro's are thankfully rare!!
EVO 6 Makinen - Now thats a cool car IMO.
Dare I say it, but as fast as the Sunny is, it borders on chavvy!
its cool if you think that there was a hot hatch out there in 1990 that had 227bhp and 4x4 standard.its not as good as more modern evos but it is a lot older.
My mates bird wants him to sell his replacement for the pulsar,a Lexus SC430 and get another Pulsar too.
next door neighbour has one. They'll never be cool IMO, but fast and cheap you can't argue with.
Saw quite a few of these running around Leeds, the ones I saw sounded pretty loud! Anyways, what are the performance figures and running costs for them???
As far as I can ascertain;
Power : 220bhp
Weight : 1220kg
Power/Weight : 183bhp per ton
0-60 : 5.42
0-100 : 15.26
¼mile : 14.2
Term : 97mph
I think they're pretty cool
Cool in a Japanese 'Substance over Style' kind of way.
Not terribly fast though until you throw loads of money at them, I think a bit of the standard 220bhp gets lost in the 4wd system...
fit a bleed valve to up the boost to 1bar and fit an exhaust and you will see about 280-290bhp.thats good enough to get you to 60 in 4 dead and get low 12's on the strip if you know how to drive it.they dont cost much at all to get over 300bhp.
Whoa! Their pretty dam fast!
thats what i liked most about it and the fact most people dont have a clue what they are.
Just saying when they first arrived they were a bit over hyped, cost lots and quite a few were unreliable.
Still nice cars, also kudos to the Japanese designer that had the balls back in the late 80's to fit that bonnet scoop to a small Japanese hatchback!
I just sold my pulsar last week to buy my s3, i think there cool.
Yep, it cost me £50 for that!
Also got the forge fmic on without cutting the bumper out :)
i would not say no to 1.
i think there cool!
I think they are like all Japanese spiced up family cars....Un cool.
Ive owned one and it was an absolute nightmare!!!
I'll be honest they are fun, but stylewise?..............no! I would prefer an sti or evo getting speed and looks.
Pre-dates a lot of modern day bonkers jap stuff so not strictly a fair comparison with hardcore EVO/Imprezas.
Cool IMO, not sure why but cool none the less.
Nearly bought one instead of my first G60 Corrado.
Nissan was quicker, Corrado was better.
