I'm looking for a kit of a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (doesn't matter which one. Would prefer 6 or later though). All the kits I've found so far are curbside. My question is does anyone make an Evo with opening hood with a full engine? Thanks in advance for your help!

The only one I can think of is the Mitsu that came out in the "Fast and Furious" series. It comes as a full detail kit with straight six turbo engine.

Well that's a bummer. Guess I gotta track one of those kits down now. This should be fun. Thanks for your help George.

The F&F kit from AMT was an Eclipse, not a Lancer, but does include a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which is separately molded:

I have that kit that I built years ago. Also built the Supra but didn't do either in the movie style though. However this is the kit in looking for now-

Ah, I see. That kit has a separate, multi-piece engine, according to what I see here: http://www.wettringe...&threadID=20674
