Post Tracking down a 1994 evo reg L420WGP
Just wondered if anyone recognised this reg of a 1994 evo 3 reg is L420WGP the car has been scrapped as I have the engine and running gear in my car, realised it has a set of h.k.s cams in today so wondered if I could do a head hunt and find out the spec of the internals ect if they have been changed or just find out any interesting info, as I guess a previous owner must of been on this forum ? Thanks rob

Better off trying on Evo123.

Do you want me to repost it for you?

I bet Yan will know Andy (P.S.) Do you have a lower cam cover lying around that would do for Rob as he's after one?

Lol.
I already looked and sent him in your direction, as I thought you had so few unused engine parts.

Just a quick observation but tell me to bollox if I'm wrong

Isn't 1994 L an Evo 2

For instance

K EVO 1

L EVO 2

M EVO 3

Honest opinion!

That is a better engine as the original spec three pistons are prone to ring failure.

So, I would view it as a positive factor.
