My Primera has recently died in a horrific accident. Basically, a dude in a BMW X5 drove into me and ripped my back end off. :shifty:

Anyway, i'm looking into getting a new car. While another Primera is still and option, i'm looking round at others. Do you guys get many FTOs in America? I'm taking one out for a test drive tomorrow, and if I like it I might just buy it...

Most of them over here are Jap imports. It's a 2.0 V6 with MIVEC engine technology (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing-and-lift Electronic Control system). It basically adjusts the valve timing to give you quicker, smoother gear changes. They have about 200bhp and should be pretty cool, i'm quite excited!

I'm also on the scout for Primera GTs... but nice ones are hard to find these days.

get the turbo charge one
The FTO did not come turbocharged stock. They came in 1.8L, 2.0L and 2.0L MIVEC. More than a handful of them have been boosted though. :naughty:

I don't believe they are allowed to be imported into the US for street use. I know of one guy that imported a GR in SoCal for autocrossing. If you want more info on them...

This site has a lot of info that you can take a look at.
