Darian Nielson: 2014 Mitsubishi Evolution X GSR

Darian Nielson has always loved cars. His first car was a convertible 1993 Toyota Celica GT. A year later, he picked up an Acura RSX Type-S and eventually supercharged it. "I also did a custom body kit, paint, and carbon fiber pieces," Nielson remembers. "That car was my baby and I never thought I'd sell it." He modified the RSX all on his own, except for tuning, including a few transmission swaps and the supercharger install.

In 2016 Nielson bought a stock 2014 Mitsubishi Evolution X GSR with plans to modify it. "I enjoy making cars my own and unique," he states. Currently, Nielson has modified his Evo in multiple areas, and enjoys learning and understanding exactly what is done to the car and how, and usually has some help from friends and family when needed. Inspiration comes from his desire to have something he enjoys and he tries to have and share something unique.
