Blew By You

Whether it be GTR’s to Brian O’Conner or Eleanor to Memphis Raines, we all have our one specific car that hits us right in our soft spot. Having been inspired early on in 2004 when a BR330 Evo first crossed his path, Branden instantly knew the Blue By You Evo VIII was his unicorn.. and the hunt was on.

Finding a car that you can call “the one” is very tough. As one, two, and more years passed, Branden masked his true passion by building a B5 Passat Wagon in the mean time. With a 3′ trophy and a feature article by Canibeat to show for his craftsmanship on his B5, it just wasn’t enough. There was something missing.. he realized he had chosen lust over love; The Passat just wasn’t his unicorn. After A LOT of deep searching, a little luck, and a one-way flight to Ohio.. he proudly presents us his Blue By You Evo VIII.

Bitches love sunset dates.
Strapped down, caged in, and ready for launch.

The angle how most drivers see 426 unicorns.
Says he’s at the track.. Tells him he’s drunk.

Branden’s first motor build included some hefty mods; crankshaft, pistons and rods, valves, and a dual ball bearing turbo. Unfortunately it was short lived as tragedy struck. A spun bearing sent a few valves into places that no other valves have ever been. Determined for power, Branden planned his second motor build with bigger and better parts. With the help from the good folks at DynoTech Tuning, the Evo is now a 426awhp beast.
Branden has told us many stories of good times and bad times with his Evo. Stories of experiences that made him that much more attached to his car. “This car is far more than a material possession to me. It is physical proof of my hardships, my successes, my friendships, countless memories, and my empty bank account.”. He constantly aims to improve his Evo and has hinted us with a very impressive mod list for 2014. We, and most everyone, will be patiently waiting!
