Looking to become an owner of a 2008 EVO X GSR tomorrow (CL ad posted below). I stopped at the dealer tonight and looked at it, and it looks clean. Low miles and some mods. While looking I wanted to address some issues with an EVO crowd to get an opinion as to if it looks legit, or is something I should stay away from.
>>08 MITSUBISHI LANCER EVOLUTION***PERFORMANCE UPGRADES***LOW MILES
-It's the lighter of the silver colors.
-Pretty sure it has Rota Grids with new-ish Yoko Neova tires.
-It's a smaller dealer, and the guy "seemed" pretty honest. He said it had a CEL because it had no cats. After doing some research, it seems like a legit answer.
-Has a synapse BOV, and an ETS intercooler and the IC piping. couldn't tell if the piping was the ETS kit or not
-Couldn't see much from the top, but it had an aftermarket exhaust manifold with a full exhaust.
When I started the car it idled great and revved evenly and sounded healthy. The guy said it was fast and I assume it's been tuned with all the bolt-ons. During the test drive tomorrow morning, I am going to see if it's cool to take it to autozone to get the code read, So I can know if its the cats.
By the miles and price, it's a pretty good deal from a dealer in this area. But does this seem like a decent, trouble free car? what should I look for during the test drive?
I really appreciate any feedback/advice I get in advance to driving/buying this car.
Thanks, and I hope to become a part of this forum!
