I've always wanted an Evo ever since they first came out unfortunately not able to afford one at the time. I am finally able to do so and have been approved for a loan but could use a little help.
I am not new to turbo cars as I've had a 04 SRT-4 with stage 2 with toys for the past 6 years but that I am looking to trade in and get something a little better. I know some of the basic signs and have read the this thread a few times to know what to look for in a stockish looking car. But the one I've been looking at is not stock.

I've been eying this car for the past couple days but am wondering if anyone here might be able to give me a little background on the vehicle as it looks like its had a bit of work. Everything looks in order from the pictures there might be things I could find when I take a look in person.

From the looks of it I can see intake, bov, IC piping, wideband, boost gauge, N20 gauge (if I am reading that right), obvious exhaust, I am guessing stock turbo since heat shield looks stock (not 100% on that), alarm system of some sort, interior looks great and mileage is great. Part of the reason I am kind of overlooking all the mods. It doesn't look like there are marks on the bolt heads for the heat shield. Also looks like it might be wired for a amp/sub?
Ideally I would like something fairly stock that would be my daily driver and something that can just get me over the mountain passes in the winter. Something I could do some minor bolt ons with.
Again just wondering if anyone has some background on the vehicle that could help me with.
Thanks in advance and at some point hope to make it out and introduce myself in person.
