if the dealer reflashes it, it will be set back to OEM spec so it will not account for any mods to your car especially not a fuel pump. Take it to a tuner or a local near you who is familiar with ecuflash. What are your mods right now?

if your timing jumped you may be shit outta luck. is this your first mitsu? They are known as valve benders. does you car sound horrible? if it jumped timing then you should pull the head and have the valves checked also see if the head itself is cracked. You are looking at destroying your whole motor if you run it even at idle. If you suspect the timing jumped have it looked at or have it towed to someone who knows what they are doing so it doesn't cost you even more money to fix.

also with those mods and the fuel pump once your car is fixed it needs to be tuned and it should run like a champ. Make sure you do basic maitence first like plugs and wires too so you can get the most out of it.

so at the worst id need to buy a new head? yeah this is my first mitsu ever before this i had an 06 sti and an 02 wrx, decided i wanted to try an evo, and well so far its been nothing but problems, though when it was running it ran very strong so i love them all 4 door turbo awd cars, would a cobb accessport do the tuning or would i need like a turboxs utec or aemems? im new to the whole tuning thing mostly ive just done intake exhaust and boost controllers, easy things

take your car to someone who knows about evos and have it checked out before you do anything. you will be lucky it all you need is a new head if it jumped timing.
