Just got my 03 EVO 8 for $14,500. Came with a few mods already. Cat back exhuast, also believe cat has been punched thru, CEL keeps hauniting me. Pretty sure ECU has been flashed, curious to find out any suggestions? Three pod gauges, I get the impresion from the threads these are not very acurate especialy the air/fuel ratio.
Had some interesting brake issue's that i dealt with the dealer/warranty on. They replaced ABS "brain", they replaced some kinked line's, rotor's calipers and pads. Had the car a few weeks then they got to replace the master cylinder, I had to go with an after market as the factory was back ordered for weeks. Hope this doesnt come back to haunt me. Oh they also got to replace the rotor's and pads again.
I plan to make some more minor mod's, like a boost controller, new gauges. I'm then, well sorta clueless. I hear upgrading the BOV is a nice touch, but afraid that is a little out of my skill level, will read up some more on that. What do you guy suggest?
I am not after the fastest ride, just one that purr's like a..... well a nice EVO. LOL.
I love this car, it's by far a huge upgrade from my 99 caviler.
. Any starting point suggestions, referals to a good shop in northern colorado would be awesome.
Well off to read the threads to see what i can learn.
