I currently own a 2001 Toyota Celica with a few mods and am looking to sell it here soon and purchase an evo. I was looking at the 05 Evo 8 MR, will be mostly race geared and garaged during winter. Any input on a few first mods for under 2k would be great. Can't wait to join the Evo club!:dsm:

Welcome abord. :thumb:
Mod input for under two grand (opinions will vary, and if you can install stuff)...
1. Turbo back exhaust (TBE)
2. Boost controller manual or electric (MBC/EBC)
3. Fuel control (or some type of flash if your scared to tune)
4. Cams

Here's my suggestion for the most power for the least money at first:

Warrtalon Stage 2

Then, since you have money to spare before reaching $2k, add a set of cams and ARP head studs along with a reflash (or do it all at once and get flashed once).

Ya I am still just coming out with different plans for what I want to do, depending on what I get and how much money I have left over. Thanks to everyone for all their input though!

Just a suggestion. The 05 MR is great, but have you looked into the IX's? They're making amazing power with only a few mods. I had a choice of buying an SSL 05 Evo 8 or for 2Gs more, getting the IX. I thank God everyday I chose the IX. Like I said, just a suggestion...
