Best year for an evo?
whats up guys im new to the evo scene and am looking to get my first one here pretty soon. i know i want a 03-06 but other than the appearance changes and other options like seats etc. is there a certain year that is more sought after than the others? does a certain year tend to make more power or have less failures than other years?
also are there any "weak" points with an evo?
-ive looked around and there doesnt seem to be many weaknesses other than a big need for an upgraded clutch which is common with most all cars.
any advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
ive also heard from a dsm friend to stay away from the mr models because the 6 speeds tend to have alot of problems, anyone care to elaborate on that? what usually fails?
Absolutely wrong. It depends on each individual driver and how they use their car. There are numerous 600+awhp MR's which have zero tranny issues. There are lesser hp ones with problems because of how they are used.
The thing is that there are a couple companies that do 5 speed tranny builds for people looking to abuse the car constantly.
Again, use the search button.
