One issue that should be considered especially as miles are put on these cars is carbon buildup. The extra rich condition built into the fuel map will certainly cause carbon buildup and resultant detonation. Talons had this problem so bad that Mitsubishi put out a combustion chamber cleaner kit with special solvent to run through the motor on an as needed basis.

If you dog the car a lot expect it to get worse even quicker, you really need to wind out these turbo motors on a regular to keep things clean, babying em is not going to be good for them but rather detrimental IMO.
