Default this sucks

well some of you might know already but i might aswell break the bad news to ppl. the other day i blew the motor on the evo. i am not selling parts, or demodding. i am returning it to stock to see if mitsu will warrenty. but if not i will fix it myself. if that is the case i will be going 2.3l storker with a gt35r. it would be cheaper than telling mitsu to get it working. so yall watch out ill be back.....................sooner than later also the bottle will be going in the car aswell if i build it myself. around a 75 shot.

Dude that bites...I'm getting a little hesitant to mod my Evo now. Numes, Kilani, Yours...have all blown there motor, or something went wrong w/ the engine. What's up w/ the 4G63 powah?

Hope everything turns out for the better, Sam!

I was thinking the same thing. It just makes it harder for others to try and get honest warranty work.

Well, Nume had a ton of mods done to his car. I'm not surprised if something went wrong. Sam on the other hand I'm really sorry to hear that man. It really sucks

not to flame on evos..their monsters of cars.. but this is where the reliability of a Subaru comes in for holding things better... I keep reading on our general forum of how after a short period of time the Evo's motor starts to really break down. Compared to subaru motors lasting a longer amount of time.. However after an enormous amount of applications like Nume and all.. I wonder how subarus hold..but i do hear more mitsubishi motors going out than subarus

(but this is a subaru board so people with Evos possibly see differently)

Nothing wrong with modding the Evo. As long as you don't "drive like you stole it" mentality you'll be fine. Slipping the clutch on an AWD is safer than just dropping it like its hot... . I think I need to replace my front driver strut though.

still sucks. all you can do is try and see what they say. but doubtful it'd be a warranty fix more than likely. i'm sure there are plenty of mitsu techs that read forums like the subie crew does here. good luck sam!

Yeah I would agree on them reading that.. Sam is very well known especially sense the 12.4 run from last year.. Being one of the fastest Evo's in town spreads like a wildfire. I talk to Sam about people in my school who talk about him, and he has no idea who they are. So no dout mitsubish probably already has on file that he has gone quite hard on the car.. Good Luck Sam.. Just have to kiss alot of a** when you get their probably..

Yeah, I don't even know what really happened, but if it is a Rod that went. What would cause that to go...ah well I can research it.

But I know how it goes, you pay to play. Look at me...my broken trannies .

Like I said, I hope Nume's and Sam's car comes back to life soon!
