Default High Mileage Evo VIII Build

Bought this Evo about 8-9 months ago. It had 172k miles when I picked it up which spooked me a bit. The seller was also the widow of the original owner, so she really knew nothing about the car or any maintenance history or anything. Do I buy this one-owner, completely stock, never modified but high mileage Evo for a decent price ($11k) or hold out for one that has been tastefully modded with lower miles?

I just rolled over 181k miles and the car has been fantastic and a blast. Like I said, 100% stock when I picked it up. I kept it stock for about 6 months/6k miles. This allowed me to really get a feel for the car and get comfortable with it while stockpiling parts and figuring out the route I wanted to go.

I've installed the following so far:
Megan Downpipe
Megan Test Pipe
Tsudo Catback
XS Power o2 dump
Blox drop-in filter
Prosport Boost Gauge
AEM Wideband
Evo Scan

Awaiting Install:
Walbro 255lph Fuel Pump
FIC 1120cc Injectors
Grimspeed 3port EBCS

Going to get tuned within the next month. Probably go with a dual tune for E85 and 91. Or may just do E85 only but this is my daily and if I ever take it out of the city I may want to flash a 91 map. I'll be discussing with my tuner. Unfortunately flex fuel isn't an option.

This has probably been my favorite car I've had to date. I'm so glad I got away from the junky Subarus. I loved my bugeye WRX before it got stolen but everything else I had Subaru wise was shit. Trying to keep it pretty modest for now, no more than 400whp. If she holds up for the next year or so, I'll look into cams, bigger turbo, new FMIC, etc.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Well done picking that up.

How many of your junky Subarus were one owner and bone stock? That makes a hell of a difference!
Ancient Astronaut Theorists say YES!
