Redneck: I didn't put anything on so there is room to take it off. And mod my way.

Snow should be great with the awd.

If the car looks stock that is a BIG problem. Most of the cars I see with that many miles on them that are stock have been modded, and de-modded. I got your PM about that cat, my guess is the previous owner was running catless (as do I) and the dealer put it back on. It probably was tuned for less backpressure, and not retuned to stock. I would not boost too hard until that is solved because you might get some knock. First step is that we need to get a base tune back in it and then actually figure out what is modded/demodded. I can't chat too much right now because I have to work on removing some tumble geo valves from an STI. I'll hook up with you later.

I bet the intake is causing your idle problem. HKS intakes have a tumble'ing effect near the maf and things get very screwey. (They sound very cool though) This is why I went with the ETS intake. If the idle is dropping so low that your oil pressure is falling that is very bad. The stock intake dosent need to be changed until 300whp or so. A stock VIII is normally 220-240whp

You know that thing on the back is bigger than the horizontal stabilizer of a small aircraft.

I'm not afraid of owning a vehicle that has 100k+ on it, hell, I bought my 2000 with 170k miles on it, and its still probably one of the best vehicles I ever owned. That thing was awesome. Anyways,.. I'll stop now before I start to go down memory lane and tear up... :(

It makes a big difference when the wind tries to pick the car up at about 130+

I drove a wingless car doing some logging and tuning above 130 scared the hell out of me.

Idle problems? Could it be the bov on the car? Is it recirculated back into the intake?

Honestly I know little about evos motors and I will soon start too learn. But jp7 what are thought on not getting idle to throw low oil pressure?

Also I looked at a closed box intake for the evo what is your thoughts there? I think its apexi?

A simple tune up wouldn't hurt. The plugs will tell you what's going on.

You need to put the factory fenders/bumpers back, take off the sideskirts, lower it will some and put a nice set of wheels/tires on it. You could probably find someone on some forum who would trade you the bodywork.
