Due to some changes in my life in the past year I am going to have to sell my Evo. I love this car and I'm sad to see it go. The handling is so amazing and sharp even compared to other Evos, the power speaks for itself and its been very reliable in my ownership.

I bought this car with the intent of road racing it. Redline Time Attack and that sort of thing. I built it to that end. I had a dramatic change of life and I don't have the vacation and I'm not in the country enough to pursue road racing the way I wanted so I'm selling.

I don't know how many Evo's there are in the US with this flexfuel setup. Maybe none. People familiar with many many Evo's have driven this car and said that the handling is sharper and faster than any other Evo they've driven. The handling characteristics are highly tunable with the suspension modifications listed. I've got it dialed in the way I like it.

I barely ever drive it. Its not my daily driver. I never did get to road race it. I've autocrossed it a handful of times.

I'm asking $20k for it.
I'm willing to trade Evo + cash for a Exige S, 240 or 260 but I'd have to sell my Subaru too, which I do plan on doing so it'd get complicated.

PM me if interested. I'll be glad to answer any questions you have.

This car is true flexfuel. It has an alcohol content sensor and automatically adjusts the tune for alcohol content. You can put E85 in it, E98, pump gas (93) or any mixture thereof and it will adjust for it.

The turbosmart EBC is installed but not being used. The Haltech is controlling boost.

The Braille battery kit is installed but the braille battery is not. I have a full size battery in the trunk. A Braille battery can still be used if you wish.

Will it pass an OBD2 smog check?
I dont know, it depends on your state's procedure.

If they only do OBD2 then no because it has an aftermarket ECU that won't communicate with their software.

If they are willing to do a sniff test..maybe. E85 burns very clean and it does have a cat so it might pass with better numbers than a completely stock Evo.

In some states smog testing can be avoided by getting collector plates.
