The Problem Free Thread
Being that we're on a car forum, it's common for people to come here and ask for help with their car problems. A newcomer can easily get scared away from the Evo X by all the problems they've read about. I thought it would be a nice change of pace to have a thread about all the people who DON'T have problems.
So, who hasn't had any issues? Be sure to include things like mods, how many miles you car has, etc.
P.S. - Issues with things like TSBs, paint chipping, fuel relays, and fuel pressure regulator hoses flying off are common and to be expected.

No problems here! *knock on wood* Just the oil pump whine, which is annoying, but not really a problem. Stock motor / stock clutch still....37k miles. Most of those miles were at about 350whp on stock turbo. Last 3k have been at 420whp on the EF3

Wish I could join the the club, had a sparkplug bow up at 7k. The caramic core fell down blocking the tip of the plug.
I know the pieces fit.
