SS-to-EvoX Why do you regret your X? I have one but I can't find any regrets about it.

XaviEvo Get the GSR! I have had my GSR for 2 years now with no issues at all have about 34k and still running strong. The MR i am sure will require more maintenance then a 5 spd.

mister good choice on the 8 or 9, I have a 10 and regret not getting an older model

Rob_sti_Pnw Whichever you pick, do a pre purchase inspection

chi_weezy ^ cmiiw but I think they're referring to the Evo 8/9 GSR/MR and not the X GSR/MR

Agreen88 What they said. You can do more with the GSR then the MR. With the MR you will get the quicker shifts with the paddle shifters but you will really have to beef up the motor for the MR to support anything more then 420hp id say just to be safe. Im currently int he process of looking for an evo and I found an 08 MR that I may be going with but im still up in the air about it since I have always drove true manuals.

evodreamPR Yeah just want to know more info my brother is getting one but he keeps saying loom for a mr. . The one that his getting next week it's an MR but took him 3 months to find it. One gear shouldn't make a difference only on mpg? Or is there an advantage that he would have over me?

Just get an 8 GSR. You're clearly looking for big power if you're throwing a 6766 on it right off the bat and building the motor, so don't even bother with an MR.
