I've been reading the thread "blown motors" and after hearing all of those horror stories I think I should go back to stock. I don't want to have to worry about paying $$$$ for something that wouldn't have happened if I was stock.

Yeah, I guess. I have 5,000 miles right now. Some people with the same mods say they blew their motor at 10,000 miles. That's crazy

I don't think an intake and exhaust is what blown motors are made of. I think it's something called too much "boost" combined with "bad tuning" that causes failures.

Jesus I knew that thread was gonna worry people for no reason, your fine, my car was overboosting at 31+psi for a month and its still fine a year later...

Seriously people gotta stop freaking out about their car blowing up because 1% of the community have had failures :mad:

Yeah I probably am just being paranoid. Its hard not to be you know? I don't think I am over boosting, at WOT I've been up to 28 at the most, usually it's around 24. It's nice hearing about you guys with a lot of miles though.

Dude, your being paranoid. Just watch your boost and air/fuel ratio and your good. Make sure you get tuned from a reputable shop.

My Evo is tuned for 27psi and occasionally hits 28psi, your very conservative at 24psi, you should be completely fine. Don't let pointless engine worries ruin the fun you can have in this car.

Its more likely that you'll get into an accident than have your engine blow.

No, its pretty easy to not be paranoid. Ignorance is bliss right?

But seriously, if it is tuned right, has quality parts, and is driven right, your car will last a long time.

your motor is going to die a very slow and horrible death....the evo x is extremely unreliable. You are doing the right thing selling it off while loosing money on it. Yes, you are 100% justified in being afraid.

Haha, this car is a giant pile of shit. I need to sell it quick. I'm sick of it tickling me when I floor it.
