    Advised AGAINST, because you do not know what were the processes he took to convert or the WIRING work. Ask Izso within this forum, he had nightmare rectifying a converted 1JZ E36, the issues are never ending. It's better you get an original one or get one Lancer CB chassis and start converting under your own supervision.

    Unless you know the owner personally and you know how OCD he is, othewise do not attempt.

    with that budget...probably you should wait and go for real evo...dont rush, especially with covvid19 and oil price dropped.

    if cross-platform i agree. but this is same platform mitsu.

    Ts, just take note on how g4 ecu are connected. If custom loom, then ok,
    if it is connected using existing stock evo3 wire loom, do note that you cant simply connect stock ecu.

    Still there will be headaches if the conversion was not done with proper manner, or even the installation of engine was not done right. Speak from experience, i had this other Volvo S40 driver, 5 cyl to the same 5cyl engine swap, the mechanic still able to fxxk up the installation and cause major engine mounting crack.

    no tthat many evo 3's out there...
    mitsu to mitsu, usually wiring is pretty straightforward. matter of taking from donor and swapping, noneed to splice or anything.

    all i will say is, real evo prices macam goreng at the moment. at 55k u better be getting a very nice car, cause the evo3's are changing hands for slightly over that. i think this year cheapest was just under 70k, but ofc that wasnt 'mint'.

    you must understand one thing, once the chassis has the code 'CE9...' its got a collectors value tied to it... a 'CB...' in the eyes of a collector does not.

    also if ur considering a CB for 55, you might as well take a look at converted CM/CK4 chassises. iirc the asking prices are also around the 55k mark. **ck4's can be registered 4wd, cm chassises as well if im not mistaken

    Better buy a real Evo, add another 10-15k can get a 5/6, even a 7 if you're lucky. No matter how full you convert, it will never be the same as the real deal.

    Evo's are very rare even at the dealer's market, i am pretty sure alot owners are not letting them go unless they really have to. I fully support getting original Evo as the feeling of seeing the real thing still gives me heart pump.

    the lowest e7 i have seen is about 70, but tu needed work.... so yes 55+15, u can actually get an evo 7 but be prepared to dump a minimum of 10k into it. but do take note, as the evo fellas keep telling me, be careful of accident cars. these things are usually driven by orang gila so accidents are quite common. a clean car is kinda difficult to source. (deswai u see a few fellas asking 6 figs for stock e7's)

    i think e6 prices also around the 70k mark, kind of rare so even less pretty units were advertised and sold for around 70k

    Afternoon all sifu,


    Read all the valuable comments.. yup I agreed a converted is still converted, it will not be the same as ori. Somemore I’m not expert duno how to see the conversion is nicely done or not..

    In this case I think I will wait and get the ori instead. Ori so expensive and in cash, think i have no chance to own one :(

    nothing really wrong with converts imo, just get someone who knows how to inspect them.

    Original will have original issues. Like cash buy only.

    Converted car - I think 55k is a bit high for a car done like that. If you can get it cheaper in the 40k range then it's a potential good buy. But also is this seller a friend of yours? Do you trust his work? Bring the car to a mechanic who knows his stuff to inspect the car before committing to buy.

    This 55k is already high, there is another red one asking even higher at 70k. Lol Got one more in black, asking about 50k also.

    My tuner last year sold his fully converted Wira at 40k.

    I have asked for nego.. and the owner said that the ori E3 is worth 100k in market, i was like “sure or not”?? I add another 20k probably can get an E9 jor.. Then he mentioned the limitness of the model (E9 got about 60units in mkt but E3 have only 10units).. Hmmm.. altho limited but also got the cap there rite? Is that mean an E1 hv to sell 200k due to limited?

    That depends on the buyer. If buyer like Evo 3 then how much also will try to buy it. Is just like my VR4. Got buyer willing pay RM20k, if they don't like RM5k also hard to sell.......lol

    there are more than ten evo 3s pretty sure of that.
    like vr2turbo is saying, there is no fixed values associated to these cars, its a suka sama suka price.

    about the car's value, as of last year i think, lowest they have exchanged hands for 60, 100k is a stretch, even aysraf's(maaf my spelling xleh pakai) car didnt sell for 100k.... i just saw 2 hours ago, e3 advertised for 55k, unsure of what cond or state
