+1 for buying modded rather than back to stock.

1st whose going to do all the wrenching to pull off and replace the parts, are they going to be using all the right gaskets, torques, and clean everything before it's put back together. For example, suspension parts, either you pull everything off or leave it unbalanced, means an alignment at a minimum.

All the parts you take off are going to be used so you won't get more than 50% of the purchase price and you'll have twice the labor in them.

Buying modded, rather than having the seller saying "oh, I had this and that, but I never put my foot in it" allows me to look at how the mods were done, the quality of install and parts used, and tells me what stress was put where.

I mean, it's not like you did not get the fun from the parts, and selling the car modded you can get at least 1/4 to 1/3 of the parts, at a minimum, TANSTAAFL.

just my 2 cents

+1, and it might be worth considering the trend with the TT Supra as far as price before selling your Evo... I forsee the value increasing when the car becomes no longer available

Picked up a stock 8 a few months ago. It had never been modified in any way and i did end up paying a little more for it then one in the same condition that had been modified. I personally would never buy someone elses headace. lots of people sell there cars cuz they are nickel and diming them to death and dont want to deal with it anymore.

I'm not sure if this will help, but whenever I buy a sports car(evo) I try to find one that is as close to stock as I can. This just makes me feel that the car was not pushed to extremes, even though it might not be true. It makes the car feel more reliable, to me. Good luck.

I test drove 9 evos before I bought mine because of this reason. I wanted the cleanest evo that was as close to stock as could be and eventually found one. Not to bag on anyone but there are a lot of "garage mechanics" out there and one thing I've learned.....everybody is a mechanic till their car breaks!

Sell it as a private seller to get the most money. I use to work for a dealership and we love to give lowest as possible for modded cars, so we can sell if for a premium. On that note do not sell to dealerships with mods on the car, better to part out and go back to stock.
