I'd just do all 5

Get in the car and hold the gas pedal to the floor. 100% pinned down, not half throttle. When the ECU sees 100% throttle, it will shut off the injectors and let the gas clear the cylinders. After cranking it for a few seconds, stop, give it a sec, and then start it normally.
THANK YOU! Great stuff for the future! Did you ever change out the relays afterwards?

Thanks. How often do you do yours? The parts site every 6k miles. Seems excessive, no?

I think that's if you run the car hard with a lot of high power mods. I did it maybe once within 32k of owning the car from new? Sorry don't own the evo anymore just like to help others still in the game
