Hello, good to see a forum for Mitsubishi owners..

Alright mnevofe0116

Great to have you join us on the boards

Absolutely on the tune for those noted changes. Hoping the BOV is set for recirc vs vent to atmos

Welcome, Joe

Maybe I should just put on my ETS V3 catback and Intake, and don't tune yet for now.. and gather up my bolts on and put on the BOV + other bolts on then go tune later?

Or is that a pretty bad idea as well..

You will need a tune with the intake.

I read your post and HAD to chime in. To answer your question about a tune, Yes you would need tune if you did an intake. If you just did a catback exhaust, you wouldn't need a tune. With that being said, I would also suggest to WAIT until you start tinkering with your car. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but the powertrain warranty on the Evos is 5 years or 60K. Since you got a 2015, your warranty SHOULD last until next year unless you've already hit 60K. I suggest just driving the Evo "as is" and gathering up parts so you have them all ready as soon as your warranty expires. To each their own, but I just don't see why people buy cars with warranties and then void those warranties on day one. Hey, its your $$$ so if you have the money to cover the costs of repairs, go for it. If not, then hold out. What "I" did with my Evo, was spend money on cosmetic mods and other performance mods (Coilovers, Drilled/Slotted rotors, LED lights, new shift knob, aftermarket stereo, etc). Those are mods that will make your Evo look great so if you do end up doing the power mods later on, the look of the Evo can match the power its putting out. Just my opinion. If you do decide to add power, make sure you check to see if your local Mitsubishi dealership is "mod friendly". Some dealerships will be more forgiving with mods and others will try to screw you over for ANY mods (even just an intake) you have done.

First of all, welcome!! Post some pics so we can see!

Like others have said, youll need a tune for the mentioned parts.
If i were you I would wait and gather the parts that I want that way Id only have to tune once and save money. Also, Theres a member in the forums selling a shifting package that I would highly definitely recommend. Its a night and day difference with how the shifting feels. All in all I would honestly enjoy the car and learn the characteristics of it in stock form. Its crazy good out of the box to begin with. Your car. Your plan though. Were all just here to help! Good luck!

I would say go back in time and learn about the car a bit before throwing parts at it. Enjoy but get a tune!
