Evo noob with a Evo 8 SSL

Sup guys just picked up a 2004 Evo SSL with 132000 miles. My last car was a straight fuel sipper (+aero mods) for pizza delivery. The Evo is a nice change of pace. PO Left me a HKS turbo timer, the front lip, and upgraded motor mounts; still digging into it though. Gonna be doing some minor mods/fixes soon.

The list so far:
-The engine light flashes on pulls; I'm thinking knock? If so, hopefully just some bad gas from sitting. Going to fill with some premium in the AM.

-Steering wheel wrap; as the stock one is sticky and degrading.

-New shift knob

-Fix the fuel door

-Replace the dead EGT with IAT gauge.


Ill get better pics soon

Thanks!

Where is a good section to start a build thread or worklog?

Yeah, I think it might need a reflash. Put some new 92 fuel in it but the light is still going off during boost. Wideband shows 11-11.5 during WOT. Recommendation on a reflasher? Stealership?
