On most of the newer EVO styles you´ll need to do some kind of custom job on the grill area to get it to fit right. From what I know, the EVO3 that I have is not a direct bolt on from a mitsu lancer, it was custom made to fit a ford laser. So I am not positive that the newer styles will bolt up perfectly.

hehe, not worried about that...nothing a little drilling and a roll of duct tape wont handle...lol..

nah, i had to do a little handy work when i repaired the front end, so i think i could handle a little modification.

As for the bolt up...pretty much just drilling new holes or making new brackets to bolt it up right?? and what did you have to do to your grill area to get it to fit?

I am not sure the newer bumpers are the correct width, so worst case you would have to chop it in half and shorten in a little. Besdies that, yeah it´s just making mounts and drilling holes, etc. The grill on mine fit fine using tracer headlights, since they are basically the same shape as the lights on the laser which the bumper was made for.
