Pros about evo: everything.
Cons: nothing.

How many miles?

about the only "cons" of a late eveo motor is the lack of a steel insert for the timkens & a weak pinion shaft,good chance both wil NOT give you any problems though.good motors,better than twin cams (just like any evo,ide replace the cam bearing with a torrington unit)

And the lifters while you are in there. EVO's remind me of the energiser bunny, they just keep on going and going and going.

How about dropping into the "New to the Community" area and doing an intro? It's the polite thing to do.

You may want to take a look at the lifter rollers (Chris beat me by 5 seconds) and drive belt.

If you are not hearing anything weird, you have plenty of power and you are not smoking or leaking.... ride it.

I can add only, that you want to check the lifters at 25,000 miles.
