Hi all,

Is it possible to identify a 190 Evo I or Evo II by the VIN or engine number?

I am trying to verify that an Evo I is the real thing.

Many thanks,
Bryn.

Yes, the modified 2.5-16 engines have unique three digits after the 102 prefix. Would the Evo I be in Croatia, by any chance?

Close, but this car is in Japan :D

It appears to be a fake anyway, the engine no starts with 102990 and I believe the Evo II is 102992, so am guessing the Evo I would be 102991? This car seems to have started life as an auto and had a major conversion to a manual Evo I replica :eek:

Many thanks,
Bryn.

The Evolution (I and II) chassis prefix is 201.036

The Sport Evolution 2.5-16 motor is 102.991, the Evolution II is 102.992

A 102.990 is the stock 2.5-16

The shifter on the Sport Evolution was not serialized.
