Profile updated for now. What sort of maintenance items should I be looking at?
It depends on how well maintained your car has been. Yours looks well physically taken car of from your profile pic but a lot of these cars owner do mods over maintenece and then call the car a POS when it breaks down on them so first thing most older members on here will recommend is maintenance.

Timing belt if it hasn't been done and just general maintenance like plugs, wires, filters. Check your transmission fluid level. (Only use Mitubishi's Manual Transmission Fluid people will tell you to put all sorts of junk in there and it will ruin your syncros)

Check tie rods, wheel bearings, all 6 of your front ball joints and the 2 rear ones. Check the brake pads and struts. Check the sway bar links (You'll usually hear clunking if they're going out)

We coullda saved you 200 bux. A 2g ebay pipe and k&n filter is literally the same thing as a dejon tool, injen intake pipe.

I only put 4 pictures on my profile and I haven't gotten banned yet ROFL

Welcome to the site! Make sure to do your maintenance! Ask me how I know...
And also create a vehicle profile and upload pictures so @Bud92gsx won't ban you
Wellllllllll now that you have brought up only having 4 pics in your profile :hmm:

Thats funny tho u say maintenance and ask me how I know. Cause we all know what happened, or at least probably have a good idea 🤣

Yeah I did my maintenance on the car when I got it, but all of the previous owners didn't really take good care of it.
I needed a new clutch, Transmission, engine rebuild, front upper and lower control arms, etc.

Red Line 75W90 has served me very well, but, yes, do make sure to research which fluids are best for your car @Etterkc86.

If you want the car to handle better, grab some true coilovers from a company like Feal, Tien, and other brands with a good reputation.
you can also get fender braces and strut bars to stiffen the front up a bit
