Question about Cars & Trucks
Since it might be out of warranty being 12 years old, you should contact any Automobile Engineer familiar with your Car Model. If it's still under Warranty, contact Authorized Service Station.

You will have to call Mitsubishi for the code if it's not in the Owner's Manual (like my wife's wasn't). Call Mistu with the VIN# and Serial# of the radio at hand.
To get the VIN number, check the bottom of the front window.
For the Serial # from the radio: Remove the two screws under the center console. There is one on each side of the console (you may have to lay on the floorboard to see them clearly). Then pull out the two air vents from the center console (this will help you get a good grip for the next part). Hold the edge of the top of the console and the air vent for either side and pull it towards the rear of the car. I had to wiggle the console pretty vigoursly to get both sides out. Be sure not to pull it too far from the dash right away because you'll need to disconnect the hazard light switch prior to completey removing the console cover. Once that is disconnected you can safely move the console cover. This will expose the mounting braket. There two screws on the side of the mounting braket for the radio. Just unscrew those and you can remove the radio and see the serial number on top of the radio (you may also be able to see it if you just look in the space above the radio while it's still in the mounting braket but I wanted to make sure I had all the numbers/letters correct and didn't have to go through this again). Just do everything in reverse (don't forget to plug the hazard light switch back in!) to get it all back together.

First off, you don't have to remove the WHOLE INTAKE MANIFOLD. If you look closely, you'll see that the intake manifold is a two piece setup(Upper Intake, Lower Intake).
You will need a new gasket after removing it. Don't be cheap either, get one that is reusable.
First, remove the air intake from the restrictive airbox, then remove the bolts from the center portion of the intake not from the heads!!!(This is not a Chevy so the car's parts made on this intake is for people like us to work on)
After removing the "Upper" intake and everything else including any hoses, you may successfully remove the intake and lay it aside and guess what, you can replace spark plugs.
Replacing the front three is a no brainer so I'm not getting into that LOL. NOW, I HIGHLY suggest to go ahead and spend the extra $20.00 or $30.00-$35.00 if you was performance gains and better/longer performance usage, and get you some plug wires too. You only want to do this once (For a long time).
Do not use any other spark plug but an NGK brand, NOt an AC Delco although they call for it too, I wouldn't go with them. These stout V8 killer motors produced were specifically made for high performance.
