2003 was the first model year for evos in the US.

03-04 was no real change
05 they started coming with a front lsd from the factory, Active Center Differential (ACD), and 10.5 hotside for the turbo. Also first year for the MR.
06 Bigger compressor housing for the turbo, MIVEC.

Those are the basic performance things. There are alot more cosmetic ones. Basically, if you can't Afford a 9, try for an 05 8. If you can't afford that, just get an 03 and use the money you save by not getting an 04 for mods since there was no difference between the two.
