Default Evo shell

so this was just a bright idea i came up with due to the fact of me looking at evo shell's and was wondering about swaping my 6 bolt set up in to it. i know that the motor does sit on the passanger side of the bay, its just the same as the 420a mounting the evo 4g63 will bolt right into a gs eclipse cuz the mounts match up but i was tryin to see if there where any mounting kits to switch the placment of the block on the evo to the driver side? and as far as wiring im guessing just have to hardwire the harness's together so the speedo and everything still works.. any feed back? I think it would be a interesting swap

I highly doubt there is a swap kit out that will let you switch to the old style mounts and transmission, there would be no reason for one. You would have to do it yourself.

You could swap your engine into a 4th gen Mirage and do an evo clone.

or use a 4G64 block and crank and build it up, since that what evo guys upgrade to anyway. heres a link to C3G of a guy selling one http://www.club3g.com/forum/automoti...ne-tranny.html

He still hasn't thought about the transmission issues, transfer case... oh and that it's a pointless idea.

Default Re: Evo shell

Prez is right. We get this question all the time. can i turn my 01 lancer into an evo, can i put an evo 1-3 motor into an 8 etc. it will not be cost effective to do this. if you can afford the shell save another 3k-5k and buy the motor and trans and then put it together right.
