EVO 8 turbo and manifold

EVO8 big 16g
Does any one have this on thier 4g63 here?
The reason why i ask is they are supposed to be a nice bolt on. If so i am planning on putting my EVO turbo on my eclipse and wanted to know if anyone had any issues or results to share.
If anyone one else would like to do the same let me know i have two setups. From both of my own vehicles.
Thanks in advance for your comments

Sorry to break it to you, the EVO 8 turbo will not fit on your 4G63 motor. For lack of a better term, the turbo is backwards. I sure there is a way to do with some major custom work, but you would be better off with a EVO III Big 16G. The EVO 8 motor is still a 4G63 platform but the engine and tranny are swapped, tranny is on the drivers side, motor on the passengers side. It is also a twin-scroll turbo and needs a special manifold.

Guess what, Shepherd's car is really, really fast. Faster than any EVO. And it doesn't use EVO parts.

Urg I'm just kinda sick of people asking every day whether an Evo _____ will fit their dsm. Evo tranny, Evo motor swap, evo intercooler, evo turbo! There's nothing special about these parts other than the wow-factor of telling some 14 year olds kids you've got Evo parts!

The manifold from the evo bolts right up.
The twim scroll is a great option.
What do you mean by backwards?

I never said that it would make it faster or anything . I just asked about the compatability.
It is a great uption for those looking to upgrade thier small 16g
And whats all the hate over the evo for?

The turbo compressor housing is going to be placed in the center of your car's alternator.

But hey, don't let the fact that it won't fit deter you. You go for that Evo VIII turbo upgrade. I'm sure that you can come up with some sort of frankenstein turbo driven alternator.

I know you from the evo forum and respect alot of your replies.

since were on the evo8 subject, anybody think the rear lsd would fit on a dsm, what about a j-spec or euro-spec front and center diffs? or do you have to have active yawn control?(specially made for that car)

what about if you use the bushur altanator relocation kit to move the alt to the AC position. then the turbo might fit and make for some pretty short intercooler piping(front mount).

Non of the j-spec or euro spec diffs seem to work with the stock evo so i dont think that it would for the DSM. But i have not looked into it for myself yet. Just going on others assumptions and trials.
The casings seem to be very different. I know that the j-spec fron diff if installed in the us spec evo it would blow apart.

Interesting... But i was wondering if the units would just bolt in place without losing any amenities.
But that may work.
Its an option at least to make a project out of it.
