evo 8 engine swap into a 1g???

will it fit properly without much mods to the body or will it need a customized body? how big is the evo 8 engine compared to a dsm's 4g63?

Please try a search, it will not fit. Not even close, the engine is reversed from ours...

And what would be the point of even doing the "swap"?

It will go in if you use one of our trannys, and if you want the turbo to be on the back and the intake manifold in front. You'd have a whopping top speed of 30mph, but you'd have five reverse gears to choose from.
