I just found out that the Evo brakes will definately fit on a 2g as well, a member on here did the swap using 99' galant knuckles and everything else bolted up, he said that the rears will fit as well but the dust covers need trimming. We're still not sure about the fitment on 1g's.
Will The Ecu Support This Injector, Or Will I Have To Flash Ecu Or Reprogrm With Somethin Like Dsm Link
no our 2g 97 ecu's will not support 560cc injectors and our ecu's can not be reprogrammed, flashed or anything like that. If you want to run bigger injectors like the Evo's then you will need some sort of fuel tuning device i.e. SAFC, GM maf and maft translator, or DSMlink + 95 eprom ecu.
I know the cams cannot be used, but not sure about pistons and valve spring/lifters.
Actually, (and there is a lot of controversy on this on other forums btw) the cams do fit 1g's, with some minor work. A slot needs to be machined into the back of the intake cam for the cas and the dowel pins need to be relocated to align the dsm cam gears. Other than that, dimensionally they drop right in. I'm still researching this, trying to find a way to install them without machine work. I'll share more info as I find it.
I just read the faq and noticed the Evo 8 exhaust mani should bolt to a DSM head, but not to a DSM turbo. Well then can't we just use an Evo 8 turbo with it? Would there be any benefit from it?
We're opening a big ol' can of worms with this one and it has been covered a more than few times. Basically the evo 8 mainfold will bolt to your head no problems but the turbo is backwards and offset to where the comp. housing will interfere with your alternator. This can be fixed with the alternator relocation kit that many dsm shops sell. Then you will need all custom piping and the oils and water lines would route the same as you would a dsm turbo, except the hardlines wont fit once again due to the turbo's offset (see pic). Not to mention that the maf and intake filter/pipe would have to be moved to the opposite side of the engine bay. Sure the swap can be done. but there are turbo setups out there that will produce more power for less money and time. In my opinion, the benifit is not worth the cost. A new evo3 16g will yield similar power results for much less money.
This is the engine bay of my evo8 with a 1g manifold sitting on the radiator. Notice how the evo's turbo is much more offset to the right and the dsm's is offset to the left.
