    hello everyone im going to build what I imagine will be one of the only evo 8 4g63 awd gs eclipse in the entire midwest. Ive done many hours of research and im ready to pull the trigger. Huge shout out to MiguelDSM on youtube for putting this idea in my head and parts list youre the goat im looking for parts and the occasional helpful thread to help make this swap happen. Need a jdk awd diff from an automatic gsx an evo 8 engine and the trans and transfer case out of an evo 4g-6g aswell as a gsx rear subframe and gas tank.

    Will do. The second I can find a 6gen evo trans and transfer case this build will go full swing. Tossing around the idea of a YouTube channel. MiguelDSM is the only channel I've seen for this swap. It's a FULL build this things a total shit box right now.

    Sounds like a blast! Can’t wait until I find something I can finally sink my teeth into. Good luck on the build, can’t wait to see your progress!

    Unfortunately this is probably going to be a pretty slow build. Part of the reason I joined was in the hopes of finding some of these rare parts. They didn't sell anything older than the 8th gen evo in the US so parts have been a huge headache and they're some of the most important pieces for the build. Ive called a couple importers and haven't had luck yet.
