Hey all,

I've been modding my dsm for quite a while now, and I've recently had nothing but problems with it. I was wondering if you guys could help me decide what I can and can't take with me to use on an evo. I also have some quesitons too.

1. 2g dsm and evo struts/springs compatable at all?
2. mitsu-style turbos work? Worth keeping or no?
3. Same alternator? ( I have a new galant alternator)
4. 1g throttle bodies, worth keeping?
5. Cams are the same? What about my BC valve springs, are they stiffer than OE evo springs?
6. Thermostat housing, FP intake pipe, or fuel rails are the same?
7. I have an apexi FMIC made for a skyline, will it fit on an evo?
8. I have an in-line and intank walbro, should I ditch the inline and get 2 intanks for a "double pumper" setup? Can you use the evap line on an evo for a fuel line?
9. Can I use my rods, 7 bolt crank, and pistons in an evo if I want to do a stroker down the road?

Here's a list of what I have and some pics of the business side of things. Any advice would be great to what I should keep for an evo for a 10sec. car. Thanks guys

well first thing is what evo are you talking about.

7, 8 and 9 evo motors are mounted opposite of dsm's

Wait, what? You got an EVO 1-7 somewhere in Idaho? Good show :applause:

If I'm just confused from reading some of these posts (most likely) you probably got an EVO 8 or 9. Aside from your turbocharger (you probably already know that the 8's and 9's use twin scroll turbos so it's up to you, although I've seen adapters that let you run your current turbo) I can't really see too much that'll cross over. Of course if I'm mistaken and you do have an EVO 1-3 then you can pretty much use everything you got :D

oh btw, your Talon looks amazing under the hood

I wouldn't be too surprised at a pre VIII somewhere...they are at least a handful of really good conversions that I know of....plus you never know.....

Engine Management:

Engine Internals:
BC springs, 3g lifters (same as an EVO)

Drivetrain Modifications:
