Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

The turbo kit has been wrapped up! All of the fabrication is complete: manifold, wastegate dump, down pipe, and lower IC piping. There are no modifications to the car, for the exception that I needed to run a Evo 5-7 radiator.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

A little update:

I completed the oil lines for turbo. I primed the oiling system while the timing belt was off the motor, installed a new timing belt and completed the front of the engine. Filled the trans with fluid. I installed Avid racings poly motor and trans mounts offering, they look great but the passenger side mount raises the engine up about of an inch. So I fabricated a 1/4 spacer to account for the design flaw. I cannot believe how much garbage companies produce without and verification & validation testing. Just a tiny bit of due diligence would make customers 100% happier. I installed the Magnus V5 and Boomba TB too.

Next steps are to fabricate a slim line fan mount on the radiator, upper intercooler pipe, intake pipe.

Motor mount on passenger side was off by a 1/4". The manifold works very good on my 1G so I was inclined to use it on the evo too. Yep this thing is going to be nasty!!

Thanks for the comments! I will be showing more progress very soon! I need to get the camera out to the garage! Next steps will be to fabricate the upper intercooler pipe and the 3.5" aluminum exhaust with 2 mufflers to keep it quiet.

I'll be interested to see how quiet you can make it. As that is one of my goals for this season.. make the 1g 3.5" exhaust as quiet as humanly possible(willing to sacrifice a little hp for less sound).

I was pretty happy with my old 3.5" system with the two mufflers, although it was still kind of loud. I need to quiet my current 3" system way down, I just don't like that fart can crap anymore.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Quick update, its getting closer! Servicing the turbo kit is going to be a pain in the ass due to the downpipe. I cannot snake it through with all of the turbo/manifold/WG/radiator components in place. I need to remove the WG then snake it up through the bottom to connect it to the turbo. There was not enough room to fit a V-band close enough down before it makes the bend to the back of the car.

Yea I know what you mean. I'm debating installing one of those electronic controlled muffler on my other Evo. I had the chance to listen to one installed on a 3" TBE on an Evo and it sound OEM! The cost is a little high but worth it in my mind. At least it gives you the option to be "normal". My only concern is road salt fucking up the actuation and electronics controlling it.

Any plan for a heat shield for the coolant return line ?

Yes, I'm using thermo-tec wire jacketing to protect the coolant over flow line and WG line. I'm also wrapping the down pipe up, to protect the WG. I already wrapped up a section of the manifold to protect the starter wiring.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects


Today I fabricated a new mount for the ethanol content sensor. I also cleaned up wiring and finalized the intake manifold.

How do you intend to utilize the ethanol content sensor with the vs 1 AEM?
