evo intake manifold

i came up on a evo 8 intake manifol, bold pattern looks almost idenical to the outlander manifold. i belive it would work, but im guessing the evo would be more pricey than the outlander one.
outlander on the left, evo on the right.

alot less bulky and better looking imo.


although cleary it would bolt up.
the intake runner port shapes/sizes are different.
I'd hit turbulence from the flat ridge that the incoming air would be hitting.
Id have to do a lot of porting to the head to get the evo manifold to fit.
anyone ever heard/seen of this done?

There are many reasons why this wouldnt be worth the hassle on a performance level. The first and most important being that it wouldnt really do anything noticeable for performance.

Besides that, the work required is a lot more than you are seeing.
If you look closely on the right side of the intake manifold flange, it is quite different due to the difference in cooling systems between the evo engine and the SOHC 4G64. The evo manifold doesnt have anywhere for the coolant to flow. Of course this could all be made to work.............But I cant see it being worth the PITA.

Install the stock manifold and its supporting brackets correctly and it wont break.

wish it was that simple, ass. after 2 or 3 i figured that wasnt it. so i thought maybe the belts. when i had my timing belt changed i noticed a noise wich sounded like a horse when at high rpm's. took it apart and discovered my balance belt was 180 out. hopefully thats it, i just want to cover my ass to make sure.

If you have a CAI or WAI you need to support the piping and not let it just hang. The stock intake manifold can't handle any weight.

Your reasoning is totally backwards.
After 2 or 3 that means its aboslutely positively incorrect installation.

I don't know, Mitsubishi itself changed the part number to the highlander one. My dealer said it is a very common problem.

The 3G manifold is now listed as the highlander manifold? I doubt it.

I think what your dealer was trying to say was that its common for people with mechanical deficiencies to screw up the install.

I didn't call to verify, but have been told twice already that they changed the part number on them. I don't have an I4 so I wasn't about to call and double check.

And the mechanics said that one or two of the manifolds they installed broke. But they also said the cars had broken engine mounts when they came back too.

Long story short, I'm not too worried about it.
