Head swap info:
Compression options

DOHC head swap parts list

2.4 block and Evo head(Misc)


Cams:
Cams Choices

Evo 8 vs JDM Evo8 MR

Cam Selection
Cam selection for turbo setup have been covered. Cam selection for a NA setup has not. Here is a suppose setup:

Min.
260/264 [Stock, Tomei, HKS, or Jun]
A combination proven in the Mitsu Galant Tuned by AMG.
Degree the intake to 18 open/62 close; degree the exhaust to 63 open/21 close to mimic valve timing of the cams use in the galant tuned by amg. For slightly more top end, mimic the valve timing of the jdm evo 8 mr intake by degreeing it to 17 open/63 close.

268/272 (more like the above just more duration, good for a 2.4L[GSC S1 or Kelford 264]
272/264(the norm)
272/280(max for a street/strip setup)

Setting cam timing:
Option 1

Option 2

4G69 Info:
*The 4G69 is simply a 4G64 with 87mm bore and a deck height of a 4G63, interesting parts may be use to swap over such as lightened crank, rods, and crankshaft pulley, as well as use of the lower compression height pistons to use with a longer rod to increase the rod ratio thus allowing the 100mm stoke to rev higher. More details inside.

I had read somewhere that there are holes that need to be plugged up in the block when doing the swap but from what I can tell it looks like that is not the case. I figured this would be a good place to post this question.

That's only for swaps done on 2G eclipses. Nothing needs to be blocked or plugged with the 3G head swaps.

Heres another one, If using the 94 galant dohc timing belt do you still need to use adj. cam gears?

Someone mentioned that you won't have to, but his timing appeared to be off. I would get the Evo8 timing belt and gears. It'll allow you to take full advantage of the DOHC head by being able to tune the intake and exhaust independently. Prosteetonline has cam gears at a great price and evo8 timing belts for less than $30 when they are in stock.

dou you lose a/c or power steering with the swap
I'm sure others would rather chastise you first, but since this is your first post I'll be nice...:bigthumb:

There are actually quite a few threads covering this topic in great detail. Click on the word Search up at the top right and then type in various things you'd like to know about. Searching through the various threads before you ask questions helps us from having to answer the same questions over and over...

In answer to your question though, I wouldn't think so, but I haven't done the swap...which I why I recommend you search to see if that's been covered. I know there is a thread with a complete parts breakdown on what is needed...
