alright guys im currently in the proccess of gathering all the parts for the head swap.
so far ive gotten the main biggies.
evo 8 head complete supertech valves
evo 9 intake manifold complete with fuel rail
JE pistons 87bore specific for the swap
Helix evo 8 rods
prostreet camgears
hmm dont remember whatelse i got

ok so i was wondering what main/rod bearing you guys used for the swap and post where to get them.

also a head gasket. i know most have used the cometic from RRE does anyone have the part number or what exactly did you tell RRE to get the right one?

ill try to organize this project better in this thread later on so it can be another reference for people needing info about the swap.

thanks for the time

about the timing belt, i read somewhere that the evo 8 belt is going to be a tight fit and i read on evom that the dohc galant belt , forgot what year, will fit.

also on flash's parts list it lists that you need the eclipse 2.4L timing belt pully, tensioner and the tensioner pully. shouldn't i already have that or are those different?
