Cedia to Evo conversion

Postby 0ffline » October 1st, 2017, 8:06 pm

I currently own a Cedia Lancer and I want to convert it to an evo 7/9.

For now I’ll be focusing on body conversion for now, if you know any places that sells evo parts and prices please say.

For the engine conversion.... tell me your opinion and any suggestions

Hardest part is the rear. To do the 4wd conversion and to put on the rear fenders, both require welding works. Other than that, everything is bolt on bolt off parts.

I myself have a CS lancer and have looked into this. Most cost-effective method is get a unregistered donor car (whole car or front/rear half) and swap out everything, you will get all the parts you need and will be cheaper than buying the individual parts

That is 747 technologies you talking about?

He changed the whole back half from half way down the rear windscreen I think, he didn't finish the project, I know he was selling it unregistered and the back half had to realign and weld off

It's the rim that would determine that. He probably running like 7.5" or 8" max width. From how it looking, the bolting point for the rim close to the outside.

Yeah I know that, but no need for the wide body unless he puts the wider rims. Looks like an exact lineup currently. Nice sleeper Evo, men will just say that is a tobo lansah like mine

The car came original front wheel drive auto GDI 4g93T. The guy in Grande did the whole build. Evo engine, gearbox, transfer, rear diff (rs), subframe front and back, the whole nine yards. Was glad to benefit from his labour, but wouldn't recommend the build unless u r a real "hands on" person. Could easily run a budget of buying a legit evo.

Basically yeah for chassis.
Advisable to do a weld in roll cage when doing this to help reinforce everything and to help with rigidity as Evo chassis slightly more rigid due to 1 more metal layers in the construction if I'm not mistaken.
May need to change nosecut, compare them and see
