Hi all, this project was started more than a year ago. I will be posting up some content to get up to date on where I'm currently standing, slowly :).

I am trying to build a 600whp, Evo 1. The early evos run the same engines as dsm's (mostly), and I found it may be fitting to have it here. If you're interested in following me further, you can follow me on twitter @eevotastic

Thanks!

Exhaust & Back
http://evotastic.ca/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/81.jpg
The overly technical setup was built not to bottleneck the turbo. If a 59mm compressor gets maxed out on the .55 A/R DSM housing, it might be a wise idea to go for a bigger exhaust housing if the compressor size is increased by 3mm. Also, a 62mm turbo will have considerably slower spool than your average 16G. Add to that the size of the T3 setup, and you’ll be lucky to spool before midnight. In comes the divided T3, equal length, ceramic coated tubular manifold. It includes two 44mm gate ports, to hopefully gain some spooling RPM. Read more (http://evotastic.ca/2011/turbo-back)

Stay tuned :)

Shortblock

Nothing overlooked on the block. Some say the rods I chose are not big enough, but we shall see. The block was built by one of the best builders, with plenty 700hp builds under their belt. I wish I had pictures to show of the build process, but unfortunately I don’t. The block that I used is the original one, which is a ’93, 7bolt block.

Looks awesome!

Have you got any video footage of it?
We can include it in our next AF TV video: http://www.youtube.com/user/AutomotiveForums

Brake Setup
http://evotastic.ca/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/3.jpg
Quick update to describe the current state of my brake setup. Perhaps down the line I will look into a full drag setup (ie Drag Man brakes), but for the time being I believe the current setup will work. It consists mostly of basic bolt-ons.

Transmission
http://evotastic.ca/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/9.jpg

In deciding what will hold the power, I settled for the biggest and baddest manual trans available. With the exception of going with an automatic transmission or a dogbox, there is no stronger transmission. As ran on John Shepherd’s 1000whp + 7 second dragster, should take me far enough. They don’t say whether the trans grenaded itself right after that pass or shortly after, but let’s hope it doesn’t ever auto destruct. Chose to go with a 4 spider center differential over a welded diff for the sake of city driving. Shepherd rates the 4 spider to around 600whp, which is right on my goal. We’ll see when I get there whether I regret this. Also chose all the fancy options. Evo 3 1st gear & input shaft, which is a taller gear. Evo 3 fifth gear, which is also taller. May assist in not bursting my eardrums on the highway. REM ISF (whatever that does…).

The Stage 4 is our best trans without going to our dog box. We exclusively ran this trans in our 8 second Talon. This trans comes standard with a locked center diff so it is more tailored for those weekend warriors but a 4 spider can be added for daily drivers. With a properly working clutch this trans will shift at 10,000 rpms with ease. This upgrade replaces all of the 1-4 internals and shafts and has a custom ratio 3-4 to keep the rpms up between shifts and through the traps. For those wanting to run the stage 4 and retain drive-ability we can substitute a 4 spider for an additional charge.

Nice, was this something you built in house, or got from a trans builder?


Interesting to see the use of old EVO III parts.
I think people forget that even the latest EVO is based on a 20 year old design.

The transmission was built by Shepherd & installed by me :) When new, the parts are surprisingly strong.

Initially wanted to go for a 2.4, had gotten a great shape 7bolt crank from a local, from a mitsu expo. Turned out I changed my mind for the highest revving 2.0L. 2.4 would have worked well with the rev limitations of ECMLink v3 Lite, but didn't wanna bother w/ any machine work.

In doing the wire tuck, notice you can hide the hood latch cable by routing it along the side and past the fusebox cable hole, to the front and under the top beam if you drill a small hole to route it like so. Some of the outside pics include this mod, you can see it is well hidden under & you can reuse the OEM clips, just flip em backwards.

Poly mounts for the side, made a template to drill some holes in them, hoping to reduce some of the vibration created by them. Started but not finised, have yet to buy a drill bit that size. Actual metal mounts getting a shot of black.

What will hopefully bring me to 600whp. According to BEP, the 259 billet comp wheel CAN make 600whp on a T3 exh housing. What I have is a cast 362 comp wheel and hopefully it will reach it. Otherwise, I will either switch the S262 for a S362, or attempt to reach my goals w/ the newer BatMoWheel billet comp wheels.

My initial wire tuck. Decided to do it right & relocate the fusebox inside the car. Will also remove all un-used wires, which I hadn't done earlier.

Still need to install the engine back in to complete the wiring harness. I want a single harness that goes from the inside of the car on 1 side, and into the engine bay, w/ a few connectors @ firewall level so it can easily be removed and re-intalled for pulling the engine.

Update.

Local confirmed the highest HP local car w/ K1 rods (750whp) is actually with the lightweight version, which is in turn not as strong as the ones I have. I asked about the rod bolts, and that very build runs the ARP 2000 bolts. Not worried the slightest bit.

Finished painting the mounts and pressing the poly inserts in.

Up next... reassembly of this
http://i1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee437/evo1ricericerice/IMG-20110723-00264.jpg

What I discovered on the clutch master. This could be related to my sticky clutch. There has been speculation regarding this: bubbles in the lines, flexing of the firewall, badly functioning slave.
http://i1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee437/evo1ricericerice/IMG-20110723-00253.jpg

It's apparent that the end of the master fork could have gotten stuck where the metal skirt ends. I don't know where exactly the skirt lines up but it's obviously hitting something.

Assembled clutch pedal assembly.

Updated first page parts. Decided on the connectors I will be using.

Finished separating the front engine harness to the rear. Couple spots left, hopefully I can get rid of some of the 12 wires that are still using the molex connectors in the pics. Well see. Wouldn't mind getting a 12pos Deutsh connector on top of this one. The molex junk is just not working for me.

Half de-loomed.

No more fading marker & tape... If the marker fades on this, the # will be taken down and a chart made just like the fusebox covers have one.

Done removing all unused connectors and ECU Pins. At this point what could be done is to shorten the fusebox cables from the 3rd harness, the body harness, to wiring more or less around the ECU.

Decided to polish it. Least expensive & nicest looking. Got it all down to about 100grit, at least the flat & visible parts. Need some more sandings discs for the timing side, lots of nooks and crannies on that side.

Got the dimples out with some sanding discs since I took that pic.

Bungs will have slight angle worked into them, less expensive than 90deg hose ends.

That is one awesome update!

Lots to get through. :)


How long have you had the car?
I didn't know the early Evo's made it out side of Japan, Europe and Asia.

Much more cooling stuff has yet to come. Up next is my custom water pipe and removal of all coolant hoses in the engine bay & custom built radiator. Hint: my oil cooler is for sale.
Stay tuned!
