    I doubt it'll fit unless the evo turbo is flanged...which I don't think it is. Our Stock turbos have a flange that volt directly to the intercooler where the x has a front mount and the turbo hooks up to a hose.
    It was hard to see the turbo in the engine bay though

    Nope. Two completely different turbos. All different flanges. If you wanted to make it work, it would involve a lot of machining (read: $$$$$$) which is pointless when you can just pick up a good used 18G or smaller Dom.

    Unless you can get a front mount intercooler so it may for to those pipings and use the evo intake side and the subies exhaust side so it could match up to the downpipe still
    A little outside the box thinking
