evo 8 vs 9 differences

 

This page is going to show you the differences between an 05 evo 8 turbo and an 06 evo 9 turbo.

Keep in mind an 05 turbo has a bigger hotside than 03 and 04 evo turbos.

So, the 05 turbo hotside is the same as the 06(evo 9), however the coldside on the evo 9 is bigger than all evo 8 turbo coldsides(03-05).

 

in summary  03-04 < 05 < 06.

 

for reference from now on, I will refer to the turbos as follows.

03-04= evo 8 turbo

05 = evo 8.5 turbo

06 = evo 9 turbo

 

Evo 9 turbo left, Evo 8.5 turbo right.

evo 8.5 turbo below.  notice the 10.5. this indicates the size of the hotside(even though it is stamped on the coldside). If this were a 03-04 turbo, it would say 9.8 instead of 10.5

Once apart, the coldside difference in size is very noticeable.  evo 9 turbo left, evo 8 turbo right.

Oil feed line differences.  I believe the 8 line got bent, but either-way, they are different.   9 turbo left, 8.5 turbo right.

The only line that is the same between the two turbos is this coolant line.

This coolant line is different. As you can see, the evo 9 coolant line is longer/bigger to accommodate the larger housing.

The oil return lines look very similar, however the 9 is longer than the 8.

In summary, if you are going to put an evo 9 turbo on your evo 8, you should get all the 9 coolant and oil lines as well as a 9 j-pipe.
