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 9 turbo. Pay attention to the C. The C lets you know it is an evo 9 turbo.
evo 8.5 turbo below. notice the 10.5. this indicates the size of the hotside(even though it is stamped on the coldside). [B]If this were a 03-04 turbo, it would say 9.8 instead of 10.5[/B]
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.
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.
J-pipes are also different, 9 turbo left, 8 turbo right.
And just for fun, evo 9 turbo, evo 8 turbo, 14B DSM turbo, 13G dsm turbo cover.
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.
