I am looking to swap and EVO 8 or 9 steering rack into my GVR4 that I am prepping to race. I was wondering if anyone has tried it or has any info on the swap. From the few pictures I have dug up it looks like I will have to make new mounts to attach it to the sub frame but that should not be a big deal. And if the hoses don't match up a local tube's and hose's shop can make me some new ends. I feel like this is doable and ideas?

I dug in to it a few years back and I remember it being more than doable but forgot what the biggest hurdle was? I will try to jog my memory.

Seems like you have things covered. Just hopefully the part of the rack that has the shaft is in the right spot so you don't have to cut a hole in the subframe. Out of curiosity, why would you do this?

If you have ever driven an EVO you will notice that if you sneeze you will cross 3 lanes of traffic. I am looking for the quicker ratio of the rack.

Good information there. I was thinking about doing this but I already know that if my dad ever happened to drive my car, it will be going straight into a pole.

Depending on the look of the evo rack that sounds like a good idea^. Our rack is super simple once you dive into it, obviously you don't have aws correct?
I depoweed my rack not to long ago. But for me to have a the ajility of evo streering, in a non-powered rack, It might have to me my next setup if it works.

I went with a quickener because there were enough differences in the way the rack bolted up (including lines) that it didn't seem worth it enough to me. One mount on the evo rack is completely different, and the lines were both different if I recall correctly. Using a quickener gives you basically the same ratio too.
