I have an idea, I was thinking about using an evo viii water pump with a viii alternator bracket, I think this will work.

I believe this is an image of the IX bracket, if it is the alternator is already supported by the bolt running towards the intake manifold so I don't think this is really needed. I have read people not using this bracket at all.....

So apparently the bolt to the water pump is not needed, if this is the case we evo IX guys can substitute the cheaper Gates evo viii water pump, $200 savings.

This thread gave definitely gave me the ability to exhale... THANK YOU

My total, with the OEM IX Water Pump ordered from mitsubishipartswarehouse.com, was 441.65 with it all shipped. Still much cheaper than any other route!

Good thread. Has anyone got a part number for the gates Evo 9 water pump? edit. derp, there isn't one. sorry.

How is this timing belt compared to say the gates racing belt (T167R), which seems to be considerably more expensive. Is it worth forking out the extra $ for that on a modified car?

also what about seals? is it worth replacing those?

I just want to verify that the timing belts are the same? That part number is showing up for Evo 8 but not 9s.

gates doesn't make a ix water pump, just get the viii and don't use the one mounting hole.
