Orbital Prestige 2-DIN Dash Conversion Kit (Lancer/EVO)

I'd like to thank everyone who has been in support of this thread as well as my efforts for the past year.

I've invested a great deal of time and money into designing the ultimate interior upgrade for the USDM Lancer/EVO, the Orbital Prestige 2-DIN Dash-Conversion Kit.

If you read the next 30 pages, you are bound to find the answer to any as well as every question you could possibly have about this kit. However, to save your time and energy, i'm going to post some basic information about the kit here in this very post.

Major Points:

The original kit has been redesigned to accomodate your existing climate controls via our proprietary custom bezel, resulting in a totally plug & play interior upgrade that can be completed in under 35 minutes with basic tools.

The redesigned kit is 40% less expensive than the original. Price for the new kit will be $295 versus $495 for the old one. The first 100 people in the GB will receive this kit @ $250.

Current options include the DEFI Single-DIN Gauge Pack (matching red on black for a perfect blend to interior lights) and 2-DIN Headunits (Eclipse, Pioneer, Kenwood)

The kit includes everything you need to convert your USDM Single-DIN Dash to a true 2-DIN featuring ABS Plastic, Injection-Molded Mid/Lower Bezels that are second in quality to noneother than the factory itself. It also includes miscellaneous hardware and an illustrated instruction manual to maximize ease of installation.

Payment will be accepted @ our webstore, which will be announced upon the kits release and our formal acknowledgement as an evoM vendor.

We will be offering an array of high-end parts and accessories to this kit as well as the interior of the Lancer/EVO after the release and success of this project. I can't tell you how much I appreciate everyone's support in getting this out to the community. I hope everyone is as happy as I am with the results.

Please PM me to be added to the list below, so we can keep the 30 pages of thread to a minimum for Q&A. Thanks

Drives: something to compensate for size

Move the climate control down into the cubby? Is that what that is and how you did that?

yes. i used a 3rd generation eclipse HVAC unit with an oem radio relocation kit down below. my installer matched the harness from the 3G eclipse to the EVO (serious PITA to do) and did some custom fabrication to make it fit as if it were factory.

up top, i used an oem UK-SPEC 2-DIN dash panel that i obtained through my motorsport company with the oem pocket and infinity headunit. i have a jdm metallic-look overlay on order to match the console.

like i said in my first post, the next step is an eclipse AVN system. defi amber BF auxilliary gauges will be mounted on the pillar via a lotek 60mm triple gauge mount.

btw.. am i the first to do this?

Well...you went and did it now...you'd better post a how to on moving the climate controls down because EVERYONE is going to ask. I've been contemplating doing this myself but my car is garaged elsewhere and my tools are at work...so it was only a matter of time before someone beat me to it! LOL

Where did you source the JDM Dash panel for the Radio?

So the big question is...How did you relocate the HVAC?

Im planning a set-up similar to yours only using a touch screen in the newly aquired double DIN hole to control a mini PC. I'm in the process of modding a 99 Galant control to work in the lower cubby with the radio relocation kit.

edit........Dang. 7 replies before I even got my post up. I notice in your reply you said your installer matched the pigtails. Thats ecactly where Im at in my conversion with the Galant unit and it is a PITA. I need the FSM so I can match up the approiate wire for the AC, def. and recirculate. The cables for the fan and position selector matched up perfect. Once I figure what wire is which this swap will be a breeze and should'nt take anyone more than a couple hours to do. FWIW I got the galant unit for 30 bucks from a local junk yard. Ill post up a complete how too with pics when Im done.

'99 galant hvac controls should work as well; as will 3G eclipse (as i used) and montero controls.

the install was a *****. our affiliate sound shop took care of the install. i was going to go for it in my garage, but my installer is a pro and i don't trust anyone else with my car. my motorsport company has all the connections with sources in the UK for parts. it was just a matter of waiting for the availability for the part.

just a notice for anyone expecting to do this..

it is not cheap!!!

once i become a registered vendor with EvoM, i'll try to put together a package for interested members as well as some kind of discount at my friends sound shop for install for those who need it. we'll see.

I think if you can do it yourself it will be relatively cheap.

Radio relocation is around $70 and the control unit can be found for around $40 give or take. So say a little more than $100 and a little time splicing some wires and there you have it. Thats about what Im gonna have in mine anyway.

you forgot to add the cost of the eclipse wiring harness and of course, the 2-DIN dash panel..

that brings your material cost up from $100 to somewhere around $400.. i don't think thats cheap.

add labor cost for the install and you have a pretty pricey little mod..
