Well the 08 AWD (1 year only) came with only the 3.5 motor and trans mount pattern was exclusive to that size motor. Also had a different rear subframe (a bolt in item) and driveshaft. A 2.4 motor probably won't bolt to an EVO X's trans, you'd have to do both OR be sure of that mating point of your 2.4 and donor trans. Also not sure dimensionally of EVO's length to Avenger wheelbase.for rear driveshaft.
There is a LOT to do in such a conversion. As I recall the 08 AWD Avenger also used a very different fuel tank for drivetrain clearances. And replacement tanks are harder than "hensteeth" to find.
Good luck to you should you "dive in" for this and keep us informed on progress. You would be the first to document such a conversion here. :)
