I sure will call you when I install it Steve,and yeah that intercooler is pretty big too. :thumbup:

You think everyone is working in their garage?J/K Matt,you know how busy I was before,I order this thing back in late oct,and I don't have the $$$ for it in FULL,so Nigel let me paid him 1K to hold the deal and pay him the rest in dec,plus his been out of the country and just came back,that's why I didn't get it until NOW. :thumbup:

Hey nacho,don't worry this time,I'm also BOOST and prolly need to run low boost to get him this time,if everything work perfectly. :cheers:

That looks like the PFI kit. Have fun installing it. It can be done in about 2 days. I thought the hardest part was trimmimng the bumper (metal) for the IC and tapping into the valve cover for the oil return. You will have a blast with it when its all completed.

also - those exhaust clamps are POS. We tightened it down as hard as possible - and yet, the piping came lose and drug down the freeway. I highly suggest you get them welded on - you'll thank me later. Make sure you clock the turbo correctly - or it'll leak from oil not draining properly. Be super careful when you drill the hole and tap the valve cover for the oil return nipple - clearances are very tight - i mean you have about 1mm each way before you fuck up so measure, and measure again.

Call me if you need any help.... That install wasn't hard - but definately had many, o shit we gotta go to home depot/ auto zone a million times.

For real,but if you weld it together,won't it make it impossible to remove the system later or is it possible unless you saw it off?Well my turbo came pre clocked according to Nigel,cause I asked him to,is that why your turbo leak oil from clocking it?Damn I sure wish the kit come with a template or something for the drain return nipple.May I ask why you have to run to home depot/ auto zone a million times,cause I thought the kit come with every thing???Well I sure will paid more attention when I drill the valve cover.Thanx alots for the info. :thumbup:

well the clocking depends on where you are draining the oil to. You need to clock differently depending on if you tap the valve cover - or if you tap the upper oil pan(recommended). The kit comes with everything supposedly - but there were fittings and small things that I had to get locally. Also... if you want - i can drill a valve cover off of one of my spare motors here and send it to ya if you'll ship me some cash and the fitting... unless you wanna tap the oil pan - in which case - theres plenty of spots to tap to.

Also as far as welding - weld the pipes that will have more strain on them - like the turbo exhaust dump piping mainly. If you jack the car up you shouldnt have a problem removing piping even after they are welded.

frank ya you should tap the upper oil pan if you can and not the valve cover. Also see if you can get the exhuast welded together or like matt said get some exhaust flanges welded on there.

Hey Frank did you get the mandral bent or non-mandrla bent reverse y-pipe?

seximagtr,according to the pics in the kit,I got to drill one hole on the upper oil pan(feed hole)already,why don't they just put in the instruction to tap TWO holes in the upper oil pan together,instead of one on the upper oil pan and one on the valve cover for the return?????? :rolleyes:
