    Sorry some pics turned out crappy


    This is where the turbo sits.


    Just a few pipes

    The hole I cut out behind the bird for better airflow for the intercooler, my dremel died so I didn't get to finish cleaning it up.

    what kit is that? it looks a bit like the hi-flo kit but that ovaled piping does not.

    That downpipe and crossover are close to steering stuff, I would wrap everylast bit of those hot pipes up if it were mine.

    Kit is from HP Performance. All the hot pipes have been jet-hot coated so the heat is minimum. I thought the same thing but after I drove it for hours it wasn't that hot but I am still going to wrap it up in a few places just to play it safe.

    Thanks, I can't hit full boost, I need a new 2 bar map sensor, so for now I just putt-putt- around.

    How do route the oil for the turbo? Is there a scavenge pump with the kit or is it high enough for gravity to scavenge the oil. If its just gravity Id watch it. Check the exhaust for oil after a couple long hard pulls. I work on small airplanes and about 3 out of 4 turbo failures are oil related. Also, do you have to adjust your timing curve under boost? Just curious. That kit looks sick tho

    the return is returned by gravity, I am keeping a real close eye when I go under boost. Yes my tuner set-up my car so it is adjusted under boost. Thanks.

    I got it a few months ago, I was the 2nd kit they made and they didn't have any instructions with it and they screwed up what parts to ship, so it took a few months of calling and telling them the parts I needed but eventually everything got worked out, but I had to install the entire thing without instructions and fabricate alot of other things to make everything fit.

    LOL Ya I have never seen a turbo kit that actually fits 100% some better than others but you will always have to fabricate pieces. Thats what puts the fun in the final results!! Makes it custom. Looks good man hope it runs as well also!!!

    around $4900, I have it set at 8psi for now, motor is full forged 346, I still run the MS4 cam from when I was N/A and so far it runs amazing, they are turbo headers came with the kit.
