RB/OEM turbo install thread:

Been searching a lot on the web for install hints, tips, pics Ect (if this is posted somewhere delete this) and would have loved to find all of this in one spot so decided to post some links (have more but do not know if it is allowed LOL!!) here and hope other who have done this install can contribute as well. Anthing about this install is good (What to do first, second, what not to do ect): Rob beck did say NOT to go crazy on the bolt on the coolant/oil feed lines...they do not need much force.

Big thanks to "Rob Beck" & "M3Tuner" for there help & advice during this install thus far!

Thread of mine with some good reference pics also:
