Snap this pic to save some others headaches, when I took the coolant lines off the OEM turbos I must have pryed on the flange and it slight bent it and when installed on the RB's W/spacers it caused a gap. I fixed it by reinstalling the lines on the turbos and tightening down and bending flange back (do not do this with Rbs since it could strip the threads). I rather strip a OEM than a RB LOL!!!



I get what to do now, there are 2 spacers (1 for bolt stud & 1 for the line)....the upper line is made to seat into the stock turbo ( longer) so when you put the lines in on the RB flat flange there is a gap because it can not sink in.

Big thanks to: "cstavaru" for his input
