Okay, well when they release the kit, demand that its as easy as a throw up tent. You know, the ones that come bundled up and you toss them into the air and unpack themselves. I want it to be PnP so I just open my hood and throw the turbos inside and shut the hood. Oh and I want it to make 600hp and cost less then 500 dollars.

Reminds me of when the dealer replaced my turbos.

One of the oil lines wasn't tight and had been leaking for a while.

I guess those fittings are a lot easier to get to at the factory.

Keep an eye on that!

you don't need the oil... you still have your water (unlike what i'll have)....

hopefully it's a water line in the way of the oil line.... (so i'll have at least some benefit from the no water)

Cool man, glad to see you back on the road. Let us know how the SOTP feel is if you can. Looking forward to the results. I'll be all over this if you hit north of 500! Wishful thinking but you never know!

Hitting north of 500 is definitely not going to happen, maybe closer to 500 than 400 on meth etc... but on pump gas it will be around what AMS was making most likely (on a dynojet), but that is just a random guess based on the few details I know.

almost there.......




this thing was pretty cool:

they get the axle in? sometimes those circlips can be a bitch. lmk if u need a new one im sure i have them laying around. yeah i agree all those oil/coolant lines on the turbos are a bitch. takes just over a day to r&r turbos on a lift i could only imagine on jackstands

good luck! i hope it works out for you!
