Hi Rob, the outlets have arrived thanks, they won't fit the 7" VRSF though, was there supposed to be an expansion kit to get it onto the FMIC?

I haven't test fit them onto the car but a quick measure up looks like it would be long enough to make it all the way to the FMIC, so I'll need to cut the outlet a bit shorter, buy a metal joiner and reuse the inlet pipe from the VRSF

Is that what I should do?

Any help/advice appreciated

Thanks to Rob, a few emails with him and he's given me all the advice I need to sort the outlets, looking forward to digging in and fitting them this weekend

Thanks Rob

Sorry for the lack of updates guys. Been so busy amidst holidays- balancing the business and family has been very tough. Anyway these all have shipped. Hopefully tomorrow we have some time to send all of the emails with courier reference #'s. Will update the thread again once they are all sent.

not to hijack someone's thread but does anyone know of a workshop willing to do this install in Australia (NSW or QLD) .

I approached my regular mechanic and he (politely) turned down the job...im thinking to let them go and maybe go for inlets and outlets once my factory turbos give up or when works need to be done that require dropping the sub-frame...bit disheartened tbh...

Any advice on from other RHD users running inlets and outlets would be appreciated - ie: which kit you run and cost to install?

Thanks

No need to remove subframe for inlet, outlet or turbo install.

Tools needed for diy inlet/outlet.

Some sort of jack or ramps

13mm socket & ratchet to remove vacuum canisters

8mm socket or torx bit for boost solenoids removal and install

Security bit set to undo parts of old inlet( small torx bolts x about 5)

Hacksaw blade with handle

Flat head screw driver.

That's about it.

Get it tuned after don't run ots maps!!!!!!

Install would probably cost $1000 is my guess

This is a good start. Appreciate that sir. If someone has the time and could do a well documented DIY thread (with pictures) for the install, including the how to on using the provided large zip ties (to secure the hose in place around the steering shaft); we would love to work with you (before posting) and give a cash rebate $100 USD rebate for your efforts. If someone wants to do this shoot me an email.

There are a lot of these out there now and I assume the installs are going well as we have not heard anything yet (and what we have heard is good), but it still would be really nice to have something to reference customers to and especially for RHD where it is a bit more complicated due to the steering shaft.

I am also interested to hear how our RHD specific heat shield fits- as we designed it around a picture and not a RHD car fitment check (a RHD N54 car in the USA is akin a Unicorn).

We worked hard on these things and we hope they provide a good solution to what has been a very long problem, especially for the RHD crew.

Our stock is almost out now and we will be placing another order shortly for inventory.

Thanks,
Rob

Uploaded about 10 photos and diy on my thread.
Most important and time saving part I have is showing where to drill the holes to secure the rear outlet around the steering column.

No means to detailed but it will help.

Hills Eurohaus will be fitting my intercooler, will get them to do the outlets at the same time. If they refuse, will give it a go myself.

Thanks Brule for documenting, look forward to your post with the destructions.

Also, Hoper is also installing these in his thread and to date he has documented and taken pictures of his progress. This will also be very helpful.

The boys at Hills Eurohaus will be doing mine also. They won't refuse the work and will do a great job as always.

OEM style circlip adapter, 2.5" to 2.75" universal adapter, and 2.5" to 3" universal adapter; all available at an extra cost (these are all custom CNC and anodized as well). Each order needs to identify their IC selection at time of ordering so that we can tailer the hardware to your specific needs.

There is a SS304 Heat shield option as well along with a Custom RB CNC Wastegate solenoid bracket anodized black, this is at $100 extra (with purchase of the outlet) but we are not even 100% of fitment on RHD at this time due to the steering shaft.

Pending on quantity of purchasers here- we could do a bit better- but we are no where near that point at the moment. To those who want added (or removed) from the list please let me know asap.

Thanks,
Rob

Hi Rob is this price still available?

Are these worth buying? Having my.VTT stage 2+ turbos fitted in a couple of weeks.
Is there much hp/tq to be gained?
Is the spooling affected?

Thanks.
