redfocusdrver build looks great, top speed makes great kits. When I had my turbo kit on my 03 i ran my intercooler in front of my ps cooler, figured i wanted any air entering my engine to be as cool as possible, and it looks really cool.

PumkinSvt Why did you put the ps cooler in front of the intercooler?

ZXthrizzle05 mine were different. good luck with everything else. when my buddy carl aka cjohn364 dynod his car with his atx it was like 202whp. im sure its been fixed since I jus thope you don't ge the same problem

J0EC00L Yep!

This year I am doing a new built motor and Lentech.

I thought I would throw the turbo on the stock motor for now for the hell of it.

I had a thought that the turbo housing down pipe bolts would be the same as the exhaust manifold and they are! So I dont have to figure that out anymore.

ZXthrizzle05 i just noticed you have an 01 as well lol. are you running an atx ?
01-26-2013 09:22 PM
ZXthrizzle05 idk if I have that kind of cooler in my 01 but there was a lot of hydraulic lines I remember fussing around with and tucked behind the intercooler

J0EC00L I got it. I put the PS cooler in front of the Intercooler. Then I will make a couple brackets to mount it there to the bumper.

I think this is it, everything is lining up perfect!

ZXthrizzle05 I believe the bolts are m1.85 size. I had to call precision to double check. since mine is a four bolt discharge as well. and the ps line for the hot side tube I bent it upward to allow more clearance. I have that pipe tucked as far up towards the radiator as possible. when I first had everything installed I thought I was going to run over a speed bump and have the pipe yanked off
here is an old old pic last year
then I tucked the hose and that pipe is no where near as visible anymore. and doesn't matter the direction of the bov, and btw good luck drilling into the crash bar, I went through like 4 bits before I bought a diamond bit
