Turbo install help
 
I started installing my Top Speed Turbo kit.

1. I did not get any bolts to connect the down pipe to the turbo housing. Does anyone know what size bolts go into the housing to hold the downpipe on? Its 4 bolts.

2. What did everyone that turbo their focus do with the power steering cooler? I unbolted it from the bumper and thought about just cutting the brackets off it and sandwich it between the radiator and intercooler. Any other thoughts?

3. Anyone with a Top Speed kit - Does the blow off valve sit upside down? If you look at my photo of my piping mock up the pipe with the BOV, does that look correct?

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 http://i338.photobucket.com/albums/n...c01/IMG207.jpg
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

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!

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

ZXthrizzle05 01-26-2013 09:23 PM

i just noticed you have an 01 as well lol. are you running an atx ?

J0EC00L 01-26-2013 09:37 PM

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.

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

Because it fit best that way.

I dont see a problem with it yet or possible at all.

Do you?
