They say 6-pucks are bad for longevity. How many miles did you put on it?

Well i dropped off FF for a while, just had way too much going on and not enough time to get the clutch in the car. But im finally back to working on the SVT turbo project. Put the Clutch Masters FX400 six puck clutch setup and the torsen LSD in the car. Went actually quite well. I used a post off here for LSD install instructions that were great. Now its time to get back in touch with Tom and get my J&S and wideband logging and get to tuning again. I think i wanna up the boost a bit now.

Well the adapter works great. used a bent section of 2.5 in exhaust tubing, and heated and crushed it till it was oval shaped and fit to the t3 flanges nicely. It set the turbo front to clear the sensor that reads the fly wheel teeth and cleared the PCV hosing. But the down side is the stock fans didnt come close to fitting. so i used the biggest slim fans i could. And turns out they dont pull enough air through the radiator. it runs hot in slow traffic and when idled for an extended period of time in the summer. but while driving it runs at normal temp. The turbo im using is pretty big also. a smaller one might have cleared better.
The only other problem i have is i cant keep the damn exhaust bolts to stay tight. lock tight and lock washers dont make a difference.

OK , thats good to know about the slim fans. You could go FAA on them , get some drilled head military grade bolts and safety wire them. Use stainless wire. Plus it will look good. We do it every day on the planes at American Airlines...

I dont understand the issue with the SPA manifold and things not fitting , a simple exh side on turbo change may help to get your stock fans back on and things working properly
