You know, I don't know yet lol. I'll know once the car is done. If I don't like it, I'm getting a TiAL instead and possibly modifying the charge pipe to have a v-band for it instead of the 2-bolt flange.

I'll be sure to post updates.

Time to send TopSpeed another email and see when my stuff will be done!

I replied to your PM.

It'll be easier to make your own thread in this EcoBoost and Forced Induction section stating all your questions and all the parts you have and all details of your build.

That way, many people can chime in on your direct thread and give you advice on what you're looking for.

Ordered FAL 12" slim fan i need.

TopSpeed has my parts finished and test fitting shortly, so I SHOULD have parts in soon!

I think I'll install the brakes and new oil lines and gauges first and then take another day for everything else!

Things are looking good!

-----------

PS: Is the head a good source of oil feed for the turbo? From one of the plugs that gets oil in front of the coil pack?

Ok cool, then I don't have to re-route it from my mocal plate!

I fed mine from the exact same location, I believe!

PS, you should ditch your EGR system and the DPFE sensors or wtf ever they're called sitting on the firewall and tune them out!
