A wise man once said, "Yeah man every little thing you can do to make the actual turbo install as easy as possible."
Thanks guys. Glad I could be a bit of inspiration. It’s pretty daunting when you first get started wrenching. Haha I dunno about a wise man ...more like the voice of 20/20 hindsight. Little bit of buy once - cry once sprinkled in there. Finish with a dash of: Fast, Cheap, Reliable - Pick two.Lmao, damn Kris! You told this man to shoot for the moon. 😉
Not an issue at all. You just won’t get the benefit of grouping the similar exhaust pulses together. If it was twinscroll mani and turbine, it would spool just a bit quicker.XS turbo is not twin scroll, but my exhaust manifold is. is that a problem?
Yep 1/8npt for the boost nipple.Also gotta drill and tap the boost nipple on the turbo itself. 1/8 NPT I surmise
I think it has an internal flow restrictor as well. So don’t use an old feed line with a restrictor. Verify that, of course.turbo has it threaded directly inside vs the old one's sandwich plate.
