So 99% of my shipment arrived today. I put in 3 or 4 hours and got about 60% of the install done. I'll have most of the hardware installed by tomorrow night, but I won't be able to fire it up until the overpipe comes in
This is the actual turbo kit, the blowoff valve, drop in filter, grimmspeed gaskets, and grimmspeed hood struts ... which are an absolute gem. I should of got them first. I also have some OEM Subaru front pipe and overpipe gaskets to replace those as they go in also.
On my way to Speedfactor to pick up the goods, I stopped by Jackson and had them weld on an o2 bung onto the T1R front pipe I picked up yesterday
For anyone that's curious, this is what's in the box. All of the small hardware is individually packaged in separate bags to make the install a little easier. The instructions however, may as well be in chinese because they are crap.
Intercooler mounted. Nice and stealthy! Unfortunately, my oil cooler is going to sit in front of it, but I may try and relocate it if I can get some ventilation elsewhere for it.
The most interesting part of this turbo setup is the oil scavenging pump and reservoir setup. This bolts up to the back of one of the cam plates and is mechanically driven so there is always sufficient oil moving to the turbo, even at idle.
Here it is ready to go in. The o2 sensors are on, the main charge pipe, one of the oil lines, etc
That's pretty much where I stopped. I gashed my thumb open pretty badly on the useless **** of a gasket that came on the downpipe. My old rugby first aid training started to wear off (polysporin+gauze+hockey tape), so I decided to call it a night.
I still have a **** load of stuff to do
