I've had a couple fitment issues. I've been impressed with the vband clamps ability to bend the kit and force connections. It should be noted that I have upgraded vband clamps. Really I can't say until I see if I have any leaks or not. Also I have an older 1st gen kit. Odds are you'd get a new FF kit. So can't really compare. The turbo fitment is my biggest issue thus far and I don't think it would be as much of an issue if i went with the regular 70mm turbo.So overall how was the fitment/quality of the kit? In a few years i am considering going with an on3 turbo
Well I got it in there. Made little notches for the fan wiring to tuck into and i think itll be ok. Next issue is the down pipe. It is nearly touching the fan towards the bottom. I will probably end up shaving some of the shroud off. I may end up cutting the exhaust and taking 1/2 inch or so out of it to enable it to slide back a bit. Any suggestions for the PCV system? I've spent hours reading countless threads on what to do with the PCV system once boosted. So many people say different things I really don't know what I'm going to do with it yet. I know I can't leave it in its "stockish" configuration or I'll be feeding boost to the valve covers.I say you should just go with Slim fans. Keep the big turbo and all. The stock fan on these cars is just so freaking huge its ridiculous.
Thanks man. Yea I haven't tightened them all down yet. The fitment really hasn't been that bad. The merge pipe on the drivers side was the worst, but the vband was able to pull it together. Hopefully that doesn't equate to a leak. I threw 2.5 inch exhaust gaskets in those two spots so we will see when I fire it up. The downpipe issue will hopefully be ok after shaving the shroud and maybe some wrap. Worst case, i'll cut the exhaust and take 1/2 inch or so out of it. The PCV is my next concern. I emailed my tuner to see what he suggests.I dont know if you read the other installs on the On3 kit but alot of people were having fitment issues till they realized to loosen all the piping and making adjustments then tightening back up. Dont know if you have tried that or if you have them all tight already. Just thought Id say something about it. looking good though!
Thanks. Start working on yours! It will probably be a bit simpler since its the FF kit.nice progress so far! im working on getting my FF kit installed. i also went with the 76, nice to see you managed to get it to fit. ill see how mine fits soon...just gotta stop being lazy and get to working on it lol.
I'd like to get it all coated, but really don't want to spend that money on this kit. If there was a local place that could do just the DP that may be something I'd consider. Before I take a hammer to anything I'd just cut a little section out of the exhaust further back to let is all slide back. I could even just put one of those 3" exhaust band clamp deals on it so I have some wiggle room later if needed. IDK yet.I just reread your post. I see the issue lol. Gen1 kit. Just take a few and look at everything, Youll figure out the best route. If I had my eyes and hands on it I could help more. Plus you havnt wrapped your downpipe yet so Its possible to melt the fan lol. Might be an idea to take it off and get a bend in it. I dont think it would be to bad to just heat the pipe up right where its hitting the fan and put a dent in it.
When I had plans of the on3 in my mind I was going to have the whole hotside coated just to keep heat down. But at least your working at it. Hope you stick with it and keep us posted.
Watching someone boost is like being married and hearing your single friend talk about all the hot ass chicks hes bangin! Got to live through ya! lol
Its all personal preference man! I obviously prefer turbo, but a KB sounds sweet too.This really makes me want to boost mine! but im still stuck.. dont know whether i want turbo, supercharger or nitrous... I have a empty block and heads for my bullitt just collecting dust because i cant make up my mind lol
Idk i'll probably end up selling them. Lol I know i keep busting them up.I didnt see anything about it but what you doing with those LTs? Still lookin good man! Lol slow down or your hands are going to be to beat up to finish ol
Its a pmas. I actually bought it off corral. Its blow through.OP what kind of MAF is that? I know you said slot style but where did you get it and is that a blow through or draw through setup?
