Description

This is an easy install. Everything is in the same location as on the factory turbo, and bolts right on. Those of you who have never installed or haven't upgraded a turbo yet might find this video more useful than those who have. Torque specs from the factory service manual are listed for what's most important. It's imperative that new turbo bolts are used with new FACTORY turbo washers. They're a specially designed spring washer, and are single-use. Use of other kinds of washers may cause bolts to break or vibrate loose. This turbo was on the car prior to this installation, but it received a port job to match the burly EVO III manifold. We installed a head-feed turbo oil feed line rather than use the factory hard lines connected to the oil filter housing. Some argue that the oil pressure from the filter housing can be harmful to the life of the turbo, but IMO, that only applies to turbos with full circumference bearing center sections. Either way, the Stainless Steel line is cool. I'll post the part number for the plug needed to block off the old line location.
