As many of you know, I am currently undergoing the t28 turbo swap. I have just about wrapped everythng up, but I encountered another problem. When I went to install the turbo inlet pipe it did not want to screw In without pushing alot of pressure on the headlight. Hopefully I can have this done tomorrow.
Any suggestions???

sounds like you'll have to do some modding. Post up a pic of what you are working with

damn chris... do you ever catcha break? fwiw my tip pushes on my headlight a bit. I cut a piece of hosing and put it inbetween just incase it wants to put a hole in my tip.

well it seems like it is pushing pretty hard. The tip is metal so that doesn't help much. I am going to remove the light for now but I don't really want to have to cut the bottom of my light

I dont remember the TIP that came with the PES T28 kit rubbing on my head light back when I had it in 2001-2002. It should pass under the head light. Did you try clocking the compressor housing so that it no longer hits the head light?

^^^ shit that would be so much work because I have everything in

Why? You just loosen the bolts on the back of the compressor housing and then just turn it to see if the TIP will go down a little more and not hit the head light housing. You dont need to pull everything out to do this.

I know that, so was the PES kit I had on my car.

well you can only clock it very little w/o removing the c clip on the wastegate actuator arm, which is a bitch to get at now...

post up some pics. might be easier for us to help if we could see exactly what you got going on. could be something simple.

would you say your TIP sits that low? I know we got it to work on marked001's car way back in the day; can't remember if we trimmed the headlight or not, but it did all come together.

ok, I just reclocked the turbine housing. Should it be fine if I reclocked it?

yea it should be fine, make sure the wastegate arm isnt at a big angle and it doesnt bind and you should be set [up]

pardon my ignorance, but how would clocking the turbine housing allow for better TIP fitment

isn't the turbo inlet concentric to the shaft?, wouldn't you just be rotating it allong the same axis?

or does it have more to do with the fitnment of the vac/ boost lines to the TIP?
