    How the hell do you warranty oil? LOL

    I am NOT taking this engine out until I get another engine built to accept the TTE's I wishing to get one day. Although now I do have the knowledge to do it much quicker, I simply don't want to and that's why almost everything going in is brand new.

    The fifth engine will be delivered tomorrow and I'll perform a leak down on it right away. If the numbers don't match up with the worse cylinder on the other engine, cylinder 2, I'll send it back. I am so done with this car....

    Can anyone tell me if the only differences between these two installation kits are the turbo to downpipe gaskets:

    Also, I need all the washers and studs, but I don't want to source them individually. Are the manifold to turbo bolts universal to aftermarket turbos? If so, I'll buy one of these kits and call it a day.

    Pretty sure only the gaskets are different.

    Thanks for the reply.

    These small things add up quick as I might have to spend another $200 in gaskets and washers.....

    So thanks Justin. Now lets see if it's going to take me the same ~40 minutes. LOL..... LOL.....

    I wish I could fire the engine up today.

    Can someone confirm that the angle of these down pipes is ok and wouldn't negatively affect the lining up of the exhaust:

    HOLY CRAP!!! I don't know why the image came out like that. I'll try to fix it.

    Those were my brand new exhaust. Now onto my inlets that I paid extra for from the turbo manufacturer.

    I had to modify it to make it fit 'this close'. Look at the brackets on the inlets against the engine itself.





    Every part of this engine replacement has been a nightmare. Don't get me started on the broken tabs.....lol
    I laugh because it's either that or burn this car to the GROUND!!!!

    The pictures don't really tell the whole story because I twisted and pushed every piece and it simply wouldn't line up.

    Back when I put on full 3" DP mine looked very similar. Luckily for me a good friend owns an exhaust shop. Had to bend the mid pipes to connect them to the stock exhaust.

    Damn, that's not very good news because I don't have such friends....lol
    Another difference is the fact that this is going to be attached to the rest of the same exhaust and not to stock, so hopefully they compensate for the angle.

    Needless to say that when I put this engine back in and if the exhaust doesn't line up, I'll me more than pissed because by now, you would think that aftermarket parts for a 17 year old car should fit without modification.

    Bolt on the midpipes while the engine is out and see if they line up well. As long as they come out as a parallel line with the expected distance between them it should be easy to trim the length in case at all required.

    There is a slight bend in the mid pipe on that side - you're probably okay. There's also some play in the flex joint.

    I might try this. Thanks.

    Good to know. Thanks for the info.

    Knowing me, I think I'll just put it in and see how it fits while in/on the car. That way IF any modification is needed, the calculations/adjustments can be made without any guess work.
    Also, keep in mind that I had to shave a little off the transmission mount because that side was hitting. The other side has a 1 mm gap.
