I looked up a picture of the parts online to help me visualize the bolt position. So from reading the posts saying they feel the difference-- how? Provides moderately increased boost, revised fuel and spark, and throttle is opened over an extended range. Spray penetrating oil on to every bolt you can, including the heat shield bolts and the O2 sensors. I bought some jbweld but sold the mani before i got the chance to do that. The first portion of the installation is super easy. I see in Valet tune you make it smaller.
The motor would be choked and you'd get no power. There are no mad 30lb-ft gains to be had anywhere in the rev range, but I can easily see 3-4lb-ft gains through out the rpm band with them removed. Other than that the car started right away and ran. You currently have 0 posts. Below is a gift of the old turbo.
I suppose the long needle nosed pliers were pretty important too for removing the hose clips down near the turbo inlet. Post 23 in there will explain what they do. If I was that desperate for custom reground cams, I'd break out my dremel, bastard file, steel wool, and use a maxi pad for polishing. Lots of folks online say to remove them while the engine is hot. Logged Honestly, I think you're wasting your time. I managed to mess up my O2 sensor threads on both sensors.
Dont do something you dont know what the consequences will result in. Have you tried if upping of speed limiter really works? Yes, I know, you can get around that with just a relay and some wiring shenanigans. If you had researched here effectively, you would have found that. Will this work with a unichip and tuning? This build up will eventually lead to a loss of compression, loss of horsepower and ultimately leading to costly and time-consuming repairs to correct the problem. And yes I have thrown the P2006 and P2009 codes. A bigger turbo and exhaust? But if you're expecting anything from it. I know I used a few extensions for those, but I don't remember it being super crazy.
I thought I would share my turbo replacement experience with the Reddit community. A number of heat shield bolts can't be seen. The dealer refused to replace the turbo under warranty. Just need to re tune. Naa, it's not worth the effort. Wouldnt it make it the same as the 626 mani in essence? This is where that 8mm ratcheting wrench came in handy. It might even throw a check engine light.
But has this mod even proved worthwhile for those that have done it? Pampered it with Royal Purple last weekend, though.

The ledges and half butterflies pose a restriction and add turbulence. You'll see how much of the runner they obstruct. I don't remember the number, but it is very, very small.
I bought some jbweld but sold the mani before i got the chance to do that. This is what I do with them. This is the flex head ratchet I used, I think it came from home depot: Just make sure you don't try to force a tool to do a job where another tool could do it better. However it does restric the amount of air that can go through. The control sent to the wires needs to be modified but the plug is correctly located and sized. One tip that I've learned over the years is to screw fasteners back in to their original location once you remove a part.
A quality metric socket set, especially 8,10,12, and 14mm. It really does make a difference. Found it today, thinking this was the reason why i am only hitting 8lbs of boost. Once off idle, it opens up fully and stays open. Pretty sure I could obtain better results from that than from whatever no-name company you would use. They remove it or keep it opne to allow teh maximum amount of air to get in the cylinder at all times.
