well we hit a snag on Saturday installing the kit.

My goal was to run a TMIC with this turbo, but it doesn't look like that will be the case

Pretty bummed, but I guess I should have told BNM that I wanted to run a TMIC so he could have maybe shortened the uppipe a bit so it would sit lower, but most people run FMIC with a rotated kit.

Now comes the fab part where I setup my old stock location FMIC to work with a rotated turbo. after doing precise measurements "aka eyeing it' I need a 90 degree coupler and then a 90 degree aluminum pipe to connect the two together.

I was hoping to see the TMIC setup too. I'm surprised you didn't tell them that was your plan.

When I left your house, my feet were damn near frozen. DC shoes don't offer much insulation from the cold garage floor.

yeah chock it up to ignorance on my part, didn't know that was something I needed to state. I dont blame them considering 90% of people go FMIC with rotated kits. so oh well.

and yeah, we stopped about an hour after you left. once we mocked up the turbo and all that and realized the TMIC wouldn't work. we got lunch and Eric did an oil change on his audi and I went inside.

I doubt ill have it all together this weekend. I ordered a 90 degree 4AN fitting for the turbo feed and when i get home tonight I am going to measure some piping to see what size silicone intake stuff I need.

no big deal, she will still be fun.

I agree... The EFR turbos are pretty sexy.
