Is that so for any 20G Majin? (Deadbolt etc.) I thought these were true "bolt on" turbos.Majin said:ninjaboy76 pretty much said everything... the FP TD06H-20G is not a "bolt on" in the true sense of the word; it has to be made to fit (coolant feed line). even though i thought it was a pain to install, i love the power and torque.
i believe that the deadbolt is a direct bolt on with no issues at all, but the FP is not. the coolant feed line needed all sorts "coaxing" to get the turbo to fit.JJ18Sniper said:Is that so for any 20G Majin? (Deadbolt etc.) I thought these were true "bolt on" turbos.

the block had to be shaved down where one of the tranny's bolts connect to it AFTER getting the bend in the coolant feed line (a hard line) more smooth with a hammer. i have this all in my blog with pictures, check it out.
DEFINITELY NOT a direct bolt on in my car. to tell you the truth, i think the FP 20G is a nice turbo, but you can tell by the way it "directly bolts on" that it was slapped together to make work in the STi - soon after the install, i looked at the deadbolt, and the problems with the FP didn't look to be an issue with the DB from it's pictures. even vacuum fittings and oil lines on the FP were not facing the right direction when compared side by side to the VF39. you have to do all sorts of things to get the turbo to live there. even the TMIC needed to be shimmed up a little in order to fit the FP with that coolant feed line.
the oil feed line was easy; ordered the line from FP as well. the oil return line under the turbo was a pain to get on, but only because the amount of space under the turbo - fit-wise the oil return was not a problem.
