Re: MK'S Limited *Updated 6/17 The Build Is Complete! GT52 Results!*
thanks alot man...you should definatlely get the samco instead!!!! i was going to post a full review of the aps vs. the samco, but i've been so fuggin busy its rediculous, but within the week i will write a extensive review...MK your car = Teh Sex! :tup: I'm actually thinking about getting a Samco Inlet instead of the APS due to all the fittament problems people have with them. :tdown:
get rid of that ****!!!!!! its like a walk in the park for the samco vs. climbing mount everest...MK are you really going to make me get rid of my aps inlet....?
Car is looking sick bro! Can't wait to see it in person
Yeah but only the strong can climb Mt. Everest.....get rid of that ****!!!!!! its like a walk in the park for the samco vs. climbing mount everest...
But should I be expecting this issue with the stock turbo?? I'm assuming you were installing the inlet once your gt52 was on right?the hard part of the aps install is not removing the manifold, its getting the stupid offset connector to join from the turbo to the inlet pipe....trust me the aps sucks ass....its no better than the samco, and the samco is 1000000000x's easier to get in.....
Translated: I don't know how and didn't want to because it's a pain in the ass.as many of you know im meticulous with my car and i wont let anyone touch my car to work on it, however after working for 4 weeks straight on my build, i decided i was not in the mood to do a clutch job for another week so i just had P&L do it.
my guess is that you probably wont have any of the fitiment issues i ran into, its just that a big stock location turbo creates all those issues...But should I be expecting this issue with the stock turbo?? I'm assuming you were installing the inlet once your gt52 was on right?
you only dont have to pull the manifold on the samco if you have a 07, other wise you have to because usually the fuel pressure regulator is in the way, but on the 07's its on the outside by the fuel rail....No mani pulls for the samco
this is my first replacement....How many clutches have you gone through with this car?!
we'll do the brake swap friday whenever u want...good job on the clutch. now gimme back my brakes!!!!
just to let you know this dyno that is a dynojet is a heart braker dynojet....P&L's dyno reads lowwwwwwww......anyways who cares about #'s...i agree with you, the aps inlet is not junk, but it sure is a ***** to get in....after struggling with it for 5 days straight i was like f-this!!!! and the samco slipped on in less than 5 minutes....thats why i love it...Nice numbers MK. Nice numbers for that dynojet.[/edit] The numbers are where you wanted them, so good stuff.
Too bad about the issues on the track though but glad the new clutch sorted that out.
I think you ****ed something on the APS inlet install. The GT52 and the APS inlet will work. I'm proof positive of that. Mine went in without a hitch, with the exact same turbo... but different UP/manifold. So something must have been off right from the start since I've had no issues. Yeah it's a PITA to pull the manifold, but it's probably the best inlet out there. Hard pipe > silicone.
So to those that are discounting the APS inlet because of MK's experience, take it with a grain of salt. It's not "complete junk." A LOT of people are running it without issue on a variety of turbos, including the one MK is running.
With that said though, I will give you the fact that the install is way harder than a silicone pipe.
Anyway bro, nice numbers :tup:, nice wheels :tup:, nice install :tup:, and glad everything worked out for you.
i let him borrow my pads at the track. turns out he didn't need them for too long...^ Nice man.
What's the deal with the brakes? I probably missed it, but why is nonissan wanting his brakes back?
