One problem, is if you look at the picture, the gasket doesn't even look like it would fit over the diverter plate in the DP. I think APS's site said it was a template, but I would hope for the price of their stuff it would come with the gasket pre-made.

Hey guys, I just istalled a 3" APS TBE. I will try to explain what I found out. Yes the wg is divorced and as far as I know there was no gasket between the turbo and the DP. The only thing I had to do was to reduce the length of the metal separator by about 7mm. Otherwise there could not be a leak proff seal. The instructions explain it very well and all I used was a bench grinder and that was it.
Now, the car seems a lot faster, and the sound is fantastic.
Hope to have answered your questions, if not pm me or what ever...:lol:

Sounds good. If you can provide sound clips that would be great as I would love to hear it.

Alright, I just bough a dig cam and I am not very good with it yet. So I will take a few shots and since the camera has a video clip, I will try to get a sound clip also. This may take me a while but I will get back to you all :lol:

No the cardboard pieces are not gaskets. They are templates. I'm not sure what that one on the right is but the left one is to aid in cutting the heat shield.
