      Thanks Mike.

      The main reason for this thread and all the pics is b/c I know this is such an unknown territory for me, and I just dove right in and did it. While I'm not done - and it hasn't been easy...the point is, that if I can do it than many others can...
      So, I'll try and take pics on every step I take and try to keep them from going to red X's so that others can learn before they get started on their turbo vr6 project

      Guys,
      What's this "nipple" sticking out of the last pipe that goes up and into the turbo (the first pipe out of the turbo going towards the inlet of the i/c???

      My guess is you just need to cap it off, right?

      So, WHAT DO I USE TO CAP IT OFF AND WHERE CAN I GET IT???

      Here's the pic (it's the only 'nipple' you can see sticking out):

      Thanks guys...

      Home Depot sell rubber pipe caps... look hard and youll find them.

      I think that the nipple in question though is supposed to either re-route the BOV - OR - what about the crankcase breather?

      I dunno...
      What about the crankcase breather????

      Doesn't it just go back to "stock" the way it was hooked up before?

      sweet pics.. I would love to turbo right now
      If you need a AC condensor let me know. I got rid of everything with the s/c install

      wouldnt want to plumb that badboy up to crank case breather. Very bad idea unless you want 15psi being pushed into the top of your head.. LOL

      I got a baggy of table leg caps (rubber from home depot in hardware area) so did Sofarkingfast and his is still holding. Push them on and clamp it on. Nice pics. I totally agree on how intimidating it can be starting a VR6T project thats why i started the VR6turbo group site. I hope it grows and helps more and more people with the "surprises" that come up building a VR6T. Good work

      This has GOT to be made into a sticky thread.

      That nipple is for Idle stabiliser valve on OBD-1 cars using stock mangement,you can go to NAPA and ask for (heater core plugs)or heater core outlet nipple plugs.........they are rubber caps that fit perfectly and you can hoseclamp them.

      Hey guys,
      Thanks for all the good info on these nipple plugs.

      VR6 Mole,
      I'll let you know...as I def want to keep my a/c and I'll be NEEDING an a/c condensor.
      And you are close.
      I'm just west of Eagle, PA - straight shot down from you on Rt100.

      I'll take a pic of what I get and post it up here so that others will get this stuff the first time around w/o having to post up like I did...Through all the searching and reading that is one thing that I never saw a post on.

      Ok,
      All of my plumbing is now done (basically)...

      The only thing(s) really left to do is put back on the stock bumper (all cut up ), have the muffler shop do my dump tube for me (will take pics) and also have them do my exhaust...

      But I'll have the oil pan back on tonight and new fluids (oil and coolant) in and will start her up.

      Oh, one last thing...

      Anybody have a diagram of ALL of the VACUUM lines I need to hook up here???

      I'm confused...I see two nipples sticking out of my BOV and one or two coming out of my WG (I think...although I haven't looked at my WG for a while)...

      Do I just route all of these back into my "vacuum system" in any way I can (ie. using brass Y connectors and just plugging them all in)?

      You only use the bottome Nipple on the BOV and the WG.

      No, I left them open. No need to cap them off.

      This is WRONG about the BOV. You use the top nipple on the BOV and the bottom nipple on the WG. You don't have to cap the lower nipple unless you are rerouting.

      This has helped me out greatly!!! I have the same kit but with the T04 and cant get any help from ATP. Hopefully will be on the road this week.

      Ok,
      So my next step is to get the downpipe connected to either the flange on my stock CAT or to get it connected to a test pipe...

      Problem is, the flange on my 3" DP is huge and my exhaust (w/o cat) is a TT 2.5"...

      So, how long of a test pipe do I need (to go from downpipe to AFTER the cat) and where can I get that large flange so that I can just have the muffler shop weld it in place for me...?????

      I heard Pep Boys (much like autozone) has some misc exhaust parts...do you think I can find what I need there?


      Later,


    23. 05-15-2004 09:59 AM #93
      Go to an exhaust shop, they should have a flange. That's where I got one for my 3". Take your cat or something to get the bolt pattern.

      Summit sells reducers that can be welded to pipes to reduce the size.

      Thanks buddy.
      Found a local muffler shop that did the welding for me today. Car is about done.

      I'll be firing her up tomorrow or during the week.

      I fired up the car yesterday. I need to get the car to the muffler shop again b/c the guy didn't weld something perfectly. So, I'll be putting the front end back on today and get it "roadworthy" so nobodys' looking at me crazy....
      I'll hit pep boys up for some exhaust parts to get me a bit quieter for the trip.

      Car should be done this week. I've got a CLEARANCE issue with where the short U bend pipe goes into the TB. It is hitting the turbo really badly!!!! Any tips guys? I'm just going to hammer the hell out of it today until it fits?????

      Short Runner intake manifold is my only suggestion.

      Matt,
      There has to be an easier way of doing this??? I've seen these ATP stage 2 kits installed w/o the short runners w/o any "visable" issues so someone has to know how to do it.

      I'm getting 'interference' w/ my intake pipe that goes into the TB with the Turbo...

      I guess I could get a longer silicone connector and just use that as a flexible connector...my only fear is that under hard engine movement it may pop off...

      Any more suggestions???

      I'll post up pics this afternoon of what I'm upagainst...

      Well,
      She's running!
      I've got some running issues right now but that's a tuning problem. Jeff and I will be working that out shortly.

      I've also got exhaust issues but I'm going to have the muffler shop fix all that this week.

      One BIG problem is a large oil leak in the worst of all spots - on my oil filter housing. Seems I didn't torque down my oil feed connector tight enough...at least that's where the oil appears to be coming from.

      And I just got the front end back on!!!!

      I'll try and fix it w/o having to pull the front end off again...

      And, I actually did have to hammer away at that pipe just a tad bit on the underside of it so you can't see it at all. Still is a tough fit though.

      Ok,
      So here's the pics:

      Of the front end. I butchered the bumper cover - if you can't tell that's great. But I can. I butchered the opening where there used to be the black plastic supports in the large opening. It needs to be sanded down flat and painted. Oh well!

      So here's where I've still got some issues that I need you turbo experts to help with...Vacuum lines on the WG and on the BOV. I know I asked this already but ppl were talking "upper nipple" and "lower nipple" but I don't know what you guys mean when you say upper or lower...as I can't tell what's the top or the bottom anyway .
      This pic shows my WG and the Vac line I've got attached and which one it's attached to.

      That vac line then goes into the area where the fpr is...I just added a Y connector and that's where it is hooked up to now. The left part of that Y connector is going to my BOV...

      This is a great picture showing where I hooked up my vac line from the Y connector at the FPR to the BOV. Is this correct? Please help here...plus, for others viewing this thread in the future I'd like them to know what the EFF they are doing too .

      This is just a pic of the engine bay near the back where all the turbo stuff is...please take a good look and let me know if I'm missing something (besides the engine cover ).


      Guys,

      Please help here as I'd like to make sure this is 100% correct. My guess is I've got some vac lines mixed up...please get me straight so I know I'm not effing something up here.

      Thanks guys!!!!

      There are diagrams that came with both the BOV and the Wastegate that show you exactly how to hook them up.

      Hey marty...

      I was looking all around my messy garage today but realized I must have thrown those diagrams away. Man, I got that stuff like 3 weeks or more ago and the garage turned into a WAR ZONE during the turbo install...
      Can't find them. But I know, I wouldn't have bothered you guys if I had them...

      Sorry...need help though...
