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
Thanks for all the good info on these nipple plugs.
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.
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)?

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.
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?
Quote, originally posted by Ohio Brian » 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.
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?????
