      <!-----------------------------!>
      Well, the time has come... to start a thread dedicated to the install of the Turbo... from turbo, to standalone, to tuning..

      the work is going to be done with the help of Howard Wolfe (JettaT) and my friend Rob that fabricated the Exhaust at Flipside Customs - http://www.flipsidecustoms.com. Rob will be fabricating a custom short runner intake manifold based off of the stock mk3 vr6 runners, which will be a major part of the fabrication, and hopefully bring the piping to a minimal.

      the Setup:
      3.0 Liter 8.5:1 Schimmel Vr6 - installed by Kelly Campbell (mkIIvr6)
      Garrett Gt35R Turbo
      Tial 38mm Wastegate
      Tial 50mm BOV
      ATP Manifold
      ATP 3" downpipe
      ATP oilpan and oil lines
      Spearco 29x10x3 FMIC
      Walbro 225hp inline fuel pump
      034EFI standalone
      650cc Injectors
      034EFI coils

      custom 3" Exhaust, completed
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2461155
      Clutchnet street fibre clutch - installed
      Autotech 6lb flywheel - installed
      Quaife Differential + bolt kit - installed
      Dieselgeek short shifter - installed

      some of the fun...

      the car its going into...

      anyways, the fun begins tonight. look back soon for photos.
      i hope to have this much like the exhaust write up. just be patient.

      sorry homie, it was a while ago...
      Turbo was bought from this guy ^^ Killa at a very very good price...
      thanks again man, i'm excited to see what it does.

      btw, do i need to plug the holes for the water lines? or can i just leave them open, because i know that it previously had water hooked up?
      i dont want to run water at the moment.

      yes, ball bearing turbos require the water cooling.

      The project has a good start...
      today the front end is being modified to fit the intercooler and piping, and Howard got a jump on installing the manifold, fitting the turbo and running some misc lines for oil.



      Some Misc parts laying around

      Howard at Work..

      I notice a few weeks back, that i have a head leak from the front side of the block (out of the head, not into)... i spoke to a few people about it, and we are going to loosen and tighten all of the head bolts tomorrow... hopefully this will stop the leak, or else i suppose i may be on the phone with Mr. Schimmel for some help.

      Photos of the head leak i have

      The Turbo

      Installing the manifold went very quickly

      Surprisingly, we have tons of room with the turbo... i guess i should have gotten a 40R


      more coming tomorrow on the intercooler!
      I am just really hoping that the head leak doesn't turn into a big issue, i guess we will see... i only have 300 miles on this block, so its definitely not something i did, but i'm just crossing my fingers on this one.

      ARP bolts I guess?

      Anyway, you would be better to change the head gasket now and look if the head isn't warped, then to do all the work later when everything will be bolted on. Especially when boosting.

      Nice setup

      isn't that a brand new 3.0l block, why is the HG already leaking on you? get that fixed before you go any further, this is what erks me about people, your putting thousands of dollars into that car don't skip on this or it will cost you 4x as much down the road.

      i dont know what i said to let you think that i am not taking this seriously, because i am taking this very seriously.

      i spoke to schimmel and a few other friends, and they all said that the arp bolts can stretch or loosen when the get hot after the first few startups. so i am going to re-torque the bolts, see if its good. if we have an issue, i will need to address it with schimmel. he has been very professional and very helpful so far, and i am more than confident that if would take care of me.

      so, dont worry about it, it is being taken care of!

      I wasn't trying to come off like I was yelling at you or anything, it was just an observation. I'm glad you are taking it seriously, most people would just overlook that to get the car together and boost it.

      i understand, i'm happy to have people critiquing this stuff, i want it to work right... All i know, is that any issues i have now... will be 10 fold when i have it boosting like i want it to be...so were going to do what it takes to get it all done the right way.

      well then since your open for advice I recomend gasket matching your ATP exhaust manifold to match the turbine inlet... thats only a T3 sized hole on the ATP

      you mean to just bore out the hole on the ATP manifold to match the gasket for more room?
      thats definitely doable.

      Yea, and gasket match the manifold to the head ports as well. Can't hurt while your doing the porting.

      We haven't gotten to that part just yet, but i will be sure to get some photos of how we do it. - we also discovered that our oil feed line was not long enough to route the way we wanted to... so i have to order a new one of those, and along with that i still need my oil return. So were about a week away from getting the oil hooked up just yet.

      We actually took a break on the car last night, we all have full time jobs, so this is a project we can only do on nights or weekends.... but hopefully i can get you guys some more photos soon...
