      Are there any issues with clutch, transmission, or drivetrain problems when upgrading to a larger turbo? Should any of these components be replaced before installing your kit?
      Do you ship to APO addresses?

      The stock clutch is going to need upgrading eventually, but the stock 02M 6spd clutches can take a fair bit of abuse. I would suggest getting a fmic in addition to the kit. We sell those, and have pictures on our website too. You'll need fuel injectors and software in addition to the kit.
      we could ship to an APO address, it may be easier to email for details: clay@ctsturbo.com

      Holy crap - are the 6 speeds actually holding GT2871 and larger turbo kits for any appreciable amount of time?

      I noticed that his charge pipe has line for the DV, was that charge pipe supplied with kit or is that his own?
      if it is supplied with the kit, is it possible to get the charge pipe with the DV port deleted?
      Don't some of the turbo's you offer have different size inlet options?
      which do you use for the kits? ie 3071r

      It is included, we could delete if you need it. The turbos have different inlets we supply silicon to suit the larger or smaller housings.

      Ray has had some clutch issues recently, there are others running the basic 50trim kits, but they're not regular vortexers

      I'm doing my 50trim install this week. A question about the 50 trim...
      The threaded inlet of the turbo is on the bottom side when it is set on the top-mount main. So, to 'clock' the turbo, do you take loose the bolts on each side of the center section (not the compressor and exhaust housings) and then rotate that section so the threaded inlet is on top? Is it just that easy?

      You got it tai, check out this youtube video, it's pretty straight forward:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amSFViIAWew
      The bolts holding the CHRA to the housings are 13mm, so have your wrench ready, there are 6 on the turbine housing and 6 on the compressor housing. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Thanks, that's excellent. One more question... the restrictor... how can I be sure I have the correct one for my specific turbo (50 trim)? Can u post a pic?

      If it threads into your turbo, then it's the right one. There are 2 thread pitches, one is metric and it only threads into GT turbos, the other is NPT, and it fits T series.

      I've got the head off, making nice progress in my spare time. Some more 50trim questions:
      What do I do with the factory EGT probe that threads into the turbo?
      What do I do with the factory turbo water lines? Could I cap the feed line and plug the port in the block?

      Here are some updates, hope someone will benefit from the notes I will be putting up.
      So I decided to tap the manifold for the EGT sensor, actually also have an aftermarket EGT gauge so I will tap it in 2 spots.
      50trim has no water lines, so I am looking for a bolt to block off the coolant port in the block. I will then cap off the coolant line that would have supplied the stock turbo with coolant when the after-run pump kicks on. This way I can still circulate coolant through everything else when the pump kicks on, and if I ever go bigger turbo that is water cooled I can just make a line real quick.
      Uni received my ECM on Thursday and I got it back in my hands in southwest lower Michigan on Tuesday.
      Just want to know what others have done to get the line to the bottom port on the wastegate, where did the tap into? On the L shaped charge pipe, there is a small nub sticking out... can I put a vac line on the small nub and run that to my wastegate?

      In the hardware box there should be a banjo bolt/barb that threads into the back of the block and recircs to the passenger side near the coolant bottle.
      The side port on the wastegate is used for MBC, and the top port for the EBC, leave the top port empty if you're using the MBC.

      right, use the side port... but where does the source come from?

      Any boost source like the intake manifold would be good. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      so maybe instead of using the charge pipe nub to go to the n75, delete it and run straight from the charge pipe to the WG?

      You should be able to do that, just make sure it's a nice clean source, not a billion things T'd off of it

    22. 07-16-2009 05:22 PM #222
      Wouldn't the charge pipe be an inacurate source for the WG to measure boost because it's before the throttle body? Your N75 has to read the pressure from the charge pipe then it bleeds off pressure to the WG as it see's fit. If you are using your N75 in your software configuration wouldn't you want that t connect to the middle WG port?
      If you were using just the WG spring to control boost then you would connect it to a port off the intake manifold, correct? Since this is after the throttle body and a source of - & + pressure.
      This is how I've setup non-vw/audi setups in the past...

      If you could do it, I would run it off manifold pressure, but there are a lot of internal wg turbos that take a pressure source off the turbos comp housing. It wouldn't be that hard to run it off the intake manifold for a nice clean source though.
