And here are my notes on the installation of the BSH TB Pipe:
I just want to start off and say that the install of the BSH TB pipe wsa really easy and I completed the install without any instructions or guides or anything.
Sadly I can't comment on how much time it took me to complete the install as I stopped several times to do other things and I took lots of pictures during the install. Justin@BSH said that he can complete the install in under an hour and I can believe that once you know what yo uare doing.
Here are my finidings that can make installing your TB pipe much easier:
1)put the car up on ramps
2) remove bellypan
3) remove lower TB pipe coupler
4) remove the noisepipe (see my pictures for the location where I chose to remove it from)**You dont actually have to remove this pipe but it makes the install a LOT easier
5) Prepare your BSH TB Pipe **If you are using a w/m kit decide on where you are going to mount your nozzle. I chose to do the location after the MAP sensor, closest to the engine. First you should screw your nozzle into the supplied L bracket, once you have those piece together then screw that into the TB pipe (use a little bit of loctite) once that is screwed in then screw in the provided fitting. After that install the other w/m blockoff port (use loctite), and if so desired install the noisepipe blockoff
6) Unbolt the lower TB pipe screw using a t25 or t30 (forgot what size it was)
7) This can get tricky as the stock hose clamps have barbs that keep them secured onto the couplers but now you need to remove the upper hose clamp for the TB pipe. Onec you have the hose clamp loosened you can stick a flathead screwdriver inbetween the clamp and the coupler and pry it so the barbs pop out of the coupler.
8) Remove the MAP sensor connector from the MAP sensor in the TB pipe before removing the TB pipe
9) Again this can be a bit tricky but now you need to pry the coupler off of the TB pipe.
10) once you have done this you can twist and contort the TB pipe and remove it by pulling it down.
11) Once you hvae removed the TB pipe compare the two pipes to see how you will ned the couplers lined up for a proper fitment
12) remove the MAP sensor from the stock pipe and install it to the BSH pipe
13) Remember the MAP sensor plug that you removed earlier? I had to free up some extra room as the connector wouldnt quite reach the new MAP sensor location. Trace the connector back to the loom and you will notice a plastic clamp that holds it back, release the cord from this and it will buy you an additional 3-4" of cable.
14) put the bsh tb pipe coupler on the intake manifold and loosely bolt it up
15) loosely place thebsh tb pipe approx where it needs to go, try to wiggle it into the upper tb pipe coupler if you can (just to hold it in place, we will align it properly later)
16) insert the bolt that secures the TB pipe to the motor. As per my picture you will need two 16mm sockets or a 16mm socket and a 16mm wrench to install. **NOTE do not tighten this bolt down till you have BOTH couplers secured
17) install the map sensor connector
18) run your w/m line to your nozzle
19) install the lower BSH tb pipe coupler semi-firmly
20) install the upper bsh tb pipe coupler
21) double check that both couplers are on secure, if you are satisfied then tighten these down now
22) secure the noisepipe back to the TB pipe
23) secure the noisepipe into place
24) recheck all of your couplers and make sure you have the hose claps on evenly, tightenend down, and are secure.
25) tighten down the bolt securing the TB pipe
26) fire up your car and check for leaks in your TB pipe and/or w/m lines
27) do NOT install the bellypan just yet, do some test runs first and makes sure the couplers can withstand boost before installing the bellypan. You dont want to go for a test drive and blow off a coupler only to find yourself 20 miles from home and no way to fix it. Don't worryI have ran without my bellypan for 6 months, no problem.
