      We make everything we possibly can in house. Foundry work, is one of the only tasks handled off site for obvious reasons. But most of it is Canadian made, right in our building.

      The Water pump is a Meizere, very high flow pump. The water/Air intercooler is located in the intake manifold, and is custom made for the application.

      Yes there are a LOT of parts to going FI properly. This should show people the difference between our kit, and a lot of others out there that provide the 'basics'

      We give you everything down to the zip ties.

      Marcel, we need some help with a redesign of the accessory belt tensioner. Does the kit come with a new one? Do you recommend replacing it when the FI kit is installed? I bet you would have a huge market if you could figure out a redesigned/upgraded tensioner.

      Beautiful parts and design, by the way!
      The engineering and thinking are impressive.

      Having seen the exhaust manifolds sliced up, I can say that they are some very nice castings. A lot of thought went into flow and OEM like integration with the rest of the system.

      Keir,

      There are some parts that look like they could use some power coating. The heat-sheild looking thing appears to be one of them. Is this ok to do? Or maybe you can give some suggestions based on some previous projects.

      Good question man, i was thinking the same thing........

      Im sure u can have these type of parts coated with ceramic powder coated for extra heat protection and im sure it will cost the buyer more money too.

      BUT i would be doing the same thing to keep the heat down low as possible with a turbo upgrade, so damn near everything would be coated under my hood......LOL

      BTW...... I love all the Pix, looks like one of my DIY threads, very pic heavy

      Mike,

      Thanks SO much for the thread. My installer is using some of this information to help prepare for my build.

      I'd love for you to comment on the misc. items you might be doing along with the build. Such as, what types of items you might be replacing that are not part of the kit. Also, how many miles on on this car (what year too)?

      Then any advice or tips would be super awesome.

      There are two kombi valves on a r32. With this kit you are only using one and blocking off the other one. Notice the small block off plate. That is why the pipe was cut and a cap welded in.

      The kit pretty much comes with everything needed to do the install the only things i had to get was some o'rings for the coolant pipe and the gaskets for the coolant flange the kit came with everything else i needed. the only advice i have is if your going to be installing this kit is to take your time don't rush throw it there is alot of small details that are very important. if u have any qusetions at all let me know i will be happy to anwser them

      NJ Vr is right you have to remove one of the komb valves. and block off the pipe with the suppied block off plug

      HPA why block of the SAI? The new inspection machines in the US know when things are writen out in the software and readiness is forced. Blocked off SAI will not pass inspection here.

      Other than that kit looks nice, I love the A2W setup.

      Hey all, Mike (the tech, we are 2 ppl.. ) has made a lot of progress and we were just waiting on the ECU from HPA and at the last minute I decided to powdercoat the valve/cam cover gunmetal. Just came back.

      Car is getting totally put back together tomorrow, hopefully up and running by end of day or Friday if the ECU is here.

      U guys are doing a awesome job!!!

      Here are a few question I have to ask.....

      How many hrs has this install taken???

      Also how much does it cost to powder coat the valve over???

      What parts where used from the old CVP L2???

      I would love to see some pix of the lower aluminum water heat exchanger and the water pump and that black extra container that comes with the kit, is tha black container for adding water to the air to water Intercooler???

      I wonder why the exhaust manifold is devided and the custom turbine cast is not a twin scoll housing???

      Is the lower water Intercooler made by HPA or Garrett or aftermarket????

      Sorry or all the question.......

      I will post lots of pics of the air to water system and all its parts very soon i am installing the system today

      would have to ask HPA about the manafold
