We got 3 guys that are practically mechanics and they want to do it on site! Now its just up to us either towing the car to the C2 booth or see if they would be able to come out for a couple 's and flash me.

      I had you on my old facebook, gonna re-add you on my new one.
      An install AT SoWo?

      This will be my 5th straight year at SoWo... My favorite show of the year. It sucks that you guys wont be staying in Helen because thats the best part: parking your car at the hotel and just walking around all weekend between hotels and chilling with everyone.

      CAN. NOT. WAIT.

      We are excited for you to join the C2Motorsports family, but I feel it is my responsibility to caution you about installing a full turbo kit..........while at a show..........staying at a cabin.........without a garage.......without full access to tools and incidentals.

      Can it be done....probably
      But please think things through as there are aspects of the installation that will require additional tools.

      I.E.
      Welding of the oil pan return line.
      What if an exhaust stud breaks or backs out while removing? How will you fix it? Drill and re tap?
      Soldering of injector harnesses.
      There are a lot of little installation obstacles that when done in a proper setting we take for granted. I am just cautious to encourage this amount of work at a remote location.

      I am not trying to rain on your parade, I am just wanting to challenge you guys to think things through completely before taking on such an install. We want our products, and our customers to have the best experience...and this has the potential to NOT be a positive experience.

      I agree. This sounds like a recipe for disaster. These things descend into hell pretty quickly once they go wrong. Does that little town even have an auto parts store?

      agree. even professional could have major issues with this. may not be the wisest idea for any major install.

      couldnt agree more. like i said, with the PROPER tools, and the bung welded already... um..

      the good thing is that there will be 100s of knowledgeable people on Helen...

      worst case scenario is driving to atlanta to pick up some things.

      you can always text me too...!

      oh, and even if the install were to not happen, we can always meet for no reason... right?

      Yeah I totally understand the caution about the crazyness of which would take place. We are there for a full week and not just 3 days like most. Thinking of ways to "kill time" I guess.

      Not saying it is 100% gonna happen, just a thought goin through some of the guys and myself while we are there.

      Either way, install or not. ITS GONNA BE A FREAKIN BLAST!

      Lookin forward to meeting all you guys and talkin shop

      if you plan on being there for a full 7 days, might as well give it a try... it should be more than enough time to find a solution to any problem you might encounter.

      '08 2.5Turbo Rabbit
      03-02-2012 07:34 PM #40
      Took me alone in my garage 12 hours to install my kit...but it should be noted that I would NEVER try to install something like a turbo in the drive way of some cabin. I have to say if you're gonna do it, bring your entire tool box, and extra heater hoses, extra exhaust manifold studs, extra bolts and nuts in case you can't back one out or one breaks.and I'd suggest you install your oil pan early. Just cap it at the return. And install your injectors and be flashed first. That way you don't have to wait.
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      waste time by going fishing, bird watching and drinking scotch with a cigar...
      .install your turbo before or after SOWO at a shop or at home where its safer to do so.
