      CAN. NOT. WAIT.
      i know.. was there last year.. INCREDIBLE FUN.
      agreed, best show of the year, by FAR.

      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.

      C2
      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...

      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.

      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.

      Ive got old tsw wheels that were put on by the dealer, but no stance. I HATE it. But luckily Ed, formerly of NGP, is helping me out. I lost my court case in Nov about the dents I have. The Coast Guard legal team wont fight anything longer than 24 months and the bastard kept putting off the court date. Ask Fred, they are pretty bad

      If it was anything like the nightscene at the hotels like it was at Waterfest 2 years ago, I am sure that will be a true fact.
