      Long shot here, but are any of you guys still active? I have some questions. I love the build!

      Still here, surprised to see this pop up- I just sold it to one of the other guys. I'll see what I can remember!

      I'm guessing that's your car that Jonathan is stealing parts from then.

      So to break it down, QTD turbo, oil pan (direct fit?), oil filter flange (direct?), the drain and supply oil lines, and exhaust manifold. I have heard that you need to "persuade" the manifold on. What's the deal with the oil pump and pickup swap, is that a big issue? Did you use a Quantum Turbo Diesel exhaust manifold?
      Sorry for all the questions, I'm very interested in turbo-ing my fox

      QTD turbo, pan, filter flange, lines- yes. I'd have to look back through the thread to see which exhaust manifold for sure. I sold the car to Dasbaldguy, not Jonathan, but who knows?

      Thanks for the reply! I'm looking to boost my fox, but it is so difficult to use parts from other cars instead of full custom set ups (not in budget). I love the build, I read it a couple times a week!

      Would this do for the exhaust manifold?

      Just keep in mind that the manifold is set up for an external wastegate. So you'll either need to run one, or fabricate a block off plate and run an internal wastegate.
      *disclaimer* I have not ran the SPA manifold and cannot vouch for its fitment. But I have read on here that it works well.

      QTD turbo (3K or Garrett--both exist,) EM, filter flange, oil pain, oil supply and return lines all fit directly to the 1.8L gas engine. A cut-notch-weld is required for turbo-to-body clearance. You might as well make it a generous one so as to allow sufficient space to install and remove the turbo.

      Is it a must to go to a bigger fuel distributor, like a 5-cyl Audi or a 8 cyl MB?

      Yes, the 5-cylinder one lets it dump more fuel in under boost.

      Jonathan is still around, but is divesting himself of Fox stuff and moving on.

      Yes, I remember him saying that way back when. I'm surprised that he's not done with it by now honestly, 5 years is a long time to drag something like that out.
