I have to move my seat forward a notch to have the folded down so i don't drive around with it down if i don't have too. put on my parked i leave the seat down to prevent fading.
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
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.
Did you poison the coffee? Not any more than I usually do.
