Thanks there matt. no phone call needed... yet at least. i know how you did it now, but is it sturdy enough? don't you think it will rattle since its not mounted on a flat place? i was comparing the v2 vs the v3 intercooler, although the v3 is slightly shorter and i know it is able to flow more, the v2 seems as though it would cool the charged air much better. i have both intercoolers so i am not sure yet which i want to use. on to the whole exhaust mani, turbo, and downpipe... have you put this in yet? i have discovered 2 of the 3 oxygen sensors will have to be moved. one is shoved up against the front motor mount, and the other is right against were the metal guard that covers up part of the oil pan. let me know if you run into this same problem. i have some pics i just need to learn how to put them up on here

it should be pretty much the same as stock if you're using the same motor mounts. Everyone says the kswap is shakey because of the hasport motor mounts

The turbo is looking nice and came together quick for you. I'm hoping to have everything together by the end of next week and installed by the end of thanksgiving break *crosses fingers*

werd, i still don't know what engine management I want, I need to decide by tuesday but **** I don't know. I'm leaning more toward pcs because of price, but I don't want to have to upgrade to the aem when I get the cams and internals changed (whenever that happens) and the aem has way more options for tuning. decisions decisions. I guess I'll see how your tune goes with the pcs and then decide, what psi are you thinking about runnnig? I want to run 8 or 9 on the stock internals

well chris said he would not do over 8psi on stock motor cuz thats 2 much WHP for the motor. he said on the old kits like v1 and v2 it would but fine but the v3 is so much better and puts down more HP with less boost soo.. and u can tune ur car with PCS XFC if u get cams and internals down the road still also.. talk 2 chris about it he knows everything.. im gunna run the 5psi base tune for like a month, once all goes well ill tune it for 7 or so

I plan on doing stage 2 turbo cam and I want to increase my rev limit into the mid-high 7k range and I will have to mess with idle so I will need the aem for that, but that will be a bit down the road especially since I plan on getting a bike next summer (was supposed to be last summer, but well, **** happens) I guess I'll just go with the pcs anyway, seems like it'll be good enough for now and by the time I get ready to do internals I'll have a much better job bringing in more cash and will just get the ems.

Carefull....I see a missing slave cyl bolt. I did that to cause my line was hitting my turbo, thought it would be ok but my clutch started not grabing because it moved so much.

Matt, If i were you i would clock the center section of the turbo more so its parallel with the ground, i also notice your missing a downpipe bolt, but it looks like it would be difficult to fit one in there. Im suprised this kit doenst come with a flex pipe, hopefully you dont crack a weld somewhere due to the engine torquing alot more now that its boosted.

thx everyone...
@ ex2k3: you can do all of that with the PCS XFC chris said.. it is setup just like a standalone. thats just what i was told and it kicks ***.. and they have great customer service..

@ Sujak: no im usein the 5psi base map that paul has on his web site for now. im gunna do some data logs and send them 2 chris online and he is gunna see how everything looks and tell me what i should do. and yes pcs and go online and see what u are doin while u are tunein.

@ BigE19: no its not.. its Honda Bond, you have 2 buy it cuz we dont have oil pan gaskets, u have 2 used honda bond 2 seal it back up. and chris said 2 put some around the fitting just incase so i did..

@ joshb_: yeah i know my car has had 1 missin since i got it so idk.. i ill get 1 later on if i need 2..

@ Logan3024" the turbo is fine, its sittin how it is made 2 sit. and yeah im missin 1 bolt cuz i could not get it in there cuz i had 2 put the turbo in the car and hold it under the car, while someone put my mani on the block then we bolted the turbo up, then the down pipe. and i dont think ill crack a weld, or i hope not, cuz im not gunna be runin 2 much only what stock can handle untill i get my $ up and get internals.

Sorry dude, Yea the turbo looks fine but what i meant was the oil inlet/outlet should be parallel with the ground.

quick question...shouldn't there be a pipe off the wastegate that merges into the downpipe? I don't know that much about turbos and the such, but I'm pretty sure the wastegate blows hot exhaust out of that port.
