Default Big rotated turbo kits.... am i crazy as the doc says?

Hey yall so im on yet another build but my first time going rotated. I have looked at and read as well as watched about numerous rotated builds and kits but everything seems to be so different from car to car. im looking to piece this build together to save money since i have time and want to be more hands on this time as thank god the government no longer owns me and i now have whats called free time .

My question is when piecing together a rotated setup are there certain pieces you pretty much have to buy together? it seems like every kit puts the turbo in a different spot, enough to where it seems like you would have trouble when picking a FMIC as well as numerous other parts like the DP may place it over too much to where now your UP wont connect and so on. keep in mind im not talking about anything that would be CUSTOM im asking about main stream, mass produced parts that you would see in the FS forum or even new online . thanks in advance for the help

if you don't have a fmic already, you're in a good position. Talk with your tuner over his opinions on kits out there, then check with the manufacturer on what fmics would fit the best and intakes/filters would fit. This will minimize custom pipework, might minimize cutting up stuff and extra costs.

so your saying base it on FMIC as opposed to which DP, UP? reason i am asking is i realized how much money i could save since i can buy on here and have time to wait piece by piece as i find good deals trying to shy away from a whole kit. just tired of dumping un needed money into these little money pits lol

yeah, base it on the fmic then find a compatible kit.
DP's and uppipes usually go hand in hand in a kit because the degree of rotation and/or mounting style each manufacturer has.

The cheapest way and trouble free way is to stick with a complete kit and their suggested fmic rather than piecing a kit together. Get it complete new or used.

Perrin and TurboXS have ala-carte type kits which let you combine your up and down pipe so they match. The TurboXS one if you want the ewg plumbed back in you have to get it done yourself.

Treadstone also has an ala-carte one too.

You could go with our FMIC and Rotated turbo kit. Perfect fitment, top quality and proven power time and time again. We offer a lifetime warranty on our products aswell.

Not only would the piping be different for each kit because of turbo location but the outlet location on the intercooler changes the piping as well. I could get you a hot parts kit and an intercooler and you could build the intercooler piping if you wanted. that would be a hands on experience for you and less headache than trying to mix and match parts.

Check out the custom rotated kit I used. Much much cheaper than buying from a big name brand and super great quality. On iPad so can't post link but look on my build thread. Should be first page or two. Use any turbo you want.

If you aren't going with a custom kit and an actual big turbo, go with ETS or companies that have products that fit perfectly together.....Just makes it easier for you....

Exactly what I have been planning since day 1. I read his thread a couple years ago before I got my FXT and have been impressed with the results. I will be changing a couple things but overall keeping the same formula.

Good reading.
