Good to hear someone has consistency with E85. I hope it's good around the twin cities...anyone have experience with this area?

Also, in addition to my last post about vacuum lines, what about the brake booster? That's just a vacuum line right? Can I tee off of that to get a boost reading somewhere like the BCS? -Thanks

Put NO I repeat NO tees in the manifold reference line going to the fpr. Don't do it. It is a bad idea all the way around, If something happens, somehow, your fpr wont see your boost, you will run so lean your motor will go boom really quickly...

I have experience in the twin cities area and our E85 is perfect, I never have had one problem....

You don't have a tap for a bcs line on the perrin kit somewhere( like on the turbo)? interesting...You are going to have to tap something but I wouldn't ever do it off of the reference line that lines purpose is too important...

Good deal on the E85.

-Thanks for the feedback on the fpr vacuum line. My rex when I bought it had the boost gauge T'd into the fpr vacuum line, but i guess that's not really prone to going wrong. I did have an experience where the purge solenoid popped off the manifold though, had that been T'd into the fpr vacuum line that could have been bad news. I'll take the T out of the fpr vacuum line.

Any thoughts on the brake booster? What else can I use in there to get a boost/vacuum input?

Nothing on the turbo either, the GT30R doesn't have that port that the VF series turbos do.

That little circle gets drilled through on the turbo... the circle to the right of garrett... I have seen this on P&L's kit I think...

I was afraid that would be the answer once I looked at the picture...I wonder if I can pull that off with the turbo bolted on.

What about tapping into the intercooler piping right after the turbo? I don't think I'll be able to reach in there with a drill and I seriously don't feel like pulling the turbo off again

I am wondering does the 07+ delete the purge solenoid or what?? what do they run the PS out of?? BTW my Rex had the same tee for a boost gauge and back when I had Jorge tune my car we had a long talk about that reference line lol, a serious talk if anyone knows jorge they know what I am saying.. long story short we ripped that T off before doing anything...

Yes the pipe after the turbo is perfect... I think I might tap the pipe after my turbo I fabbed for my TMIC for my bcs too, I don't wanna drill into my Garrett 3076, It sitting right on my table, so I could but, I just plain don't wanna drill through this sick turbo

So here's an idea, maybe someone can tell me if it's good or bad: Drill into the intercooler piping with a hole(s) big enough to JB weld a nut(s) upside down that has the threads for a vacuum port. The nut acts as a "bung", and I can put one or two of them in there for whatever I need. Thoughts?

Interesting, I don't know if it will hold or not... I am welding mine. Does anyone know the true limits of JB weld, stuff is amazing...I think it would have to be able to take the heat because people use them in their tgv delete procces that is in the same air path... would it hold I don't know/have enough experience with JB...

I think it will be good, I fixed my purge solenoid with it on the rex and it held...I broke off one of the little plastic nipples. Same pressures I think. I used it this time to attach a 1" stainless nipple to the aluminum intake pipe for the bpv return routing. We'll know for sure it's good if it holds that! Back to home depot!

I think it will work... Im sure your bpv nipple will be solid for sure , but I think the nuts and the nipple Idea should work out fine for you too...

Looks like a nice build. I'm guessing 400ish whp, DB's dyno reads pretty low. E85 is awesome though, I saw a 10% gain in hp and a 15% gain in tq on my tdo4 running E85 on
DB's dyno. I'd guess yours will be much higher than that, Shane just couldn't do anything more with that turbo.

I bet me and Juks surprise everyone on DB's dyno, we are both running 30r's with E85...Depending on what the boost gets dialed in at im betting over 440 is possible with E85... I have 9.5:1 compression also...

I gave up on the nuts/JB weld idea...turns out the aluminum is soft enough that the brass vacuum fittings threaded it w/out a tap set. Almost done, just waiting on some silicone hose to come in so I can get the turbo to connect to the intercooler piping...you'd think the perrin rotated kit would be a direct bolt on to their own intercooler...

I'll post pics of where I'm at before I rack out tonight

Nice work I was thinking they might thread in too but I was unsure, your def. making some progress. That is unreal that the kit doesn't bolt right in... Thats why you get a kit you know...

Good thing you did not do that. I have done that before and it just didnt hold more then a few weeks.

Haha, good thing huh? I hope my bpv connection at the intake holds up. Anyways, damn camera died last thing tonight so no pic, but it's just about done. I finally got it off of the jack stands. Now I just have to finish bolting up the rear swaybar, figure out a way to force the perrin downpipe to attach to an APS exhaust, and get the compressor to hook up to the intercooler piping.

Nice looking good! You are close. Does the kit not have anything with it to hook up your FMIC to the compressor? Down pipe doesn't want to hit the exhaust either?... I remember the first time I threw my injen downpipe on for my stage 2 setup back in the day I was pressing so hard against the flange on the end of the down pipe to get it to hook up to my exhaust I cut my palm on the flange careful lol.... I am ****** dying to see your numbers tomorrow... That car is going to scream in less than 24 hours bet you are excited...

It did come with a silicone couple to connect the turbo to the last piece of piping, but it was for the stock location turbo. No matter which way I turned it, the angle just wasn't right and length wasn't right either. I did manage to get the exhaust to bolt on just fine, an extra gasket and a little bit of elbow grease (dremel, hammer...). I have to cut out of work early again today to get it to the shop...hopefully this is the last time I need to take time off for my car. Next post should be a dyno graph!
