Default Ludespeed Turbo Install Directions..

First off...I did a search and got no hits.

Now, does anyone know of any web sights that detail the install process so I can see how much work it is before I order?


Thanks, Tats.

Well I have done three LudeSpeed Turbo Installs so far and as long as you have every part you need, then things will run very smoothly. One thing I will highly recommend of engine management. Personally I have installed the Link Plus in every car I have installed the Ludespeed kit on. This makes getting the car up and running a million times faster.

I would allow two full days to install everything, this will allow, runs to the store for tools or whatever and fixing all those tiny little details you want just right.

As for the directions, the first time I went through them, they were pretty clear and informative. As for a link, www.ludespeed.com. E-mail for the directions if you are really interested.

give me about 30 seconds, and I'll post the PDF I have so you can check it out. Mind you, the version I have is prolly a little different than the kit you'll get, but the gist of it is the same.

[EDIT] Server problems, so it'll take a bit longer. Nick (8Complex) might still have them online.

My site went down, so I don't have them online any more. Will search the home machine when I get back there to see if it's archived on one of my drives.

Hey Jewbaru,
That file isn't there anymore. I was hoping to get a copy of the install instructions. Do you think you could update the link?
Thanks,
Jared.

I think the instructions posted for download on my site for the kits we sell and those for ludespeed will differ in a few places.

Their oil pan is different, their turbo is only oil cooled and ours is oil and water cooled, they use a garrett with external wastegate and we use IHI RHB52, VF22, VF30 as the options with internal wastegates, and they use a catch can and we use a vacuum chamber where the PCV valve was.

LudeSpeed kits were actually never non-water cooled turbos.

I'll see if i can dig up the PDF at home and get it posted up somewhere (install instructions).

I thought the T3/T4 has the ability to be watercooled. Has all the fittings and stuff for it doesn't it?

Any turbo can be water cooled if it has the water cooled center section.

Or have water injection sprayed directly onto the turbo itself.
