Unhappy Any 98RS-T with LudeSPEED kit? Photo requested! TIA

Well, it seems like Tom's turbo kit wasn't meant for the 98RS. The intake pipe is all wrong, plus the fuel regulator and power steering lines are blocking the setup. Basically the pipe isn't for 98 either, since it has only 1 hole (not 2).
So here I am trying to find some pictures of the 98RS-T w/Ludespeed installed. I really need pics on the turbo side, the intake pipe and the passenger side fuel rail.
Just in case someone ask, it's way different than 99-01RS, and the injectors are side-feed (not top feed). That's why they are blocking the intake pipe.
Much appreciated guys.
Btw, I did search but couldn't find LudeSpeed 98RS-T photos.

You might want to make your own....You can buy polished stainless tubing and rubber boots in 45 deg as well as straight to get pretty much what ever shape you need....That is what I did but mine is a 2001RS.... His would have worked on mine I just did not like it resting basically on the engine and with RC440 injectors and the spacers on the fuel rails it really was touching alot of stuff that I was not comfortable with....

Yeah, but the design by Tom was the best still, since it doesn't have much restriction; although for my car, it's a must for modification. You hardly have space after the turbo installed.
That's why I want to see others' 98 engine base and see what kind of options I can have.

I'd be interested to see that. I just got my 98 RS a couple months ago and am ready to start playing. Any info on RS-T kits would be appreciated. The LudeSpeed kit looked pretty good.

I used 3" I believe his is 3" also or 2.5" Just an option to look at and the components are cheap to buy.
I will post a pic of mine later I got creative and came up with my own so I would have the room I needed for other parts In that area.

Update: Tom of Ludespeed said he will try to make custom intake pipe and dual feed fuel adaptar to make them work on the 98.

Mancini: My car is dead at the shop right now, just so you know what you will run into. No spark only crank...very bad sign.

Benson,

I know how you feel. It has been nearly 3 months since I drove my car. My fiance' has a RS and when getting gas, I couldn't remember what side the fuel filler was on. Now that's pathetic. Man I wish I had my car back. Hope you are up and running soon. By the by, I can think of a few worse things that could go wrong. Trust me, I know.

Paul...

Yeah I'm sure they're be plenty of problems...haha give me something to do hopefully! That's awesome that Ludespeed might fix those problems, that would make my life a little easier. I also saw on visnu's website that they're coming out with a turbo kit for the RS.

bensonwrx: did you have to replace your crossmember with this setup?

Thanks!
Brian

Paul,
Everything is installed, but the car just couldn't start...I hope the J&S didn't cook the ECU.

Brian,
No I do not need to replace my crossmember. Usually you do if you are going the Legacy turbo route.

I have one of toms first kit he made for a RS.. oh wait.. he made it for a 98

I have the up-pipe/downpipe IC and charged pipe and intake pipe. they were built for a GT25 turbo. I'll sell you everything for DIRT cheap except for the IC but I can give you the dimensions for it you should be able to get one for a couple hundred bucks.

if you want them PM me. they might work well as a jig if you want to use a different turbo and swap out turbos or use larger pipes.

Brad
