Arrow More turbo kit questions: Still trying to finalize it (IE help...)

Ok, I have a few more things I still need after going around in circles with what im going to do with my car. Im actually getting a 2nd car so I can deal with this car being down for a little while, and I still have all the same stuff I had in my previous post ( http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=511292 )

Exept that now Im going with a WRX intercooler instead of the legacy air-water system, and have an RS hood. I might be getting a WRX intercooler without a BOV, so my first question is...
Who sells an adapter flange plate like turbo-xs makes that has a 1" tube/flange so i can connect it to the Bosche BOV that I got from Subachad, or is that just a bad idea? (Pic of what i mean here: http://home.att.net/~boxer4racing/Tu...bovadapter.jpg )

2ndly, I still dont have any oil feed lines... Someone for the love of god find something I can use!!! (Its just a td04 getting the oil from the oil galley plug with the same sized thread hole as the td04 oil supply thread) I emailed ISR like months ago, never got anything back about their kit

3rdly, does anyone know what I can do with 2 studs I had to cut on the JDM catless uppipe I have? I think im just going to use that for the td04, but like i said 2 studs had to be cut in order to disconnect it from the td05... The whole double nut thing wont work either, cause there isnt much of any thread left on any side.

4th, do I need to use any sort of special intercooler tubing with the WRX intercooler to the td04 because of where the throttle body is located, or is that not an issue? What else do I need to do with the WRX intercooler "triming" to fit it into a GC(GM) body?

5th, any tips for intakes, and if possible a way to use the stock airbox with the td04's inlet?

Im pretty darn close with getting this actually installed...

ok, i'll see what i can answer.

1) i have no idea, sorry, i have a kit made for a wrx on my WRX intercooler.

2) this one is easy - if you have the subaru oil galley tap it has a 1/8 NPT thread on it, an adapter can be bought that should be 1.8 NPT > 4AN - steel lines with AN ends on them are easy to come by. the oil feed on your turbo likely takes a banjo fitting - also not too dificult to come by. I go to my local parker store for all such fittings - they specialize in hydraulic fittings for machinery, but also carry fittings and lines for performance cars and lowrider hydraulic systems. another source would be pegasus racing or essex auto parts, both carry the full line of earls hoses and fittings and should have everything you need. I will see if i can find pictures of mine tonight.

3) how much of the stud do you have still left on the uppipe? there are various types of stud extractors you can use to remove them. there are ones like this, that i have never tried, but look like they would be effective for very short studs:

and ones like this, which i have used quite sucessfully when i screw up the threads on an uppipe or exhaust manifold stud:

you should be able to find both sides at local auto parts or hardware stores.

4) my intercooler was trimmed when i got it and went right on, sorry i cant help you more there...

5) let me know when you figure something out... I have yet to build an intake that isnt interfered by the power steering lines on my car.

Good luck - even a few lbs of boost makes a world of difference in these cars

2) The threaded hole in the oil galley is actually metric thread. British pipe thread it's called- the equivalant to 1/8th inch NPT but the thread pitch is slightly different. 1/8 NPT will work but it screws up the threads.

If you wanna avoid screwing up the threads, order a metric adapter made by Autometer. Summit Racing sells them.

1. I know that Turbo Smart also makes an adapter flange for the WRX intercooler.

2. Ditto to Safir.

3. Ditto also.

4. You need to trim the throttle body part down. Also, your y-pipe will have to be extended. It's much easier to do this with a Samco or other aftermarket hose. You cut the hose after the 90 degree turn out of the turbo. I added metal pipe in there and then used hose clamps.

5. All of my intake is built. Where is your turbo going to be sitting? I used a Samco 90 degree hose right out of the turbo.

PS- I have a trimmed WRX intercooler for sale.

Im done asking people if they have them, what I want is either a link to the actual part or the exact part numbers for a specific store so I can walk in and get what I need. Ive already asked too many places, and nobody around here has any of the right fittings.

Ya, I was thinking a 90 degree silicone thing would work... What diameter is it?

I went with a 2.25".

As for the recirculating of the BOV, just make a plug in your intake near the turbo and run a hose from the BOV.

Ok, sounds good.

BTW, for the intercooler trimming, has anyone documented it yet via pics?

I'll get pics of you want me to. You just trim enough off that you can still tighten a hose clamp on it.

I think the stock BOV hits the throttle cable, so I would go with that.
