I have about %90 of my PTI kit in hand, so I decided to start the install, since the rest is on the way. Its been a bit easier than I thought so far, but I have a couple questions. I have already emailed Jamie about it, I know hes busy as hell and I figured it'd be good to have things like this up anyways so here goes!



Which port is IN and which is OUT? I know the one on the bottom is for the vac......
This may sound completely retarded, where in relation to the pump does the FPR go? I've seen diagrams with an FPR after the injectors on the return line, and before the injectors on the send line. Also, does it matter which side of the fuel rail sends/receives? Ive studied pictures of PTI kits and people seem to have done both. I also have a fuel gauge for adjusting the pressure, and I am wondering where is the bets place to put that (in relation to the FPR and pump as well)
Thats it for the fuel system.....

Now, for the IC/piping.....Does this look right?
These pipes seem to hang a bit low. The only pix I could find with the bumper off are of Davids SE, which is completely different, plus he doesent have a kit.
I am pretty sure this is right, and the ramps are making it look off cause the nose is up in the air. Look close to see the pipes (black) flexing below the bumper......



Now, for the intake manifold. Question one. Why am I tapping it for a vacuum if there are already existing vac lines I could T off of? I noticed the FIR kit directions instruct to do the same.....
Where is a suitable place to tap on the manifold? I dont see why it'd matter much as long as it did not interfere with anything else mechanically.


Last question. What in the hell is the trick to getting the upper oil pan off? This thing is a major PITA. Ive checked 3-4 times and all of the bolts are off....

Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance to all the boost heads.......

I honestly only know the answer to one of the questions you asked.. The IC pipes look right.. The reason they hang down low like that, I think, is to accomodate the stock foglights for those who have the stock bumper. I have a slightly different FPR, so I am not quite sure about the setup, and as for the install I didn't do any of it myself - so I couldn't honestly answer with any certainty your other questions..Let me know if I can help in any other way..

Looks like you are making good progress though.. Congradulations, you will not be disappointed.

Well money really wasnt the issue with the install, I wanted to do it myself for the experience and so I could better understand how everything works together. I figured I'd take my time and work on it 3-4 hours per day and do it right.

On topic: Any help with any of the above questions? Cmon somone's gotta know....

*Other than what you have posted?

Hey there...

The side port comes from the fuel rail, and the bottom port goes back to the tank. Yea, the piping looks right. Hope this helps. Later

Yeah, you do need to find that out for sure.
I'm suprised more boost heads haven't come on here and helped square you away.

Good luck, Shane
