Cool no problem thanks! If I have any questions on getting it wired up I'll pm you hahaa

Do you guys think I'd have problems popping intercooler piping if I have to trim a couple pieces? The universal kit I have has pretty big pieces and I'm either going to have to trim some or buy new pieces. The negative to trimming is that I lose the flair end

Just spray some hairspray on the pipe then put the coupler on.

Cut two and weld together so that you have the roll back on each end. If your kit is like mine, you will have extra.

Should I have extra oil to compensate for the turbo/lines? Like an extra 1/2 Qt or something!?

Oh and got the coils today from psyber! Looks great thanks again sir!

I use an extra half for my cooler. Just buy an extra big jug of rotella and use it to top off and such. I used a whole one for the change and then keep a spare around as well.

This. With a good coupler and clamp, it'll be fine.

MX6 took 25psi+ a few times with two connections lacking the bead roll.

Should only really have to ground the one coming off the coils with ring terminals. I left some wires poking out in case you modify to sequential layer or want to run the ground through harness. Sorry it looks like *** lol.


Now you can sell your ignitor to some other person doing cops on an na6

Haha awesome I really appreciate you setting it up the way you did! I'm not worried about the way the harness looks right now. That can all be cleaned up over the winter. I just need it to run and drive right now lol

One other thing.... Do I just leave the OEM coil pack connector loose? There is no need for it anymore right? Maybe I will cut it off and electrical tape the wires into the harness to clean it up

I left mine there with giant heat shrink wrap and tape over it. I thought if there are any wires that lead back to the ecu that I might harvest for reassigbment say...vvt or knock, it's already run in the factory harness. You can also just reassign maf wires.

Ok thanks I'll see if I have some large heat shrink or maybe just electrical tape it for the time being lol.

Not happy with the cluster-f*** of hoses here... The oil drain, 2-piece rad hose, and FM intercooler hose are all crammed together. I think the FM 1 piece rad hose would solve the problem

The fm rad hose is actually pretty useful...even if it's just to remove that mounted coupler
