Default Shanghai Build

My Shanghai kit w/2554 has finally arrived from Begi although a few parts are on backorder.

Does the "TBD" cast into compressor housing stand for manufacturer "to be determined?"


Good work drilling the oil pan. Should be an easy upgradeable install.

buy a big bottle of good thread sealant, use it on everything that sees a fluid. Doing it once > doing it several times.

Thanks for pointing that out tyson. I left the a/c bracket in the car this summer. The oil return is low enough I can put the bracket back in.

Yes it was drilled with the pan still on.

Its TBO that's the manufacture of the turbo.

Wrap the heater line to protect it from heat.

Make sure ur wg flapper is opening all the way. Otherwise begi needs to send you a spacer.

And put the bracket back on or get a smaller bolt for that ac bracket hole thingy.


Edit:
Now you need to get some WI.

Here are some pics from friday. One fitting was cracked so I bought a stainless oil feed line to use the extra fittings.

Yeah, I reused the stock manifold gasket and there is nothing on the turbo, dp or cat. I will shorten those water lines and add the check valve on the fmu tomorrow. Hopefully Begi sends my stuff soon so I can drive it.
