Default BEGI Kit install

90% Done at this moment, all that is left is Tapping the oil pan, connecting the oil line to the pan, and installing the turbo heat shielding.




I also installed a new CD player too...

Did your setup come with the new M10 studs? Can you post closer photos of the new hardware?

Brain, it's not the size, it's how you use it.

Also, go online and order a radiator tonight, either a 1" CSF or a 37mm Koyo off eBay. Your radiator is on its last legs.

Do you have AC? How did you route the intercooler pipe from the Compressor outlet around the AC lines? That is what is keepign me form boosting right now.

You have to move the lower radiator hose. The a/c does make tapping the oil pan a bit more painful, but it can be done. It also requires that some lines be bent slightly to accommodate the intercooler.

DB- Good job on the install!

Just depower the rack. My '95 came without PS and I think it does just fine, but a lot of people seem to agree that the steering ratio on a depowered rack is much more agreeable.

Pretty sure the PS rack is one less turn lock to lock than the manual. FWIW
