Dave,

Where are you located? I noticed the brake parts were on the wrong side of the car.

Please tell us what you have done.

Please tell me that you have a one-way check valve between the intake manifold and the brake booster cylinder - from the photo it looks like a simple hose connects the two.

Good catch! I am just starting to do a turbo build; have one in the PVC line, but did not think about the brake booster. Many thanks!

There is one from the factory in the stock line. Don't worry about it unless you've replaced the lines.

Are you on the 3 or 2.5 inch downpipe?
I'm making a part list for my turbo build and Kraken is on it. My only problem is with the downpipe diameter.
Forum wisdom tells me to go 3, but Kraken only offers 2.5?

Would this be a limiting factor on the 1.6? I don't plan to build the motor.

Kraken offers a 3" for the T25 turbos. Message him and ask him. My 1.8 T25 manifold, 3" downpipe and 3" downpipe back exhaust just came last Thursday and looks very very good, especially for the money!
