Thumbs up What do I need to make this kit complete?


I've already got the EMU. This is the list of stuff I think I need:

Boomslang harness
oil/coolant lines
Intercooler + piping + clamps

Anything else?

There's a shitload of smaller things you need. Read the Begi or FM install manual and you'll get a better idea. Don't forget a 323 turbo pcv valve. This usually isn't mentioned.

Your list looks pretty close to me.

Not sure if FM requires gaskets - BEGI does not use them between the turbo/manifold/downpipe.

Thats a pretty big turbo man. Unless your running a stroker your gonna have lag trying to get that monster to spool. just my 2 cents.

Other than that it sounds like your pretty much set. You just have to look into the little things. They always come back and get you.
