I have. 5 times and counting now. It's a non-issue.

What DOES suck is installing a new transmission with a QMax already present.

That's good to hear, thank you! Did you have trouble realigning the input shaft? I just did this two weeks ago since my rear main was leaking. Your buddy Copper just pushed the front of the motor back towards the firewall, went like butter.

Mostly i had problems threading the needle because it's easiest for the trans to get where it needs to go clocked at about a 20 degree angle to spline it. I typically spline at that angle, then rotate straight as it slips over. Can't really do that with the Qmax there.

What ended up working was jacking the front of the motor sky high with a jack/2x4 (it will tilt a LOT without the Qmax hitting the firewall) and then it only took another 30 minutes of The Cursing Olympics to work out.

Obviously jacking the front of the motor up makes things easier in general, but i typically don't need to do that, and i've done a few trans/clutch jobs in my time.

Copper = Cooper = Justin? He's my dude!

Sounds like I just had some luck with the re installation then. Yeah hes a good dude. I helped him get the rest of his rear suspension off, I love me some rust. His car is back on the road now.

Is there a dedicated turbo feed port? Can't find anything about this in the description :(

Excuse me for asking noob questions but what would be the best place to get the feed from? Seems to me like it could come from any place except for the return side of the pump. One way I found in a video is using the blocking plate on the front like this picture.

The reroute comes with two threaded holes in the thermostat neck block off plate. 1/8npt and 1.6 fan switch threads. Either could be used for a -AN adapter.

Thanks but if I decide to remove the ugly water neck, none of those will be there, right? :(

Drill, tap, add fitting. I figure by the point someone puts this plate in it is well into DIY territory and they should be able to figure it out. It is difficult to guess at all the possible combinations of fittings and accommodate them on a small plate.
