There are no clamps in what Keith lists. There is an installation kit for $60, or so I was told:

36-60000 1 Silicone hose Black; BOV silicone hose coupler

36-70000 2 Hose clamp BOV clamp

36-70010 1 Hose clamp For compressor inlet

36-70020 1 Hose clamp For air filter mount pipe

36-70105 2 Hose clamp, Winzer BOV vent clamp

36-70303 1 Hose clamp, T-bolt For compressor outlet

36-70305 2 Hose clamp, T-bolt For IC and throttle body pipes

36-70308 3 Hose clamp, T-bolt For IC and throttle body pipes

The TB junction pipe is the shiny bit of stainless in the pictures. If not using a GM style IAT sensor, a 3/8NPT plug is required.

I agree ^ That's the best thing about this forum, no fear of saying anything. It brings out those in the know to reveal the truth... usually. For the most part this process has produced a lot of informative content here among just a smallish group. Look at all the info that followed your "angry people" comment.

jayc72, the full IC upgrade kit does include the required clamps. If you buy parts separately as you did, we can supply clamps if you want them - Winzer, constant torque or T-bolt.

I don't have a problem with truthful posts, although I see a lot of unsubstantiated rumormonging When I see posts that say "**** Keith, and **** his fanboy", I don't exactly feel like it's a high level of discourse.

Well good news! It all fits together!

I've got a BEGI manifold and Downpipe
CXRacing Chinacooler, about 28 1/2" end to end
FM I/C pipes
Used GT2554R

I had to reclock the turbo, and weld a new wastegate bracket. Made my own mounting brackets for the I/C. Needed to bend some PS hardlines and extend a rubber line. Had to cut about 4 inches off the coldside I/C pipe and 2 inches off the hotside. Nothing too major.

All and all not too bad. Obviously not as easy as buying a kit and installing. Still pretty good considering its a total FrankenTurbo.

If anyone wants more details on what I used let me know.

Hopefully I'll have it running by the weekend.

Jay

More profanity. Check. I usually swear in French, can I use that?

Good stuff, Jay! The old 1.8 BEGi manifolds use the same turbo location that we use now, and we have a spacer that will make an old 1.6 BEGi work with our new stuff. For anyone else considering this, you'll have to ask Corky about the new ones, I know he's moved the turbo on at least some of his manifolds.

We do have wastegate brackets available for reclocked turbos, although they're specific to a particular wastegate can.

Keith you can use profanity in any language you want,so long as you know when to use it.

......btw,were you forced to take french in school back in the day when you lived in Canada?

Not forced, I took French immersion. Almost all of my schooling was in French until grade 6, then it was half and half. Came in really handy when I was living in France, it turns out.

In B.C we had to take 3 years of french in highschool.You had to take it,unless you did not plan to go to college.I think they might have changed it to Cantonese now being the mandatory language in B.C,cause french sure is not.

No French allowed here. Take it back to Quebec frenchy.

I'm happy with my the route I've taken, even though it would have been cheaper to us an ebay piping kit. Although not a lot cheaper and in the end I think I've get a better solution.

Can you link to the exact intercooler you got? When you say 28 1/2" end to end you mean inlet to outlet correct? Thanks.

AU-IC0051 29x9x3, 2.5" Inlet

I used the same type of mount that FM uses. You'd be better off to fine one that is slightly narrower. My car has PS but no A/C, and the I/C is very close to the PS lines that make up the cooler loop.

Take some pics when you get a chance. I'd like to see how the sili pipes look in the bay. I assume you cut the ends that attach to the IC right, not the ends that go to the TB and turbo.

Yup cut the ends that attach to the i/c.

I'll take pictures when it's all together, then you bastards can tell me how crappy my engine bay looks

I want to see this pic!!! I have that piping (which I love) and an intercooler I'm somewhat unhappy with, and a wastegate actuator that doesn't belong in this (or any polite) conversation.

I'll snap some pics tonight before I put my splash pan back on. What are you specifically looking for?

Very glad I saw this thread. I am just about to redo all of my IC stuff and now I'm rethinking my already planned idea. I love those all silicone pipes and the TB pipe.

I never knew FM would piece out parts. I feel.....stupid.

Looking forward to the pictures!
