To be fair setups will ship in the order of payment.

I finished tacking the NA setup together last night. Tonight I want to get working on the jigs and finish finalizing boxes. Plan is to start shipping setups next week. The first 2 should go out early in the week and I will hopefully get some more out towards the later half of the week.

Once I have all the jigs done I will finish welding the first 2 setups. Then I will probably be building all 7 down pipes at once. Then go from there. I have found I go quicker if I am building all of the same thing at once. So after down pipes will probably be NB mid pipes, then NA mid pipes, then NA axle backs.

Do you ever step back and say "why the hell am I doing this?".

I would. Looks like a lot of work, glad you're the one doing it all

edit: It is a water cooled only turbo right? Ever come up with a fitting/lines solution?

he said oil only, not water cooled
Discount Hydraulic Hose

3/8 ptfe hose for drain
5/8 jic = -10 an drain


1/4 ptfe hose for feed
3/8 jic = -6 an feed
1/4 jic = -4 an

MK Turbo setup is oil only journal bearing. I used - 8AN drain and - 4AN for supply.

Lars, you are doing an oil line kit as well right? Any update on that, or should the beta users go DIY on the oil lines?

Every afternoon when I am spending 2-4 hours after working 8 hours at my normal job I go WTF did I get myself into. Then I remember I fight for the users and keep going.

Turbo is oil cooled only. I will be selling a oil line setup that has all the fittings needed and lines. I can also give you the lengths of the lines if you want to do all that yourself.

I don't have an update on the oil line kit yet. I have not had the time to get up to the hydraulic store to nail down a price of everything I get from there. I am also cross shopping the fittings for the turbo between a few vendors. I will give out part numbers for the people who want to go the DIY route for turbo fittings. I expect the oil line kit to be in the $150-175 range. It is a bit high, but oil lines are one thing I do not cheap out on. The local hydraulic shop only sells aeroquip and out of all the AN fittings I have used over the years they are the best.

This morning I stopped by a local box maker to get a quote on what custom sized boxes will cost from them. I have gotten quotes online for boxes, but because of their size shipping was a big high. Box sizes are approximately 70"x14"x11" for the down pipe box and 45"x25"x11" for the axle back and down pipe box. Boxes online would be about $30 for the 2 custom ones, but about $20 per 2 to ship to me. I think $50 for boxes is a bit high so I am trying to get it cheap to pass the savings on to you gays. The plus side is that because of the redesign UPS shipping costs will be a bit cheaper. The mid pipe box looks to be around $65 to get from the East cost to the West cost. The axle back and down pipe box will be about $65 also from East to West. Closer distances to Charleston will obviously be cheaper. In total I am guessing total shipping costs and boxes to be in the $125-200 range depending on where in the US you are. This is much better then initial $160 to just ship the axle back how it was originally designed.

As for updates of actual building the setups, both the NA and NB redesigns are done. I have the NB setups completely jigged. The NA setups will be getting jigs made this weekend. I started tacking together downpipes last night. I want to get all 8 of those tacked together so I can test fit each setup as I do the rest of the exhausts. Every setup will best tested for fitment on a NA or NB before they get final welding done.

I have one small change that I will be making on the downpipes. I will be going to a 2.5" flex pipe instead of a 3". This is just to make the install of the downpipe in the engine bay easier. This change should not affect build times in any way.

Just got my quote for boxes from the local maker. It will be $40 for the 2 custom boxes. I am going to place my order for 10 of them to start. Cheapest I could find online was $50 shipped for the 2 custom boxes.

Here is some proof that I am actually building setups for you all. Right now I have 3 NB axle backs complete. 1.5 NA axle backs complete, with the other 2 just needing to be welded together. All the jigs are done except for NA mid pipe. Need to get some more metal today to make it.

Excellent work shuiend
My only problem, I have an unmodified 1991 with 1.6L!

I'm curious about your oil line kit for $150-175, are you getting those with stainless braid? Or is Aeroquip always with braid. I don't even know.

You mentioned at the start, that if you absolutely must have a CARB certified system, then we should go with Begi, Jackson Racing, or FFS.
Which of those would be the next-best thing?
