To anybody that has gone this route, I had a question about straightening out/re-locating the ABS module. Per the SRT instructions, it says to remove and straighten out the ABS lines to make room for the turbo manifold. I straightened out all of my lines, and got most of them screwed back into the module. With the lines straightened, the module has moved towards the front of the car about 3-4". I can no longer use the OEM bracket that the ABS module was mounted to. So, how do you mount the ABS module to the car? Or do you just let it hang out in there?

Also, I was going to start tapping into the Y-section of the intake manifold, but I cannot find the parts needed to tap into the mani with. It says to tap the following:

- 1/8 NPT hole for supplied MAP Nipple
- 14mm x 1.5 hole for Air Temp. Sensor



I looked through all of the parts I received from Mo, I do not see either of these. Are these parts already on the car, that I am re-locating? Or do I need to pick these up from Lowes? The only supplied nipples/barbs I received from Mo are:

- Turbo Oil Supply Brass T Fitting
- Oil Drain Nipple for Oil Pan
- ? (sorry, I don't have any better pics at the moment



Any help with either of these would be awesome!
The piece to the right of the brass t fitting is a banjo bolt that replaces the 1/8 npt barbed fitting for MAP source, the air temp sensor should be in the box with the ecu. As far as tapping for the gauges, the cig lighter worked for me. If you go straight to the battery it clutters things up and also is not fuse protected. I just installed there stage 3 kit so if you need any help it's still fresh in my head

I should have updated/deleted that post, but I have since figured that part out. Thanks for the input though! +rep

Also, thanks again for the wiring issue. This is what I was initially thinking, and then my friend told me to go the battery route.. I also have some "in-fuse holders" I was going to use for tapping the cig lighter.

Update: I have ordered my SS lines/fittings for the ABS re-location. Should be here early next week.

Plan for today is pick up a new timing belt tensioner and get that squared away. Then finish installing the intercooler piping and get the radiator installed. Depending on how much time I have tonight, finish up the wiring for the gauges.

I have not mounted the exhaust yet. I cannot decide if I want to wrap the downpipe or not. If I do, I will probably go with the DEI Titanium wrap. I was thinking the 2" x 25'. Would that be enough for my 3" DP? Also, would it be safe to cut a small slit in the wrap to fit around my o2 bungs? Or should I go with a separate 1" wrap for that?

Wrap it, the less heat the better. Plus it will keep it quiet. Also, in my experience, the wrap will fray anywhere you cut it. So if you must cut a slit, I'd recommend you follow it up with several coats of the silicone wrap sealant spray.

Sorry, no pics yet. But I did run all around town yesterday, and finally found a shop that had the OEM TB tensioner in stock, so I was able to get that and the timing belt installed last night. I did 2 full rotations on the crank and everything still lines up perfectly! And I finally cut the hole under the driver side headlight to finish my IC piping up to the turbo. Didn't get as far as I wanted, some college buddies came over and we just hung out for a while. I also ordered some DEI Titanium exhaust wrap with the SS zipties. So I will get the DP and the exhaust installed when that arrives.

The repair manual says to torque the crank pulley bolt to 243 ft/lbs. What did you guys use to hold the pulley while cranking? I have an auto (for now), so I can't use the "put it in gear" trick. When using a chain wrench, I read that you can use your old TB to protect the crank pulley, has anybody done this?

Thanks! It was a little overwhelming at first, when all my friends who said they would help at any time all flaked out on me 4-5 times each. Knowing that I would be doing the whole build on my own. It was/is definitely a lot of work, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Thanks Jeremy!

Excuse the multiple posts, but I am in the middle of uploading to photobucket, and I wanted to try and keep the posts separated.

This weekend, I got a little more work done.

DP all wrapped up:







And here is how I tightened down my SS locking ties:



But, the locking ties do not actually get that "tight." So, I went to Autozone and picked up a pair of SS clamps, and put those on.



I had to shorten up my wrap a little bit, as it has to be installed to my mid-pipe with an exhaust clamp. I also installed my b1s1/b2s1 o2 sensors, as well as my wideband before installing the DP on the car:







DP on the car:





I also updated my "fog mod" with an "add-a-circuit" instead of the wire wrapped around the prong..
