Today I just bought a PTE 5031e turbo off another member on this board and I had several questions before I receive it and get in way over my head. I'll give you some background first.
I bought a 1993 Eagle Talon from a guy in PA that had a blown Vtrim Bullseye turbo. Anyway, the transaction turned out to be a complete lemon and I got the car shipped here (VA) hoping I could get it running soon. Now I'm in desperate need of an extra vehicle (especially for the winter season) so I bought this turbo hoping it won't be too much of a hassle with it working with my setup.
Here is my setup so far:
Evo 3 Exhaust Manifold
Evo 3 O2 housing w/dump tube
3" Apexi DP w/3" Megan Racing Exhaust
Dejon Tool Intake
ACT2600 w/ Fidanza Flywheel
Now these are all of the mods if I can remember correctly that came with the car. I left some of the less important ones out. I was told that to be safe I should get a FPR as soon as possible to prevent any damage and that I should look to replace the 550's as well. From reading some other threads on here I shouldn't boost more than 15lbs before I get more supporting mods.
My question is:
1. How hard is it really to install this turbo?? From what I understand there is some denting of the water pipe involved?
2. Besides the larger injectors and the FPR, which has been ordered by the way, is there anything else I'm missing??
I've been on this board for a little while but still consider myself very new so please pardon me.
Also I'm learning very quickly that you have to pay to play in this game.
