I figured I’d finally start a thread.
Coming from a stock truck with PPEI tuning from 2015.
I ordered some parts at the end of Nov, but it took a while.
I had to order the kit from WCfab and then purchase the turbo (from Himni racing) to be sent to them to confirm fitment.
I have some of the parts in but not all.
I’m not 100% sure how the water cooling lines for the turbo will go.
I believe the stock water lines go from the pipe that gets removed with the 2nd gen kit.
I did buy a fleece coolant bypass kit and some Mishimoto radiator hoses to swap out since the coolant will be drained.
Does anyone here ever does a 2nd gen swap and use a water-cooled turbo? Any idea what’s the best option for feed/drain?
Here are some pics just test fitting the S400 connections. They seem to mate up nicely.
There’s also a speed sensor port I’ll have to plug, but I haven’t sourced the plug yet.
I called a turbo shop, and the guy said he thought it was a 1/8npt, but further investigation shows otherwise. I called atp turbo and it turns out it’s 3/8npt. I must have heard them wrong. But I should be able to plug that hole no problem.
I'm still waiting on a steed speed manifold, shipped on Dec 5th, and still in route, LOL.
30 days later, but at least it’s in Charlotte now.
It shouldn’t be too much longer to arrive.
I've also already purchased an MM3 and tunes.
I can’t install it yet as they’re set up for the 2nd gen swap.
