Are you running power steering? Curious to know how your Jmf O2 housing fits. Had to send mine back as it was touching the p/s pump.
Do you have any pictures of it on the car, I tried searching a bunch and no one really has any good pictures of the dump tubes installed with bolt on style turbos?When I ran my dsm82 set up the dump tube was a bit of a PITA. It would only fit at one specific angle, same wastegate but on the old fp30 housing, so not exactly the same but similar, I think what I did was attach the Vband clamp to the wastegate first, and work it around in there until it matted up flush with the turbine housing, then clamp it on at the turbine housing, in your case the o2 housing
Joe is running his wastegate off the manifold, with no power steering, relocated alternator and a forward facing oil filter housing. Nate is off the O2 but also has no power steering, relocated alternator and a forward facing oil filter housing. Nate also has a small radiator with a single fan. Nate's setup shown below. I may be able to squeeze it if I remove my driver's side fan, but that kind of defeats the purpose of the shroud. I'm going to play it some more but I need my drain line on before I get too crazy.I don’t, I’ll try searching, it has to fit some kinda way, Joe bucci, aka “Joe wrenches” and Nate Chrisman aka Performance Partout are both running this bolt on zero, and I’m sure they have a dump tube fitted some kinda way
I agree worst case I may have to modify the dump tube, and yea it's all supposed to be bolt on .This whole thing is funny tho because it’s meant to work , it’s supposed to be a bolt on setup, FP doesn’t mention any special requirements on their website. Maybe worst case you’ll need a different dump tube? I hope you figure it out
The issue I'm having is the brackets won't angle outwards as they are hitting the headlight buckets part of the frame. I really don't want to notch the frame there as my chassis is rust free. I'll probably notch the brackets or weld on some new mounts.Shouldn't make any difference. That's how mine are welded too.
Update, talked to ETS again today and they agreed the brackets are in the wrong location. They are going to take it back and fix the brackets.Ya ETS responded with just bend the brackets outwards.... Now I'm wishing I just bought a used one instead of going new and I could I have used the money elsewhere.
