With the silicone sealer you just mean the stuff from Napa or wherever for the upper and lower intake gaskets right?
I use some silicone called Super 7 High Temp & Oil Resistant. Darned if I can remember the brand name though.

It comes in a caulking gun tube, but may be available in smaller quantities.

Any recommendation for a boost gauge for this on3 kit?

If you can afford it buy a good Autometer or other name brand. If not then one of the cheaper gauges should work just fine.

Does it just run off a vacuum to something?

I am looking at the $60 auto meter ultra lite gauge but unsure where it hooks up to the turbo?

Hooks into the intake and reads the boost/vacuum there.

Depends upon which gaskets you are talking about.
Google search installation of whatever you are working on and look for a magazine article pertaining to that part. They will usually tell you what you need to know.

Center Force Dual Friction.
Up to 90% increase in holding power and reduced pedal effort.

I think you will like it. I've had mine for over 10 years now and it's still working just fine.

Did you wrap your downpipe, crossover pipe and spark plug wires?

Anyone have an estimate of how long installation might take for the ON3 turbo kit? Mine is on its way and I will probably get it Tuesday or Wednesday and I took the week off. Just hoping I can get it done.

I'd estimate 2, maybe 3 days if you don't have to do much fabrication.
Then a day or two tuning and working the bugs out.


Do NOT be tempted to romp on it a bit until it has been tuned properly.
Lots of 5.0 pushrod engines have died an early death from just that scenario.

Got it, thanks buddy. I will tune it first. When you say tune you mean timing, fuel pressure etc...

Yes, those and you will need something like the MSD Timing ****** to sense the boost and pull timing out to keep it from detonating as it build boost pressure. Just a little bit of detonation under boost can destroy a piston.


Ensure you have plenty of fuel to it too and go easy on it until you have a safe tune.


Are you going to chip it, have it dyno tuned or are you looking at the AFM PMS?

I have a chip coming with the kit. Since my car is stock with the exception of the turbo the guys at ON3 said that my car should be pretty good with the tune they are sending. They also said better safe than sorry and that a dyno tune should happen in the near future just in case.

---------- Post added at 07:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:44 PM ----------

Do I need the timing ****** with the chip? I was under the impression that I didn't need it?

If you have a chip from On 3 it should have the timing ****** function built in I would hope.

Fuel Line Tools


Use those to disconnect your fuel lines.
You insert the tool to push the locking spring out of the way, then just pull the lines apart.
Do not attempt to force the lines apart or you could damage the spring and coupler.

Note: If they have the metal versions, they are more durable and I think easier to use.

If they are rubber (of some type) coated like the Cometic gaskets, then no you should not have too.
