On3 Turbo

I will be ordering an On3 turbo as of Monday the 23rd! I talked to Adam at On3 (great guy) and he said we should be good to go! I'm planning on recording all the progress and process here with pictures and videos!

I followed it, problem was the person tuning and installing. Ill be doing all work and cutting no corners. I'm away fitment will be so so and fabrication may be required but I'm ready for that. Give an 18 year old something to do!

Get the kit man. Dont listen to people on here that dont have experience with the kit. My cousin has a 07 fully built with the on3 76mm no problems.

Can I expect big things from the kit with the 67mm? Bug difference in power on 9 lbs?

Yes 67mm is a good size turbo. Exp for 9lbs. Wont have to worry about turbo lag as much. If they offer the ball bearing option for the 67 get it

I'm gonna let you know right now, the fitment on this kit makes it ridiculously difficult to install.

Anything specific I should know when installing? What stuff I should be aware of before going in?

That's about it, I would highly recommend letting a professional do the install. The whole installation process is gonna be a nightmare because of the fitment. But it'll be a nice kit once complete.

Even if I'm following instructions, have some mechanical knowledge, a mechanic for an uncle that has build his own drag car (8 second monte carlo) and have the time to do it? I just don't have an extra $1, 500-$2, 000 (what i was quoted) to have someone else do it right now. (Gotta love being 18 still)

Oh believe I understand (I'm 20). But it doesn't really come with instructions. It's more of a generic guide. Unless your uncle is an expert turbo installer I would highly recommend a professional.

+1 superchargers are easy to install. Turbos are a lot more tricky.

Haha I'm 21 and wish I could do a turbo build on my fox but my 306 is good for now haha

I'm in the Army everybody in my unit around 18 to 24 has camaros, 350z's and other expensive cars, gotta love the pay and benefits lol, and Yea I learned the hard way to have a professional install it. UNLESS your uncle really does know what he's doing. You don't wanna end up like me. It'll be 3 times as expensive to redo everything.

But was the problem that you went into boost before a tune? Could it not be installed by us and then transfered to the tuner and then be safe? What is the process for installing it if you don't mind me asking? Is it doing pipes by headers, y pipe to axleback, mount turbi and intercooler, run intercooler to turbo piping, exhaust piping to turbo, turbo to intake, oil to turbo, turbo to drain oil and then filter relocation and reservoir relocations? Is thos correct?

Yes that is correct, but my problem was the installer went into AND the oil lines were ran wrong so the car had no oil pressure AND he went into boost.

The shop I took it to had a whole list of things that were wrong though, too many to name. But that was the main problem.
