I said it takes us an hour and a half two hours. For the average person 3-4 hours

It takes the average person (singular) 3-4 hours, but takes 2 people with a shop and its resources at their disposal, who are at the very least moderately mechanically inclined 9 hours of work?

For something like this, I wouldn't want to rush it. Take your time, do it right. Plus there's always those derp moments where things don't go how you planned for one reason or another.

If an aftermarket setup installs easily with no issues whatsoever, I would be hesitant and think I did something wrong

Im sure if they attempt it again they would go much faster. Just like anything it takes a bit to get it right. Once youve done it once it should be cake the next time around.

Maybe because your indoors and the concave of the room is amplifying the sound and changing the acoustics? Not sure but it sounds mean, happy for ya that you got it in!

On a side note:45 minute-1 hour install that was originally told to us, my ***
3 hour install? my ***
This took almost a full 24 hours with two people working on it and struggling to figure things out and make them fit. And that's no knocks against you Alre, or WL, I would be in the same boat as you. And probably be driven crazy trying to squish that thing in

Believe me he will do suspension. He is the one who turned me onto that road for my car. I just did suspension first before power, he is doing it the other way around.

I'm in the same boat. I'm finishing up bolt-ons and exhaust this month, lowering springs, adj. panhard bar, camber bolts, and I put a STB on.
I really just can't plant the tires on a full throttle launch. I go sideways even with advancetrac on. I guess lower control arms will be the solution to that? At least, I'm hoping. Alrefire had told me that's all he has now is LCA's.

Lower and upper control arms then upgraded rear shocks and it helps a lot. If you really want to get serious you can do 30/70 front struts and it helps with weight transfer

I'm in the same boat. Suspension before power. Doesn't do anything if you have the power but can't put it down. Heck, I'm sure the 420 crank/360 ish rwhp that I'm putting down is farking fast with proper suspension, instead of the factory junk.

I'm only at 290ish to the wheels now I think, and I just can't put it down with my MPT tune. I go sideways with advance track on. This is with the GT Pirellis on, which I know aren't great, but they're not bad. I guess I really need some LCA's and maybe a new set of tires eventually

Yeah, the pirelli tires suck at putting down power from a dig. I'll go with Michelin AS3'S when I get new tires. Y'all already know what suspension and power mods I want.

I have been eyeing the Nitto NT555's and the Sumitomo HRZ3's
Ultra performance tires
Maybe I should go with all seasons since I live in NY... Idrk

All the kits for 11 and 12s you have to cut the bumper. It's nothing drastic just a little bit

We had to do a bit of cutting, almost an extra hour of cutting, testing, cutting and testing.
Very tight fit.

It works on the 13s because of the different front bumper (not sure on the fogs though)
But we did have to drill out a good bit of the bumper, not much though
It is still structurally sound

Oh no doubt about that. Theres ways to make anything work if your handy enough. Had my fair share of parts to rig so they work on different vehicles including the current one.

We have fabricated so much stuff at coty's house (non turbo stuff)

Good luck with the dyno, I plan on getting this kit or a revised version once my warranty runs out in 3 years...too much waiting.

I'm in the same boat as you man... this or a procharger or whatever else someone can come out with in that time period. This kit looks good just needs a little refinement to be produced and some better marketing/management. Can't wait to see Alre's dyno.... Since he has gotten the kit and Clamph has released actual info. I have changed my stance on the kit a lot.

Yeah i get that. Stumbled on this thread a few weeks ago and read through all the posts only to find its not really ready for production. Gives me hope though, no need for a GT...if other kits (and im sure they will come out) like this one then the V6 will be able to produce enough power for my needs. People like you and me will be able to get the best version possible as either this kit or another competing kit. Hopefully will all the kinks out and great numbers for a daily driver.

That and it's better for the motor as far as boost goes. More efficient and what's cool about the turbo is that it's coolant cooled. The hardest part besides squeezing the hot and cold inter cooler pipes was probably cutting and clamping the cooling lines. Oh and the flipping bumper. Other than that, this kit was a pretty straight forward install. Click image for larger version
