The oil coolers are all the same on manual and automatic cars. as long as it has the factory oil cooler. of course, any aftermarket oil coolers are bigger and more efficient, but as far as the factory oil coolers, they are the same among manual and automatic cars.

My Stage 2's arrived. Now I'm waiting on Vargas to ship my 2" inlets and hotside charge pipe so I can put them in. I have RB high flow drains ready.

On the original turbos, my car is smoking worse than before. Still only when at part throttle after boost or when stopped at a light after some boost. It's not cool.

Also, what bov specifications are you using bro? I'm on the Tial BOV
just regular stuff- coils plugs... tires lol

i did the manifold mod which was tapping a barb fitting (1/4in) to the BOV
i tried going with a lighter spring (8lb) and that didnt work out to well instead i believe the 11lb spring would be best. im still on the original 10lb spring.

btw ER chargepipe.

Don't get VTT inlets, very flimsy and crappy quality. My friend has RB inlets and right off the bat you can tell effort was put in to these things.
Anything but VTT really.

Oem oil lines are good.

You can exchange stage 2 for 3 for not much at all.

I ordered my s2 pure turbo from Mike at n54tuning, got a great deal from him, and he was vary helpful with any questions I had with my car. As for the turbos from pure, absolutely gorgeous and what a difference in power from stock turbo. Sent my old turbo to pure and refund my core same day. I can't be happier

Wanted to throw up a quick review here on my PS2s.

Service was great. I was able to get the PS2s installed along with some VRSF inlets and 7" FMIC. I am scheduled to get a dyno tune done at the end of the month. I can say for a fact that after loading the MHD Stage 2 93 pump flash with no JB4 the car is an ANIMAL! I can't believe how fast boost builds down low. My previous setup was making 460whp/510wtq and I know for a fact the car is doing a significant amount over that right now. 2nd gear just goes up in smoke with anything over 1/2 throttle and 3rd steps out around 4400. Spec Twin disc is just broken in so I am hoping its up for what's next. Direct Port Meth

Nice man I know the feeling. What psi are you on with 93? And how much power are you trying to make on direct port Meth?

Ya so right now my MHD logs are showing me maxing out around 18-19psi with very conservative timing ( under 5* at peak tq) and I am not seeing any timing drops as it always look very smooth and consistent pull to pull.

I am targeting just under 600whp and want to keep boost under 24 lbs for long term reliability and daily driving.

To be honest, the 19psi I am making now feels so much strong than 19psi w/ e85 on the stock turbos that I am even considering dropping the idea for PI. However, the idea of having clean intake valves and reduced chance of detonating is what making me stay with my PI plans.

The difference at 19 psi is substantial. You're around 550whp right now. At 23psi I made 601whp. You probably don't need PI but if you have the funds then I'd upgrade to keep fuel trims steady and ease of use. I think you can run 25-26psi with long term reliability which should be about 630whp. I'm going to redyno soon @26psi peak, tapering to 24psi so I'll post those results soon.

I made 451whp on a mustang dyno the other day at 21 psi. It was at a dyno day. Two other FBO JB4 N54's there made 330whp or less for perspective.

After a long winters worth of work, I finally had time to get my pure turbos installed. It's been a long road after going through 2 sets of smoking RB's, and then getting the run around with a JPworks single kit but finally my car is up and running.

I tackled the install myself, it was definitely a project I put a lot of hours in taking my time and making sure it was all done 100% perfectly. I haven't messed with my tuning much yet but even a couple quick pulls using map 1 felt awesome. Can't say enough about the customer service I've received dealing with Pure Turbos so far, now lets just hope these turbos prove to be reliable!

Awesome! I've been trying to keep track of your build to gauge where I would eventually end up. I just got the Fuel It Stg 3 LPFP in the mail and will be installing over the weekend. Waiting on DI nozzles now.

I'm impressed at the power you guys are getting. At which power point does the trans or engine start having parts failure because of the power? You guys have stock long blocks and trans?

You're running 19 psi on pump gas? I can't even get close to that with just pump (94 e10) I drop all my timing around 17 psi on pump. I'm running 70 additive on map 3 right now and the car is an absolute monster, loving it so far.

+1 to all.
The VTTs are softer, thinner and flimsier compared to RB inlets. Also barely any clearance on the front which is uncomfortably close to the main engine belt and pulleys. Considering the labor effort required to install them it just doesn't make sense to try to save $50-100 or whatever on a cheaper product. Especially when you hook them up to $4,000 turbos.
No need to bother with "Hi flo oil drains". Seem to cause more problems than they solve. Stock ones do the job.

Not trying to thread jack but we've moved around 150 sets of these out to customers over the past 7 months. Over this time we've had 2 complaints- one with an XI who said he had to save a tiny bit off his motor mount (easy fix for him) and one other who had problems with an RHD installation. We've had others install on those combinations (RHD and XI) with no problems, so . This said not sure the problems created are less than solved, as they certainly will flow much better- and it is ALWAYS better to have a drain that works as efficiently as possible than not. Anyway based on the actual stats of complaints it seems unusual to come to this "problematic" conclusion (based on what I know anyway), but agree one can get by with the OEM drains too.
