Yea it's been a major pain for me. I have had imgur fail me, tinypic fail me, and others.

Some people can see them others cannot. I pretty much gave up on this thread as everything I try has been hit or miss. Oh well.

I did get the turbos replaced and the car is up and running. I also did not have to move any steering components, sway bar components, and I left the subframe and motor mount in.

Maybe when this semester is over I'll look into fixing this thread but probably won't.

Thanks,

The only thing I can think of..... is that my galaxy s7 is formatting them in a weird way that is causing the problem. I am not sure why some people can see them and others cannot. I am having this issue on every forum I am a part of.

Hopefully I will have some time to sort this all out after my finals are over.

Happy Sunday! How's the car running with the VTT's,? Since I can't view the pics on your work done, how the inlets hold up?, can you eliminate a lot of the unnessasary hoses as you described? Couple things to add, I'm in process of finishing up the m5 bumper and found you need the m5 shock bumpers, the lci won't fit. Did you do the wheels, I'm in process also, I don't know if I can justify another $700 to recon just the front face. Keep this tread going,lots of good stuff

Looks like I will have to resize all my pictures one by one until I figure out a better way to shrink them. I will keep working at this slowly but surely.

Figured it out. It was a permissions issue on my end,so now I do not have to resize everything. I should have this all fixed by the end of the weekend.

Actually I was misinformed about this, I went and bought a set of m bumper shocks and couldn't get one side to bolt up. I apologize for this info as I just finished my m5 bumper using all the oem parts. Thank you !

Good thread. I have the same car. Some of the pics don't work but where did you relocate the vacuum canisters and coolant overflow to? The AC line you relocated, I'm assuming it was the one running along the passenger side of the engine? Where and how did you relocate it? With all this space a top mount turbo may be possible?

I have pictures fixed through page 3 now to answer the canister and coolant expansion tank.

Yes, that is the line I relocated arounf the back of the engine . I rented an a/c line that was already made to spec from USCBR(member). I then took his a/c line and mine to a shop to have it replicated. The shop I went to did a slight redesign due to the materials on hand. I still have not charged my system yet.

I am also currently working on a user friendly m5 dsc relocate. This should provide more than enough room for a single turbo.

All I know is that with all this room in this engine bay, I was able to swap turbos without: lowering the subframe, removing the sway bar, moving the power steering rack, or removing the passenger side motor mount. I was also able to pull the front turbo from the top.

Here are the rest of the shots I have. I kind of gave up on taking pictures since my images were not working. Can't wait to get into another project.

Both catch cans installed..



Full access to the turbos from up here.



Shots from under....





Another side note. If you do not take the motor mount off you cannot completely remove this heat shield(circled in red) for the front turbo oil and coolant lines. You will have to be creative here as I cannot remember exactly what order I removed which lines. Removing the motor mount would have require so much more work than this inconvenience.



Turbos removed...See the heat shield?



There was a heat shield on the motor mount that I removed which makes installing the v band clamp much easier. Next time I am in there I will take photos of how I have the clamps positioned.

what size where the larger hard vacuum lines? i would like to change those out also. the ones from the vacuum pump to brake booster?

what was that vacuum line coming from the fender? I've never noticed that on my car?

Those wee 3/8th reinforced hose I uses to replace the hard plastic lines.

And what vacuum line the goes to the fender are you referring to?

The other vacuum hard line that goes into the fender.. this comes from the module that eventually plugs into the throttlebody

This is fuel tank breather line that plugs into the fuel tank vent valve, which plugs into the throttle body. Here is where it plugs into the sensor.
