A td-04 on an ej22t

Post by hawaiianEJ22T »

So how hard is it to change from a vf-11 to a td-04 turbo with the engine still in the car?? Im new to having a turbo car so sorry if its a dumb question.

The biggest challenge is dealing with the different turbo outlet positions. You'll have to create a different turbo outlet piping and/or put in an intercooler.

Yeah I was going to install an intercooler when I did the turbo install..is a FMIC hard to put in? or is it not worth the trouble trying to run all the piping? just stick with a top mount?

Yes it's not easy, and it's pointless with a td04.
