Td04 15t swap

I just got done doing the swap. I used brass washers and it seems to be holding. The hard lines sucked to deal with. i plan on doing the downpipe 2maro. I made sure i primed the turbo. and took it for a ride. Seemed to be working well. I didn't boost on it just took it easy. i cant wait to get the stage 3 tune. and install all the other goodies i have for it.

Sounds good so far. If you encounter any leaks ,try the washers with the rubber seal. Ive used those with good results

Thanks for the reply! I haven't noticed any leaks yet. I was going to use those, but had thought that they wouldn't stand up to the heat ?

If you do have a problem, another thing you could try is this stuff: Universal Blue

You just do a real thin coating on the mating/sealing surfaces; it's great if you want to try to reuse a copper sealing washer, things like that. It makes a good gasket dressing as well. It doesn't dissolve or go away though and will goop things up if you use too much.
