Finished my return lines last night, put the timing back together, and power washed the engine bay. I pulled both harnesses off last night and I am going to start with the wiring.

I have done some research on the sequential turbos and have read about rerouting some of the vacuum lines and putting a manual boost controller on the second turbo to regulate when it kicks in . I know it does not have a normal wastegate. I have read contradicting articles though. Has anyone on here messed with that.

Yes it is possible. i routed it that way when i had the twins and it helped spool them up but it also shortened there already short lived lives. To be honest you should start pieceing together your Single Turbo kit. Its what you want... really.

The twin oil drain seems a bit overkill to me. I look forward to you completing this project.

I am pretty sure this was cheaper than getting the parts from the dealer and I didn't have to wait a week for the parts.

it's really not it's $28 and it's a 2 days order, it's all about what you like and how much skills you have to make your own stuff

I agree if you were just going to do a wire extension, you wouldnt wanna have to unravel so much of the harness.
