FEW TURBO QUESTIONS?

Hey Guys, I have a few turbo questions. Im almost finished on the Cartech SS kit on my 91GT.

Few questions.

1. What kind of gasket should I run for the Downpipe and the Turbo Intake Gasket? Also wheres the cheapest to purchase?

2. Currently I have the stock Recirculating Bosch BOV and im looking to run an atmospheric. Where should the BOV be installed?

3. Im going to be running 60lbers, SCT Chip and a BA2400 i believe. Where should I run the MAF? Best location for this kit? I think its going to run between the TB and IC? GOOD LOCATION?

Ill post some pictures when i get home of my kit.
Thanks alot

1. I use fel-pro and put the high temp sealant (redish/orange stuff) on the gaskets.

2. My BOV is after turbo before a/a cooler

3. Maf, before throttle body with at least 4-6in of straight pipe leading to the maf.

Where my dp hits the back of the turbo, I just used copper rtv. Same for where the turbo mounts to the header. All of my v-bands use copper rtv too.

Is yours a passenger side mount? And if so does it have a really thick manifold to head flange? Mine does.

A Cartech SS kit on a 91 GT will have the turbo "header" on the drivers side but might very well have a thick flange still just seems to depend on when the kit was made. With that said I ran the same ARP header bolts with my Cartech kit that I did with the long tube headers I had prior to the kit. I do not recall anything special about those header bolts, I think they did have a 3/8 head but might be wrong on that, slept since then so not remembering too well.

Most say copper rtv is better than gaskets. Its too hard for me to work with, plus my header is not flat, so I use gaskets and copper rtv there. I also use stock headerbolts. I have stock headers too.

If I could find a re-usable gasket for the dp, I would get one for sure.

Looks like you are going to have a really fun car. As long as the surfaces are flat the copper RTV will seal just fine. I have a TTI street kit and had the hot side coated. After the coating the header was a little warped and did sit flush. Took it to a buddy that has a big table type belt sander and got it flat. Copper RTV and no leaks.

I use 1mm copper wire as gasket if RTV doesn't work..
I bend it 1/2 way around studs so they hold the wire in there, with some rtv.. The copper wire is soft annealed. Works fine...
The wire join is behind one of the bolts. I find smoothing out flanges with a little extra removed around studs/ bolt holes helps tension where gasket would tend to blow out..
