only kit i installed was a 70mm turbo.


and the instructions say something about running the TB pipe thru the inner fender first. IIRC. so its on3's fault you didnt read it right, and drilled a hole in the wrong spot.

He received a 5.0 direction package on accident instead of the 5.8 packet we send. The old 5.0 directions routed the same way as the 351 kit, the new goes though the inner fender. It was a mistake but at the very to of the instructions it will state "87-93 5.0" very clear

We have a specific 5.8 kit so that the headers/crossover have been modified and also stepped to a 3.5" dp

Rob the customer going 8s was a 363ci notch with actually a larger turbo than he has, it was a turbonetics 78mm

Just as we talked your right i did get the wrong directions,but the only diffrence is the cross over pipe and headers.And that isnt a issue at all that i'm having!I sent you an email and a PM on here on how we can resolve this.I guess i'm being ignored now?
