Was debating on whether or not to post this but thought somebody might find it usefull

Over a year ago I bought a used never installed on3 kit with an upgraded intercooler and a new turbosmart 50mm wastegate, but i failed to read the ad that clearly stated it was for a 4v. I called on3 and searched but could never get a straight answere on if the kit would fit. I'm not trying to bash on3on this. I know the first gen kit not the best, but The reason I bought the kit was the price of the intercooler and wastegate seperate was more than i paid for the kit with them included. The only differences I have found with the kit is that radatior hose is different, and the tb piping might be. Mine was cut and had a section missing so I'm not sure. Other than that the kit bolted right up. I wil say this, I installed the kit in my garage on jack stands and fitment of kit was not the best. Then I took it to my buddies shop for some custom 2 inch wastegate piping and welding. We took the kit back off wrapped the pipes and installed it on a lift and fitment was way better. I have not fired it up yet to see if it leaks but v bands seemed to line up and seal well. I'm currently biulding a big bore stroker and will be changing to a C&G hot side kit with that motor. This is just to have some fun with stock motor.

Let me know when you get it ready to bring up to tune it

Shouldn't be to much longer just a couple power steering lines to rework and bend up oil supply line and a few other nick nack things. I will text you after I fire it up to let you know how base line tune you sent me is running. Got the 50mm wastegate to fit, if Pat B had welded like I ask I wouldn't have wasted time and money with him.
