I do not have to bend the lines that is fine. But over on the pass. side the lines going to the condenser are right in front of the turbo outlet.... No bending will get these out of the way, and also against the turbo flange.... Are you running different lines or what?I grinded the back of the block that holds the lines to the compressor a little and bent the lines at the condensor a little. Make sure you remove the line brace on the condensor first as we broke the lines the first time. Now it is fixed and all is well. Very tight but it will fit with patience and trial and error.
I don't know even with everything moved it is still VERY close to all the heat, even with protection.... Have you even used the a/c yet after driving for a while?So the AC is DOABLE with the kit? What about front sway bar?
I had all the brackets off, any kink at all in the line is going to cause pressure drops in the system and the line may freeze at that point(that point is going to act as your orfice tube/tev). Also with the compressor still being so close and possibly getting very hot I cannot see the system working properly. Ya you can get it to fit somewhat, but how well it is going to work is another story.Ours kinked too until we removed the little bracked that holds the 2 lines together on the condensor. We actually had 1 leak from flexing the kink. I got another one and removed the bracket first. We have not tried the a/c yet as we are having turbo issues at the moment. The car is not even driveable right now. I thought at first that nothing would work, but after a lot of time a patience it all worked out. Just sucks that we worked that hard to get it done then have the turbo fill the cold side with oil:hammer:
That is what I was going to do. Just some spots it seemed to close to even work... I just took mine off, gave me a nice spot for the oil filter. If I decide next year to have it on, over winter I may just have lines made. Let me know how it works once you get it running.Our new condensor does not have any kinks, but we do plan on putting some of that DEI cool wrap on the lines in potential hot spots also.
Not sure, but here is when the original owner put the kit on David Latil's Gallery :: SN95 PTK Turbo InstallationDifferent kit... How much bending was done to the lines?
