Default Turbo Install Question

Hi everyone. I am installing a turbo on an '06 PT for a customer and came across an issue. I'll be honest, I havent done a lot of searching, but I'm hoping you can help me out.

He is going with 440cc injectors and an OBX fuel rail. The issue I just came across is that the thermostat housing and radiator hose hit the new fuel rail. Does the turbo PT come with a different thermostat housing? I need it to be about a 1/4 inch taller. We've come across a lot of hick ups along the way but I think this is one of the last humps we need to cross to get it done. Thanks for the help.

The manuals that I have that cover both the turbo and non-turbo models don't mention anything about one being different that the other.

Just thinking out loud but maybe cut the neck and extend it with a piece of radiator hose. Might be iffy with no way to bead the ends though to keep it from coming off. I wonder if you could apply heat and expand the cut ends a little or something...just rambling...

Yes and No. I have a hard copy of the Haynes manual and Chilton manual and a downloaded copy of the 01-04 Cruiser Repair manual.

Anyone can go to the Tech & Performance section of this forum under the "sticky" section and download the Repair model for their particular year.

*noted* Thanks for the info Crewzin. I downloaded the files out of the tech and performance section and opened them. I said "YES! THIS IS AWESOME!" I'm used to having to turbo a car with none of that kind of stuff...
