Default Finally getting the Hahn Turbo! Help?

Yes, I am getting the turboas a birthday present. Now I nee to find out what i need to know to do the installation. I have 2 friends who know more about engines than i do, and all the tools necessary. I know my car will be out of commission for at least a weekend. Can anyone give me some advice or a website that can give me the instructions or something?

Wow that is awesome news, congrats.
Its really not that hard and it comes with the instructions.
Get it, make sure you have all the parts, read the instructions many many times, plan the steps out in your head. Let your friends read the instructions many times.
You will need a blow off valve and there ar many to choose from ranging from a factory audi tt one for $40 to an adjustable one for $400.
When you do the install you may get stuck at one point or another. i will offer my assistance to you if you need it and can give you my phone # if you need immediate help.[?]

Now are you sure your friends REALLY know alot about cars and stuff?? Never done anything like that before personally, but even with my automotive exprience I think I would personally let somebody else install it... I wish I could get a Turbo for my Birthday, all I'm getting is a gun case and some ammo.

Take your gun and ammo, drive on over to TaylorMade place. Bingo, you now have a turbo.

BTW TaylorMade, do as RallyDRock suggested, take your time and if need be, make a call to him. Good luck.

Give yourself more than a weekend. Make it a long weekend. Projects such as these almost ALWAYS run into small issues that take up big time.

i have the Turbosmart BOV. it was $300 ouch[B)] i needed it that day so there were no other choices but it is a really good one and is adjustable.

the turboXS RFL is as it says really "f'n loud"


basically if its got a trumpet it'll be pretty loud.
