OK, not complaining, but as with all Buschur parts there are no instructions included.

I am a pretty smart guy, and have figured out most of it. Two main questions and one confirmation question.

Question 1: How do I power the new slim line fan? The stock fan connector has three wires. On one side is a thick blue wire, the other side is a thick black wire, and there is a thin blue wire in the middle. The thin line Spal fan has a two wire connection, a thick black wire and a thick blue wire. I could take a WAG at it and connect the thick blue to the thick blue and the thick black to the thick black with the thin blue wire left out.... but I hate to use a WAG on wire work.

Question 2: Where do I connect the oil supply line? It looks like the kit includes a block off for the stock oil feed line, and has a nice braided steel line to replace it with.... but I have no idea where to connect it.

Confirmation question: Looks to me like I need to take a hack saw to my stock oil drain line and connect the severed pieces with the supplied rubber hose... is that correct?

Thanks for any help,

Keith

I've never installed a spal fan, but from what I've found, the thinner blue wire is probably for a lower setting/fan speed. Try the thick blue (power) and black (ground) wires. I'll dig out the manual and see if I can find anything else.

In Buschur's picture of the kit, the oil feed does look really long. Is it too long from the stock location? I'm wondering if it's suppost to go to the filter housing. :confused: I've noticed a hex nut plug down there like one the 1g, but I don't know for sure.

I had to hack my return line and use a piece of hose like that on my 2g. Just make sure the top piece fits the new CHRA. If not, the bolt holes might just need some filing to make them closer together...?

Let us know if any info Bushur's forum helps. Take pics for a wite up if you can. :thumb:

The feed is like you mentioned, remove that hex head plug and install the brass fitting for the SS feed line. The oil drain back I set up like I was talking about, cut off the bottom end of the old drain back line and conected it to the barb fitting on the turbo using the supplied rubber hose. Amazingly enough there are no oil or water leaks. I did blow off the lower IC pipe from hitting the rev limiter to many times though. That rev limiter now comes up VERY fast :D
