Tools and Materials Needed:
- Full EAC Twin Turbo Kit with CARB EO# D-873
- Professional mechanic or performance shop
- Engine hoist and stands
- Socket and ratchet set
- Wrench set
- Dyno tuning equipment
Step-by-Step Installation (General Overview):
- Gather all the necessary tools and ensure you have the complete EAC Twin Turbo Kit with CARB EO# D-873.
- Park the vehicle on a level surface and allow the engine to cool down completely.
- Engine Disassembly:
- Begin by disconnecting the battery to prevent any electrical mishaps during the installation process.
- Remove any necessary components to access the engine, such as the intake manifold, exhaust headers, and other relevant parts.
- Turbocharger Installation:
- Install the twin turbochargers onto the exhaust manifolds, ensuring proper alignment and secure attachment. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the specific turbochargers in the kit.
- Intercooler Installation:
- Install the intercooler(s) in the appropriate location within the engine bay. This may require modifications to the front bumper or other areas to accommodate the intercooler(s).
- Piping and Hose Connections:
- Connect the intercooler piping, hoses, and couplers to ensure proper airflow and cooling of the compressed air between the turbochargers and the engine.
- Exhaust Modifications:
- Modify the exhaust system to accommodate the twin turbochargers, ensuring proper flow and minimizing backpressure.
Tuning and Calibration:
- Once the physical installation is complete, the vehicle must undergo extensive dyno tuning to calibrate the engine’s ECU to work optimally with the twin turbo setup. This step is crucial for ensuring proper performance, drivability, and emissions compliance.
- Final Checks and Testing:
- Double-check all connections, hoses, and fittings for any leaks or loose components.
- Start the engine and test for proper turbocharger operation, coolant flow, and exhaust performance.
