thanks!
Yes, I thought is was necessary. I do not know what the long term consequences would be if the stress was constant. Maybe a crack in the line would develop.

I did not notice that the CCV was close to the motor mount. As long as there is some clearance I don't see a problem.

All my wiring was removed and I re-installed so, yes, everything was cleaned up and installed with new cable ties and fabric wrap.

my CCV clearance can't be more than a quarter inch... i can't fit my finger between the bottom of the CCV and the engine mount... i don't see how it could be any better than that

I am glad i haven't fully buttoned this up... I am going to pull it off and relocate that wire as you stated... don't know why i didn't think to do that.

as for the bracket you cut off this portion?

Plus the area I show. The left side pushes on the small TB line. The area you show pushes on the main coolant line.

Hey, thanks for posting. The instructions are pretty good but your mileage may vary. But at least Turner posted instructions. I recently asked a vendor for some instructions on how to install an aftermarket kit they make and sell. Their response was there are enough pictures online to figure it out (there really isn't). I did figure it out but there were also enough gotchas where some instructions would have been helpful. Another small vendor (Off Camber) gave very detailed instructions with their kit (kudos to them).

All I really found when I was looking was broken links and people posting the answer "search" over and over again haha. Looking forward to reaping the benefits of this mod, but not looking forward to the install.

finally got mine buttoned up.... the install wasn't all that bad, but i took my time as i went through the entire process. I replaced pretty much all the vacuum lines. I re-did all the heater core hoses and a few other coolant hoses that run underneath the manifold and replaced all the gaskets. I ended up breaking a few pintel caps off the injectors when i pulled the fuel rail, so i just ended up sending them out for a rebuild since the car is old and i wanted piece of mind.

Mine did not fire right up, as I had air in the fuel system from removing the injectors AND doing the fuel filter. I got a few misfire codes but cleared them and haven't seen them since. Car runs perfect

Just take your time, DON'T force things. I'd advise you to remove the window cowling and the cover that goes over the blower motor... makes your life so much easier

Good luck! I am happy to answer any questions as I too found the internet to be jumbled regarding this swap and the Turner instructions were so/so.

If i had to do it all over again i'd probably go with M50manifold.com.... but i am perfectly happy with the turner kit ... i did repaint mine black because that blue looks cheesy

Did you end up modify the bracket(s) or did you omit one or both brackets?

Just the rear bracket, right? It is the front that does not fit.
