Robo, thats unfortunate about the DDM rail. I hadnt even really looked that deep into the process of converting to the return style system (shame on me), i just assumed the plugs would be able to be drilled out and the outer threads would be used for plumbing the regulator and return lines. Now that i am thinking about it though, maybe you could use some old scraps or worn tools to spot weld something to the end of the plug that could be more easily gripped and then wrench it out that way.. similar to the trick used to get stripped/sheared screws out. Im just thinking out loud though. Its been a while since ive even observed the ends of the fuel rail on my car to know if this is feasible. But like i said, ill just cross that bridge when i come to it.
The Tial bov n wastegate look to be pretty high quality. Actually, everything ive looked at in the kit seems to be high quality. Doesnt look like there were any comprimises made in the design.
For now, im going through the turbo install instructions and pulling applicable kappa service manual procedures that way i shouldnt have to look up too much information from the manual mid-install. Id like to think this will save me a fair amount of time. LOL listen to me. I need something to get my mind off this or its gonna be a long week.
