Turbo install questions
I have the old PTK single turbo kit and I'm wondering
what do you guys do with the turbo being so close
to the radiator..my stock fan will not fit..any suggestions
will be appreciated..this is my first turbo build don't know
if something is wrong or I have to be creative..
thanks for any help in advance it's the old PTK kit with the
custom sheet metal intake and the intercooler at the bottom
seems in pictures the turbo mounts closer to the passenger side
but with my kit seems like it's directly behind the radiator in the middle..

Yea. Same here. But didn't tilt mine forward. Would like to though.

Trimmed away about 1/3 of the fan shroud where the Turbo is. I have the on3 kit with a 76mm. Found that a 1/2" spacer in between the flange and the Turbo moved it up and back enough for nice clearance, but I had already trimmed fan, so I didn't go that route.
