    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 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. Mines a mmr hotside and the stock stuff fits. Just had to extend two of the wires for the fan. I'm sure a slim fan from jegs or wherever will clear some room in there.

    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.
