guide to the rev9 turbo kit

For those of you who aren't stupid enough to get your parts from ebay, the rev9 kit is a $1700 knock off of the turbonetics/treadstone kits. You can manage to use this kit, but you'll more than likely have some serious issues that need to be taken care of. For basic install instructions, use this pdf: http://www.treadstoneperformance.com...install-70.pdf

**This may not apply to everyone, this is what I personally went through**

1st problem:
The pipe that connects both headers together has a serious restriction inside of it. No bigger than half an inch in diameter.



This was fixed by cutting a square hole in the opposite end of the pipe (where the red arrow points), widening the restriction to the proper size, and re welding the square shut.



Problem 2:
The v band fitment leading from the drivers side header is awful. Never try to connect v band flanges that don't sit flush because they will leak.
Cut the pipes and bend them until the flanges sit flush. Then re weld the cuts.

**Be careful who you pay to weld your ****!!!** I paid a shop to do this sense it had to be on the car for proper fitment. These are the welds they left me. The shop tried to hid these
welds by putting exhaust wrap over it lol.


Problem 3:
The flange for the wastegate had a hole in the corner that would allow it to leak. Fixed through a simple tack weld then grounded flat. Still crazy that the kits welds are this bad.



Problem 4:
This cold side pipe sits very close to the crank pulley. The tabs that mount the pipe to the engine had to be bent in order to mount up properly. Not a huge deal but definitely something you should not ignore.


Other ****:

Don't use their wastegate. It seems to be decently constructed, but I still wouldn't trust it. I'd recommend to go with a trusted brand like tial.

Don't use their v band clamps either. They break easily and leak. Go with ticon 2 inch and 2.5 inch v bands, they're cheap worked well for me.

All silicone couplings and t bolt clamps worked well for me.

The included bov is adjustable and worked for me.

Oil lines and fittings were ok too. For the oil return I used a pan spacer rather than drilling into my upper oil pan.

I didn't end up using the included turbo. Long story short, the turbo blew up on the dyno because the oil feed line was not routed properly lol. I am running a precision 6266 instead.

If you want to keep your air conditioning, you have to buy the momentum performance ac line, because you'll burn through the oem one. You can find it here: https://www.z1motorsports.com/forced...ne-p-9843.html

Overall the kit is ***. You get what you pay for. With that being said, this still was thousands of dollars cheaper than any other alternative. I have this kit on my daily at 9psi. Been running it for 3500 miles with no issues. **knock on wood**

Let me know if you have any questions

Its the simple rev9 kit. Sometimes they pop up for sale without a turbo or wastegate at all for 1400. If you see that jump on it.

I'm tuned on uprev with the gt maf sensor

bosch 550cc injectors, walbro 255, and ngk 1 step cooler plugs

You don't technically need a spacer but I'd highly recommend it.

I'm running the isr single exit, go with anything that's free flowing but remember you cannot run a true dual exhaust with this kit.

v bands bent so easily I broke 2 of them just by taking them on and off once. The one I didnt break started leaking badly. I can take on and off the ticon v bands all day with no issues

precision 6266

Stinks there isn't a huge market for quality twin turbo kits for the G anymore... feasibility is the issue... most folks who have Gs typically don't want to throw that kind of money into a car that old.
