original turbo was TD05:
Managed to mount Aeromotive FPR and figure out the layout of fuel system.
Did my first ever AN hose end...
Well... I must say that they might be a really cool system, but It's not that easy. Especially without proper tools.
These stainless steel braided lines are real pain to work with, literally.. Cutting lines with angle grinder makes such a mess, but I couldn't find better way to do it. Will need to figure out how to clean them properly before final assembly.
Once cut braiding starts to open up and it's real pain to put it in the nut... Also not having proper AN wrenches I scratched all the nuts
well, it's not going to a beauty contest anyway...
Also I noticed that after tightening the fitting hose moves back in the nut about 1mm. I read that it shouldn't move back, but I believe that 1mm doesn't counts really as a failure...
Please correct me if I'm wrong before I spray engine bay with fuel
In general, final assembly is not such an easy step as I thought. Maybe it would be easier with OEM parts, but all those silicone hoses and aftermarket stuff create packaging issues. The more stuff I put in the engine bay, the more question I have
I thought that fuel plumbing will be easy, but that FPR is so big! And looking on nice AN plumbing setups I couldn't even imagine that those fittings need so much space. Nice learning experience
