Hey .. I take that personally since I'm the one asking the dumb questions lol. It should be credit to me that with the little knowledge I have I have installed every bolt on part and troubleshooted every issue so far. This one's not my fault. =D
3 years ago I would of needed to Google how to do an oil change. You're not alone lol

I just got the housing the other day, but I literally just had a hernia surgery the other day. Now I have to convince a new friend who already helped with the original install to help me out. I dont really feel comfortable with remembering where all the hoses go and the bolts on the side of the turbo inlet. Im on a lot of meds that cause brain fog and shaky hands and no memory, so I need some help. I am hoping that tomorrow he might help me install and we can have the issue resolved.
Good luck man I hope it works out!

If your worried about where the hoses go, number them with tape and draw a diagram of the positions. Take pictures with your phone before you take anything apart as well.

what a rough start i hope this is no indication of how things are gonna go with the turbo in the future, really looking forward to have this turbo installed in my car but man this whole housing thing got me thinking...
True it has been a rough start but this the key point of beta testing. It’s our part to find points of issue in order to get them resolved before putting the part out there for some one like yourself. This way you have a product you know has been tested and will be fine to put on your car. 👍🏼

Rich has done a lot to make sure that I receive a complete working unit that's been tested. Since I am not super comfortable with reassembling and making sure it works. Which is just good customer service, and although some of this has been rocky to say the least. I am sure the end result will be worth it and the build quality is super clean.

What are we thinking is the max safe psi we could expect with this turbo?
