well... I'm sure no one will care more than who actually owns the car!..

I'm taking my time to think abd plan things before execution . .. especially the meth kit.
as there's not a documented DIY or detsils on best practices of routes and install points on 997.2

I'll do the DIY when I'm done. and I'll share lesson learned

thanks for the encouragement mate!

can you point out common issues or mistakes you saw so I avoid them ??

I've routed the feed line from the pump along the fuel lines, then when reached the engine bay, I went close and touching the hot coolant return pipe. not sure if that's ok or not... but I did do little aluminium foil tape on the nylon hose.. and from what I've been told, the hose is heat proof.


advise please with whatever knowledge you've got


thanks again

Progress report number 6 , 25 Nov 2016


ok, today I was determined to turn on the engine... which I did

what's accomplished:
1. fixed IPD plenum, I didn't see a peoper DIY for installing it... but I've figured a way that was super easy... just lube the silicone hoses and push them all the way on the plenum... then position it on the intake manifolds and slide them over... that's it!

2. installed do88 intercoolers, straight forward, just followed the provided instructions .

3. installed the Throttle body, do88 Ypipe and the rest of the silicone hoses from turbo to inter cooler and from intercooler to Ypipe.

Looking to do upgraded VTGs and possibly tweak exhaust for more flow. Car is essentially full bolt on minus turbos right now.

One day hope to build an engine on the side for it and go ~GT30 type turbos for 1k HP. Need to find a donor engine first.

Looking forward to see how your car turns out. Good luck

Progress report number 7, 29 Nov 2016

hey all!


I was quite busy with work lately so I didn't put much progress .

but I'm pleased . I've done the following today:

1. I've stripped the interior at the back plus the two B/C pillars panels. removed also the carpet on the driver side to prepare to take out the PDK TCU.
2. ran the FAV wire and flow sensing wire from the engine bay inside to the cabin
3. ran the pump control wire from the trunk at the front to the back seat area. the HFS4 controler will be mounted behind the rear passenger side speaker. it's a tip I've got from friends to be able to access it when needed by only removing the speaker.
4. started thinking about the position and arrangements of pump and tank at the trunk.
