I had a problem with my studs backing out. Not the nut.
I had to use some high temp thread locker. Good to 2100 degree.

Tightened the turbo nut and removed the tbi intake. The nut was extremely difficult to get tight. Test fitted the MPI intake and the top half hits against the abs unit. I need to get the temp sensors screwed into the new intake. Hoping to have it all mostly done by next weekend except for the fuel lines and wiring.

Intake is off! Anyone wanting to buy it or it's injectors, let me know.

Test fit the lower intake. It's snug but fits. Have to grind off a small part of the water outlet so the dizzy will fit.

But unfortunately the upper intake housing hits the ABS brakes. Time for it to go.

And gone! Now to just re-route that one brake line and bleed it.

Is that a boost gauge fitting on your brake booster line?

Yes, which I am most certainly moving! It shouldn't be there at all.

It's gotta be a right hand drive so brake booster is where the Abs unit would be on ours here in the States

Exactly. This is in Australia with the JDM version from Japan because we didn't get Widebodies over here.

Yeah I figured, just looks so strange. Not often I look under a Starion hood and see something surprising lol. Now I'm noticing all the little stuff like the wiper motor and VIN plate.
