How to install 16g hotside/install in a 2g

Post by Onefast2gdsm on Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:24 pm

First things first, you're going to need some tools and parts to do this

14mm wrenches
17mm wrench
10mm wrench
10,12,14mm sockets of different drives
anti seize
o2 housing gasket
turbo to manifold gasket

Ok now that's out of the way, lets get dirty!

Here is the 16g with the hotside off and misc. parts

I had to helicoil my bolt holes, which is the reason I removed the turbo.

Here is the turbine wheel , don't get it confused with the compressor wheel

To install a new hotside, you must find the nipple on the hotside, and the indent on the chra, respectively.

Once you have found them, CAREFULLY put the hotside over the chra and line the nipple with the indent, it should now sit flush.

Next, get your clamp, bolt, and nut and secure the clamp between the housings.

Now its time to connect the wastegate. Just take the arm and put it over the hinge arm and secure it with cotter pin. You might need to unbolt the wastegaste from the turbo to connect it. Just rebolt after the arms are connected.

Here is a shot of my engine bay. I didn't remove a lot, so it will be a tight squeeze. I just removed upper rad hose, and left all lines on my turbo except one. If you are installing the turbo for the first time, I recommend putting your oil feed and coolant feed on before you drop the turbo in.

Line the bolt holes up in the front of the manifold. Grab your turbo bolts, and put some anti seize on them. I also recommend crush washers. DON'T FORGET THE GASKET WHEN INSTALLING TURBO.

After you line the two bolt holes up and put them in, start the back to and tighten in an x pattern, and go over them once more to make sure they're snug.

Connect whatever lines are left. On my setup its: coolant return is from water pipe to front of turbo, coolant feed is from thermostat housing to rear of turbo, oil feed is from head to top of turbo, oil return is bottom of turbo to pan.

when installing the return line, make sure to use silicone on the gaskets as well as crush washers, or you're going to have a nasty leak.

After the turbo is all bolted in, install o2 housing, and pour fluids in and make sure there are no leaks.

Have fun!
