Racer X intake manifold comes tomorrow so I will keep you all posted on that as well!
Has a better firmer spring then stock turbo but ZZP doesn't recommend running ZZP actuator on their v3 turbos just something to keep in mind! Not really a HP gain mod just holds better boost for now with this trash turbo lol cant wait to get rid of it
Really? I have a ZZP actuator on my V3. They recommended it a year and a half ago. I just checked there website and they removed that recommendation since I bought mine.

That must be why I'm only making 240 HP. :LOL:

Racer X manifold is in !!! My kit is shown with the optional pcv kit racer x offers and of course in the LUV/LUJ family it’s a MUST lol
That looks hella nice. Will be nice to see how it looks when you get it installed. Just orderd the water outlet from Racer X this morning.

Sone updated pictures, had some time tonight to start reconnecting everything + OEM brake boost and pcv lines had to be modified but wasn’t all that bad, so far loving this kit install was very simple

ADDED NOTE * I recommend using a long adapter when installing the fuel rail onto this manifold + racer x recommended using pipe dope instead of Teflon tape and I upgraded the racer x clamps to some other ones I had, I like these style stainless clamps better but any would work find it’s just a bit of oil flowing through these pipes anyways!

Working on some new fog lights used the factory housing and i mount these , I have the same light on my enduro and very pleased with lighting, couldn’t stand the factory bulbs they sucked lol I will be filling in the holes around the bulbs with some kind of metal or maybe a thin plastic piece cut out for each fog light. I will post pics once both sides are completed !
