That's exactly what I did, if you unbolt the charge pipe, install the turbo, then put the charge pipe back on it will slide right over the turbo like butter no problem, forget trying to fight with that incredibly stubborn pipe! I just finished with my install and MAN was it a bitch to get to those back coolant lines and the bottom oil return line!! If there is an easy way of doing it someone PLEASE let me know. I only got to experience my E1 for like 5 minutes before I noticed this large cloud of white smoke following me, i think bad turbo seals. Now i have to take it off and return the turbo to FM so they can look at it.....grrr....but MAN did it sound sweet spooling up.

Default I have an E2

Mine runs great. I installed it not to long ago. You didn't overboost with it did you. It's easy to do with this thing. I recommend electronic boost control definately. 10psi in first,15 in second, then 20 in 3rd and 4th. They were very helpful with any question I had. I love my E2. Many races won young padawons. I would recommend this upgrade to anybody wanting thier srt4 to reach the next level without having to worry about many of the issues 50 trims are having. I.e. Blowing motors.

Just curious on this. Did you check to make sure your oil lines are not leaking on your turbo or manifold and burning off of that. If you dont put the crushed washers on the same bolts and sides they came off of they will leak for sure. If you have checked then sorry to hear about the turbo man. I have had mine for a couple of years now without problems.

So I hate my coolant lines on the turbo.


I got the top one on and couldn't get the bottom one on, it felt like is was threading but then it wasn't. I messed around with this for any hour.


I then took off the top line off and got the bottom one. Now I can't get the topn line on... I hate this car.


It's like I can't get the right angle to thread the banjo bolt. Anyone ever have this problem?

It is easier if you do the bottom one first (oil return line with gasket) before you put the turbo completely in the exhaust manifold. After you get that line hooked up then slide the turbo into the manifold and then do the top line. It makes it easier to reach under the turbo if you do this. If you dont have the directions this is a an ok write up here at this link.

Thanks, but not really helpful.


I'm talking about the coolant lines, not the oil lines.

I have a couple of hints for you, seeing as how I technically had to install and remove the turbo twice in a weekend. Taking the bolts off is pretty easy, but if you have some big hands its really helpful if you have a buddy there with you to hold the washers on the bolt while you twist and try to start the thread. For install, i went bottom oil return line first, then attached turbo to manifold, then bottom coolant, then top coolant (if you notice in the bottom line there is a notch, and in the top coolant line there is a prong. You have to make sure the prong sits inside the notch, otherwise the bolt wont thread). Then the top coolant line, and finally the easiest, the top oil line. For those bolts in that back, I got sick and tired of fighting in that tiny space that I went down to Sears and bought a 5/8 box end ratcheting wrench, the offset kind. made install SOOOO much easier. Oh and also get a 8mm box end offset ratcheting wrench for the bottom oil return line too, makes it a lot easier.

No i didn't overboost, i only hit 5 pounds (maybe) before i noticed my cloud. But im glad to hear yours is going good! Can't wait to get mine back and installed it sounded so sick spooling up! I have the AEM TruBoost EBC right now, but i dont think I can set boost depending on gear with it

Yeah I made sure nothing was leaking from those bolts, I felt all around and everything was dry. It was plooming out of the exhaust, and when I removed it and took out the charge pipe, I poured about a good 3 tablespoons of oil out, and I just went around the Block with it! Needless to say I put the stocker back on, smoke disappeared, and now im still waiting to get it back from FM...

I owe you guys on this forum big time. I'm about to finish up my E1 swap (time to smoke a cigarette or four) and this thread helped a ton. My E1 came with nothing but packing peanuts so I had no idea of any of the nuances of installing it until I read this thread 5 times. If any of you find yourself in Charlotte, NC there'll be a beer and a cigar with your name on it.
