Regarding installation of this Pontiac G8 Turbo Kit:

We are the parts supplier, not mechanic. We can try our best to help with generic questions, but it is best to consult a professional turbocharger installer with specific questions.

There are no installation instructions included. The install is simple and most customers install it themselves in a weekend. If you cannot figure it out or feel uncomfortable with the installation, please have a professional assist.

Most of these parts are direct bolt-ons. Some are not.

The piping needs to be fitted up. Because of the bends and couplers included, it should be simple.

The T3 turbo flange needs to be welded to an adapter pipe or directly to the stock manifold.

To run this on a street car, the turbocharger down pipe will need to be connected to your existing exhaust. Expect to fabricate an adapter pipe or have an exhaust shop connect them.
