    VTT N55 Turbocharger upgrade install guide

    I finalized the install guide today, and wanted to post it for anyone who wanted to take a look at it. If you are considering an upgrade, you can see exactly what this upgrade requires to be changed on your car over stock, not much. Any other N55 upgrades on the horizon right now will completely alter your car and remove the stock set-up, most likely voiding any and all warranties in the process, and that big torque punch the N55 is so known for that we all love will also say say goodbye. The case being, going with an after market turbo system will introduce quite a bit more turbo lag. Well hope you enjoy, if anyone spots any typos, etc, let me know. I haven't had them printed up yet.

    Which exhaust bots are not included? Specifications or part numbers?

    Thanks Tony.
    Might be a good idea to include part numbers for step 7.
    I know it's not hard to figure out but gives people one less thing to stuff up Click here to enlarge
    7. ALL new factory gaskets and O-rings are required to be used as part of the installation. We also suggest changing the exhaust studs, and nuts.

    I extracted the pdf to jpg and added it in but the idiotic Vbulletin attachment management system put it all of order. Let me fix that.

    We now include this o-ring, and we added every stock part you need to replace including part numbers at the end of the guide.

    Donut Gaskets: 1165793303 – 6 required
    Is that the correct part number?
    I can't find it anywhere.

    Good catch. This is the correct number. They are the same as the N54. 11627558906
