    so, i did a search and didn't find a complete answer.
    what are the pros and cons of the RS ant t3? what needs to be moved? changed, modded.
    PVC?
    thanks for any input.

    pvc and depending on ur t3 size, possibly the radiator..or at least the upper mounts notched to lean it forward a bit

    the RS mani is only a good fit(least modifications) on a 1g.

    all other gens the clutch slave has to be replace, moved , or modified.

    the PCV has to be modified(a lil difficult) to work unless u have a 2000 and up block.

    i had one but sold it. too many fitment issues on my 3g.

    but it can be made to work

    PVC needs to be moved if you have one.

    Clutch slave will need to be relocated if you go larger than a .42/.48 T3.

    Radiator will need to be moved forward a little but that's easy.

    I got the .63 on mine and i think it sucks. You have to trick the car into making boost and it always feels like your chasing it. It really doesnt even get fully spooled. Could be my tune but i am actually switching it out to .42/.48.

    to give you an idea i start making boost between 2,500-3,000.

    lowscort has an rs setup like me but hes got the .42/.48 and hes at 15 (full) boost by 3,000 rpm.

    so when i drive i have to think - no turbo, no power, and down shift accordingly. The smaller turbo will make for a more fun ride and is a better match IMO.
