od man. I was hoping you would start your own thread. Will be following your progress. As I stated in my thread we would like to hear about the rest of your build before you get started on the turbo. Good luck!

I'm Jealous :rock:. I've had a lot of Turbocharged cars in the past, and they are always so much fun. I've never had the opportunity to ride in a turbocharged Wrangler(Other than the 2.0t)

I don't know how much difference it would make but I'm kinda surprised that neither you or Jim put any kind of heat wrap or ceramic coating on the hot pipes to try to reduce under hood temps

It's a kit so of course we will each put our own personal touches on it over time. My heat shield for the turbo is on back order so we will see what kind if heat we are dealing with after that its put in place.

If you have a heavy right foot it's gonna get hot in there.

I'm sure I'll wrap the hot side, we will see. I went by and looked over the jeep today in person for the first time. Really clean kit, install was perfect. The intercooler is super tight to the front fascia, touches it down low. They have to remove the honey comb inserts for clearance. It looks good but I'll probably do a mesh or something to clean it a little.

PCM is due back tomorrow, had some bad luck with mail and holiday and delivery times etc.... soon lol.

Do you plan to dyno the power output?
