The kit I bought has turned out to be anything but a kit. Turbo compressor inlet and outlet smaller than intercooler piping supplied in the "kit". So there's no way to hook it up. Of course no one in town has anything to adapt it with. Then the straight pipe with the flange welded into it for the BOV is 2.25", the intercooler in/outlet are something over 2.25" but less than 2.50", and all the piping and connectors are 2". But wait, turbo compressor inlet is 1.75" and outlet is 1.5". Got a lot of cool s#*t, but none of it works together. I wish I had it to purchase all over again. I would buy the individual components myself. Then I'd know they would fit.

What/where did you get this kit I'm curious?

Id be mad if i got lot of stuff that don't match up as well

The intercooler will make the equivalant differance as adding as much as 2 to 3 pounds of boost. I don't know how the turbos hook things up, mine is supercharged, but if the blowoff is after the turbo but before the intercooler, the volume after that is cooled for the most part. You can get twice as many air molecules in that volume at 100 degrees as you can at 200 degrees. This benifit more then makes up for the increased volume. If there is a lag increase, It should only be right off idle before the turbo spools up.

On matching the tubes, try a muffler shop. Many of them have ther ability to swedge tubing from one size to another for slipping over or into another piece.

Hey guys, going with the intercooler was decided based on trying to increase the density of the air charge, like Lenny said. Do we really need it, no. But to get the most out of the turbo set up, I decided to go that route. Plus, as I understand it, you can run higher boost pressures with a cooler air charge as the hotter and higher the pressure in the cylinder, the more prone to early ignition. The real benefit of cooling probably depends on style of driving.

This is the "universal turbo kit" on eBay that says its for Joyners. Like I said, wish I had just bought the items individually myself instead of falling for easy ideas of the "kit". It didn't even include the items that it was supposed to. Aside from the pipe size issues, it was supposed to include a boost controller, instead it had 3 boost gauges.....what am I gonna do with three boost gauges? Sell them I guess. Also, if anyone is considering this deal, skip it. Things I know now that I wish I knew before - its just a T15, oil cooled only, turbo and universal intercooler kit from CX racing. You can buy directly from them for half the price. Thankfully I did bargain the price down so I didn't get ripped off too badly that way, but I'm still sinking money into it buying all the little bits and pieces to make everything work together.

i turned boost up to 10 psi it didn't like it 7 psi works good.dedub

Did you get pre-ignition or what did it do. Possible it started running lean. If that is the case, you could try a little bigger injector. I run 26 pound injectors in mine and I get about 10 pounds of boost maybe a bit more. Do you have an aftercooler yet.

I have an extra set of 4 injectors that I was planning to sell if you are interested. They are reconditioned Bosh type III 19 lb injectors, skinny body style. It was $100 for a set of 8 or $60 - 80 for a set of 4. Flow matched, rebuilt with new parts. Let me know if interested (or anyone else is).

My install updates as of this weekend.....see picture :(

      I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?

      Looking for the truck bed components 2018 Textron 900 Stampede.  There is limited information available for the assembly.  Might need a parts list.

      The owners manual isn't helping as it doesn't look accurate. The bottom looks like an entire panel. Thanks in advance.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap
