Greetings everyone,<br><br>I am looking to perform a turbo upgrade on my 1992 1st gen. I was wondering if it is at all possible to install the "wastegated" version of the PDR HX-35 w/14 cm turbo on to my truck? <br><br>Any information would be greatly appreciated.<br><br>Thank you,<br><br>Nicholas R. Gajewski

Absolutely Nicholas, just like any other turbo install.<br>You'll need a to tap a boost pressure signal for the wastegate, but other than that, you're good to go..<br><br>bob.<br>

Thank you for the reply Bob. <br><br>By the way, where or what do I need to tap into, in order to get the boost pressure signal for the wastegate? I am also wondering if I would need to purchase a new downpipe for this turbo conversion as well? <br><br>Would anyone know if Piers can get new downpipes?<br><br>Thanks again,<br><br>Nicholas R. Gajewski

To get a boost signal you simply put in a T-fitting were your boost guage connects to the manifold. You run one line over to the wastegate, and the other to your boost guage.
Some have used a second 'blind plug' on the manifold/head and taken the boost from there, but I like the idea of using the T fitting.
If you're going with a 14cm housing your downpipe will need to be shortened about 1 1/4"
Piers does have downpipes, but you should check to make sure they are the correct application eg: 1st Gen, 2nd Gen etc.
