I understand you so much Lol!

People can say what they want, but I dont think the kit is cheap. People who say things like that have never really experienced what it is to put a turbo on a uncomom car! There is always a little something to tweak, and only with time you will fix every little things. But you need to live them before!

I have my own turbo kit that I run for about 6 months now, with only a base tune on Aem FIc. And still now I have never really feel the real potential on the car because I cannot... First of all I put a too small turbo 2 times! and now waiting for the good one (well I think this time is good!)...

Anyway, not gonna write all my life :P Just wanna wish you a good luck!

Updated this also. It's been 2 years and four months now and things are going quite well. Here are the problems I've had with the kit so far

-Oil return. Tapping the block proved to be the better option
-BOV. Quality is questionable and I would recommend an aftermarket one.
-Actuator broke. Replacing it was easy and only $20. Finding the right size bracket can be tricky though.
-Downpipe weld gave out. Local mechanic welded it back up same day free of charge.
-Worm-gear clamps are sub-par. I had a crap ton of leaks coming from the couplers as a result. I'd recommend replacing them with t-clamps.
-One of the clamps actually sheared a hole in my AC line (down by the radiator/ac compressor). This can probably be attributed to user error.

Heya Garm!

You'll be happy to know the tC is in GREAT condition. I definitely commend you for building such an amazing car. She's currently sleeping in the (heated) garage for the winter, but come spring she'll be spending a decent amount of time at the track I hope.

I'll do some updates in the spring. I also need to make an attempt to get back into the community here... Glad to see some more people have turboed, but let's be real - there needs to be many more turbo yaris owners!

BTW, I'm going to need some "goodies" from you in a few days.

Focus I was wondering does the Boomslang Plug 'n Play Wiring Harness simplify this process at all?

You only currently have 2 options which will run you about the same amount of money which was proven by a member (CTScott):

1) Boomslang - breaks the heart and bank, but it is a plug and play which has different options for which management you use be it one of the piggybacks or a standalone. You essentially are injecting the PnP harness in the middle of things with certain wires either tapped or intercepted for signaling. The ends on the harness have male/female where required when it comes to plugging into the factory harness and the stock ECU. The BSlang also has a jumper to be able to run the car if needed without the management plugged in.

2) Custom Harness - time consuming and you had best have a lot of wiring knowledge.

Hey Focus,

I contacted Zage about the kit. I pointed out the fact (made no reference to you) that drilling and tapping of the block was required back when you fitted the kit in 2010 for oil return due to excess blow by. Apparently they use a different, larger hose setup now.

Do you think this would remove the issue you experienced?

Cheers
Lep

No problem. I wasn't sure if you were looking for the install guide pics, or other pics in this thread.
