    just plug n play

    a fitting kit is nothing special - just a couple of t pieces and some hose - the big companies just trick u into thinking u need their specific kit .... BOLLOCKS!!!


    just replace the actual valves - done!


    Please tell me u didnt fit the attrociously designed spacer in place of the spring in the original recirculating valve on the turbo?

    i would also suggest u do NOT run a 1-way valve on the OE valve line - if u do, the cars a prone to stalling.

    best having both the OE valve and the collins running in unison.
