This thread was created for any questions regarding the install of our kits. This is the first draft of our instructions so some revisions may be necessary If you have any product questions, please refer to our GB thread in the FDNewbie forum.

Good luck with the installations everyone. Any bashing should be directed at RotorMotor for taking so long to get the instructions finalized Feel free to leave any questions, comments or install pics in this thread!

hey guys... ive been getting some PM's with install questions. Honestly I dont mind answering them personally, but I bet others will have the same questions and benefit from from your question. I know it's an involved process, but Dan and I are here to guide you through it.

and to answer one PM publicly, yes we are working on a 20b mounting option which hopefully will be done this week. Since the 20b install is a one off setup, we have to charge a little extra for shop time to build the custom brackets/lines.

David... we'll definitely help you sort it out! Let me know some details... where is the leak coming from? got any pics? There are many connections, so first we need to figure out where its leaking from. I'm sending you a PM now. -Heath

Would the dual oil kit fit behind a stock FC bumper? If so, would I need to get different mounts/bolts to secure it? I'm not worried about the lines fitting. I plan on dropping a REW into my FC.

Can you update the link in this thread to the revised instructions (including the super-fast way to remove the stock oil hard line)?

What revised instructions? They should be up to date. Does the link not work?

I just installed the '99 spec Track kit (25 row setrab) and when I put the bumper skin up, the coolers were sitting too high for the openings of my GTC bumper. I noticed the JhnRX7's install includes lowering spacers. I ended up picking up 6 longer bolts, and 6 spacers to lower it, so it covers more of the opening in my bumper skin.

Without Spacers: (raises the top of the cooler higher than the 19 row)



With Spacers (Nice and low covering the full opening of the GTC Bumper openings:

I put in my order last week, am keen to do this install!
It seems like the line that connects the two coolers is routed through the front bumper (support). Is there a way to route it through/below the engine bay instead, to reduce the risk of severing a line if you get in a minor fender bender?

You'd probably just have to flip the coolers, not sure how that would effect the orientation of some of the fittings though.

If I'm reading the instructions correctly, you only need to take off the AC compressor and PS pump in order to take out the original oil cooler hard lines.

If I don't plan to use the hard lines again, is there a way to remove it without taking off the AC and PS? Say, for example, by cutting the hard line into smaller pieces? (With a grinder/die grinder?) It seems like the risk and time involved with removing and reinstalling the PS/AC may not be somewhat high.

Thoughts?
