STS rear mount help

Bought a sts rear mount off the forum and it didn't come with any instructions for the install. Just wondering if anyone had these instructions, or knows where to find them. Thanks

Out of all the forced induction choices out there, how did you decide the STS was the one for you?

It was hard to spend 30 bucks on some printed paper, but I also broke down and bought another wiring harness as well.

And as far as force induction, iI chose the STS setup because I had a roots blower on my GTO and wanted to try the turbo system out. Plus I had got it off the forum for a good price, so less $$=more go fast parts

couple things to prepare yourself for...

1.) if it is the turbos that come with the kit, be prepared to swap those out.

2.) If it is the STS oil pumps, also be prepared to swap those out as well.

3.) might want to also look into upgrading hoses and connectors they have for their pipes too.

STS wanted 355 for new pumps, have herd they were problematic.
What's with the turbos and the connecting hoses? What would you recommend?

And being from Illinois, did you make it to the Chicago 1/2 Mile Private Runway Shootout last week?

Nope I missed the shootout to to work and family plans.

Turbowerx makes the best oil pump in my opinion. Not crazy loud and can run dry if need. Its about $400 but trust me is worth it.

As far as their hoses, I have heard of them piping off a lot. Just invest in a decent T-clamp and you should be good.

sent from my galaxy s3. that would explain the errors.
