Thanks for the tips,

I don't have an issue with the shipping since I would like to order a gasket and radiator hose. All the other missing parts can be included in that shipment, like the bracket, fuse holder, dipstick plug etc.

Maybe I need a new set of instructions and parts list from you. The instruction manual is dated 2/13/07. The instructions you sent to ELio awhile ago stated this plug on the dipstick tube. Is this step not required?:

Step 7: Install ESS supplied plug on dipstick tube.

Tools required: -Flathead screwdriver

Locate the free outlet on the dipstick tube (Pic.59) where you pulled off the hose earlier. Install the supplied ESS plug hose to seal off this opening. Secure the clamp using a flathead screwdriver (Pic.60). Make sure you don't twist or bend too much on the dipstick tube. You might damage the O-ring that seals the tube down into the oil pan.



Also, am I missing these items?

Extension hose for fuel rail, qty =1
End caps with connectors, qty =2

Yes, you need the plug for the dispstick tube hose, I thought you ment a new dipstick..

The end caps/connectors are already on your TS manifold.

There is no need for a fuel rail extension hose on your model.

Thanks for the quick response! Elio told me you guys are top notch!

I would like to order the dipstick plug, the fuse holder, the bracket for the pump, a gasket, an upper radiator hose, a cap for the "gold" tube on the manifold and another set of all the nuts, bolts and spacers that come with the kit.


If you see anything else missing from the pics Asjborn, please include them too. Could you give me a total on everything and inform me how to pay?

Thanks alot,

Fran

Asbjorn,

Here is a picture of another member Paraklas' kit. He took these pictures straight of the box, just received a few days ago.
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...72#post6913672

Comparing the two pics Mine:



His:



My silicone sleeve setup has way too many opporunities for leaks. I'd like to order the L shaped hose along with the fitting that goes into the bottom of the silcone sleeve. I also notice that I have mutiple splices in the top hose also. I'd like to order that hose too. .

Next, Mine:



His:



I'd like to order the two hoses that connect to the brass fittings on the intake also along with the Loctite 5926 and 243

Here's my kit:



Heat Exchanger




Intercooler hoses


MAF adaptor


Oil for the Supercharger. From what I gather its 10W60


Loctite Gasket paste


Loctite threadlock


Radiator hose, by BMW


New engine belt, by Contitech


idler pullies


Bosch High Flow Injectors


Marine type pump for heat exchanger


Brackets for heat exchanger


Machined ATF power steering bottle.. NICE!


And finally, the Lysholm Twin Screw supercharger with the intake manifold.

Thanks for linking all those pics! Now I see where the four spacers and hex bolts go on the manifold.

Just curious, on the bottom of my manifold, it looks like bolt is missing, does yours look like this?



It also appears that I am missing a long hex bolt and spacer for my pulley:





Did your kit come with any other hardware, nuts bolts washer, brackets, fuse holder, dipstick plug etc?

Thanks for the help, pictures are worth a thousand words!

this sucks... After we removed and stripped the old manifold, installed everything else, we discovered that the 90 degree 11cm hose that connects the manifold with the idle valve is missing. Now my car sits half-disassembled in the garage.

Called ESS @ Norway and they will include a new hose when they ship back my ECU but I was hoping to have everything ready by the time ECU arrives.

ESS, will I have a problem if I just use a hose from my local shop? with steel wires inside..

Do you mean the one in my picture, the real small one? I would assume a water line hose would be sufficient.

Yes the real small one.

The support at ESS stressed that the hose must be with steel wires inside to avoid problems with suction. I can't find a hose here, steel belted, that can bend 90 degrees in such a short distance

Bummer....There has gotta be something local. This is a Ford kit and the hose in the picture may work for you, my guess is it's a waterpump hose.

Asbjorn, regarding hoses, is there something specific to the long water line hoses also? I was wondering if I could put something a little more attractive on instead. While I am ordering things, you can add this little hose to the list:

fmzip :

The newer version ESS IC coolant hose is all black. It is strongly recommended to use the ESS supplied IC hose as this is a custom designed hose which even if bent excessively is not possible to reduce flow in. The hose has extremely good quality and you can order the newer version of it without the printed yellow text on from us if this is important to you.

paraklas :

Have you checked the entire content of the box? That ICV hose is placed by itself in the box and it is quite small so it can hide easily. According to your packing list the hose was in the kit when it shipped out, so unless customs/FedEx has misplaced it during inspection it should be there. We will send you a new one along with your ECU as well, but do double check the content of the box once more just to be sure.

Thanks for the repply Asbjorn. I triple checked the contents of the box and couldn't find anything so I definately they must have lost it during the customs check here, because the box with the small parts had been opened as well - I'm not surprised this happened.

I'll wait till the updated ECU arrives to continue the installation. Hope you can ship it super express or something

Hi Fran,
