2nd Try: What's missing from my ESS TS Kit??

Let's try this again!

I picked up this baby from Elio and I went thru the manual to see what little odds and ends may be missing. Elio has been nothing short of excellent in this entire transaction. This is the last step in our transaction to figure out what parts if any may have been left behind. We are hoping to iron this out in one shot with the help of other ESS TS2 owners and ESS Directly.

Here's the parts list :

Inlet manifold , qty =1
Inlet for supercharger, qty =1
Intercooler cores, qty =3
End caps with connectors, qty =2
Supercharger with 85mm pulley, qty =1
Oilventilation valve with hose, qty =1
Fuel rail spacers with bolts, qty =4
Bypass with hose and clamps, qty =1
3/4inch hose for frontelement 1,5m, 2,2m and 0,7m, qty =1
Jhonson waterpump with cable kit, qty =1
Hoseclamps 27mm, qty =6
Bracket for rerouting belt with spacer and bolts, qty =1
Bracket for upper radiatorhose with bolt., qty =1
Upper radiator hose, qty =1
Silicone sleeve between mas and trottle w con., qty =1
Serovoil cannister tank with 25mm spacers and b., qty =1
Oil for supercharger, qty =1
Front element with brackets and bolts, qty =1
Hoseclamp for brake vaccum and canister, qty =1
Fuel injectors red, qty =6
Plug for dipsticktube with clamp, qty =1
Extension hose for fuel rail, qty =1











From what I see going thru the install manual, everything I highlighted in red I am not sure I have. These notes are straight from the install manual



Now you will see 4 free bolts sitting on the frame in front of the radiator. The front heat exchanger element is installed on the two lower bolts (Pic.67). The front element comes preassembled, but you might have to loosen the bolts a little to make it fit. The two L shaped brackets are installed onto the free bolts (Pic.68 and Pic.69). Secure them with supplied ESS nuts and washers using a 13mm socket. Tighten all the bolts on the element assembly.

Install the ESS pump on the bottom part of the left inner fender. (Air filter side of the car). Hold the pump in the position shown in the picture below. Mark up where the bracket holes will be drilled (Pic.70). (Where is the bracket?)Remove the pump and drill two 6.5mm (1/4inch) holes using a drill (Pic.71). Install the pump using supplied rubber mountings, washers and nuts (Pic.72). Secure the nuts using a 10mm socket.

Locate the indicated red/white wire inside the DME box (Pic.73). Tap into the wire and connect the long red pump wire with the fuse holder


Secure the bracket using the supplied bolts (Pic.99)


Anyone care to help us out on this, it would be greatly appreciated. The oil is still in the charger, what kind of oil is it? I have two belts and the gasket that aren't pictured in case people are wondering. Chime in, I need to get this thing installed before it snows!

Thanks,

Fran

Good luck with the install man! I have the TS1, so I can't say much about the heat exchanger and such.

Hope it all gets sorted out for you. I don't know why they would forget parts when shipping to a customer. Check list FTW.

Comcast freakin sucks! One minutes the links are good next minute they are invalid. Thanks for the photodump.org link

I bought the kit second hand as it says it the first post.

what are you going to do about programming the ECU since you bought it second hand?

Oh you bought it second hand. Didn't catch that in the OP.

Good luck! It will be nice to see the install and dyno sheets later on!

Oh and use this for hosting pics http://www.imageshack.us/ it's free and never really seems to have issues.

If you are not planning to use a cherry picker, it might be a good idea to wrap the sc pulley or take it off and put it on when the assembly is in. It's very easy to bend that with the weight of the assembly. We knocked that thing against the engine bay and it bent in multiple areas. I already had a 7.0psi pulley, so the 6.5 pulley was dispensable, but if you plan to keep it, I'd be super careful.

You do need a new ESS manifold gasket for sure. That and the new belt seem to be missing.

Thanks for the advice...easy enough to take the pulley off. I do have the gasket and the belt.

I have 2 orange snap connectors with rigid plastic tubing where the 2 gold nozzles are on your TS in the 2nd picture.

I also have the gold nozzles at the EGR and actuator connectors...I think the plastic ones were from the earlier batches?

Thank you...going from memory from the instruction manual, it says they are "capped" but I obviously don't have the caps either. I would use one for a boost gauge but don't see how the other vaccum line could be for a fuel pressure regulator unless that connects to the small line coming out of the silicone sleeve in my first picture

The fuel pressure regulator vacuum/boost port MUST be connected to the fuel pressure regulator vacuum hose which is originally connected to the lower connection on the F connector attached to your your OEM throttle body->MAF plastic elbow. It is VERY important that this is connected in order to provide the correct vacuum and boost compensation to the fuel pressure. The other port is for testing/boost gauge and can be plugged if you do not need it. You can order a plug from us to replace the brass fitting (comes with new kits), or you can simply attach a plugged hose.

Asbjorn,

Could you please tell me what else is missing from my kit? I know the dipstick tube is missing and I question these parts:

Now you will see 4 free bolts sitting on the frame in front of the radiator. The front heat exchanger element is installed on the two lower bolts (Pic.67). The front element comes preassembled, but you might have to loosen the bolts a little to make it fit. The two L shaped brackets are installed onto the free bolts (Pic.68 and Pic.69). Secure them with supplied ESS nuts and washers using a 13mm socket. Tighten all the bolts on the element assembly.

Install the ESS pump on the bottom part of the left inner fender. (Air filter side of the car). Hold the pump in the position shown in the picture below. Mark up where the bracket holes will be drilled (Pic.70). (Where is the bracket?)Remove the pump and drill two 6.5mm (1/4inch) holes using a drill (Pic.71). Install the pump using supplied rubber mountings, washers and nuts (Pic.72). Secure the nuts using a 10mm socket.

Locate the indicated red/white wire inside the DME box (Pic.73). Tap into the wire and connect the long red pump wire with the fuse holder

Secure the bracket using the supplied bolts (Pic.99)

I'd like to place one order for everything I need and would like to get a spare radiator hose and gasket also. I'd really appreciate if you could review the pics which would help Elio and I finalize our transaction.

Thanks,

Fran

-There are no new dipstick tube used with this kit.
-The nuts/washers used are regular metric nuts, can be found easily at any hardware store locally, no need to pay $ to ship.
-The pump can be secured using 2 good size tie wraps, drill 4 holes in the bottom plastic cover and secure using the tie wraps through the holes. This is much easier to mount and works the same. I know Elio used this, which is why he probably forgot the included the bracket.

Looks to me like you are all set to go.
