so after installing the mounting brackets and head unit the intake pipe to the back of the blower wont slip on because it hits the valve cover any idea what the problem could be?also what is supposed to go in this hole I dont see anything obvious IMAG0306.jpgIMAG0310.jpg

IMAG0312.jpgIMAG0313.jpgit looks like id be able to get it on there if there was spacers on those bolts but if they arent supposed to have them im not gonna put them on there because I need the pulleys to line up

it looks like you could put it on if you installed it before putting the blower on. But how the hell are you routing your piping with a windstar intake?

Yes i grinded it off or else the mounting bracket wouldn't have been able to geg all the way in but I was thinking the same thing about putting it on the blower first than bolting it to the bracket

Here some pics of the kit on my car, maybe one of these will help. To give you something to compare it to.

Boost gauge can go anywhere off of the upper intake. I have mine off of the barb closest to the TB on the drivers side.

the two bungs coming off of the plastic elbow going directly into the blower, the small brass one is where my valve covers vent to, the big one is where my bypass valve re-circulates into. If you have a blow off valve it can be plugged because you are not recirculating any air.

Is there a small vacuum line going to the blow off valve? if that is what you are talking about I think it goes to anywhere on the upper intake manifold.
