JDL UEL Turbo Kit - Garrett Turbo
Posted by Voidn0ise on 21st Apr 2017
My first review was rather short so I decided to provide a better one.
First of all, the kit is extremely high quality. Everything fit great and the thermal coating was perfect without a scratch. The packaging was also great, however it was shipped with Fedex and don't get me started with how useless they are.
The blow off sounds amazing and I encourage you to watch their video for it. In person it's way better although I haven't been able to experience it at more than 3.5k RPM due to tune delivery conflicts.
My only issue was the lack of instruction and documentation provided, but even so the install only took me 1.5 days and it was my first FI install (and on jackstands lol). I used a mix between JDL's Turbo Manual for their old kit, the Greddy manual, and a few others along with Youtube.
If you plan on ordering, expect at least 5 or more weeks until it ships, and then another week after that to arrive. The product arrived in two boxes coming out to 120 total I believe it was. Also, the stock front bumper bar will require modification so if you have the money I encourage you to buy the JDL Bumper Bar like I did.
The wait is worth it, everything is made to order and again, super high quality. Also the blacked out inter cooler looks pretty sweet under the front grill.

*Your kit was one of the first kits in the first group to be produced for the new design - longer lead times are expected on a new product release. Typical lead time is 3 weeks and as production gets smoother JDL will get better at hitting these marks, but with anything custom it will take time especially when there is high demand and on a first run.
**Documentation has and now is being provided with each and every kit.
Thanks for the honest feedback

Pretty easy install, quality product with great looking thermal coating. UEL sounds great as well with my Invidia N1 and Tomei OP.

With a recirculated waste gate you will notice slightly slower spool up times compared to open waste gate.

What do I need in order to run this kit?
- If you are running 91 fuel you will not need to upgrade anything other then a 3-4 Bar MAP bar sensor. You can use your stock injectors and stock fuel pump.
What if I am running E85?
- If you are running E85 you will need to upgrade your fuel injectors + Fuel pump.
What else do I need to purchase with this kit?
- This kit is pretty complete other then a 3 or 4 bar MAP sensor. Since the intercooler does run through the front you will need to either:
A. Trim your front crash bar.
B. Purchase a drift style crash bar.
