You have a 4.0? I didn't know that On3 made a kit for the 4.0. Or are you modifying a 4.6 kit to fit?


Now with twin turbo 3.5LV6.

Little bit of an update. I mocked up the on3 kit, itll bolt right in. Very few modifications needed. First major problem is the lower radiator hose is in the way. Other than that and adding an 02 bung for the driver side 02 sensor shouldnt have any problems. Ive received my gauges just waiting on an afr gauge and injectors. After that its just small bits and pieces. Whats the best plug tho run in the boosted 4.0s? Anyone got a part number.

Some pics of piping before I removed the system (when I first bought the car, I pulled the engine, so these were as things were being taken apart).

I now use a singe 3" outlet into a 3" high-flow cat converter out to dual 2-1/2 pipes. The original kit had the 3"-to-dual-2.5" Y split, but only one side was connected to the exhaust piping!













For oil drain-back from the turbo, I tapped into the boss in the lower block cradle above the oil pan and am using a -8an braided line from the turbo unit; the stock kit had you drill/tap into the timing cover, like many f/i kits do. I didn't like doing that here.


In the pic is that a metalpipe to reroute the coolant line? If so what size is the pipe?

Yeah, the coolant line is rerouted through a 1-1/2"-2" metal pipe (sorry, don't know the exact size, but it is the same size as the stock hose, probably closer to 1-1/2").

For upstream O2 sensors, get them close to the exhaust manifolds. Wideband can be after both sides join up, although I put mine right past the passenger side front sensor, as it was the best location for my needs. (the pics above were with the sensors installed in original locations when I bought the car; the wideband relocated to near the passenger front sensor is not shown.)

Spark plugs are are easy: NGK TR6: they are 1 heat range colder than stock. Mine are gapped at .032" I think.

Okay. And i have a wideband bung in the downpipe. But since this is a gt kit they have the first 02 sensor on the drivers side in the manifold so ill have to add one on thay side

This is what the coolant tube looks like in the PH kit. The lower radiator hose gets the ends cut off (several inches both ends) and the tube is attached. The tube also has a smaller tube(1" dia I think) tee'd off of it for the hose that goes to the overflow tank.

Make one. I recall during my install that the one end that is cut on the "bend", didn't really need to be, so you could get away with just a 90 degree stainless tube, the correct diameter, cut to the correct lengths and then you would need to drill and weld in the smaller tube for the hose that goes to the overflow tank. You will need a longer hose for that as the stock one will no longer be long enough to make it to the tank.

Well, another option would be to go to your local auto parts store(s) and look for a radiator hose, in the correct diameter, with the right shape and lengths, that could be modified to work? could get lucky? For the PH kit I bought used, I did not get the overflow coolant hose. I went to the local Carquest and found a hose made for an early 90s Honda accord and it fit like it was made for it.

Good luck.
