Need info for turbo install

I just bought a new turbo. It is a turbonetics but it didn't come with the pedestal o-rings. Who sells them other than ford? They want 9 bucks a piece for them. Also, isn't there supposed to be a gasket on the exhaust side? I am doing this install for the first time myself. Any helpful hints would be appreciated. Thanks Darren

No gaskets on the exhaust side, they are V clamps. If your not leaking and want to risk it just reuse the old o rings... I have done it many times... Turbo installs are a piece of cake, just get some good Pen fluid and hose everything down good.

Did you get the turbo from me? If you did, you'll have new o rings Tuesday morning, or buy them from the dealer and I'll refund you what you had to pay. Let me know-thanks

Get them at International if you can they have a whole kit for less than ten bucks IIRC.
The kit has 4 O-rings and does both sides of the pedestal.

Yeah, I did order it from you. I already ordered the o-rings but I'm sure I can send them back or find someone else that needs them. I want to replace both the upper and lower so I ordered two sets (I was just guessing that they are the same size for upper and lower) Am I right about that? If so I will send back one set, if not, I'll pay the Ford dealer for the lower ones.
Thanks again Black Widow Diesel That is what I call great customer service! :Thumbup:
