It doesn't take that long to find a new contract MFG and re-tool ... So I wonder whats really going on!

And re-tooling should not have to be done if they have proper control of their contract MFG...

Every contract MFG I've dealt with I've always owned the tooling, that way when I (or they) decide to tell them to pack it in their mud hole I don't loose the tooling, this is standard practice.

However, It sounds like maybe they were buying parts from a SUPPLIER not a contract MFG, If thats the case then the parts could be available from another avenue, finding that avenue could be difficult though.

-Enjoy

Just read through my "installation instructions" that ATS sent me.. All they are saying is "There are 5, 5/16 twelve point bolts".. They're not Metric so they gotta be 5/16 x 18 or 5/16 x 24 if memory serves me correctly (18 course thread and 24 fine thread). When all my stuff was put on it was a great advantage to give the bolts a good soaking in WD-40 or the equivelant before attempting to remove them. To me that was just a great excuse to get rid of some beer..

What makes me wonder is why ATS offers an upgrade kit when they should of made it right to begin with.

Another thread from the dead.

as far as this upgrade talk goes..... what does the upgrade kit go to the ats kit that you can buy or the ford one that came with the truck?

from my limited knowledge with the turbo setup, they are the same thing except ford used a different down pipe for the stock ford setup. The upgrade kit should bolt to both.

goes from a tiny 2.25" outlet elbow and squashed 2.25" pipe to the large 3" housing outlet elbow and mandrel 3" down pipe.

I'm pretty certain the upgrade kit is only useful for the Ford factory turbo that came with the squashed downpipe and 2.25" outlet. For whatever stupid reasons Ford neutered the ATS design.
The ATS aftermarket turbo came from ATS with the 3" outlet and a full sized 3" downpipe. So there is no point in getting the upgrade if you have the ATS aftermarket setup.
