The FP68HTA is one of the most popular turbos available for the WRX/STi/LGT right now.
If you are planning on installing one in a 2007+ LGT there is a small fitment issue that needs to be corrected before install.
I will walk you through.
On the 2007+ LGT's there is the infamous air pump system. A secondary solonoid and atmospheric pressure sensor reside on the passenger side of the motor under the manifold. It is the first pic.
If you install the 68HTA it will hit the electrical connector and not allow installation of the coupler. There are ways to force it, but it causes pic 2, 3 and 4. Crushed electrical connector (and a hole in the coupler too).
So, lets walk through how to properly clock a FP68HTA so that it can be installed without hitting the sensor.
The FP68HTA from my car.
First, remove the wastegate actuator. 1 c-clip and two 10mm bolts.
Next remove the band clamp.
With the band clamp removed you can separate the two halves of the turbo. They pull apart very easily.
