How high is it from the base to the lower bolt holes?

Kevin, it is 4 and 3/4" from the block surface to the centerline of the lower bolt holes. Also it is 2 and 1/2 inches from the centerline of the rear pedestal mount holes to the flange surface. ;) Would you happen to have the same measurements for a standard H2e mount for comparison?

So the flange mount is taller and slightly forward of an H2e kit mounting flange. It should be close to 2 and 3/4" taller and 1/2" forward.

If you want any other measurements feel free to ask!

No those are what I was looking for. I'll look tomorrow at the H2E mount I have at the shop. Does it come with down pipe?

I bought the mount only kit Kevin, it comes with everything in my pictures, so no downpipe.

I think the turbo mounting location is very close to what you have now.

If that mount moves it toward the front of the engine you may have a problem with the down pipe hitting the head. If it's any more than 2 1/2" or 2 3/4" higher you will need a BFH to get it to fit.

I just went out and did some quickie measurements on my truck, I don't think I'll have to touch the firewall too much, if any. I do have an OBS though, so I can't say for the Super Duties, my Dad's truck isn't here for me to measure.

I have an idea for the dp, when I had the H2e kit I stuck it on my spare motor and mounted the S4 on one of the top studs and did some measuring and that is very close to where it will sit with the TN mount. ;)

Are the mounting bolts between turbine and pedistal a PITA to get in? My setup is like that almost exactly except mine is fabricated instead of cast. I used a y off a obs for the up pipes. Anyway, the bolts were a sob to get to. I could not bolt turbo up and still get it in in one piece.

If they found a better way thank god!

On my setup the bottom nuts look easy, lots of room on the bottom to get a hand in there. The top shouldn't be too bad, upper driver's will be the
hardest.

I'm going to try to mount the turbine housing first and then slide the rest of the turbo on together. We shall see how it works.

That is how my GT42 has to go in. Mount the turbine housing and get the bolts tight. Then slide the center section and compressor on. This t-4 flanged charger is easier to get in and out than the stocker was. :D

I am sure you know the sore ribs then.:mad:

I need a lift and then I'll just pull the cab for everything.

That is why I bought a topside creeper :D Got tired of laying accross my engine to work on it. Only downside is the weight bracket gets in the way when it is installed.
