    Yeah, pretty much this.

    If it gets defected, Honest Ahmed's Automotives will clear the defects over the phone for you.

    Shed Project: 1994 Laser Lynx with BP-T

    Comment


      Following RX3's sweet cressida build, but always wondered about turbo outlets- he's had to make the piping to the intercooler curve around and go forward



      are there any turbo's for sale that have the cold side outlet curved forward? like more parallel to the intake. for tighter engine bays

        Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

          same, and i assume there is an engineering reason as for why- because everyone has to immediately turn it 90 degrees forward right off the end of the outlet anyway

              Yeah, a lot of VWs have at least one pipe at 90deg to the inlet or outlet of the turbo, at close proximity.

              Sure, there could be gains if it was packaged differently, but it might be dearer, or take longer to assemble on the production line. A lot of their plumbing, be it for forced induction, cooling, etc, hugs the engine and gearbag pretty tight so the body can be dropped over the running gear without snagging. Plus most of it is all quick-release fittings at the intercooler, radiator, etc.

                  Garret released their reverse rotation at the start of 2017 I think...google images is showing a few mounted up on cars

                    These are aftermarket turbos to suit the 3.5 ecoboost.

                      If I purchase a brand new vehicle and check the heavy tow kit option, does this get defined as a modified vehicle under insurance? Or is this at the insurance company's discretion as to deem what is modified or not?

                      Cheers

                        It's an accessory.

                          First attempt was a lot better transition,





                          But after bolting everything down it didn't fit.

                          What I did was about the best case I could come up with until I wanted to throw a hammer at it. I really wanted to rotate the comp. cover about 90 degrees counter clockwise but it hit against the number 1 cylinder runner on the exhaust manifold and also the water outlet housing on the cylinder head.

                          I think there comes a point in a build where you just say fuck it, that'll do - nothing more boost wont fix. That damn bend off the housing was a pain to weld too.

                          Thanks for posting about it - glad someone's taken an interest in it.

                              I will see how it goes.

                              There is a bit of slop with the joiners, you can spin them around on the flange which is a bit annoying as it is something that will rattle and move. I might use some aluminium tape , on the outside of the flange and then put the joiners over it, to stop them moving if it rattles too much but I really don't know how much I will hear inside with a 4" exhaust. They couplers have 2 rubber o-rings and there is a silicon joiner connecting the pipe to the inlet and outlet of the intercooler.

                              If it rattles around I will change to the plazmaman joiner or wiggins but they are pretty expensive in comparison to what I have now.

                                So you wouldn't recommend the cheaper v clamps then?
