Rod, What are you trying to accomplish with this ? If you want to be like Lane, flip the turbo 180 degrees & re route the water lines. Why go all the way round ? Or do like I did & cut thru the tank cover, it's not sacred or anything.
you need a plumber??I got some ideas about hoe to use this with the trask set up.
Going to run the charge tube to the front and around to the other side.
Reroute the horn to new location and I now have room for the charge tube to the plenum.
60mmare you still using the 60mm or a 63.5mm?
was kinda tossing this idea around for the SC so I could get better air to it no go opened up the fake intakes for now if I find a junk air box cover may mess with putting a scoop on it some howRod, Here's the shots showing the cut out for the charge tube. Not a big deal & still plenty stiff because of the dual forming. I believe an intercooler on the GT25 is a waste of effort unless you are running over 12 lbs continuously. I feel that the larger ( 2" ) tube along with the larger radius 90 degree moved farther away from the outlet will give the biggest improvement. Per Garrett, this unit will support about 270 crank HP, so I have a way to go yet. For me, function takes precedence over form. I'd still like to see a smoked, thermoformed polycarbonate lid, but cams & headwork are my next big project.
The intake is for 2 inch hose so the bores going to be about .160 inch less.Fabulous piece. Ever notice that turbo plenums have always tended to be round and superchargers typically are flattened ? Must be a carryover from our conceptions on cars. I understand now your references to ceiling height & reversion. For everyones benefit, what is the intake bore size and inlet ID? I upped my turbo unit to 2" because it appeared that the back pressure from such a long, narrow charge tube could be choking the turbine on the exhaust side.
