Ask and you shall recieve.....
more pics please... lol
Please brace that manifold.
thats pretty dope, if i can get over to my buddies jesse's house [when he is ever home], i'll take a few pics of his turbo EG and his race car... im planning on building a turbo car in the NEAR future...
Any sugestions on how to brace it properly.I need some advice badly.
i would make good friends with a local tig welder...plan on that manifold cracking within a couple months. Seems like everyone on honda-tech that used one of those had it crack.
But as for bracing- i would have some pieces of steel welded from the lower flange to the head flange, then if at all possible make a bracket from the turbo to the stock exhaust manifold mounting bracket near the bottom of the block
good luck dude
ok im a n00b in the turbo application, but why do you need to brace the manifold? and why would it crack?
the meng/obx manifolds are notorious for cracking... possible reasons are use of cheap materials, poor construction, crappy quality control, etc... there is a reason those ss tubular manifolds are so cheap
Almost done...More pics comming soon.
that, and the weight of the turbo puts a lot of stress on the mounting bolts
Looks beautiful, good luck on the rest of the project!
so how much did all that set you back? do you think i could trade in some marlboro miles for a set up like that?
what is the blue thing in the last pic?
