It's a shop run by an old guy and his son. 2 workers only. Know some guys into diesel trucks around here and they are almost legendary around here. Guess they spend all there time working on turbos and no time cleaning them up. It was pretty crazy though. Some of those holsets are freaking massive.

Time for water lines. I assume normal heater lines will be fine for now? I found some m12x1.5 (which I think is what my coolant lines are) to 5/16ths hose barb which matches my coolant feed lines.

Anything wrong with that?

Currently looking at 3 options:

1) Turbo Water Pipe Kit M12x1 5mm Volvo Saab TD04H 15T 19T Fit 1 2" Plug Hose | eBay

Get that and find a way to make the half-inch hose reduce to the 5/16ths I have on the inlet manifold now.

2) 2 of
these these
plus 2 1/8th inch NPT to 5/16th hose barb. Or 2 of http://www.ebay.com/itm/Speedflow-5-16-8mm-Barb-to-Metric-M12-x-1-5-Push-On-Hose-Fitting-414-M12-05-/140986097775?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item20d36d206f&vxp=mtr: if I can find any that would get here before January

3) Get all fancy and run AN lines using the same AN banjo bolt I am using for my oil lines. I can run AN to NPT on my mixing manifold. So my only issue would be an AN source somewhere on the Intake manifold side. Any ideas?

Suggestions?

Wow M12x1.5 to 5/16 is not easy to find...

I finally found something that I think will work well.

Will this provide enough coolant flow?

Also finished rebuilding my turbo today. The guys at Bell Turbo did an awesome job and helped me out to no end. This thing looks like new.

I think most people, me included, use m12x1.5 to AN adapters.

You can also skip the water cooling for now and figure it out later. It's not necessary on a water cooled turbo to actually water cool it.

Nope, not unless you only have one side hooked up. It's just a cavity that fills with water and spits out the other side. As far as I know, it can be run permenately without water, however it would be benificial to eventually hook it up.

Awesome. Thanks for the info. I'll run no water until I can get the AN thing figured out.

Going to start building the manifold tomorrow. Plan is to do a low mount flowish log. I've been mocking it up in solidworks and I think it should work well.

Also in other news:



Wooo, safety first.

That's already a bit sloppy on the side for the 2nd pipe. Get the gap as close as possible before welding.

I've got some more cleaning up to do. Its 1.25 pipe, and really doesn't cover the flange well enough. I'm probably going to end up with some gussets/patches.

Makes sense why this **** is expensive from Abe/FM/etc. Its ****** hard. But fun. 2 days down and way too much time spent driving to the parts store. But the collector is done for now.
