No this is NOT a "my turbo has blown up and sucked pieces inside my motor" thread. This is just me having some slight...issues with my diy project. I have the fm oldskool manifold and now the begi-s downpipe. Now to the issues:
1) The oil drain flange that I bought off ebay(listed for Garrett t25's and t28's) fit my sr20 t25 but not this egay T28. The flange was the same size but the bolt holes were a couple mm's off(inside wise). So honestly, I just drilled the hole out bigger and put a bunch of rtv on the seal. Should this work? I would think so since it is still flush on the surface....hmm...
2) My begi-s downpipe's flange doesn't fit. It mates up to the turbo perfectly but the holes are just slightly off. I even tried the flange on my sr20 t25 and it doesn't even fit that either. What the hell is that about? The turbo I bought has a flange that comes with it but it's made out of a thicker(exhaust housing type) material. Should this still be weldable? I'm just thinking about cutting it off at the flange and having it put on the new one. If that flange isn't weldable then I'm clueless about where to get another one(what turbo this is copying).
3) Last is regarding the garrett inlet oil fitting I got from Begi. It screws in the turbo just fine. It actually fits my 4an line, well kind of. My oil line I bought(used) has some sort of small restrictor looking thing where it connects to the fitting. The restrictor is so long I can't screw the fitting on. I took a dremmel and filed down the top of the inlet fitting and I was able to get a couple turns out of the line. Should I still try and use a pop rivet fitting or will whatever is inside this line suffice?
4) Just a question, where can I get the piece that will connect my tunertoys or whatever it's called oil supply fitting to my 4an oil line?
I'll be home in about 2 hours and will take some pictures of what I'm talking about with the exhaust housing piece and the thing inside the oil fitting.
