Default V-banded downpipe on internal WG T3

I have a 1990 Miata 1.6 turbo with a t3 internal wastegate and a badly fabbed downpipe that I want to convert to a v-band. The current 2.5 inch downpipe is welded right to the internal wastegate housing so it fits with about an inch to spare to the firewall. I'm wondering how to best construct the v-banded downpipe to fit? Should I use a v-banded elbow or just weld the v-band flange to a 90 degree piece of pipe?

In a recent thread DRIVERX said he had a v-banded downpipe on T3. I would have pm'ed him but I am a noob.

Any tips or pics would be appreciated thanks.

Are you basically looking for something like this??? http://www.atpturbo.com/mm5/merchant..._Code=ATP-FLS1 That fits your specific application of course... This would cover your turbine side, but you could just buy a V-band flange and then custom fab a downpipe from there. Good luck.

Last year saw him rise to 36th on the order of merit with six top ten finishes with the golf clubs for sale online (the best a runners up spot at the Omega European Masters) including four in his last six starts. The Accenture Match Play was his debut on the PGA Tour on American soil. ishiner
