Default Coolant Port on Engine/Turbo outlet problem !

I've clocked my Greddy and have a 3" pipe going downwards and then over towards the radiator, around the front of the engine up into the intake.
My problem is that there is a coolant port on the engine under the exhaust manifold which comes straight out towards my new 3" pipe.
I can't fit the original silicone hose back on because the pipe is now in the way.
I suppose I could try to get a 90 degree silicone elbow but I'd say that won't fit there either as there is only about a 2" gap between the pipe and the port.
Any ideas ?
Is there any way to mod the port so-as it would point in another direction ?
Is the thing cast or what as I know a guy who would weld some type of adaptor onto it if it's steel ?

See BEGi's water by-pass system.


I also suggest you stick with smaller intake pipes.


you could mod it however you please, i believe it's aluminum however.

Is there a problem with using 3" pipes from the Turbo ?

its overly large. The TB itself is only 2.5", the turbo outlet itself is only 2"

i betcha the power/spool/throttle response difference between 2" to 3" intake pipes would be nill.
