Default Damn Dsm Turbo

I am about to kick myself in the face for making the decision to use this POS DSM 13g turbo.. I have been racking my brain and searching like mad to find out what size the coolant inlets are, and what im going to use to connect them to the miata cooling system.. I decided i wanted to use the stock coolant lines and banjo bolts, and then connect them to rubber hoses in line with the heater core. well the factory coolant lines are impossible to find, unless i want to spend 50 bucks on new ones.. im about ready to drill them out and tap them to an american size... Can someone please shoot me and put me out of my misery. I knew i should have just baught a damn T4!

GT3271 = 650 dollars.....


And it gets you a 400whp capable turbo that spools from 3500-4500rpm ( full boost ).

Don't forget the $200 Ghettocharger.

You should just run it without coolant. It's not going to hurt it any if you have synthetic oil, get the turbo on, enjoy the car, and source your coolant bits while you enjoy the new turbo. If you're really worried, idle the car for a few seconds when you stop before you shut it off.

no banjo bolts needed bradley just get some more heater hose of the right size and use a few barb fittings, and a metric to barb adapter comming of the turbo this is how i was gonna do it. So it is realy pretty simple just splice in there the pressure isnt very high 14psi max probably and the flow probably isnt that much either. You do know that you do not have to use the coolant ports right, i ran mine just fine through the summer heat and, no problems. Just a suggestion.
