Default My turbo setup (Bottom mount t25)

I guess Ill go ahead and start my turbo build thread. Im planning on running a gt2554r to start off with and upgrade to a gt2560 later. My car is a 1.6 with everything upgraded but boost. Torsen, 6puck, coilovers, cage....

I decided to go with a bottom mount manifold for my setup. Having no ac or ps makes things easier Everything was made by ARTech formally called Sprayed on the forum. Thanks again for the great work!






Heres some pics of my downpipe back exhaust.

Umm nice build but you still have an AC compressor hanging on your motor... If your AC doesnt work. Dump that Junk, Time to go light weight...

{unless those pictures are not from your car}

Anyhow , it all looks well fabbed and nice and low for that strait shot exit.

Goodluck

I have no idea why I haven't flipped my welded mixing manifold and ran a flex pipe to the radiator. I'd be able to ditch that heavy connecting pipe, and the two bolts it's held on with! Anybody know the part number or make/model/year for a hose that'll fit from a flipped MM to the radiator? If you'd like to get rid of that steel pipe, I pulled it out with vise grips, and drilled and tapped the hole for 1/8" NPT. You can put a plug in it, than a hose barb for turbo water return in the future.

Edit: NM, you already have a water cooled turbo. Could still drill and tap for an AN fitting opposed to the standard slip-joint-with-hose-clamp method.

Very nice! Sprayed is a better welder than me. Looks pretty. How much did he charge you for the manifold?

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Tim, I wouldn't say that. Your work is very nice, too.

I'm in North Dallas.

The manifold and downpipe were each $250. He got a great deal on the down pipe, because I had extra piping laying around. The next SSDP won't be as cheap. There's a lot of time and materials that go into one.

I'm not sure how yours is angled, but that's one of the stock hoses in the pic. From there it looks like you need a small 90 degree hose and a pipe to join them. The other stock hose is 90 degrees, I bet it could be trimmed to complete the loop.

WWWWhaaaaattt? Damn, 100%ss mani for $250! That's right where my raw material would be for that type of mani, according to my fancy top secret spreadsheet price list. You're gonna put me out of my hobbybusiness bitch hehe.

Your solution to the lower radiator hose fix is very slick. I may copy that, good job again.

Do you have a rad hose that fits the new water inlet neck? I'll need the hose so I can drive my car home from your shop/house.
