Default Custom welded tubular manifold & turbo setup.

I've decided to part with my custom-welded tubular manifold / turbo / downpipe setup. The turbo is a AiResearch oil-cooled unit with internal wastegate, however the wastegate actuator can is not included. Downpipe is 2.25" with a captive GM-style flange. Compressor is the 57 trim .48 A/R unit. I unfortunately don't have the turbine specs handy, but it has a 53mm wheel.

Turbo not hit block, guaranteed.

Asking $450 for everything pictured.

Why are you selling this combo Joe? I'm curious if that's a 5/16" flange or if it's 3/8".

Side note-I wonder what Begi would charge to get ceramic coat it all?

impressive use of the SRT4 integrated turbine housing design. eliminates bolt failures and gasket leaks.

got a picture of the inside of the collector?

I've seen parts salvaged from spanish gallions, sunk in the 1600's, that looked just like that. A few barnacles and a bit of coral growing and you'd pretty much have it.


That's like.. Umm.... woh...
