Elbow Flange coming from VAM

I need the flange that I saw someone made and was selling that lets me rotate the elbow that bolts to the turbo coming from the VAM so that the elbow is pointing towards the VAM rather than down and away. Where can I get it?

Thanks C-Rock

Turbo to Manifold

I had my turbo off getting it rebuilt and now have everything all back on. It slipped my mind to use a new turbo to manifold metal gasket is that a big deal or will I want to take it off and replace it?

Re: Turbo coupe intercooler: Big stupid hood scoop?

Exactly on the getting hot. If anyone has seen the glowing red hot turbo they would kind of go " "Huh" I'll bet that IC never gets cold I don't think there is any amount of air you can run past that turbo coupe IC and have it ever get cold with a turbo as hot as the sun sitting under it.

Re: Turbo coupe intercooler: Big stupid hood scoop?

Also the RS 500 vents have a front lip on them and this causes a vortex and this suck's air up and out of the engine bay. Under the hood with the turbo is a very hot place and moving air through the rad and out of the engine bay kept the engine running cooler. If you get a chance to look at the Ford...

Re: Turbo coupe intercooler: Big stupid hood scoop?

No one ever takes into consideration the over all shape of the car when doing this. I forget what the co-effient drag of the car is but I remember it being a very low number. Just because you add a big air scoop to the car does not mean air is going to go through it. If air does not flow out the bot...

Re: new intercooler want some opinions

To much work to install it for the return, heat soak water tank and if it leaks good for the strip bad idea and to complex over a Air to Air. There are so many options from Mike at Merkur Depot with his plug and play set up. Stop trying to re invent the wheel go with what is proven.

Re: Boost Leak lawn chair and a massive bump

I had made up a set up with a pressure gauge and it worked well and we have some leaks and will be getting them ironed out. I will also do this on my 89 red car. This is something I would suggest everyone do I was surprised at the leaks.

Re: Boost Leak lawn chair and a massive bump

I agree it will bleed past the rings but it will give me some time to find the leaks and should hold the 20 lbs for a while,right?

Boost Leak lawn chair and a massive bump

We have a boost leak and it's a little tough to find while driving and putting the car under load. I took a lawn chair and some duck tape and I strapped my son in law to the front of the car and took it for spin. Duck tape did not hold well and he fell off. So after some road rash and a massive bump...
