A few pictures of a forum members " turbo kit " about to be finished.



Hardlined water/oil lines as hes going to autoX this car, and doesn't want a SS lined rubber hose to fail in such close vicinity to the turbine housing.











We just have to finish it off with some TFE hose, make some mounting tabs for the lines, brace the turbo, and coat his downpipe and turbine housing.

That is neat. What kind of tube is that. What was the cost to build?

Just -4 and -6 SS tubing, I believe it was .039" wall. Its time consuming thats where the cost really comes from, that and having the right tools.

I'll be damned I had no idea you worked at turblown.. That is some sweet hard line work, I thought of doing that but we don't have anyone in town that does it. The waste gate in that pic looks like the one I sent to you guys to size up the manifold you guys are making for me.

Chris,



I had no idea you were on the forums. I would have posted a bunch of pictures of your manifold. I guess tommorrow I will do that, I've also got to email you some more new ones...

Why is he so paranoid? Just about every single turbo guy runs your typical braided SS rubber line with no problems...

Hes not. However I've personally seen those lines fail on many race cars right before my eyes.
