I just got my SS elbow i ordered late last week.
Man i thought this thing mighta been hokey for being a cast unit. But shit this thing is quality.
I hope it helps with loosing boost in the top end.

Im gonna try and install it tonight and take her for a ride and see how she feels.

Big props to Supra Store for great service and an awesome looking part :bigthumb:

LOL

i could have told you that. I saw the elbows at thier place up here in Stillwater, MN.

It might be cast but it is top notch.

lol. Sorry , i was just suprised of the quality. I thought it would look like stock with just a ported opening.
I didnt see any pics of it on here. So maybe for future searches Ill post one later.
I hope this thing makes a nice diff.
I am going to cut the flex pipe from my HKS dp and make a new full 3inch section to get rid of that bottleneck too.

What do you think the gearing would be like, using a turbo elbow for a differential? Were you going to make some kind of adapters to attach it to the drive shaft and axles? Would it act like a locked diff, or like an open one?

becuase there was already a DP on the car when I got it. Why change it out if I already have one and can modify it for much less. $10 in parts and a few mins on a welder and my DP is more than sufficient.
Plus my Wideband sensor is stripped a little and I dont wanna have to replace the sensor too to replace the DP becuase the threads got jacked.

Plus the 2 piece design is a little easier for removal and such

For search purposes here is the diff between stock and the SS

My thoughts on it. It didnt help the boost hold too much on the top end, But it deff feels like it has more umph. Raised the boost a bit too
