For those of you running a 5"inlet compressor cover can you tell me if you welded an elbow on or how you did your intercooler piping. If possible please post pics.
No prob man, just ends up helping somone else. What manifold is that?Sorry forgot you said greddy manifold. This isnt a greddy
Thanks for the pic. Did you ever consider just running a 1/2" spacer instead of going through all that work. That would make it clear a lot easier.GT4294 on a Greddy manifold. I had to cut the v-band off and weld an elbow to use a coupler. Even doing it this way the first runner is very close to the compressor housing. I plan to cut and reweld the first runner when I change my setup.
This is the only picture that I have...
If its artbran I should have some pictures on my office computer. I rebuilt his turbo not so long agowhat kirk did is EXACTLY what we did and what i explained in my post, except that where he welded the 45 elbow onto the compressor outlet, we welded a vband. then, essentially we used the 45 that he welded onto his and welded a vband to that. we had to do that because i didnt have the space between the frame rail and the IC pipping to position the vband there. i thought i had pics of it on my computer but i cannot find them. and the guy whos car it is is on his honeymoon and wont be back for over a week.
