Dont muck around!!! Go for the TD04L IHI Turbo from the WRX.

These have proven results!!! awesome for low boost setups and are ok for 200BHP+ (wheels).

You can get them for 50-90pounds well worth the money. Wink

for low boost you dont need injectors or an ecu andy/garndi does a chip for the stock ecu that will run fine 10-11psi on stock injectors youll make about 150whp on stock internals for more power a ecu and injectors are needed plus lots more when your ready to start buying stuff pm me or him or start a thread

In reagards to the turbo manifold you can use a manifold from another 4 cylinder turbo and get a custom conversion plate made by ferriday engineering. Good for a budget build

Hi,

You can get frange laser cut for 40 with 10mm steel plate.
Buy weldin bends for 65.

If you can weld, you can make log type one for less than 150.

I'm making one for myself and I have all the parts.
I have been talking to DMWDave so I know what I need to do.

Cheers
Atchi

Hi Steve,

It is my local laser cut place.
They will cut from 8mm Stainless steel for that price.
If you want some, let me know. I made one for Dominator before.

Cheers

Hi Steve,

Yeah, no space what so ever!

You can see from this photo here.


I got TD04 and hoping to make one log style manifold to fit may be above gearbox.
I got an engine block ready for forced setup with Vitara pistons, o-ringed at Jerry's house.

What port size do you want with it 35mm or bigger?
If you want in mild steel, let me know. I got 1 spare.. oh I got 1 stainless spare also.

Cheers
Atchi

Hi Steve,

I do all of my CAD work myself and get it laser cut.
I have down pipe flange already but I made it too big so I might have to re-draw it again.
I'm not sure where to fit my turbo yet so I will make sealed log complete then I cut where I want to fit by cutting and welding a flange to it to the manifold.

I will check what bore I got as I made bore bigger to fit tube into it before.

Cheers
Atchi

Hi,

It is about 6mm thickness tube for a turbo manifold.
You have to remember any thinner than that, you will be getting cracks.
This is pm from DMWDave when I contacted him before!

Hi,
I have seen a log style manifold mounting turbo over gearbox,
I normally follow rule of thumb using whatever size exhaust port is for the tubeing size.But with a log style as each cylinder runner joins the main pipe it should step up in diameter,so you may start with a 11/4" at the water pump end but end up with a 13/4" at the turbo flange end,if if you dont step up then all your exhaust gas has to escape through a 11/4" pipe !!which may be restrictive.Step up from cylinder 3 to 11/2" then cyl 4 13/4",1&2 being 11/4".

If you make the manifold out of that thin wall exhaust tubeing it will crack,go to a a thickwall(4mm)either in mild steel or better still stainless,most places call them weldels,a good metal fabrication supplier will have them,they are 90 degree preformed bends available in 1/4" step up sizes.

This is the site you can buy it from .

http://www.pipesupply.co.uk/epages/es113396.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/es113396_shop/Categories

Std wt will be fine for mild steel.
I haven't tried to make one with Stainless steel type.

Cheers
Atchi

wow a great site atchi just for anyone who is going to ask look below this is why i dident go ahaed witht the manifolds i couldent find the bends cheap enought it was like 12 and 14 a bend which when you think about 5 or 6 depending on design plus laser cutting plus time soon amounts up

11/4" diameter of pipe
sch 10 gauge of pipe
90 degrees the bend
