Turbo offset intake

Going to give this a try. Not much clearance between the turbo and the secondary. Used two seals on the compressor end. Seems to make a good seal, it feels like it migrates in not out. Thoughts guys?

Re: Turbo offset intake

Just be careful with the assembly of the seals on the compressor inlet. I have seen them wiggle out of the correct position during assembly and then get sucked into the compressor wheel. That will ruin a turbo in a hurry.

Not enough room to weld a tight 90 to the inlet? It does look tight...

Here are a few pictures from a Turbo Charged quad that I worked on. I actually cut the compressor inlet down in a lathe and then welded on a tight 90.

We just found a 1 3/4" radiator hose at the auto parts store that had a tight 90 deg turn in it and cut it down to fit and it works fine. Yours looks a lot tricker than ours does though. We have an increaser hose in line to go up to a 2 1/2" air filter.

Re: Turbo offset intake

Thanks for the info guys.
mhallman,
I am going to look for a tight aluminum 90. Vibrant sells a 2". Where did you find it, is it a 1 3/4"? It looks like a cast aluminum.
Pilot,
Jeff had a 3 1/2" filter on the buggy with an aluminum step reducer we are going to use.

I got that one a few years ago from spearco intercoolers who has been purchased by Turbonetics. I checked their website and was not able to find one. I did find the ones that Vibrant sells and they look to be the same thing that I purchased years ago. The one that I have is 2 inch O.D. The 2 inch would probably work, the turbo that we put it on was a garret GT12 which is quite tiny. I bet it would be fine if you cut off you intake flange for the inlet, but if you can by a radiator hose or slilcone tight 90 that would probably be a little bit easier...

Re: Turbo offset intake

Marc,
Thanks for the reply. I ordered a 2" Vibrant this morning. Will see how it fits. Dismantled the car this morning and Jeff is painting as I type. Hope to have it running soon. Waiting for Red Rock or Wasteland to reply about reprogramming the ECU for the turbo application.

Frank, the part number radiator hose that we use is 20475 Gates. It has a real tight 90 deg that we shorten and hook to the 1 3/4" turbo inlet. Its long enough to go up or to the back of the car. We use a silicone 1 3/4" to 2 1/2" out of our air filter.
