Turbo lines

Post by Tommio RS »

Hi there. I have a question about the vacuum lines the run on the turbo.

There are two

One goes to the WG then the other one T's to the nipple on the comp. housing.

I swapped out my stock VF11 for a fatty GT28 and does not have the nipple on the turbo comp.

Where can i put that other line?? Any place the can get boost from?

Thanks!

It should be as close to the turbo compressor outlet as you can get it.

Ok. So just get that line as close to the turbo outlet as possiable.

So what if i were to plumb it into my intercooler. I have two remaining holes in my cooler that i can easily use.
Not to mention that they are threaded! WHOOT!!

If you think that is close enough i will just thread in the right brass fitting and be done with it.

BTW!! the intercooler is top mounted air to water cooler.

Or does it have to be before the recirculator valve?

It should be closer IMO, but if the intercooler is all you have, then that's what you'll have to do.

Thanks for the quick reply. I think i got a better place for it now. I have a120 degree pipe that i can tap into and stick a barb into it right at the turbo outlet.

I think it would work the best and look better there aswell.


Thanks!
