TD04 turbo inlet pipe.

Post by Thesubielover »

I need some ideas. I am ready to do my swap, but cant decide which way to go. Am I able to just use a samco 90 with t clamps?

Thanks a lot, open to all ideas.

The metal one wouldn't work, but that second one might work.

This is my TD04 setup, the aluminum piping is Spectre Performance with a 90 degree reducer silicone to the turbo.

Both tubes are 3" in diameter and the straight is 4" in length and the 90 is just the mandrel bent one not the welded one you had shown. But I believe that the Silicone reducer is 3-2.25" and the black silicone is a flex hose that allows i think 20 degrees of movement.

What did you do with your f pipe and the other plastic pipe with one whole out to two? I just extended to crank case one, so its about 6 in tall vs 1in haha. I like the idea of having that black silicone piece. Where did you get the mandrel bend from? i have a resenator delete in the making, so ill pass on the 4in straight pipe, but id like to hear more about the rest of your set up.
