Turbo elbow to intake elbow?

Post by 208ss » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:03 pm

So I did a smoke test on my car a work and found out the the guy i bought the car from did not hook up the two elbows from intake to turbo. I know the intake elbow is smaller diameter than the one going to the turbo (td04L).
what are my options of hooking the two together?

I grabbed a short length of steel exhaust pipe from AutoZone, and cut and deburred the appropriate length

figured it out just bought a 2.4" into 2" elbow and using a 2" pipe to connect the two tubes.

Nice! For future searchers, what parts specifically did you use?

and went to home depot and got a 2" copper pipe and cut to length.
but this elbow will not work with the stock turbo for the 91 legacy. It will work with the td04
