I think these are from down under as the truck is on Gumtree: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/mooloolah-valley/engine-engine-parts-transmission/rodaeo-jackaroo-turbo-diesel/1091936211

Looks like a factory turbo manifold.

I've not updated for a while. Looks like we have a new conversion to showcase. This is the first conversion of a stock exhaust manifold to accept a turbo by cutting off the bottom of the manifold and welding on a turbocharger flange. This sample comes from robgt22 working on his Passport - aka Rodeo.

Chosen was the factory turbocharger orientation with the exhaust exiting the front of the turbo and a turbo with a three bolt flange. Included is a video of the truck running and driving.

So, for everyone trying to size a Turbo for a diesel engine, I found this gem of knowledge on the Mighty Car Mods youtube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ligKWQzUg3U

Listen around minute #4.

Al is in Australia and goes by the name"Turbo Yoda" on facebook. I found him though watching Mighty Car Mods when they had some turbo gas projects. In the video above he is converting a Nissan Patrol from gas to diesel and provided his 2 cents on turbo sizing. When I wrote him on facebook he advised the following:

Turbo Yoda: An RHF4 or TFO35 would be appropriate for that engine but I don’t know where you could source one in the US. I would get on mambatek.com and search there.

I know others are looking for options. Just thought I would share and see what others on the forum might know.

I have done 5 turbo instals in the C223:

A T3 from a 300SD(Too much black smoke, was just a learning experience...), a GT1549, A GT1544S (AR25 turbine, too small of a turbine, too much backpressure: I blew up a few head gaskets...), and 2 units of GT1749V (VNT turbo) one from a TDI and one fron the ones that goes in the Renault Laguna.

Out all 5, the ones I like the most are the GT1549 (Works great) and the GT1749V the same that goes in the TDI.

The problem with the VNT turbo is that is hard to setup right. You need to set up the controller in the right setting and you will get stuck vanes here and there, (I did, so to me that is an issue).

Right now I have the GT1549 but I may go back to the VNT, we will see...

Here are some pictures:
