Re: Manifold Flamge

Postby ronster » Wed Jan 14, 2015 12:58 pm

I've thought about creating a new thread with the goal of assembling pictures of the different turbo installations people have created for their N/A vehicles. For a minute people started doing this when talking about "RAM Air" ideas. I bring it up here for two reasons. One, I am curious what people have tried (plumbing routing, manifold options, turbo locations, etc). Two, the fact that those utilizing this manifold flange could relocate the normal inlet location to the intake manifold which opens some doors - especially for those that look at options other than a top mount intercooler.

Attached is a picture of a turbo conversion that caught my attention for two reasons. One, simplicity. Two, cleanliness. The down side of this is the lack of an intercooler and the fact that it conflicts with those who have stock location power steering. Right now I am very curious what the stock turbo set-up looks like. All pictures that I have seen have been obscured by the intercooler.

In addition to front mount intercooler locations I have been looking at side mount intercooler options (aka Volkswagon GTI and TDI vehicles). I started thinking along this line as junkyard and used side mount intercoolers are rather inexpensive and easy to find. I also wonder if plumbing an intercooler to the driver's side wheel well might be easier for those struggling for plumbing space in the front and for those who are not interested in more holes in the radiator brace.

Any thoughts, as it relates to creating a new thread, and the usage of this manifold flange.

P.S. I currently do not own a turbo, but am doing research. I am also not a welder so purchasing the flange then leads to other gymnastics, thus the kit option is extremely appealing.

This setup is very clean! The only problem is you have to frankinstein what you have to make it work and sometimes I doesn't come out looking very clean or nice and turns into a hack job. How ever I think a fender mount intercooler would be a great idea to help bring the temp down on charge air.

Here is a picture of mine. I didn't do the conversion but it does seem to be a pretty clean installation.

N/A P'up Turbo Conversion Photos

Postby ronster » Wed Jan 14, 2015 9:00 pm

I've been thinking about adding a turbocharger for a while now and have been looking at pictures of installations done by others in order to figure out my plan. Rather than search the forum over and over for all of the pictures I decided to created a topic to collect pictures and links to other threads. I am hoping others will contribute.

For those that do contribute, please be sure to include photos of your plumbing for the following:

- Air Filter to Turbo
- Turbo to intake manifold (include intercoolers if applicable)
- Exhaust manifold to turbo
- Turbo to the exhaust pipe section leading out of the engine compartment

Also be sure to identify your exhaust manifold solution. A few have stock turbo exhaust manifolds. Others use stock N/A manifolds. Still others have headers built to accept a turbocharger flange.

If you elect to show a picture from the forum, try to provide a link to the original thread where you found the picture. That will help others doing research. The start for this thread came from: /viewtopic.php?f=19&t=21887

For those looking to build a custom header and intake manifold this may be a good start. Cecildiesel is ready to line up orders.

This one is a work by Lserd.oldrp. I believe this is his second pup, expecting a twin turbo.

The thread has some great content: /viewtopic.php?f=19&t=20688

I believe it is a stock turbo manifold.

This one is a work by jmerber. His is an S-10. I believe an intercooler is planned for the near future along with many other power enhancements.

Here is the thread: /viewtopic.php?f=19&t=19427

This is a custom header creation.

This is from 2.2turbodiesel.

Here is the thread: /viewtopic.php?f=19&t=5555

I wish I knew what manifold he used and how he did the plumbing from the exhaust manifold to the turbo. I've wanted to try to duplicate this one.

This is one from another forum. Ratsun was the username. I don't recommend this install.

Looks like he found a stock turbo manifold.

This is from ronbros. He is in an I-Mark fast back coupe. Okay, so much for my limiting this to P'up photos. I just could not ignore the turbo placement. No shots under the hood on this one, but that is not necessary to see the turbo.

Here is the thread: /viewtopic.php?f=19&t=16124&p=101925#p101925

No idea on the exhaust manifold solution.

This one belongs to Nucleus. There is not a P'up in the photos, but has some of the best shots of the stock manifold. The rest of the build is still in progress.

Here is the thread: /viewtopic.php?f=19&t=20481

Stock turbo manifold.

Just for those looking at connecting rods, here is the thread that changed everyone's approach to adding a turbo to a N/A engine:

/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18201

Not adding any pictures to this thread on that topic, but wanted to make it available. This changed the opinion of many when it came to adding a turbocharger to a N/A C223.

I like the heat shield. The routing gets from the turbo to the intake quickly. Can you get some pictures of the exhaust manifold to turbo plumbing? I'm also curious where your air filter ended up.

Okay, I grabbed a couple of pics after work. The truck is currently off premises at my "P'up pound" otherwise I would roll it inside and get some better pics. I wasn't able to get a clear picture of the manifold to turbo. I think it is a stock manifold but I am not positive and will have to investigate more later. And what looks like a heat shield is actually the bracket that holds the turbo set-up to the intake manifold.

This one is by bobbyr. He did a great job of capturing the plumbing from the exhaust mainfold to the turbo.

Here is the thread: /viewtopic.php?f=19&t=14907&p=95714#p95714

This is a N/A manifold. The turbo height gives it away.
