Default 240 turbo downpipe support pic needed

I started collecting my +t parts over the last 12 months and finally have a weekend to put it all in. I remember when I took all the parts off the 1990 740T there was some sort of downpipe support at the bottom 90 degree. I purchased a JT tuning full 3" turbo exhaust kit and it also has the support piece welded on.
Anyone have a pic of where/how its supposed to be supported? Was it against the bell housing somehow....


Thanks

There is a bracket coming off the trans, I have removed a few of them but anyways that is what you ar looking for. it mounts on 2 bolts on the lower passenger side of the trans and is formed out of steel rod with a sheet metal rectangle that has a bolt hole.

thanks, don't suppose you have a photo? I took as many parts as I could from the donor car but I just don't see anything that looks like it would work.

That's a 240 Turbo specific bracket.
I have an NOS bracket for $25. shipped but no stainless rod hoop.

If you are at all handy with metal it is fairly easy to make something work without using the factory location.

there is also a clamp style one that just bolts to one bolt on the bellhousing.

Thanks for the pic n tips...
I installed everything and it all seems tight and not droopy. I have the exhaust manifold and turbo support bracket in. Just seems like a lot of weight with no support until before the rear axle where theres a big low shaped Y metal arm that goes where the second muffler connects so that is a rigid full support connection.

I guess I'll just leave it for now and and fabricate something to hang off the bellhousing.

Cheers

It is a long way and a long lever because when steel or iron glows orange hot it's soft as butter, so that's exactly why the factory put a brace up to the top of the cat, and that one down on the bell housing to protect the turbo hot side & fasteners.

Good luck rigging up something or other[s].

Resurrecting this thread as I’m in this same spot on my 240. I’m trying to fit a b23et downpipe to b230ft with td04-15g straight flange and the dp bell housing mount just doesn’t end up in the right place. Was the b23et (or maybe it was b21et?) have the turbo in a different place relative to the bell housing? And does that bent wire mount face the front of the car or back because I can’t locate the dp to make the mount work either way. BTW: I cut the cone off the ET dp and plan to weld on a straight flange i have for the TD04. Any knowledge on this issue much appreciated.

I would make a support bracket if needed. My 3" downpipe has a flat rectangular piece of metal with three holes. The one hole is for a bell housing bolt. The other two holes are used for a large U clamp like an exhaust clamp. Works great. You may need a slightly longer bell housing bolt. You want the metal to be something like 1/4" thick so it's strong and won't bend from the U clamp.
