Meh, the alternator will be just fine. That guy with the cummins/suburban can fabricate, though!

jacked from the rice boys:

HOW TO MAKE A COLLECTOR:
After seeing a couple of post asking how to do so and end up with replies such as "It's a secret how to make them things, but we can sell you one" replies from a guy representing Burnstainlesssteel, I felt intrigued to do this. I'm fairly new to CAD but manage to whip this up. I'm sure lot of you guys already know this but this is just for **** and giggles.

Here is your tube to start with.


Simply cut it like this


Here is what it looks like from the front


Then make the same cut on the front side, if the tube was square, this two cut would be perpendicular to each other in a way.


It should look like this after all the cutting.



Top View

Bottom View

Roughly put together. Now you see don't you?

ok, still looking through all those pages, but some questions from the honda one

someone posted this, how would this one perform? with our firing order(1-3-4-2 i think) it would still give even pulses, but would they interfere with each other? what if one and four went to one pipe, and three and two? might save some room is the only reason i'm asking



and here, that's the wg welded in, right?(noob to turbo's)

the ideal place is on the collector, right? but if there's no room, why do people weld in on #4?

The first pic you posted wouldn't be ideal as far as pulses go. That design would yeild a "left left right right" kind of pulsing (3,4,2,1). In my oppinion the ideal would be to group pipes 1 and 4 together, and 3 and 2 together. 1/4 merge to one pipe, though farther down than that pic, and 2/3 merge to another pipe. Then the two pipes merge together. Then you put your WG in there. Actually that first pic is very similar to what I have in mind, just much more compact... I kinda like it if the order were different. So if you had one like I suggest, you'd want 1/4 relatively the same length, and 2/3 relatively the same length, but the two tubes don't necessarily have to be equal.

Yup, that's the external wastegate. Looks like a Turbonetics Deltagate, most people seem to hate them. Get a Tial.

I did mine off the #4 runner of my 90+ and it sucked ass. Do it off the collector if at all possible. On that middle pic you could even put it at the collector, with a 90* bend so the WG faces backwards and reaches the downpipe.

Just my thoughts, I haven't done this yet but I've done a fair bit of research and mooching info from the 600hp swedes .
