Obviously its not done yet... Have to make the downpipe, have to finsih polishing the comp housing ( ) and have to get a different an adapter cause im retarded and ordered the wrong one. (although i swear to go i tested the thread with my 1/4npt tp... maybe i just meant to do that. its not 1/8"npt though thats for sure... so it looks like its not npt, any ideas? doug?

also--is it okay for the oil drain hose (earl's auto-flex, 300*F) to be touching a runner? If not... I'm gonna have to get creative...

HOLY CRAP! That looks incredible. No need for a downpipe, I'd just run the exhaust out a 90* and straight up out the hood with a rain cap.

It seems like that is gonna melt everything within a few inches... but thats 1000% speculation.


Good luck with the finishing touches

That and the accesories run off a serpentine belt, so you still have to leave the compressor in place meaning packing most of the weight around but not getting any icy goodness. My t6 240 is having ac for damned sure. WTF is the point of running 12's if you can't do it with climate control?

Looks sick man. Like you sya, lots of shielding. And no, I would not let the return touch a runner of at all possible. That line wants to coke up as it is, I doubt it needs encouragement. Maybe it makes no difference but it should would be nice to not have to speculate.

I doubt a turbo that big would somehow make the engine bay hotter than a normal sized T-6 turbo setup. If anything it's gonna cool things off just by merit of having much more flow and more overall metal to absorb all the heat from the exhaust gases. Once that thing's pushing 400rwhp it'll be a different story altogether. He'll get the rank of honorary Swede at that point.

Oh yeah, and that exhaust setup is gonna wreak havoc on your passengers' health.

The turbo setup that came on my T6 motor had a Shizzle-load of heat sheilding on it, actually (on the turbo's and on the actual manifolds). And the turbos are right at the (also heavily shielded) firewall, which is quite free of anything like AC hoses. I agree it'll be ok assuming everything's prepped right, but I wouldn't underestimate the need to sheild everything.

This is a B6304, not a T6, and T6's have factory twin turbos. There is tons and tons of heat shielding and reflective stuff, and the turbos are tiny. Because the car is FWD, they are mounted low and away from the hood. But still.

I'm not sure I get where any of this countermands what I said.

well, one point goes to you on his mis-reading of your post and suggesting that you thought I had a t6. one point goes to him however for pointing out that t6 motors mount them down and under the engine instead of next to a bunch of plastic. seeing as this is a tie, the only solution I can see is a fight to the death in the STEEL OCTAGON

hmm. Heat transfer still occurs no matter what it's rated at, so I would definitely not want it touching unless there were no other way. I imagine it would be entirely possible for oil to coke up so that eventually all flow to the oil galley would be blocked. But that's like worst case.
