    Default good idea/bad idea?

    I am kind of taking inventory of turbo parts I have accumulated over the years. I want to use these turbos here:

    mostly, because I like the integrated wastegate setup (providing it works of course)

    But I also have these logs

    Someone welded in the wastegate, which I thought was a pretty neat idea...but not sure if it is a good one, or a bad one.

    Easier to read with pics instead of links

    Theyre all small looking turbines for a 540 man.honestly you wld make more power with a cheap blowthru carb and a pair of gt45's frm ebay.stallion was smoking guys with a banks setup converted to blowthru with cheap turbos.the gt45's frm ebay are holding up really well, look em up.pm stallion bout his old setup it hauled ass.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    I liked the pictures.

    Before I would get too excited about switching to a blow-through system, the draw-through doesn't work bad if your using carburetors and RAJAY is one of turbos with the right seals to do it.

    One thing I did notice and perhaps there are those who have more knowledge than I have can clarify.
    One of the turbine housings appears to be an A/R 13 and the other appears to be an A/R 85.
    That would appear to be a mis-match of turbine housings.
    Am I mistaken?

    Not to Hi-jack this thread, but I would like to locate a Rajay A/R 13 exhaust housing if anyone has one reasonably priced.

    Sorry...one set of turbo's are the EE trim which I believe is

    E-Flow inducer/trim: 2.25" (57mm)/56 trim; E-Flow exducer/trim: 2.44" (62mm)/66 trim and a 1.03 AR

    The other set of Turbos I haven't figured out yet.

    I kind of figure I will wind up with an EFI on this boat at some point down the line (I already have the computer), so I have been rebuffing info's attempts to convert me from draw thru...though his persistence at least has me entertaining the idea of how to turn my innercooler into a carb hat I was pretty happy with the draw thru though...my uncles boat ran the dual carb PFM system for about 30 years before going to efi...that thing was turn key!

    Why start with a dominator manifold, make an adaptor so you can use a POS Holley base, that he had to buy anyway and didn't already have laying around, then mickey mouse a throttle sensor to it, as a opposed to a 4 barrel throttle body with a throttle sensor mount in it, along with a provision for a IAR. Wonder if he had some super bitchin plan to flow air thru that sharp edge base plate as opposed to a nicely contoured 4 bbl throttle body. Because if he just stuck the hat on that POS, he was just pissing into the wind. A nice fabricated throttle body would way out flow that pile by a shit load.

    You got me...I just liked the look of it hanging out under the innercooler. Personally, I changed...well...TJ who used to be on this site...changed the base of my innercooler to a dominator a few years ago so I wouldn't have to mess with damned adapters.

    Whats the reason for a dominator manifold to begin with. In either case. Cool factor????

    Better idea is to just put the whole damned carb there under the cooler and forget the efi.

    Yeah, but the cooler bolts on with a carb pattern, You'd have to flip the POS over and they don't work so well like that

    I am switching the green boat to EFI port injection and using 2 throttle bodies and staying drawthru.

    No sense of imagination

    Again, you jehova witnesses of blow thru DO have me thinking...

    I would have to do a dominator to 4150 adapter...or, just get another 4150 intake...which I do actually have, even if it is a dual plane manifold. Drill a hole through the center of the cooler and have an adapter made up that would attach with 4 bolts to the dominator flange on the cooler and taper down to like an air cleaner flange. Might look a little silly though. Come to think of it...I do have another innercooler that has a 4150 plate still...
