I dont think those look to bad, you will have to keep them in that spot if you want to keep the log's though. I would have made them so they came out the side of the adapter pointing to the outside of the hull. Then point the dump straight up and make a nice pipe with a 90 degree bend in it to dump out the back of the boat with the exhaust off the turbines.

You could still do this if you cut the existing pipe off flush and get a couple a tight radius 90's!! That will point them to the outsides of the hull then you can build some good looking dump tubes!

Those WG's are pretty close to the fiberglass, not sure how hot they will get . . . can you rotate them? Another option could be to add turbo header flange as a spacer but that might change other geometry . . . . fockin turbos!:|err

Can you unbolt the elbow and bolt on a over the trans pipe? If so I have a pair that have your name on them (for a Mondelo or three:D) they are slightly used chrome with a flat flange you can drill if you need to . . . . anything to get Turbowog Racing back out there . . . :)devil

Let me know bro

Even though they are redoing them for you, you could make them look a little cleaner. Although, I don't think they look bad.
For a cleaner look, have them weld the nuts in place, then cap the whole thing with sheet metal. This way it will look more similar in size to the logs that they are coming off of.

thank you s2k1. thats what i thought. not very clean at all right now. i want them built out of a solid peice of aluminum, but the seat for the waiste gate is stainless. i wonder if they can braze alum. to stainless?

Jet Hot (or similar) coat the riser/wastegate housings and they will hardly be noticable when it is all done.

Its a solid piece of stainless and the large hole that goes through it starts off the size of the outlet in the aluminum elbow and funnels out to the size of the inlet on the t04 turbo, they dont match up very well so my bud made them match the adapter.


TurboWog, I"ve got a set of aluminum risers that are designed for wastegates to bolt directly to them if your interested shoot me a pm.

Hass,

If TurboWog is not interested in the risers, I might be. Do you have any pics?

Thank You,

Earle
