slspf2 Well here is an update. After calling several more places I was able to find a standard td04 T7 compressor housing from EliteForeignAuto. Problem? Solved.

Well I spoke with the guy at boostcontroller and they have a reducing elbow from 3" to 2.5", but a single 3" 180' J-bend with 18" legs would be $600.

He has a 3" 180' aluminum pipe available with a 4.75" radius and 5" legs which would only be $40. Think this would work?

We're you able to get a hold of Nick to talk to him?
I spoke with Nick and Jak and Jak's turbo guy... and the dealership near my house, and my mechanic. No one has any burnt up T7 td04 cores or spare compressor housings.

slspf2 Ok so stainless steel piping, a 90' bend from boostcontroller, and does anyone know how much piping I might need?

I have nothing to eyeball as my car is currently in the shop and my mechanic called and told me he did not know what to use... just trying to relay information to him so this can get done. Rental car fees suck ass

You should be abale to eyeball the silicone angle you need. You will also need tubing. No steel, only alu.

slspf2 Any idea on what I need to do to actually make this work, or where I can buy the high-temperature silicone?

Palmer I think it's a 90.

Silicone Bend

Hey I'm attempting (with my mech) to get an aero td04 on my 9-3. The problem is the inlet and I need to figure out what angle to use for a silicone bend if I made one myself. She's been in the shop for about a month and I was finally told I needed a new part... so I'm a bit desperate.

Also if anyone has an tips on how to go about this that would be great... I have called many people about purchasing a T7 compressor housing but that piece seems to be eluding me. Thank you very much!
