Bogans stupid questions thread.. ;)

Hey there guys..

Is there any reason why I cant run my T25/T25 Garrett in the Top mount position... On a GS Top mount manifold ?

Cheers Greg

you made a hybrid t25 with another t25?

I think it will be fine, they just mount them on the bottom side to make things more neat and tidy.

it's not like the oil pump will have any trouble pumping oil to the turbo.

hahaha...Sorry.. Typo on The T25/T25... WTF ?...lol

I meant the write T25/T28... Pffft

On my RWD engine I am setting up...I can't mount the turbo using the standard manifold...The engine mounts get in the way...
If I use the GS top mount mani....it will fit no worries

While I am rebuilding my 2.3 engine... I will use one of my spare 2.0 engines I have and run my stage 5 set up I have on my Talladega.

I will run the 2.0 with the T28 turbo on the top mount mani..

When I finally rebuild the 2.3 I will drop a gt 3071 onto it (or a HE351cw)*undecided*

I'm still waiting on my custom oil pan to come back...any day now... Pffft

Hi Greg, 9000 mani with a downside up adapterplate is working fine. 12mm is enough.

Got some T2 flanges on the way...Up pipe coming
I wonder if this would work..It would make nice flow...the radius might be a bit big though?
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/171236254...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Can I plumb my turbo up with something like this ?
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/181716501...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT



Thoughts ?

Thanks..

Sooo, If i use that braided line kit to plumb my Turbo...I would have to get "threaded" banjo bolts for the connections ?

Is that right?

Summit has a pretty good selection for finding conversion fittings. Even if you don't buy from them, you can maybe get OEM part numbers, maybe find vendors in AUS

Like here's -AN like those red/blue fitting to Metric

http://www.summitracing.com/search/d...3%2B4294920733

I don't know what your space constraints look like, but I bet the turbo side is metric female, and you may be be able to skip the banjo thing totally and just thread an o-ringed/crush/sealing washer Metric to Male -AN fitting. Then use female -AN hose ends like the pic above. If you haven't used -AN fittings before watch those hose end fittings some are swivel type and some aren't

Update...... ***

Hey there Guys...
Ok...Question.!

I have a B234 and 3x 204's sitting in my Garage

I want to work over my B234...
when I am buying Cams....are the Aftermarket b204 and b234 cams the same ?
I just noticed that G.S doesnt sell Enim cams anymore too !

Should I go with the mild upgrade Cams...or the big upgrade Cams to go with my Holset HE351cw.? .(similair to HX35) but better.

This car will not be a daily driver...It will be a weekend thrash / race car..

What head is better...B234 or B204 ?

What is the ulimate combnaition of parts..?

I'm thinking of boring the block and running big pistions with big cams...

As I said.. 1x b234 and 3 b204's

Whats is the ulimate b20X build ? In combination with my Holset He351cw ?

any input and advice is good !

Help me build an animal motor

Cheers

as far as I'm aware, the 234 and 204 heads are the same.
