Don't forget using a manifold spacer you'll need longer 8mm studs to secure the manifold in place. I ended up making some from stainless bar. Also what intake pipe have you ordered mike? I ended up putting a cone filter and cold air feed down buy the fog light as I couldn't go the normal route due to space restrictions.

Cheers Phil - I'm on it bud!

As for the intake pipe, I've got a few options in the offing so to speak, just weighing up which way to go currently!

Yamas!

So the intake pipe plot thickens! - was going the Maptun route as its a pukka item designed for the GT series of Turbo Blowy things - and blow me down (no pun intended!) the chap that makes em for Maptun has only gone and died! :( - so very sadly both he and the pipes are no more!

So what next I wonder? :wall:

Yamas!

Is that the case for all the intake pipes Maptun sell i wonder? Ifso im going to run into problems with mine too as the SaabFlight hybrid im getting is based around the 9k Aero and doesnt have the V-band connection for the O.E Cobra. :?

This is the one i wanted so i could retain my airbox...

Cheers Simon

I don't know on that one Si - the one I was looking at was for the GT series Turbos, the one you're looking at looks just like my Taliaferro, sans the V band, being replaced by the elbow.

This was the GT series one.

Might be worth putting a call into Maptun or Neos and finding out bud!

Yamas!

Whats happened Mike?

Its looking unlikely that I'm going to get this turbo to fit properly and because of the manifold I'm looking to use I'm going to lose the cooling fans, which we thought we'd overcome - but it would appear not and the last thing I want to do is butcher the living daylights out of my car, so I might be looking for another, more suitable blower! :?

Yamas!

What manifold are you using?
Slimmer fan?

We kept the standard fan in john's 9-3, just need a slight trim on the cowl.

Maptun tubular shifts the turbo too close to the fans .

What manifold did you use Martin ??

John used a standard manifold and still got 480+ bhp. This is what swayed me on keeping mine (well that and i'm a tight .).

Got a Maptun Manifold lined up - but I'm definately going to lose my fans. I think that the .70 ar is going to cause a problem to - even with the fans removed when its attached to the Maptun manifold.

As the turbo is a little on the large side I want a tubular to help with spool up.

I've been talking to one or two people who have given me some major doubt that what I'm wanting to do will actually work? I'm now looking at moving the rad assembly forward to see how much room that affords me. I've also asked for some advice regarding fans but as yet i've not heard anything.

One option I have is to move down to a .50 ar inlet housing, but thats going to cost me, but what I don't want to do is buy everything to find that it won't go in how I want it too and quiet frankly losing my fans is not an option. I've been told that front mounting slimlines is no good and won't cool the engine properly so its all a bit of a mystery really.

Yamas!

could you use a tapered Spacer to tilt the turbo back towards the block giving a little more room?

I've actually gone down a different route after much investigation and head scratching...............

Turbo and Manifold spacer have been despatched today for a little tweeking! - Still not quite sure what the final result will be, but its going to be a giggle! - the plot thickens as they say! :twisted:

Soon as I know whats happening I'll put it up! :corn:

Yamas!

Perhaps you should fire Soulfirer (Kev) a PM as he's "GT30'd" his 9-5. He may be able to advise you a little.

So finally down to Neo's to collect my Turbo - had a great day out as always with Ade and Os and thanks of course to Nick, Andy, Demos, Nicholas, Elysha and everyone else at Neo's for making us feel so welcome - its always a great laugh!

So here it is - I wasn't sure how it compared to my TD04 - until I put them next to each other - see if you can spot the difference? - I tried - but I just can't see it myself! :argh: :wall:

One things for sure - we're gonna have some fun fitting it! :lol:

Oh shugar, i'm gonna have my work cut out here aren't i?

I'd resisted the urge so far to read this thread 'cos i knew it would give me heart failure.

Note to self: must work on a remote mapping adapter so i don't have to be in the same car as this thing. :wall:
