Hi guys, just wanted to share with yall the fresh, new Turbo that I got, There is still the 2 1/4" downpipe there but soon will be replaced with a 3" fully tube SS.

French, English, and very very basic Spanish. :) I can ask for the bathroom and stuff like that. Hehe! Thing is, Spanish is similar to French so I can usually pick up the idea. Answering back is another thing though...

so true

what kind of boost you running....is it idling smooth and shit or are you still tuning??

Diego que bueno esta ese carro.

Love the car and love your work on it. But if i may add something....the flow of your intake air seems like it would take a massive beating by turbulence created by the sqeeze in the pipe where the power steering fluid resevoir sits. If i would of had it my way...move the tank and make the transition of the air into the throttle body nice and flush.

how much gain in hp did u find changing the air intake from the top of the engine to where it is now?

nice setup *th-up* heat wrap is a *no-no* for headers tho

why do you say that????
i thought it was good to keep the exhaust heat high to improve air flow???:confused:

it will make the pipe wear out three times faster. it degrades the metal faster with the wrap. i think its controversial (cant spell), you want to disipate heat not keep it in, but you want lower underhood temps. all i know is the exhaust pipe will wear faster about three times as fast with wrap.

Thanks guys, the pipe near the steering fluid tank is flowing right, that punch doesn't affect the flow trust me, or at least is insignificant. is just a bit.

I sa wmany guys with downpipes that are using the wrapp tough, it doesn't let the heat goes arround the engine bay heating the air temp ambient.

Actually you want to keep the heat in the pipe, because it will keep the exhaust velocity up, improving flow and relieving backpressure on the turbo.

Wraping the turbo manifold will also allow a quicker spool, because heat is energy that should be used to spin the turbo.

Although it has been known to crack turbo manifolds.

Down pipes are relativly inexpensive. I wouldn't worry about it.

like skunk said your header will be gone in no time... the heat and constant flow of gases will literally eat away the inside of your header...i have seen where people pull back their heat wrap and the header breaks away with it.. personally i would never use it not, its worth the time and money its gunna cost u down the road*thmbsdwn*

No problem man, I did the header in my shopp, is not problem do another one, and it cost mea cent.:)

The header anyways doesn't have the heat wrapp, what has that is the downpipe, another piece of cheap part that I can make another one quickly.*th-up*
