The turbo finally made its way to its permanent home. I removed the manifold to check for obstructions. All clear!
There is a ton of potential in good manifold. One day I might put it on a mill and clean up the ports to their potential.
Some of the pipes needed arrived. The GM packaging is by far some of the best!
All ready to go now. Just need a few more nuts for the turbo to manifold
My personal opinion is that Fidanza shouldn’t be allowed to sell parts with sick half assed support . To get a party they recommended I would have to go to Europe or China but online the part is harder to find than a uniform.
I bought a piece of bronze on what and stayed to machine my own. The dimensions were simple. 16mmID 28mmOD and 26mm in length. It took about an hour to make.
Overall it will get the job done and be fine. That said I am no where near the phase of recommending a fidanza product. Especially after the need for custom bolts!
