    Old Skool Help Required

    Hello all

    perhaps you can help me here.

    Looking ahead at my project I can see that the exhausts from the turbo's are going to cause me some headache among many others and I would like your opinion as to what i available or what route you may take.

    the problem is that the cast elbows that bolt directly onto the turbines are pointing in directions I would like to change as I route the exhaust. I had hoped of fabricating elbows which effectively point up on the drivers side and loop up and over to the other elbow for a single pipe exit. This would help me as the steering rack also locates near the drivers side turbo.


    I was curious to know if anyone had made such elbows to do similar purpose as I know you can buy prefabricated bent pipe sections.

    I also have one concern about how robust this option might be as these elbows are very heavy gauge and see great temperatures, so would a fab job suffice?

    if you have other ideas please let me know so I can consider all options.

    ps the frame you see below is the beginnings of my space frame chassis for the front.

    I can help you mate.
    Just tell me what size tube you need and I'll bend you some 90's and 45's up.
    Once you have the elbows you can either tack 'em in place rough and I can arrange collection when you have finished and make you a pukka system or you can use the elbows, your choice.
    Cost will be material + carriage + donation to T/S.
