    Top mount turbo FTW!!!


    Is that a long 'V' shaped turbo coolant line running across the top of the compressor housing - if it was me I'd be anal and change that to a nice flexi item so it doesn't look so stuck out lol...

    Sweet ride tho and cracking wheels

    Thanks Inital D

    The pictures are crap, will get some nice ones done when I can, but its a bugger to keep them white wheels clean

    About the 'V' shaped turbo coolant line.. I haven't got a clue (not very clued up on the techie side of thing), but since you have noticed it I can see what you mean. What sort of flexi stuff could I use? I try and not do anything to my car's as I normally do it wrong or break something

    That is quite possible but the wheels suit the kit etc down to the ground

    Stunning car lad, I can't wait to see better pics

    Yep same here, once you know the imperfections they always tend to stand out in your eyes and everyone else is like what are you talking about .

    If this is turbo coolant lines then you should be able to replace this with metal braided flexible pipes. On the stock turbo setup, Apex Performance or Hose Solutions sell these flexi turbo coolant feeds for around 100 (Apex - expensive) or around 1/3 to 1/2 less if you buy from Hose Solutions (IIRC).

    You can check whether these are turbo coolant lines by seeing whether one goes to the middle/bottom of the block and the other should go towards the a funny metal bend that is part of the coolant system nearer the front/top of the block (bad explanation - more pics needed lol)


    Basically the best replacement would be 'Aeroquip' metal flexi lines which decent garages should be able to size up and make as custom fits. Since you don't have the turbo in regular location in the bay, I wouldn't get the kits from Apex/Hose Solutions as mentioned above otherwise it might not reach or have the right angles for the banjo bolts (these are the bits that attach the feed lines to the block etc).


    HTH - soz there's too many words... would be easier if I was stood next to you looking at your engine and explaining 1st hand haha!!!
