  • picked up a new pet snail today

    its from a 6.5 duramax no shaft play basically brand new [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif[/img]

    i'm thinking about maken a header vs my log manifold

    do you guys think a header would help this with spooling that much more?

    got a sweet deal on it

    heres some pics

    turbine side doesn't look much bigger then my current turbo but the compressor definitly is lol

    i'm told this is the same one bc livewire was gonna run on his car

        to use the turbine housing, youwould need some sort of top mount manifold.


        A log generally spools a little fast and won't flow well in the top end.

        A tubular manifold is pretty much the oposite.

          well what i was gonna do since idk what i could do to connect a pipe to the outlet of that since its cast iron was to find a plat that bolts to it or make my own and then just weld a pipe to it like how my current turbo has it

          then i could still use the log no prob

            Ohh...its flanged? TheRob had one like that before, but the ehaust pipe was cast into the turbine housing...I think it has an o-trim turbine wheel...which tended to spool really slow with my extra P-trim housing due to the 1/16-1/8 gap between the wheel and the housing.

              heres a pic with that piece off does atp or places make a flange close to this?



              the hole where the w/g flapper goes isn't completely smooth with where the flange bolts on to, so i'm gonna have to weld the hole shut right or i'll get a leak i am guessing

              never converted a terdbo before from internal to external

                    Hey, that's a GM-8 turbo. They're pretty cool. I have a broken one here, and its a nice size. Yes, to convert to external you'll have to block that hole somehow.

                        You probably won't be ableto find the flange...at least not easily.

                        If you can't find it...let me know. I can take an etching down to the laser guy and get it cut from 1/2 mild or stianless (mild will warp less and it less epxensive).

                          ...

                          Yeah, Sam's right. I'd get it custom cut in mild with a hole for a 3" DP. That's the best choice, I think. GM-8 is just the designation for the turbo. There was also a GM-4, GM-6, etc., but they are older designs.

                            The number might have to deal with the number of cyliners...Iknow some superchargers designation where based on displacement and cylinders...Like DD-C#

                              That's a good point, but all of the GM-X ones came off of the BIG trucks. There was also a GM-3, which woulda been an odd configuration for a turbo diesel! Hahaha.
