HiIts been a while since I updated this....
So I finally got sick of having to run the lift pump before running the car for cold start (to clear the build up over night). Also thought, why not try something different.
An XR6 turbo pops up on ebay relatively cheap and brand new... so this happens...
Reused existing manifolds to save time and money, just had to tweak them..
Worked fine, only issue was the oil return pump. You really need to put some decent coin into one, or it leaks as well. Although a cheapy from ebay did last over a year (but did weep some oil). Other thing to note is you would have to turn the return pump on before starting the car to suck any oil that has settled in the lines, or the turbos will leak on first start.Hi
Did it work & if so any problems?
Hurm.... never had a problem before but will keep it in mind, although I never run gaskets (unless its the turbo). Did you run a flex joint?Can i make a suggestion? V band that crossover pipe instead of the 2 bolt flange. I had all sorts of problems with mine till i went V band. I couldnt get the bloody thing to stop leaking. It kept blowing gaskets.
