Anybody got some good top and bottom pix of the turbo manifold? I've been thinking about a pointless project and would like a clear view of the manifold, preferably off the engine.

Take a look in my garage. There are a couple there from when I did my injector job on the pass side. Maybe not exactly what you're looking for but might be a good start and better than nothing.

I've got a spare turbo that is still attached to the manifold at work. I could take some pics of it, but the turbo is still attached and you probably want just the manifold?

heh

well, I figure it might be interesting to waste some time and money on installing an external wastegate. Control boost from in the cab, get some interesting looks from the wastegate dump pipe sitting out of the fender, and external wastegates make a hella sweet noise when they open up. When external wastegates open it dumps excess exhaust pressure right out the side of it, into whatever small pipe you install there.

yeah I was looking at a wastegate adapter like you have on ebay, but it wouldnt do me much good. The intercooler pipe hangs over the turbo a little, and I dont feel like redoing the downpipe. looks good though

So basically you could have both going off at the same time and people will think your engine just blew up.

Maybe one of those whistles hooked up to it.

Wrong post, but I have to ask if this is your toy? I live in Haslet and like to know if I see any trucks out on the road that also go here on DP.

no, just the external wastegate.

I dont want a blow off valve grape, I personally like the sound of an external wastegate dumping through an open ended pipe.

Here are a few pics. It's very hard to get good pictures when the manifold and turbo are together, especially with my junk camera. My wife won't let me use the good one, lol. I don't know if these will help you or not.
