RE: Turbo Exhaust manifolds
... I don't know WHERE I got the "3" piece EM from ... I meant two-piece!
In any event it appears that the major issue is the positioning of the
wastegate on the EM, and I would suppose that this might affect the
corrugated tube as well. The 2-piece EM was designed for the later turbo
engines, and I have noticed that on the '88 5k turbo the WG is mounted
farther aft and oriented farther away from vertical as compared with the
QTC. I really wonder if it will be possible to bolt in the 2-piece on
an urQ without including some of the exhaust system of the 5000 as well.
I think I'll try to compare the corrugated tube and exhaust systems on
both this evening ... I didn't hear from anyone that had BTDT.
I've eyeballed em with the two manifolds on the bench side-by-side. The WG location and orientation appeared to be identical. Cannot swear to this with 100% certainty as they combo has still not yet been installed in the ur-q.
