How about a front mounted radiator? That'd give you lots more space.
It will be going into a clubman so there is a lot more room up front, I considered the front mount rad and after lots of searches decided to stick with original position. The design i have done for new connection of inlet to turbo is small and should fit, but there is a lot of guessing going on.. Its just not the kind of picture you can find on the net.
Fair enough, I have a front rad in my plaggy car & it's a close, but manageable fit by the subframe tower with a silicone reducer elbow. The reducer elbow definitely helps, the casting thickness of the turbo housing adds a fair amount of diameter above that of the actual inlet.
I have put some pictures of what i plan to make to improve the connection. But the problem i have is will it really fit.. The new section removes the original actuator bracket and hose connection. So the new unit blots strait to the turbo compressor housing, this should give more room, the hose connection going out will be steel tube to start so i can alter the angle as required. It all sits within the same dimension as the compressor housing but without having the engine in a car I cant be certain it will fit
any comments of fitting welcome -
