I have a great boss who does not mind me using the work shop after knock off
As much as i would like my own milling machine at home its just not a reality (for now….)
this turbo manifold needed to be machined flat after the welding process, to make sure the gaskets seal up correctly and less prone to puling head studs out
First up clamp her down nice and solid
Clock it up
easier said than done since its not flat…
rough out the flange with the tungsten tool
you can see the parts that have warped once you start machining
change over to the fly cutter to clean it all up
it got a bit tight!! it did not touch but there was no light coming through the gap
This manifold is for a 4agze motor being converted to turbo using a EVO 5 TD05
which is twin scroll turbo, hence the split chambers
hopefully we will have more info soon on the vehicle this motor will be going in
all I know is its main purpose will be the transportation or groms to rad surf spots… FAST!
Timmydee and Ash, 3 years on and the manifold is still going strong. Strong enough for 190rwkw on 13.5psi boost with e85. Boost problems and currently a little un drivable with excess of 22 -27psi depending on the right foot. Don’t even need to guess the power output, it has more than enough. Cheers once again for the machining time and attention to detail T.D.
