I did not see Your post till today. The car is all buttoned up now. Also the exhaust is wrapped. I will take more pics next time the rear clam is off.
The exhaust manifold is of a custom design. It is an equal-length header with BurnsStainless turbo collector. I mounted the turbo in the back and ran exhaust to it in the straightest possible path. There are some pictures on page 4 and 3.
The collector is 321 stainless i.e. much better than 309 or 409 that is commonly used. The manifold is Inconel. Look at the difference after some use. 321 is all black and scaly. Inconel just turned greenish-grey (color of Chromium oxide). Inconel is still shiny!
I use an ARE dry sump system. I use an adaptor plate for remote oil filter where the oil filter used to be. There was a small oil feed line in that plate. This is where I take turbo oil feed. It is clean oil right after the external oil filter.
The return was provided by ARE in the dry sump oil pan. It is AN10.
I made sure that the turbo was higher than the oil sump. Water lines are more tricky, if required.
Most people take the oil feed from the VTeC oil pressure sensor port by t-ing off it. As long as the turbo return line is sloping down and empties above the oil level in the pan, a fitting can be welded to any oil pan. Dry sump makes oiling much simpler.
What exhaust manifold did you use in your car? Is it a custom build design? (Any pictures?)
How did you plumb the oil feed and return lines from the engine (where on the engine did you feed and return from?).
Thanks very much!
