Definitely, I think I'm going to give a friend a call to see how much he will charge me for one. At this point, getting the one from the U.K. could be up to $75 with the cost of shipping now... Or I could buy the OEM fit one that ATP sells and weld a 3.5" on the outside or use a 3-4" flare. Not the look I want, I definitely want a short piece to use with a tight radius 4".Problem with having them machined here is id need to do a batch of a dozen or two to spread out programming costs. Big risk making a few thousand dollars worth of v bands to sell a 4” downpipe.
Noticed a bunch of smoke coming from under the hood, with a sweet smell. Coming from the turbo area, figured it was the coolant adapter. I bought the EMD billet aluminum adapter a while ago so finally installed it. Hardest part was taking off the coolant hose. Would’ve been easier to cut it off and put a new one on. Only one T30 holding it in place. Take the top coolant hose clamp off, take off the T30 and lift the stock plastic adapter out with the hose attached. Mine looked fine, only the o ring was torn.
So far no smoke.
Maybe 1/2 quart. I just use distilled water since it’ll never freeze here and it’s hard to find G13 coolant.Did you loose any coolant? I changed mine when I did my turbo, but just did the OEM plastic one. Was easy to swap with the turbo out and coolant drained
Have been considering getting the metal one and doing it, but didn't know how easy it was to do just by itself.
G13 coolant is not just for freezing. It has additives that prevent corrosion etc. I just bought a quart of premixed G13 coolant from the dealer for $13.Maybe 1/2 quart. I just use distilled water since it’ll never freeze here and it’s hard to find G13 coolant.
All you need is something to take off the hose clamps and a T30.
I didn't word that very well obviously. I meant I bought a bottle of premix 2 years ago when my thermostat housing was leaking. Not just bought. Only 1 lemonade and I'm not telling how many 'sJim, “I just bought” and 2 years do not coordinate how many lemonades have you had tonight
