Turbo adaptors
« on: August 08, 2018, 08:13:03 AM »
What do you guys think of the adators from t3 to the Holset Vgt. I’m thinking I might get a aftermarket 6.7 manifold with out the egr restrictive casting as less areas for leakage and look better under the hood. Wish could by a second Gen style manifold with this odd ball flange

There's a market for this flange in a 2nd gen placement that's for sure

Yes I agree!! I don’t like the adaptor in the fact the middle gasket is next to impossible to centre when trying to fit the two halves together with the manifold bolted up.

I'm running the 6.7 egr manifold on my 12v and just deleted the egr . (Made 2 plates and bought universal exh. manifold gasket) so far it's been good . Hasn't leaked yet.  Im using the 12v OEM gaskets at the head (and port matched the manifold to the square gaskets) and of course the OEM gasket at the turbo.

I run the 6.7 manifold on my 12V as well.. drops the turbo way down which is a mixed blessing but it works
