$30 since I only had two cut so it cost quite a bit more per unit than ats etc for example cutting a whole pile.

I think after shipping + welding a tube to it, I would probably better off getting one in the states. Thank you for the offer though!

No problem. In a few months I will sell the adaptor I have on the car at the moment and make a new one but it would be way cheaper for you to buy a ready made one unless it wasn't to your spec.

Where do the bottom support brackets mount to?

Do you have top brackets also? If so, where did you attach those.

I'm looking for some ideas.

I don't have AC so I think they are bolted to the "ledge" where the AC radiator sat. You can see the bolts on the under car pic on the previous page. The bottom mounts only bolt in one place each. The top mounts span across the top of the IC and mount in 4 places. I can take photo's if you like?

Basically it is very very overkill. You could probably pick the car up by the intercooler.

Photo's would be great. I can't decide if I want to weld on custom brackets, or weld on some stacked nuts and use long bolts or thread rod.

Here you go. These are the only photo's on my computer which slow it at all. My IC had M8x1.5 tabs to screw into so I used some threaded rod. You can see the bolts for the top mounts, the other ends are in the metal section behind where the carbon fibre strip sits above the bumper. There are holes in the top of it where you can fit bolts into the lower part.

This crappy pic you can just see the lower mount on the far right.

It rotates which ever way you want. From what I can remember you cannot rotate it down without removing the radiator- its 2 clips, 2 hoses, 2x 12mm bolts and its out, not hard. I think I have removed the radiator 8 times, takes about 10 minutes.

can you rotate it clockwise on the gearbox side also?? that way you wouldnt have to remove the radiator (if the turbo outlet touches it when rotating)..

i dont really want to drain the coolant :P

Definitely not. Its really not a big job to drain it.

what about poping the housing off...putting at the angle, put some oil on the huge 'o-ring' and put her back together? just an idea....

After doing this I found a tiny pin that is meant to hold the housing in the stock position. I had to remove the housing, pull the pin, and then clock it. Otherwise the housing will not sit flush and will leak, and may damage the compressor turbine. You have to pull off the housing in order to get to the pin, its no big deal as long as your careful not to chip the compressor fins. This was all on a new CT27, so older turbos may be missing the pin totally.

I did too, but actually filed a little notch like on the other side so I could keep the pin under boost I was worried it might rotate and that was to keep it in one spot.
