WATER OUTLET / TURBOCHARGER WATER PIPE

Tue Apr 09, 2019 7:27 pm

The water intake pipes for the ST185 3sgte.

Part Number - 16027-88381

I have just got my hands on the bran new Mamba braided oil and water lines for the 3sgte turbo charger.

On the original Toyota part the section that meets the turbo, has one long pipe that is inserts in to the turbo to help circulate the water.

On the new Mamba water lines the section that meets the turbo is completely flat!

Its won't circulate water as intended, I don't think its safe?

Any alternatives or advice please.

It'll be fine.
I've run a ct20b without water cooling at all for 5yrs now. No issues :)

The water cooling was mainly there to stop the oil burning and leaving residues after engine-shutdown.
Synthetic oils have basically fixed this problem.

Hi thanks for replaying here is a link to the new flanges on Amazon.

Notice the flat face plate.

The original Toyota part has a long inert. You say these are all good??

If it can survive what MWP puts his car through, it'll be just fine for anyone else.

Hah, i wouldn't go quite that far.
It does see some abuse, but really i don't put that many miles on it.
