Here's the header I just finished for CarFreak85. It has 1.5" primaries and 1.75" up pipe with 4 bolt head flanges and stock IHI turbo flange in stock location. I do plan on polishing it but I need to fit it to the car to make sure it won't need any mods first. Just taking the stock pipe out was a sumnabish, I might have to jack the engine up to do it.

The one above it is my 2" header with 2" primaries and 2" up pipe. I used a slip joint between the left and right bank. This is setup for a Garrett T3 mounted pretty high in the engine compartment because the Garrett is much larger and the spider intake is in the way. I think I'll also be adding a wastegate pipe to mount an external wastegate.

That is beautiful!!!:slobber: I like that fact that you are doing the external WG thing so it's more tunable.Very nice work.:clap:

What type of tig do you use?I really want to make one for ea81 n/a.I think it would be awesome!

Any chance you are going to build one for ej22t?

You definately have a gift.:headbang:

As far as ej22t and er27, I don't have the engine or car to use for fitment. All I have is an ea82 engine and chassis.

I will be making one for an ej22t but it will be for a mid engine sandrail with the turbo mounted above the transaxle, Formula 1 style...well, at least the way they were mounted until F1 banned turbochargers in 1989.

easy way to remove crossover pipe is to hammer in the mounting tabs, raise front of car, remove whatever is still holding, let left side fall down, rotate, twist, slide, duck

mine fell off one time for me

Actually, that is my 2.3L HO Quad 4 sandrail. It's 10:1 compression and MPFI with 180hp 180lbs/ft with 7200 rpm redline, stock. I'm just gunna go with NOS on it, I just found out that Woodburn dragstrip will let me race it up there so it's time to build a wheelie bar! I pull wheelies in second gear in the sand when the engine hits it's powerband, feels like a dirtbike the way the power comes on.

I got pissed and used my sawzall to remove the driver side bank and the passenger side came right out after that. I just needed the passenger side piece to locate the turbo flange relative to my engine on the stand.

I bought the tubing pre-bent off an ebay store and had it shipped to Oregon for assembly.

Does the TD04 have the same flange as the T3? I know the Garrett T4 is not the same, but I can't imagine you are installing one of those.

I might have to make up a jig to make these things quicker.
I don't really know what these are worth, I guess it will all come down to 1/4 mile times. I think CarFreak's headerr is gunna be much more streetable than mine, but I'm not going for streetable.

The welder is a Lincoln Precision TIG 185

The TD04 has basically the same flange as a stock IHI RHB5 that came on the EA82Ts. The only mod I had to do to my uppipe was pull out the back stud on the uppipe and then weld it back onto the flange about 1/2" back. I'm not really going for streetable but I will drive it on the street. I already got a 3" exhaust on it and its loud still but meh, I don't care:D

Who made that flex pipe? I have been looking all around for them, I have been told that the only US based company that made them went under.

Don't buy that one! They suck, the only stainless parts on it are the wire weave and some Pepsi can thin stainless inside. Not much to weld to on this kind. In retrospect, I should have just clamped it or found a better flex joint.
I used a slip joint on the bigger header. Ther is about 3" of overlap and it fits tightly. When the smaller inside pipe heats up, it expands and seals the gap almost perfectly. The outer pipe is colder so less expansion. We'll see how it works out.

What about putting the flex joint on the uppipe portion? Most exhaust leaks on the EA82Ts are because of flex at the turbo mounting flange. This should reduce the amount of stress applied to the header and mounting flanges. Either way, those are some butt-kicking headers! Kudos to you Good Sir!

Oh I replied to your email reply.
