Tube Reducers Explanied

The taper is sharp and the length of taper is over 1" long. These are perfect for turbo down-pipes where space is an issue while trying to step up in pipe size within small spaces. Another advantage of the short series exhaust reducer is that they all have a section of straight tube, this can be used for better stud and bolt clearance when using them for down-pipes.  The bolts or studs on the turbine housing are important to be accessed easily for maintenance and easy fitment. The last&nbs...

D.I.Y Product Spotlight - Exhaust V-bands

Exhaust Flanges In the past Exhaust flanges have been the go to when fabricating exhaust systems, these come in a few different options 2 bolt, 3 bolt & 4 bolt flanges. There is no doubt that the flange option is very strong and can hold up to a fair bit of abuse, but they can be a bit of a time consuming task to bolt together depending on what bolt option you have and clearance for bolts/washers & access with spanners can get tight.  Gaskets can be an issue over time with vibration a...

D.I.Y Product Spotlight - 90 Degree Cast Aluminum Elbows

A Cast Aluminum Elbow is a tight radius section of alloy, this is made by pouring liquid molten aluminum into a mold, the molten material sets and hardens creating a Cast Elbow.  With conventional ways of forming tube i.e mandrel bending you are limited to how tight the radius of the bend can be. In most cases a standard radius bend is not an issue but when dealing with tight spaces in engine bays of vehicles a cast elbow really shows it advantages. ...

Technical Info - Manifold & Down-pipe Bracing

Turbo support is a big part of the reliability of any turbo setup, the combination of immense heat and vibrations from high revving engines is enough to test even the toughest components. The main thing to think about with bracing is thermal expansion, whenever things get hot they expand and this needs to be thought about before bracing your turbo setup, making everything solid can sometimes cause more harm than good.  A prime example...... welding solid braces from your exhaust manifold ...

D.I.Y Product Spotlight - Exhaust Flexi

An Exhaust Flexi is constructed of three layers, the inside has a interlocking inner, a middle ribbed section (similar to a Exhaust Bellow) that re-enforces the inner layer, and a outer woven stainless steel wire exterior. Its purpose is to act as a point of movement in an exhaust. (these can also be used for external waste-gate pipes). They reduce the weight and vibration being transferred back up through your headers or turbo setup, this weight and vibration is created from the length of an ex...

Technical Info - Fabricating turbo oil drains

We get a lot of questions regarding oil drains by people saying there drain line is to close to the manifold runners & waste gate ports etc. This would be for the guys running a top mount manifold by the way as low mount you will not have to clear the runners, but the following info can still help in general.  So we are going to get into how we fabricate our oil drains when we are setting up a manifold & turbo in our shop....... Will start by saying with tubular manifolds they do take up al...
