Trying to get a downpipe to suite to V70 Manifold and Turbo configuration which is the oppsoite side to the standard T4 set up.

compressor housing inlet is on the O/S and compressor outlet points down

only need the down pipe , manifold gasket and oil return pipe and then it will be a couple of weeks.

The T4 is my daily driver at the moment but the wife get her new car in a week so i will have my Octavia VRS Back and will be able to get the T4 on the ramps and get it all fitted.

Got a downpipe delivered today but it's the wrong set up, its been made to fit the standard T4 Set up. with the exhaust turbine on the O/S

Can't you just cut the flange off the correct downpipe for that turbo, get a pipe bent to shape and weld the flange on. Can have a decent size downpipe then aswell.
Or just cut the correct downpipe where needed, rotate it to suit and weld it back up.

we dont name and shame on the forum bud..... Will is a stand up guy!!! If hes not answering his emails then there will be a good reason why......


when you get your downpipe fabbed make sure it has a flexiable section otherwise is will shake your turbo to bits......

120 for a custom downpipe is well cheap
