we noticed something when we took the plumbing off the turbos
 
kinda rough inside
 
Ok, REALLY rough inside
 
Stalactites??? Those little bb's will not pass thru turbos (or engines) without causing major damage when they come off
 
this is good for airflow. NOT
 
 
 
O_o  wow, some new kinda new swirl technique? Pinholes are to keep from building too much boost?
 
amazing
 
this plumbing is scrap metal - looks ok from the outside, but it's the inside that matters
 
The configuration of this 2 into one wye is all wrong. Sure it gets air to the right place,
but it has the airflow from each turbo directed toward each other, with no way to separate or divide the air.
What happens if one charger is not putting out the exact same pressure as the other?
Air flows exactly like water. This is the same effect as pointing two garden hoses toward each other, until the two streams collide head on.
 
Now, picture angling the two garden hoses away from each other, until the two streams
meet at a distance and combine into one large stream with even more velocity....
 
O-ring seal provides a better transition from the intake tubes into the turbo housing
 
The plumbing from the two top chargers will be made equal lengths. This is very critical for even, consistent airflow.
 
 
 
 
 
ugly silicone connectors and hose clamps replaced with V-bands welded to the housings
 
 
o-ring seal is neat and easy to get on/off
