The end result of John’s hard work are two waste gate dump tubes that fit snugly into place and just squeak by the steering column and frame rail. On another note check out our new Turbosmart wastegate position sensors. We’ll be data logging the information from these with our AEM AQ-1.
With the exhaust finished up, John turned his attention towards fabricating a new intercooler pipe for Project 240SX LSR.
One new intercooler pipe was required since we swapped to a fly by wire throttle body system from a VQ35DE which is longer than our original N1 throttle body. Previously, our intercooler was positioned so that a simple 90 degree bend could be cut from a U bend to produce the needed intercooler pipe. It was simple and required no welding at all.
The longer VQ35DE throttle body didn’t leave much room though and required a really tight bend so John again resorted to the wagiri yousetsu method.
