Default Custom Rotated Kit?

Anyone have any details on how to go about building my own rotated set

up? What measurements to take? What kind of bends I might need to

make and at what degree? Which way is most efficent? What angles can

and can't I place the turbo at? My current set up is FP green with Tomei

up pipe and Indivia downpipe. My new turbo that I will be purchasing is

the GTX3076R/0.82 V BAND. Any pointers or help would be great.

Thank you.

if you are going to attempt to build your own rotated kit and you don't have any idea of what measurements are needed and what bends are needed then I suggest you do a whole hell of a lot of reading about fabrication in general. Or just buy a pre-made rotated kit and save yourself the headache

I'm going to have to agree with AREA1320. If you have ask such questions, then you surely do not have the correct fabrication equipment to complete the project.

That said, I always place turbo first and build in all directions from there. Generally speaking, turbo oil drain angles should be kept to about 10-15 degrees max. Angles of pipe cuts cannot be determined until turbo placement is decided on.

Position turbo, now connect point A(exhaust manifold) to point B(turbo). Do the same with the downpipe now. Fairly cut and dry process.

Garrett website will have do's and dont's on turbo angles,etc...
