Default Oil line problem fix....now a BIG BIG problem

to everyone...thanks for you help on the oil line question i have....

but lucky me has encountered another problem.....the up pipe is about a inch short from the headers.....

i am running borla headers and from my understanding, there direct replacements of the stock ones right? or are they shorter then the stock ones?

from the looks of it, i may have to have a center piece made to compenstate for the difference....

any suggestions?

thanks,

thre's no reason for the pipe to be short are you sure you didn't have an adapter for a kit for an automatic>?? the auto trans is not as wide and usually has some time of spacer plate for the downpipe/turbo brace. does this ring a bell??

If it is short you can bring it in to the muffler shop and have them cut and extend it, if it have a straight section on it.

i just find it hard to believe it's short, something is off in the kit, but i could be wrong.

i didnt think about it the tranny part...i do have a auto....

i have access to get a extension made but i was hoping to have it done by yesturday and was hoping that i was doing something stupid

we tried taking the headers down and bolting the up pipe to that and putting it back on but that was a no go......

at first i though maybe the headers were different length from borla to the stock but now the auto vs. 5 speed sounds more realistic.......

Did you compare your after market headers to the stock ones when you installed? Just curious to see if there was a difference. Also what kind of up-pipe do you have.I know when I installed my Vishnu up-pipe it was at least an inch shorter than the stock one. So what I'm thinking is,when they designed your aftermarket headers, they were doing it with a stock up-pipe length in mind and IF you have an aftermarket one(up-pipe), it may be just short enough to create a problem with header attachment. What I would try is, loosening the up-pipe(on the top side) as much as I could without taking the bolts completly off the studs. Also, I would loosen all the turbo brackets as much as I could. This may give you just enough play in everything to get them to match up.

Seriously... do NOT have an extension made.

The problem lies in the turbo support bracket... modify that. You want the turbo to be where it should be, and to modify the ONE part that is screwed up rather then the 3+ parts that will be screwed up if you just make an extension.

there is no turbo support bracket

there really isnt any other way unless you make a new up pipe to adapt for the auto tranny

the position of the turbo is what im worried about....i'll find out monday what going to kick or not

I had to cut the up-pipe and weld in a 3inch piece of pipe... the turbo rests almost against the side wall on the engine bay, so I used radiator hose to make a pad, and it has held up just fine. the auto tranny is much wider than the manual...

ah yes i had it backwards the 4eat is 2 inches wider then the manual. Apologize for the mistake. but there must be SOME kinda of bracket bolted to the trans making your exhaust short....i'd like to see pictures.
