I clocked my turbo as far as possible. I could get some more distance out of it but the built in bov runs into my intake / TGV. I already had to shave some off my TGV to get it to go as far as it is.

Maybe I'm missing something....
You are not missing anything.

Could you shorten it a little more, yes but for the amount of work it would be pointless. If you want it much shorter a rotated location would allow you to manipulate things a tad more easily.

Ya that's what I was saying a few posts back.... Rotated would allow a much shorter air intake, and a shorter turbo out to ic run. At least from what I've seen.

Im happy with the looks of it, and any improved performance is a plus too.

Stock location does limit you a little. Still, as mentioned above, if you clocked the turbo to save another foot, hell yea haha

I had a rotated turbo, but this is with AC like you.

That looks good. Is that a full race kit?

I just got an efr 7163 stock location. It has the integrated bov and bcs on the Compressor housing, which I was pretty excited about. Turns out the bcs is plastic, inlets/outlets and all, so I ditched that. Then, the damn bov prevents me from clocking the turbo more than about 2 o'clock. Lol. Complete fail.

Add to that the inlet on the turbo is 2.5 inches, and the offset couplers are either 2.4 or 3". Obviously I used a 2.4" offset coupler which I had to shoehorn on the inlet and now I have to loosen it up to clock the turbo just to change the bov spring. Damn thing is going to come off on me.....

End rant. Lol

How small is that section of pipe from the turbo to intercooler next to the radiator? Looks like you notched it pretty seriously there.

Runs right under the light into the core. Super short. Same on the other side.

Yes this is a Borg Warner EFR series turbo, the plastic WG housing held up just fine with Time Attack

Lol ok good!!! I was completely baffled you would have done all that work just to kill the flow as bad as that illusion looked. Lol
