OK I’m no mechanic but I’m pretty sure there shouldn’t be a PVC pipe under the hood attached to your engine.
I like how he also has absolutely no exhaust whatsoever. Straight out of the turbo, and all that hot exhaust trapped under the hood is gonna go right back in the intake. Just what you need for more power. Good job! (sarcasm intended)
I’m trying to place what this is, I think it’s a 2.2 Mitsubishi under the hood of a Chrysler K-car from the 80s. If so, the thing will have a lot of other problems besides the turbo so a little plastic pipe shouldn’t matter.
J, it won’t run the turbo without the exhaust- obviously a work in progress. – as far as the PVC intake- I’m thinking we need to go with schedule 80… 🙂
If that is a k-car, that much pvc pipe and two 90 degree fittings probably doubled the value.
The turbo turbine is exposed, the system isn’t finished, they may have put the PVC on just to get it through a Dyno test before they fabricated the permanent steel piece.
that’s a chevy 2.2 motor. something like an old caviler, sun bird, sun fire. something like that.
Well, MustangGuy, the turbo is bolted to the manifold, so it will get the exhaust it needs to spool up. I’m saying there is no pipe to get the exhaust out after the turbo, therefore, it will be rather loud, and run rather lousy because the exhaust is just going to circulate right back into the turbo again.
But, if it is a K-car, then I agree, the value just shot up!
I’m pretty sure they are using the PVC for mock-up purposes… If not, then shame on them.
Yes it’s sure and it’s correct that the PVC pipe is under the hood 😀
@ Niel R – That is definitely not a K-car. And the 2.2 that was used in the K-car was a Chrysler engine, not a Mitsubishi. The 2.2 had both the intake and the exbaust manifolds on the back of the engine, and it was an OHC. So that is not a Chrysler 2.2
I hope that this is just a work in progress, with nothing hooked up to the outlet of the turbo, or the wastegate. It doesn’t look like there is enough room to even come close to shutting the hood on that mess.
Shows Whiggers that seen F&F too many times do exist !!
All that spray paint on the air cleaner should help with the fuel mix too.
I used to work in a lumber yard, we also sold home supplies like PVC pipe and you would not believe how many kids would come in wanting pipe to mod their cars because “I seen it on the internet”, most were driving Escorts and Cavaliers, nothing that required extra hardware to make it go faster
