Pic Request: Turbo + cooling
Wednesday, July 15, 2009 5:00 PM
Hey just trying to see if anybody preferably with a 2.4LD9 or 2.2 Eco has pictures of there turbo with the coolant lines going in and out of the turbo. Im kind of confused on how to do the routing to the thermostat housing and so on. Once I take my turbo stuff here soon I might as well add cooling lines to my turbo.

Thanks.

We have a line coming off the t-stat housing that goes to the turbo(the one that usually goes to the coolant reservoir), then the outlet goes to the reservoir. I will have jared take some pics!

the way my lingenfelter kit does it is there's a 'T' that goes into one of the rubber heater hoses for the heater core. i cant exactly remember how the other one is ran... ill have to go dig it out and see.



PFFT secret cams?! pm me if you want a real upgrade.

haha for like a sec i thought if he uses his heater core hoses it would be like a blast furnace in his car..

then i was like oh yeah he doesn't drive his car in winter so he would probably bypass his heater core.

You should! It keeps everything more on the cool side. Its really not all that bad to set up.

I am talking about the line that goes above the header.



On the turbo car that line is cut up by the t-stat housing. A hose runs from that to the turbo and then back to the coolant reservoir. Hope that helps

I machined a couple of Aluminum "T" fittings and tapped them for AN fittings. Put those in the ends of a new heater hose assembly and cut up the old heater hoses to make sure I could clear the turbo,header,wastegate (basically making the heater hoses about 5-6" longer). Than got some Banjo fittings from ATP Turbo

http://www.atpturbo.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=ATP-FTG-003&Category_Code=GTBB (I see they have some newer designs now that will make things easier) and ran -6? AN lines to the turbo.

EDIT: I guess instead of calling them Aluminum "T" fittings I should have called them "Splices" that where tapped to form a "T"...

The small hoes that runs from the water neck and into the back of the water pump is where you want to run your turbo off of. You also want a restriction in that line after you tee and before the lines come back, that way there is incentive for the coolant to go through the turbo with some considerable rate. I placed two -6an lines into the water neck, one straight into the turbo and the other I brought down to -5an and then both lines are then T'd back to a -8an line and into the water pump inlet. Keep in mind this is just a flow loop for the coolant in the engine to circulate while the engine is running and the coolant isn't exchanging with the radiator. Dont go through the heater core...honestly its the same line really, there is a 2 way thermal valve in there that allows hot coolant to enter the heater loop...just stay on the side that always has the coolant running thru it...which is that same return line to the water pump.

LMAO!! me either.. Thats why I asked if Gary will post under car pictures. I just may get rid of my heater hoses all together since I don't drive it in the winter anyway, and I have no a/c. I may just end up doing it in a similar way like Brandon did it. But i can not figure out how he connected that AN fitting and hose to the thermostat housing

That's why I tee'd in before the plastic "H" with the valve in it.

David,I'll try to get some pic's this weekend.
