I've been trawling through the threads looking for ideas on modifying my 1.9 16v jtd's induction.I'm thinking about using stainless steel pipe(i'm a tig welder and can get it formed into different radius's and all welded and polished seam free).Has anyone got pics of how a say cda kits pipework sits to see how it all comes together as i'm not sure how the intake parts all fit.
In the engine bay all i can see is the air box taking it's feed from somewhere behind the grill,it then goes through the air box to a pipe that looks like it's got a resonator thing on it and then to the turbo through a pipe that's a 90 degree bend,the whole system twists and turns, after that i dont know(the weathers been to bad to get under the car and take the guard off),i think it goes from the turbo to the inter cooler then to the engine.
Can i replace all the pipes with stainless ones.
What size are the pipes
From the air filter to the turbo do i keep it straight and short or long as possible
Am i better using silicon hoses
Do i need a cold air feed
Where is the intercooler sited
A youngster at my work has a turbo nova(sad i know)and he thinks straight pipe work and solid hoses especially between the turbo to the intercooler to the engine,so theres no expansion,are the way to go.
I think thats it,i know it seems daft when i could just buy a cda kit but i like doing thing different and like the challenge of making a one of system.
Hope some of you guys can help
