Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

Well finally all moved in and in the warm side of my new shed. 5 bays fills up fast :O I am hoping to do some plumbing this winter. Decided to ditch the cast manifolds as they would have had a weird upward jog i didnt want to deal with. for $120 these turbo headers look pretty darn good. I think I might wrap them as its not worth coating them since so cheap. looking to get 2.25" SS x-over and 3ish inlet aluminum. need to find a intercooler that will fit.

No idea why it rotates the pictures everytime

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

Nice to see an update. How well do the stock plug wires fit with those new headers?

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

I ended up ditching them headers and trying my hand at making a log manifold. The chrome ones were just too high and forward for my liking. have about 80 in sched 40 tube. I have confirmed i am not the best fabricator and rush things but they should work fine.

Initially started the build with elbows but compound angles kicked my ace and i went with straights. I 110v mig'd the joints against my better judgement. I will be TIG'ing the rest thats for sure. Also have some grinding to do on the through holes in the main tube. Advice to others would be get the damn hole saws. I didn't.

Other updates were air bags on all four corners and drive angle set with 2 piece shaft. I think in about -3 on the engine and the 14 bolt is up 6deg with my first shaft 5-6 deg down.

Where did this crossmember come from? "IFS" is an unfortunate brand name for a crossmember - makes searching kind of impossible

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

well I finally can see some progress after being stagnant. I went back and forth many times on which route to go. I didnt like the header I made. I ended up using the Chinese ones that should flow better, just have to add a nice strong brace. got the hot side almost finished. ignore the poor welds. rushing and shaking dont make them pretty.

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

I have always wondered about those headers. They look really nice. Just FYI you can find a 90 degree bend like the one you make for pretty cheap on a few different websites.

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

They have them that "short"? I wanted a very tight radius so it didn't hang the turbo out further than already is. I really couldn't find anything. oh well now when it rusts out I will have to prob redo it anyway.

The headers seem decent. flange holes are way off on two of them but will work now.

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

Little update. trying to assemble everything. everything seems to be off by just enough to piss ya right off.... oh well figure it out later.

cold side started.

turbo is so close to the wall i may have to make a sleeve in it or something hideous..

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

holding it up there it appears I will have to shave the horizontal folded pieces that go to the rear of the truck on the oem bezel. I am hoping it is not much but the way things have gone.... haha not sure.

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

the picture of the intercooler in the grill support panel just looks like it will be all in the way of the grill.

Re: 1964 C20 Turbo LQ4 Build

Week off helped but should have focused more on truck . cold almost dont hot side darn near done. Need tube for WG, maybe another support for downpipe and then wrap it up. I am so sick of welding pie cuts, especially in this heat lately.
