    What turbo support for BTs etc

    I haven't made anything for mine, athough I do keep thinking about doing so?

    Suppose it all depends on the strength of the mani

    I had wondered if it could also put strain on the mani when it expands although it will be minimal?

    Don't normally bother... stainless steel manifolds move all over the place.. yo would have to make the support move with everything too else its more likely to add to the problem than provide a solution..

    Mine just hangs off the mani... Stacey, yours will be man enough as it is ;P

    The TSR does feel pretty manly by the fact it weighs as much as a cast mani

    Yeah you'd expect the TSR manifold to cope for that kind of money...

    I remember the cossies use supports that hang the turbo using rose joints to allow it to move somewhat.

    i think its more appropriate for tubular steel manis rather than cast.

    if you are contemplating the relentless tubular, then a support is mandatory.. I welded a lug to the 2871(cn) thing of samb and lightly rebent the stock k04 support bracket to pickup off it.
