Using Gorans method I have adapted a system using the rubber elbow (rotated 90deg). No room to fit anything between the hose coupling down to turbo inlet.
I have leaks everywhere. My compressor could not pressurise the system initially. It is a testament to the turbo it actually made boost at all. Some of the leaks are understandable - like the inlet manifold/injector housing seals. Several leaks in this area. But the weirdest one came out under the fuse box up front. An open end of plastic tube like used for the windscreen washer lines. How/why that is hooked into my boost system, I have no idea. Suspect it may be connected to my banjo nipple thing where Goran has the disc unit, and I don't (mine has obviously been removed). But why would it bleed to atmos?
This will keep me busy for a while. My compressor can now get to 0.5 bar. Still lots of leaks to get at. Aren't turbos fun?
