K27 turbo bracket

Hi there, I'm in a process to have a custom K27 specific turbo bracket produced.
Are there people interested? if there is enough interest I can set up production for this. It will be plasma cutted 4 mm steel with the 10 mm offset for the K27 body
Its going to be stainless steel 321. Pictures hopefully by the end of the week.

cheers Harold

I am interested.
When you can estimate pricing can you post the info?
I would suggest slotting the mounting holes at the engine cradle or making them slightly oversized to allow for some variablility in turbo location with the aftermarket headers out there. I know my turbo is not exactly in the right spot after installing my headers (too high).

I've done this as part of my K27 install kits. Mine has very little adjustment for junk headers as the turbo must locate in the stock position for everything it is attached to to fit perfectly using stock hoses and pipes.

Will a stock bracket intended to mount the stock 3LDZ work with a K27, with modifications maybe?

Mine did. I cut it right near the bend to the right of the part that bolts to the turbo, bolted everything in place and tacked it back together. Then I disassembled and welded it up good. Some slot the bolt holes but that wouldn't work for me (maybe my headers moved the turbo a bit).

Thanks. I was hoping that just slotting the holes would do the trick, but I can see where cutting and re-welding may be necessary.
I've been running without the mount all along, just letting the muffler mount suffice to hold everything in place. But still, there is a small amount of flex that a sturdy turbo mount would correct. Maybe when I get around to swapping out my 7006 for the 7200 I have, I'll look into modifying the mount.

Harold, check out what just popped up on eBay....what looks to be a home-made or seriously hacked up stock bracket. Sure hope you don't pattern your nice stainless bracket after this one.

Nope... I had heard the "slot the holes" story as well. When I got around to installing mine, it was clear that it would have to be cut and welded, as alignment was way off. All in all, pretty easy to do if you have basic welding skills. I wouldn't risk letting it hang for long... it'd be a shame to damage heat exchangers and such just because of that bracket.

No, too much effort for just one piece. I simply drilled the edges and cut out with the grinder, trimmed and finish it was
