View Full Version : single turbo question
09-10-2011, 08:50 PM
I have done some research about single turbos on sbc's granted almost all of them are in third gen f-bodies, but one thing I have noticed is that they are all (at least from what I have seen) are on the passenger side. The issue I see with that is clearence, almost all of them delete the a/c or they have to cover the lines with some kind of heat wrap. Why does nobody mount them on the driver side? Is it because of the steering shaft? Just doing some basic looking in my truck there seems to be plenty of clearance especially for a log style manifold. I can't imagine it would have anything to do with exhaust pulses or pressures because the engine will still fire the same way and the opposite side will still have to travel just as far. Any opposing views or people that have experience with this please chime in. These questions have been driving me absolutly nuts! :banghead:

Somewhat easier to fit a downpipe on the passenger side as u don't have a steering gear, steering shaft, and brake booster in the way.

From what I can see tho if you want to keep the a/c it would be easier on the driver side..... It makes sense but doesn't at the same time. Thanks for the input. I'm sure with some solid pre planning it would be possible.... Hmmmm the gears are turning now!

I know this is the turbo section, but I figure fuel pumps go together with turbos. Anyways, I supposedly have an Apexi R33 fuel pump, but It doesn't look like the pictures that I've seen. Mine is black and looks like the 300ZX fuel pumps. Did I get ripped off? What is the difference between the R32 and R33 fuel pumps? Does anyone have an accurate picture of the Apexi R33 fuel pump?
