Turbo Fit

Hello:

I received my second HO last week along with it's turbo.

I noticed that the turbo unit isn't a very tight fit into the ports (at least from my perspective).

For those of you with the turbo, how 'snug' does your turbo fit into your HO?

Splotto, are you referring to the point where the turbo ports connect to the base enclosure port flares using rubber seal?

Once the carpet grip is placed in between the turbocharger and base enclosure, the next thing to check for is air leaks. If you don't hear any air leaks coming through the part where the turbo connects to the base enclosure, then you should be fine.

Thanks

That is what I am referring to.

Ok. I will check it. It just seemed less secure then what I was expecting.

Thanks,

Once you have the turbo lined up pull the box forward so the box doesn't hang off the back of the sub. It should line up pretty even with the sub and the rubber seals make a nice tight fit.

Hello:

The tubes line up perfect. That wasn't an issue for me so much as the 'snugness' of the seal.

It seems to be working fine with no 'leaks' so I guess it's ok.

Just an FYI if you do ever notice a leak pulling the box forward moves the tubes into the ports for a better seal.
