Engine Mounting mods for larger turbos
Cut-away and reinforced mount for (longer) Garret T3 turbo
Strengthening l/h diesel engine mount when cut-away for larger (Garret T3) turbo...
see Parts - Modifications - T3 turbo for turbo manifolding that goes with this modified mount.
NB. The main loads on this mount are bending and torsion due to it's offset. It's important to retain adequate torsional stiffness, hence the torsion box design, clamped to the uncut shear web. Both torsion and bending loads are transferred into the box using 6 and 8mm bolts and screws, the top main plate is bent and twisted to fit fairly accurately the top of the original mount. Hard steel plate, about 1.6 mm gauge
NB. The installation requires a larger bore banjo manifold ( see here )
