No worries, not long until summer!

Both turbine flanges are now bolted up. I'm going with Nordloc washers and cap head screws. Any suggestions what to use as an anti-sieze in the threads?

What is good for such extreme temp applications? Any suggestions?

Very nice self-made stub pipes Matt!!

If you got yourself a GT28RS60, then I am jealous! That must be the best all round turbo around! Well done!!

Thanks Wally,

They were very easy to make! ..wasted a great pair of F-pipes, 1.5" tube ovaled in a vice and the cast stock part lapped for the O-ring and blended to the new pipe before welding then polished smooth.

The 'bo I got is 739548-5 on this page exactly:

I still need to get a funky adjustable actuator, any ideas?

Really struggling to go beyond 2" with the exhaust tonight :(

The 7/16"-24 45deg flare tube nut for the oil feed was a swine to find.

+1200C sounds pretty good indeed!

I know Jake is fond of Milk of Magnesia for an anti-sieze; I'm not sure if it holds up well in those sorts of temperatures. I do recall him saying something about using it on some parts of the jet engines he used to work on...

Wow indeed, that's that department in order! It's good how the ingredients tell you what is not in it 8)

M8 Nordloc washers and Belzona, problem eliminated!

Good call on that, I'll look after it. :wink:

Didn't even see the garage today, could of done 4 hours on the 411, but just enjoyed the sunshine :shock:

I have used copperpaste with good result, I haven't used it for a long time though. Just go to your local hardware store and ask them for advice!

nordloc is a very nice!!!

We use it on the race car, before we had to fasten all bolts for the compressor each round, now we don't need to worry about them 8)

Ohh.. and here is the race car.. a little off topic ;)
