IIRC the openings were 38mm. So, no.

Copied here to show what I did, and make it searchable for Google (remember general discussion does not show up on google results).
Laecaon wrote:I've got a really cool idea. I was putting together my intercooler pipes. Since I was having my welder at work weld for me, I needed a way to make sure the parts stayed indexed to each other perfectly. After hunting around on the internet and not finding what I want, I pulled some inspiration from some really expensive clamps.

The idea, use some cheapo hose clamps on each piece. Then weld a steel piece to both hose clamps.


Image

Anyways, I have done finished that piece now. Just need to take it to work for welding.

I had like 2, maybe 3 ways to do this piece, but I thought this was the most fluid looking and now just a bunch of 90s. Its also the shortest path for the air, so that is also good.

Sweet, how much for an intake pipe like that for the KA?

Probably cheap, I can ask my welder what he wants ( not his welding supplies). Not sure if you have pipe already, I think I have a bit extra.

Stuff!


New outer tie rods, mid 90s Altima. They are the longer ones. Should give me about 3/4" to 1" of thread engagement.

Image


Intake welded

Image


In car:

Image


Room in front of engine (ts a lot, or plenty for a fan)

Image


And finally, Planned MAF to turbo tube. I would really like it longer, but I cant find an elegant solution. I figure 2 90s ought to help, and I do see a fair amount of CAs with the maf super close to the turbo...

I dont even remember what I did during July... But I do promise things did happen.

Ill have to backtrack on the steering (not 100% done)

Anyways, I have updated my list of things I need to get done in the categories I am currently focusing on.

Image

Image


Here are two of the above mentioned intake ports. Yes its blurry. Hopefully they will be welded tomorrow and I can take a non blurry pic.
Image


Ill get a pic later... but I did get my BOV installed.

For everything that I got done, I didnt take any pics... which is weird because I kept wanting to share on here...

That would be cool. At this point, I think I will be on the road by Canby. My friends have a bet going on if I have it back on the road by some date in November... I would say I could do that... if I didnt just decide to take on the BMW engine overhaul, which will mostly consume funds, not time.


Anyways, some solid progress for the night!


IACV port welded on.

Image


And here is it in place

Image


BOV Re-circulation port welded on.

Image


And in place. Also you can see the BOV on the hot side pipe.

Image


I cut out and started bending a sheet of ABS. I used another piece of metal (not seen) to block/direct the flame/heat to localize it at the bend. Bends by hand really nicely.

Image


That resulted in my new Air box! I think it fits super well. It will be getting a lid (clear?)

I dont think I ever showed my final Sway bar brackets.

Image



Tacked a sleeve on the steering column to hold the bearing in place (didnt want to weld the bearing itself due to heat and grease and plastic...)

Image



Shaft collar...

Image



Slit the bottom of my steering column...

Image



And column is all one piece. That collar grabbed on tight, and its right over the bearing.

They joys of working in a machine shop. Make custom parts, access to coatings.

These are for my tie rods. 2024 aluminum. Free Type 2 anodizing.

Image


Bleh, I havent done too much, been kinda busy this week at work. I did order a new tool, and I think I have finally figured out how I am doing the Turbo coolant lines.
