    supporting turbo weight

    Just getting geared up to do a turbo setup on our shop rxp and was wondering what you guys do or whats in a full kit to support the tubos weight as the j pipe has a flexi joint and the turbo is quite far from the engine?
    We race this ski so it will be getting a pounding and don't want anything breaking due to vibration.

    Thanks for any input

    turbo

    thanks for the pics I was quite keen to keep the turbo as close to the engine as possible but only seen pics of the turbo on the end of the upturned j pipe before.
    The pipe that goes from the end of the manifold to the turbo i take its solid (no flexi) and water jacketed? can you buy the flared fitting and clamp or do you need to cut up a j pipe to make it?

    That turbo is not going anywhere! Is that a front motor mount you used?

    I think I'm the only one that didn't modify the stock j-pipe for use with the turbo. Mine is solid and I have 2 braces. See the pic's. You have to be careful where you brace it because you could actually make matters worse if you don't take into account a) relative motion (don't want to brace it to the hull) or b) relative thermal expansion.

    i made one way back when for the online store Turbo kit that i haad and it worked GREAT u could physically stand on the turbo with out flex! i still have this one and could copy it foranyone needing one to work with the store turbo kit as i bought extra pieces in case anyone wanted one! hit me with a PM if i can help! PERIOD!!!!!!!! only thing i intended to add to this was to add washers on each side where the eylet heim end gets thru bolted to the turbo bracket to take up the space on each side of it but thats easily handled! thats ALL stainless with rubber adhered to the base to go against the hull without wear on the hull as well! BET!!!!!!!!
