Holy Cow The New Blackmagic Turbo Adapter
Shibby And I Designed This About 2 Months Ago. Thats How Long It Took To Get It To Me. This Part Will Mount To The Header Via Vband Clamp. The Turbo Adapter Is 100% Waterjacketed. I Havent Drilled Them In Yet. It Will Retail For $495.00 In The Store. And They Are On There Way To Me. The Turbo Must, Must Be Supported By A Bracket. We Are Still Finishing The Down Pipe.

Looks nice were is the wastegate getting routed? Back into the exhaust or external? Thanks

Looks good. I likey!
Might as well design a turbo-support bracket system, and sell it WITH the pipe, so as not to chance it getting done by some hodge podge bracketry setup. I don't think you want to deal with that kind of he-said, she-said crap. Maybe utilize those bolts from the old SC housing or something?

OH PS I WILL HAVE PUMP ADAPTERS NEXT WEEK. IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT STILL.

Yes, I have a SD pump, nozzle, turn nozzle, and not sure what else. I havent' got a prop yet. I have both length driveshafts, and can sacrifice them to the testing Gods.

I was speaking directly of the RXP/RXT in regards to support. I figure a bracketry system, keeps folks from doing some fandangle system, that may, or may not work.
Have you come up with a way to isolate the SST manifold from the aluminum head? Gasket, or something like that?

the external wastegate dumps back into the downpipe after the turbo...
can also accomodate internally wastegated setups by not integrating it into the head pipe.
the pipe with the turbo and wastegate attached are my components from my ski bolted to the prototype mock-up...
have yet to fit the final product that just arrived to jason today... should be doing so shortly i believe...
in my particular ski, i have an independent set of motor mounts supporting the whole turbo and exhaust system.... the GPR is easy to work with in this regard...
in the seadoo hulls, i'm going to recommend that the motor mount brackets on the cases are utilized to support the turbo so the whole setup torque rolls together on the same mounts rather than independently... i may like to see a flex coupler integrated... we'll see how things get when it's closer to the exhaust tips
