View Full Version : FS: 90 deg 2.5 inch silicon bends for frontmounts

05-24-2005, 12:08 PM
heys guys - I have 2 , possibly 3 x 2.5 inch 90 degree bends ( with 10 inch 'arms " ) left over from my front mount swap . They are brand new , the big sections - not the little guys

had em left over after i found i needed to go 2 inch off the turbo but they are perfect for the intake side if you do them like i have mine !

looking for $55 bucks each for them . ( retail normally for 65 - 70 dollars each )

Also have a have few 3 inch and 4 inch or so sections of straight 2.5 inch piping - good for joining straight sections ..

if sold as a lot - ill see what sections of 2.5 inch stainless pipe i have left over to chuck in to help aid on the constriction of the intake pipe.

pics available if needed

If anyones interested - leave me a note - Stu

got any 70mm straight silicon joiners?

05-27-2005, 03:31 AM
no only as listed - 2.5 inch which is about 63 mm ..

Why would you be using 70mm pipe ? thats like 2 and 3/4's inch

05-27-2005, 05:13 AM
these are fairly flexi arn't they? as in they arn't strict 90deg bends yeah?

05-27-2005, 08:58 AM
yup thats right - they have a bit of /flexibility bend in them - thats the reason i used them for some of the bends over welded pipe .. you can bend them to nearly 45 deg. but of course you make a kink that would cause restriction , though 5-15 deg difference woulsnt effect them all that much

They aslo take out a lot of the shake from the engine - so hopefully the IC core wont be vibrated about too much

05-31-2005, 09:04 AM

my new intercooler has 2.75' inlet and outlets. I'm running 2" piping and im going to get the ends of the piping flared.

Just off hand, what size is the inlet diameter on the TB? ( 2.5-3)

05-31-2005, 09:23 AM
both lance and i Are using group A inlet adaptors which take a 2.5 inch staibnless pipe withouty any fuss

if yours id still stock St185 - likelyhood it is about 55 or so mm - you'' have to run with either a 2 inch ish section or flare to suit

what does toyota charge for these inlets?
i'm thinking about ordering the one that ATS makes.

06-01-2005, 09:06 AM
So the inlet diameter at the tip is the same as the ats porduct,except the factory toyota one "funnels' down to a smaller diameter correct?

And the diameter at the tip is 2.5"? i roughly measured it on my car just then and it seemed to be about 3" :?

06-01-2005, 12:35 PM
Yup stuey, send us a pricing shipped (along with that adapter) ill take the lot.

06-02-2005, 03:29 AM
Ok rich - did you want some 2.5 inch stainless as well ?

i have enough left over to do the pipe down the front of the radiator if you do the setup like mine - otherwise - ill send up without any steel ( no charge for the steel of course - i have no use for it otherwise )

06-02-2005, 08:27 AM
yo stu what price u after for them...very interested in them....


06-02-2005, 09:22 AM
sorry nezza - rich got in first - ill give him the total - and if hes not able to sort it - your next in line

06-02-2005, 09:38 AM
Stu, what ever you have left over from your setup, ill take.

Grab me on IRC.

06-14-2005, 10:54 AM

06-14-2005, 11:06 AM
coolness :) i hope it got there well - and i hope you appreciate mitre 10's finest paper shredded packing material ;)

heheh ! :)

hope it helps mate - keen to see how you do your FMIC

06-14-2005, 11:34 AM
yup mate, shouldn't be much longer, just fighting for time, to get it all fitted up.

Can't get the gearbox on at the moment..

That GroupA inlet is very nice:)

06-14-2005, 11:48 AM
handly little piece of rubber isnt it :)

the size REALLY helps the whole thing come together ..

my top pies are off getting all the pipe fittings welded on atm - then early next week i should have the setup complete to go :)

not far now either - looking forward to having her back in my hands - as the supras growing tedious on me atm - especially in the wet

as i've said over msn, ill be doing my piping similar to wyldies setup. Just sussing it all out now. I think ill do it the same time i put the engine in.

06-14-2005, 12:18 PM
prolly a smart idea to do - its a pain in the arse working around the engine bay
