    Default Turbo stay brackets

    Why don't you work on making them for the turbos that don't have them. Along with provision for the heat shield.

    There are a lot of variables with creating a turbo stay and if you need one most of the time your setup isn’t anywhere close to stock. A custom stay is usually the best option. We could create one but it wouldn’t be cost effective for us or anyone else. With all the different turbo options and the couple exhaust manifolds out there we couldn’t really make a one size fits all. I will look into it though, and see if it can realistically be done for the right price.

    I am only concerned with 3. The stock 7MGTE, the Comp compressor housing, and the LIPP exhaust housing.

    Well, that depends on whom you are working with. What is needed is the studs like stock, then the stay could be easily produced.

    I actually was thinking about this the other day.

    I was thinking the only problem with a "universal" turbo stay would be length, right? Differences in manifolds, engines, etc..?

    So, I was thinking a large threaded rod.. Just throwing that out there!

    You would have to look at angle too. Depending on how high or low the turbo sits on a particular set up. The end user could probably try to use a different hole but a threaded rod would not be a fix all. However, that would work for a lot of people im sure. One thing to help end angle would be heim joints but even they can only make up for so much.

    Yeah, I so wish my Boss Jr had the stock bosses for the heat shield and stay. Makes passing smog so much easier when things are covered.

    I misstated the original post. I hope it is cleared up with the second. There is no provision for a turbo stay. I can get any piece of angle iron and drill holes in it. But there is nothing to put it on. There isn't a stud on the turbo anywhere to mount a stay. I don't have any ideas off the top of my head.

    What turbo are you using? My Boss has a stud for a stay. Not for the lower stay but for the upper stay and heatsheild stud that goes to the head. Did someone mention their boss turbo didnt have a stud for it? Mine is a boss sr if that makes a difference.

    Nick and I have Boss Jr turbos. They do not have studs for stays or heat shields.
