a 72mm should easily be worth 500hp.......a buddy of mine had a 60-1 and pushed 504hp on the dyno......no, i don't believe what he is saying is possible on a stock header......if that's what you are asking.......

yes thats what i'm talking about. he said he just used regular shorty headers, used the drivers side for the passenger, and the passenger side for the drivers side. he said he was able to bolt the turbo up to the header without any welding. he is giving me everything except the headers. can i buy just regular shortys and do what he did?

um, no.........you can't just flip headers and bolt on the turbo........when you use a single turbo on a v8, you need both header's to connect, hence a cross overtube. You may swap header side's, using mac unequal lenght headers, but you will need to cut the end off of both header's, and depending on which side you want the turbo to sit on (driverside or passengerside), that will be where you need to put on the turbo flange. The crossover tube will come from say the passenger side, under the front of the engine, and connect up to the backside of the turbo flange along with your driverside header. (they will both come together on the back of the turbo flange, both header's feeding the turbo...........let me know if that help's or if you need like a picture of the crossover tube.....

With all due respect, dont you think these are some of the issues you should have worked out and planned before buying the Turbo?, there is alot more to turbocharging then just the turbo.

Yes you can use the shorty style headers, but as previously mentioned...you need a cross over tube to connect both sides of the exhaust BEFORE the turbo, and one of the headers will need about 3 4-bolt flanges. One for the turbo, one for the other exhaust to come into, and one for the wastegate. Or you can just merge the exhaust together, and have a seperate tube off of that for your wastegate. This thread should have some good pics for you to look at.

Here's another link showing the pile of parts that come with the Hellion turbo kit. Click through their owner's photo gallery too, to get an idea of the piping that has to happen too. If you don't have serious time, tools, and fab skills, it will be a heck of a job.

Has anyone wondered what the condition of this turbo might be? If the guy selling it is saying it just bolts onto a regular old shorty, which we know is not possible then what else could be be telling stories on?
