Cold Side Piping

It's been a few years since I've come across it, but I could have sworn there was a guy running 5.0 DIY TT, and he used PVC (or something like it) piping on the cold side of the system. Is this possible, and if so what pipes can be PVC, and is there a speical type of PVC to handle these air temps and pressures?

Thanks.

I think there are people using pvc on the cold side. The air temp is not really going to be a problem. Just keep it away from the hot side. The pressures are not really that great. I doubt anyone using pvc for the cold side is going to be running super high pressures.

Thanks, that will make my DIY job much easier, I'll only be running 10psi anyway and I have no plans to run more...

If you use the sch 40 PVC it will take 10 pounds easy.

Thanks, and is that stuff easy to find, in different sizes, and with 90*, 45*, etc. bends? Will I be able to use PCV right up to the turbo, just like a steel pipe?

Thanks a bunch.

You would have a connector up to the turbo anyway so no direct contact. Should be fine. The only thing is the cold side stuff is easier to make than the hot side, so why not use mild steel? You don't even need to weld it if that is a problem, just use connectors. Of course that will drive the price up. The other thing is to just get your setup up and running with the pvc and see how it goes than if need be replace with steel.

Just a little update on the coldside lsince I've managed to get 99% of my coldside done. I know I'm gonna get flamed for it by some people, but like most of the project I'm doing this cause it was cheap, within my abilities, and because it will work. I'm using 2 inch PVC piping on the inlet side and 3 inch on the outlet. All I need is one more 90* coupler for the inlet and my upper to show up so I can finish fabbing my outlet.


sorry for the size, i had the camera on the wrong setting
