Turbo and engine bay clean up….

Build012 1973 BMW 2002 SR20 085

With the bigger unknowns figured out it was time to fit the turbo. The turbo with the SR in stock form was a botom mount setup. With the steering shaft now in the way there wasn't much room for the turbo. So we bought a simple top mount cast manifold and put it up top. It's also nicer to look at...

We welded up the internal wastegate flapper and went to a 38mm external gate.

Once these things (and a couple more) were figured out the engine came out and we put a coat of fresh black paint on
