I recently acquired #537/1000, the previous owner put an ebay turbo and exhaust manifold. I took those off in the attempt to replace with better quality items. Ive spent the last several months gathering and collecting pieces. Almost have everything together to hear her breathe again, but the issue I am currently trying to solve, with no luck, is the turbo connector pipe, the little 3 inch-ish pipe that DSM guys generally refer to as the 'j' pipe. I want to keep stock radiator fan and the turbo I purchased is a factory Mitsu turbo from a low mileage 1G Eclipse. however the connector pipe I received with the turbo throws into the stock radiator fan. I need a connector pipe to go over the exhaust manifold, does anyone make such a piece or am I searching in vain??
thank you Jake
