thought you 360 and 312 guys might like this turbo manifold

Recommended Posts

puts the turbo up on top of the engine anyway. and under the hood  yes the exhaust is to the front  on the turbo as designed by IH but easily turned 180 if you wish

Is that manifold something that you are making, or is that off of something?

We build them;  is a close copy of the original and impossible to find cast manifold found on the DT 360 power units. By close i mean it bolts on the same and sets the turbo at the same spot.  Air flow is much better on the steel one and it has the port size of a truck head and lots of flow. Is necked down at turbo to create a bunch of velocity. Will have some performance results in next month or so.

Next one will be building  is to bolt onto a D-358 or 310

. We are getting all the original parts together tomorrow and going to the machine shop with it.

ps will be on display at Harrisburg this weekend.

When you do the D358, will it be like the stock manifold where you can install the adapter. I have an NA 826 with 8600 hours, so I don't want to turbocharge it just yet, but withthe right adapter, a turbo can be installed on the OE style manifold.

Ed.

About a year or so ago, there was a topic about this manifold was about to be produced. Riley`s or somthing like that was mentioned. Is this the final result ?

Sorry for all the lost time here, Been handling a bunch of auctions the last few months. Will try to answer a couple of these questions. Our deal and plan with Riley didn't suit their volume requirements and Pat was very interested and very gracious when the bean counters said it was not going to fly and offered to let us handle it on our own. But I could not gamble the 40K needed to start the ball rolling. So we went with what you see here because we can build them a few at a time and as ordered if they get too slow moving.

Sorry about things at Harrisburg but we were only able to make it for one day, had a great time, saw lots of friends and customers from the past! will plan to do better for next year.

The D-358 will be very similar to this one pictured here. Much more flow than the original, will probably have the bolt on neck but not for certain on that yet. Pretty sure the first one will be a weld on.  it is in the machine this week being carved out. so will be on a tractor before too long.

Joe Machado out of Rhode Island will probably be the first guy on the track with the 360 and the 358 is being built especially for him. Has a 310 that will run faster than fourth gear with ease on an old turbo manifold off of a logskidder w/ 358.  They are very restrictive and  bulky. The new one along with a tweak or two should get him into road gear.

 

Thanks for your interest.
