Rb26 Lobster Back Twin Turbo Pipes


trick
 Share

Recommended Posts

Ive been looking at twin turbo pipes for months and months. they range from the nismo $2500 kit to the cheap,thin (Mod city)$300 kit.

Nothing reasonably priced and good quality.

So i decided to make a kit with a mate (The welder)

I have used 80mm x 3mm and 60mm x 2mm aliminium, lobster back style.

Ive made sure thay there is nothing to modify and the std airbox/air intake fits. Ive designed it for a R34 GTR, but id imagine it will fit any RB26

Ive also made sure there is a lip at the joins so the silicone doesnt blow off.

there was plenty of time spent designing not to mention the time to weld it.

this one was the first, a prototype to make sure it fits and did what it was supposed to do.

please feel free to tell me what you think and any improvements i could make, etc

mike

+1 Good effort

but imo, you should spend the money and get the proper thing, only b/c you have a 34 GTR.

Nengun has these for about $1600 or cheaper through LukeENR

"proper thing" ?

Because it has a brand name on it?

Some of the best pipework I have ever seen is "home made"

Plus, lobster back is so f**king cool.

Nice work mate

thanks for the input guys, this one is the first (prototype)the next one will have smoother curves with a more consistant bend piece sizes.

ANDZ, i didnt buy a kit for that reason they are $1600+, also you cannot fit the std airbox/intake panel and i want to keep the bay looking fairly std looking.

i totally agree the best stuff is made in someones shed, custom all the way.

MIKE, the lobster back pipes in the pic look great, those consistant pieces are what im after, but most of the gain to be had is changing the std twin turbo pipe, creating better flow.

im starting my second pipe this week and will post up pics on the 2nd, improved set

cheers mike

Yah polished, smoother curves would be a lot better

you can polish them, and then run the tig back over the welds on a medium heat (not actually melting the metal) and get a nice uniform blue effect again ;)

lobsterback FTW! shows off cool as f**k workmanship and plus it looks different.
