    Hey,

    I'm new to the forum. Thanks for having me. I'm doing this from my phone so let me apologize for any mistakes.

    I'm trying to install 50 trim turbo on my eclipse. I have a 2g head and a 6 bolt block. I have a t3 turbo header to go with the t3 turbo flange. My problem is a fittment issue. When trying to bolt the turbo to the header the turbo hits the block and causes the turbo to not be able to bolt to the header. It looks like I could have the flange on the header cut off. And welded back on at a bit of an angle to allow the room I need to fit the turbo. I'm just curious if anyone knows of a better or easier way of fitting a turbo of this size? Any info is welcome.

    I attached some photos of the turbo and header. I'm not sure if the will help.
    Thanks

    You can get a spacer to go between the head and the exhaust manifold (probably the easiest thing), or have an angled spacer between the turbo and manifold.

    I won't comment on the quality of those parts though. :D

    Yeah the turbo is a cheap one to help me figure out if this is the way I want to go. I have plans on upgrading when I figure out the exact setup I want for a long term set up. Do you have any links for a t3 spacer or angle spacer? So far I can't find one that has a t3 flange on both ends.
