Hi all.
I've got an 80 but now the proud owner of a 4x4 coaster. It came naturally aspirated but I'm turbocharging it.
I've got the factory manifold to suit a CT12b turbo which I believe the Prados had but I'm in need of some little bits. ..
I need the piping on the turbo that supplies coolant and the air intake elbow to the turbo.
I would also be interested to know if a 3" dump is available for these .
Can anyone help.

The old Nissan bus was near finished when i Found the 4x4 so the Nissan is going.
got the gearbox reconditioned for the toyota had it installed and the engine wouldnt fire due to the injector pump. Because of the location it’s an engine out job so I figured it’s a good time to turbo it.

You should find a stainless flange to have 3" dump pipe made up easy enough

I think the turbo is oil and water cooled .
Hi Shane. I have to take the oil for the turbo from some existing plugs in the block and drain to a fitting put in the sump.
I think I just need someone who has a scrap turbo to take the coolant pipes off. Brilliant I'll hunt down a flange and find someone to fab it up.
Cheers for the help.

Ebay used to be the place because i think Supra's or the MR2 used the same turbo but a quick look says none available now .

The gasket is a template so im sure i could make one if i messed about all day with a grinder and a drill , pro steel cutters will do it for fun in lunch break .

Cheers Shayne, I'll stick with the original plan of having it cut.
Sorry, In the end i bought a manifold from a hilux surf just to move things on. If you're getting one cut PM me the price and i'll chip in towards the costs.
My bus has turned into a bit of a money pit and I'm paying others to do what I'd normally do myself as I'm trapped where I am due to Covid restrictions

No worries and will do.

Spoke to overland cruisers today and they said that there's more UK demand for the 1HD turbo than 1KZ hence no off the shelf flanges.
