Working on the inter cooler tubing today. And I made my self a use full tool. And the best part is that it only costed $10 bucks

Load in Vice


Insert tube


Tighten vice and rotate and you get this


It can accept any size washer and exhaust clamp so it will do almost any size tubing.

Hey on your intercooler pipe and the flange once in the vise did you use a pipe wrench and turn the pipe ?

Is this flange end necessary on non intercooled such as mine?

Great idea

Mine wont be running till end of Nov. Or at least that is what I am hoping for. Once I finish the cage - end of September. I will tear down, paint and powered coat. Then final assembly.

And what you do is clamp down on the vice then you release the vise, rotate the pipe a little, then re clamp. And repeat till you get all the way around. That is why I have those springs in there. That way when you un screw the vice it will spring open so you can rotate the pipe a little.
I got my idea form this.

I just wanted to make something that would be easier and faster to work with. Thats when I came up with the tool I did.

I would recommend it with any turbo set up. When you are running that kinda of boost it is easier to blow a pipe off when there is nothing for the clamp to grab. At least do it on the outlet pipes from the turbo to the intake.
To bad your not around the area, I would let you barrow it.

Not sure what you mean by going into.
If it means performance whys, I plan to do a new fuel pin and gov spring.
I took care of that dowel pin a long time ago.

I had a gsk 3000 and the difference in the engine was amazing , it felt like a different beast under the hood . How high are you going to go ? I was wondering more if you were going to stud the head or O ring it . I dont have a CTD anymore , but I sure miss the clatter .

I plan on going with a 3200 spring. And right now I dont have any other plans to stud or o ring it. I just want to get it running again. Maybe later on but I doubt it.

I dont blame you , when a project drags on it becomes less fun . Keep up the good work .
