I have a 24valve...

I have a 24valve 1998.5 cummins. Id like to put a holset hy35 turbo instead of the Chinese turbo that was on it when I bought it. But when I went to install the turbo, it bumps into the water line the runs along side the block with the brace that holds on the waste gate

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any leaks lately?

294000 miles but replaced motor and tranny

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Turbo?

How can I tell

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Turbo yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just tried to install an hy35 that Im told is the correct turbo because it came off a 2001 and also fit a 1992. the only thing I can guess is that the exhaust manifold is incorrect angle, or distance away from the block

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

What is the danger or concern with removing the silencer ring on the turbo, as far as potential damage

I'm on an iPhone I don't see a paperclip

i got the image. have you tried turning the turbine or compressor housing to see if it clears. also you can try to bend but NOT BREAK the water lines so i can clear

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

you can also turn the middle of the turbo when loosening the housings

Your talking about loosening the compression ring and rotating? Or unbolting the 3-4 bolts and clockwise rotation or vise versa?So I have an after market hx35. Is there a kit I need to buy to install it? If so any suggestions.

first try the compression ring and rotate the compressor and turbine housings to see if it clears. havent heard about any install kits sorry

Ok I'll take a peek. That will change the adjustment on my waste gate tho won't it?

no because you are just moving the housing.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
