Rear induction tube issue

Rbs are installed and I am having a Induction tube issue, I can get this to go on for nothing....it is not the bracket behind it....I have to literaly pry this thing to go and then it just pops off.....almost like it is not long enough? I may try removing the screws on the back to see if it frees up any play.

I had this same problem. Even got a new rubber piece and it still popped off . I gave up.
Next time I will use some Sort of coupler and put some clamps on it

Known issue with the rear tube on any stock housing turbos. I had it happen to me on my first set of test turbos, we made an aluminum bracket that goes onto the top motor mount bolt and holds the pipe on 100%, no questions no guessing. Every set of turbos we will be shipping will get one. Whatever you do make sure you get it on, because if it pops off you will suck something into the turbo. A couple cars we swapped turbos on had a piece of wedge shape plastic stuck behind the pipe against the firewall, it seems to hold it on pretty well if you have nothing else. Just use a big pry bar and hold the tube on and wedge the piece between it and the firewall and tap it in a bit with a hammer to make sure it wont fall out. Besides making a bracket this is all I can offer in a way of making sure you don't ruin your new turbos with something sucked out of the engine bay.

Well I figured out why the induction tube did not fit....I installed the gasket on the turbo 1st...induction tube pinched the gasket, it deformed and tube could not be put on. I did not notice this because my hands could not fit back there (it actually felt like it was bound )...I found out because my AEWESOME wife (who has actually helped with this install) saw this...Ii wasted 6 ours on a damn gasket LOL!!

NEVER put the gasket on the turbo...install it in the tube first!



I also bent the bracket so it can not slide off...it need reinforcment, so the bracket sits behind the tube falnge...great idea!

I was thinking of wedging something in there....but I figured it would just fall out...may wedge a piece of something in there.

Awesome man glad you got it figured out. Yes gasket into pipe, both gasket and pipe slide onto turbo. Sorry I should have specified. You are gonna love your car once you get the install done and get to drive it with the new turbos. Good luck with rest of install.

Sure they are being made right now. Once they are done, no problem. Send me a PM so I don't forget.
