A-REG?
1983 aint it?

Turbo were launched in 1985 so he cant have a 1983 Turbo

i remember that UT on ebay, only had the 1 i think?

My old standard header tank split and spat all over the battery when the engine was running!

54 for a new plastic one

Re: alloy header tank

Hi oldskool, with your forge header tank that you have, are you still using the standard 16mm turbo return pipe and the 8mm radiator return pipe that connect to the tank?

I'm interested to know bcoz i want to replace these hoses with samco ones, and I dont want to find out when I get round to replacing my header tank with one of these alloy ones that the hoses are the wrong size...

Would b an epic fail

Re: alloy header tank

Thanks for that Louie, I'm 95% sure i got the bore dimensions right for those hoses in my last post 16mm pipe for the turbo flow return and 8mm for the rad sound right to you? I'm umm'n and are'n coz im not sure if the rad return should be 9.5mm?
tbh I cant see it making alot of difference just as long as the pipes are properly connected at either end job done!

Re: alloy header tank

didn't measure them - I only fitted the std one cos I didn't get my alloy one back.

there is a mk1 hose guide here... mk2 header is same comection wise.

Re: alloy header tank

thats interesting, because this guy reckons the pipe between the turbo and the header tank is 11mm... I'm sure I measured mine up as 16mm yesterday ... Its not cheap pipe so I'd really like to get this right, does anyone know the correct size this pipe should be for a mrk2 uno turbo?

Cheers
