    Hmmm...seemed to work for me :D I searched under "BJ70 turbo" and got this thread which is a great one for you. Guys, nobody is trying to be mean here. It's just that there about 1000 threads with reems of info on just what you are asking. To re-hash the exact same topics over and over is of limited value for most. So if you search, read, then have specific questions that did'nt get answerd by the above method, post up!

    Everyone here is more than willing to help ;)

    welcome guys....

    wrong impression

    After reading what I posted it totally comes across wrong. There is a wealth of knoledge here in mud. I have found in my application there are about 4 viable options. Each with apparant advanteages and disadvantages. No im trying to get into the more technical side of things and source a turbo that way. We'll see where that gets me. Mud is a great place with great people. But no one can provide you with the One answer that is perfect for you app. Can provide backround and personal experiences thats all.

    Thanks again,
    Tyler

    Probably easiest is to the swap your 3B with a 13B-T. You will probably be able to get a lower milage engine too this way. Will probably cost more though then using any of the other methods.

    axt is the most common kit,

    denco is another viable option, call rob at Raddcruisers if you need to know about it.

    Another Turbo to consider that I am just learning about is Turbo-Glide. We are doing one on a 2H but I have heard they also offer one for the 3B. It is in OZ and they use Garrett turbo's (like AXT) however so far from what I have seen with the 2H it is a little better setup for input and output on the turbo. Also the price is about half that of AXT. I will post more on Trubo glide as we install. (Not taking anything away from AXT very good turbo kit).

    Cheers,

    Michael

    I have done several AXT turbos they are good and can give you good power, if you have any issues or questions I would be glad to help. A few tips I can tell you to start with, you are going to need to put more of a bend into the mandrel bent exhaust pipe that comes with the kit. If you have a muffler shop do the exhaust you might want to have them run it inside the frame instead of outside the frame rail. Also before you install it, get the gauges you are going to use, do it all at the same time.

    cheers,


    Michael

    I thought it would be necessary to fabricate the exhaust over your side to get a better fit remember our clutch and brake setup is for driving on the left hand side of the road. Not sure where the exhaust actually runs on the 3B , not many around here at all mostly in trucks and coaster buses. Have you looked at a 13BT they seem to go cheap here and are a lot better engine I am told.One just sold on Oz ebay and another is on now ,only problem is pick up only.Whats on USA and Canada.

    this is a turbo and manifold.

    The JDM models as well as the US/Canada models have the exhaust in the same place, the clutch and brake do not interfer with the stock porting.

    Ok, I must be missing something, the pictures on ebay show it in the engine bay of a BJ70. I have done both 40 and 70 with AXT and AXT will tell you the same thing but in reverse there kit is for a 70 series and lots of mods to put in a 40 series. My experience is some mods on 70 or 40 series with the AXT. I do like the that fact that the Turbo glide as the same setup as 13B-T for the exhaust they have a small cast piece that changes from horizontal to vertical to hook the exhaust into. Is that the piece they are saying is 350? BTW Jan just picked up a Turbo Glide for his 2H and including shipping and everything to USA it was 2k USD.

    Cheers,

    Michael
