I have this posted in the 2nd gen area as well, but i figured since this is more than likely a 1st gen turbo ya'll can help me out a lil bit better...

so i just bought this turbo for a good price, its an hx35(4036617) with a 14cm exhaust housing (my stocker's compressor wheel has been culprit to "dirty air" and the fins are way to rough and starting to get chipped and egts are rising)
--so my question is what is used on this style turbo and where do i get whatever i need maybe just an elbow thing to clamp on? to then reuse my downpipe? i plan on rebuilding it and cleaning it up real well before installing, all i know is that my 4inch downpipe on my stocker wont work, there is no elbow like that on this one..so what do i use :confused013:

btw i have seen the 4 inch downpipes from source automotive, but i really dont wanna pay 200 some bucks for something i dont really need if i can get maybe an elbow or adaptor, etc. thanks in advance guys:thumbsup:

You have the stock turbo from the '97 right?

You can transfer the cast elbow and v-band clamp to the new one.
Ya..You just need the cast elbow that clamps to the housing.. Then you will need a 2nd gen dp with a flange on it.. Then you will be golden.. I picked up a Dp from this place pretty cheap.. Under 100 bucks shipped.. Give them a call..

yes i currently run that, my 97 stocker, but im fairly sure that the elbow is attached to the plate that covers the back of the exhaust housing, but i did find this and it may be what i need so i could just get an hx-40 downpipe:confused013: but id still rather find something like an elbow that would use a V-clamp and reuse my existing 4 inch downpipe..if there is anything like that available

The stock turbo should have the removable elbow. The 24v's had it built in to the backing plate. If you have that one, you will have to swap ex. housings or find the elbow. Cummins has them.

Either that is an H1C off a first gen, or its a non dodge turbo. It is non wastegated, which the HX35 was not on the Dodge motors. And, that exhaust housing is huge, like 21cm huge.

Now, you should be able to swap the exhaust housing off your old turbo onto this one. You have the option of either pulling the compressor housing off and drilling and tapping it on the flat, circular boss on the discharge for a boost fitting for the wastegate or running a boost line from the intake manifold over to the turbo to actuate the wastegate. Then, you can still use your stock downpipe and be out nothing in cost.
