    You know how I tell who at FEOA is intelligent and who is a moron? By their ability to construct sentences in proper english. Going by that standard, Neuman and OneGimp. . . well, you can finish that one.

    2 reasons to get the manifold changed. #1 as stated previously. #2 if you have a stock ride height for your car your going to be close to losing your downpipe and exhaust, it will be very close to the ground, forget speed bumps, or lowering your car. Its possible with how much lower your dp is that you could actually end up ripping it and your turbo off from hitting the ground, I suggest killing 2 birds with one stone and just getting the manifold fixed............get a custome stainless one made or something. that one looks ugly next to the turbo anyways :D

    Hahahaha. Dude... you have NO IDEA.

    You are seriously the most ignorant, cocky prick I've seen in a while. You're just a technician. You're a guy who uses parts and puts it together, but you don't know the physics and the principles behind anything. And I've got plenty of ammunition.

    Alright... here's your first task. I want YOU to design and build a turbocharger that can be used on the 1.8L BP engine.

    Oh... that's right. There's a little thing called MATH. It's something that you failed in high school because you were too busy working at McDonald's to help pay for your absurd little car projects. Without math and engineering, you wouldn't even have that stuff to play around with. That's the most ignorant comment I've heard on this forum. You need to sit down and shut up. I'm sick of listening to your ego. Nothing you're using would work if it weren't for all that "theory" you're dissing.

    edit: I still hate everybody - except james <3

    Denis has one of the fastest GT's around, deserves a little respect. He's no nOOb.

    Every one know's that the oil return need's to flow down hill from the turbo to the oil pan above the oil leval. If not, the oil back's up and you blow out your oil seal. Nothin new here. Oil return pump's are a band aid for a poorly placed turbo and is just more crap to go wrong.

    Ok, I'm sorry. I truely am a lonely burger flipper and I'm makeing all this up to post on the inter net so I can get attention to fill my empty life. I was wrong about every thing and because I can't use a calculator like you, so I will never understand how a car works. I will leave all futur tech things up to you because you are so much better then I could ever be at car knoledge. For this I am sorry.

    If you guys don't kiss and make up soon, I'm gonna race down there in my rusty sh!tbox and hang you both up by your ears. I don't know about Onegimp, but I've seen a pic of Siragan and I'm sure my wife can bring him to his knees with nothing more than an icy cold stare (99 pound weakling) :lol: .

    You're both needed here. This fued diminishes the value you guys bring to the table.

    C'mon, please. Somebody play some sixties love music.

    heh ... i think that onegimp knows a thing or two about turbos .... although opinions may differ and that is fine. i think a little respect is due to everyone. we are all here trying to help out, let's do that instead of argue. share your opinions and knowledge about particular subjects, but let's not get off topic! ;)

    thanks guys.

    Once again, Slapyo sweeps his wand of diplomacy and all is well in FEOA-ville. I've said it before - you should run for office, man.

    SLAPYO for PREZ...SLAPYO for PREZ...SLAPYO for PREZ. Hey, Ross Perot ran. It's not so far fetched :lol:.

    Engineers are all fine and dandy, but when it comes down to it, it's actually a technician who interprets the engineer's scrabblings, fixes the mistakes, and puts the design together in a prototype that works in the real world, not just on paper. There's a saying I like, that is 100% true. "In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is."

    You need theory to spur development, but you need experience to put theory into practice.

    I'm sure somebody in the previous pages deserves this, so here you go. it just makes me laugh, because I'm a Lewis Black fan:

    Customescortgt doesn't need a bunch of complicated workarounds shoved down his throat, he needs a way to make his setup work that's not going to blow it up in a short time. His initial theory was put into the design, and Denis just pointed out a major flaw in it, that's all.

    Lewis Black Rulz!!!

    and just to let everyone in on my 2 cents worth...again...lol


    I have been around these different boards for awhile...although not really on FEOA but for the past couple of years...heck I was on when the only one I could find was the "Ford Escort GT Performance Page" I think that is the right title...in 97

    I do not claim to know everything and will fully admit that my knowlege of the turbo setup is limited...however I have seen Denis' work on the ERDT board and can say that he has been around the block and back with turbo apps...

    I will also say this though...I left the ERDT board for being treated the way that Denis has been treated on here

    it truth yeah Denis can be a little rough with his wording..but the point is there and easy to find...

    FWIW, Denis had a turbo system built on his Escort before most of you guys here even owned an Escort. That is a fact!

    Design a turbo system, he already has. Long time ago.

    Sweet turbo pics, I hope you resolve the issues mentioned.

    My favorite resolution is to drive like a bat out of hell all the time. If you're accelerating like mad, the oilpan will be 'downhill' thanks to inertia. (j/k)

    BTW: I'm glad to see that the Lewis Black pic I made has found a second home. Thanks Sarge.. spread the love :D

    alright guys this is getting rediculous. it doesnt matter what kind of degree you have in engineering or whatever. what matters is that i (and others) have done this before. we are telling you from experience... IT WONT WORK. it doesnt matter what kind of equasions you use or how you do it or what you think will work. everyone just chill out.. yes its a shame to throw that money away.. sell it on ebay and make a custom manifold. if the oil cant drain freely youll end up with oil in your exhaust and in the intake. trust me its happened to me. your compressor will fill with oil and youll start getting detonation.

    I'm still waiting for the magical calculated formula thats going to defiy the laws of gravity and let oil drain upwards.

    in THEORY it would work since the oil is under pressure..
    but..
    in REALITY it makes the oil go right past the seals. trust me i went thru 3 turbos because of this.TURBOS ONLY NEED ABOUT 25-30PSI MAX AT ALL RPM RANGES. THIS IS HOW THEIR DESIGNED. IF YOU PUT TO MUCH PRESSURE IN THE BEARINGS ITLL SLOW DOWN THE TURBINE. THEY DESIGNED IT LIKE THAT FOR A REASON. IF IT DIDNT MATTER, WE COULD PUT THE OIL IN SIDEWAYS, OR EVEN UPSIDE DOWN. LOOK AT EVERY STOCK TURBO CAR, THEY ALL HAVE FEE FLOWING OIL PUMPS. and dont be an ass and try and find somethng to prove me wrong.

    come on ppl think logically here.. you dont take a shit upside down... why not just use a pump to pump it into the toilet..

    I've been on the EGT list since '98 , I've been on the 1stgenGT list, erdt list before it was a forum ,a member of ERDT ,FEOA ,NEPA and it still never ceases to amaze me how everytime Denis tries to help someone he gets belittled and bashed to no end .....

    Heres a little wake up call for the clueless..... Denis was one of the first people to turbo charge an escort. Back when I first joined the EGT egroups mailing list in 98 there were only a few(that I can remember) guys with turbo's , Josh Anderson Greg Smith(88 exp) and Denis .They didnt have dozens of message boards that they could go to to copy everyone elses setups they did the research and all the trial and error work themselves..

    Denis knows what works and what doesnt simply because he's been doing it longer and he's most likely tried it already and throughout the whole time he's been doing it he posted most of what he did almost step by step for everyone to see , Tom(caymen) Donnie and many others here were there to see the many different set ups Denis went through before he got to his current setup.

    post count dont mean shit when it comes to stuff like this and just because you can spam a message board doesnt mean you know what you are talking about. it just amazes me how the board camping post whores who claim to know it all yet couldnt find their own asses with both hands a map a compass and 2 sherpa guides get all the "claimed" credibilty while the truely knowledgable get dissed over and over and over even though theyve been there done that and got the shirt to prove it

    guess you just cant help the helpless

    to the original poster of this thread I hope you can find the good advise that was posted here and get your setup up and running
