Message:
Ok last Sunday morning I helped Rammer finally pull his blown up 318 form his Ram. It's been sitting for over 6 months now.
This is the engine that was turbocharged and finally threw a rod. It wasn't directly form the turbo, but a chain reaction from blown head gaskets, which plugged the oil pick up screen, which then lost oil pressure... etc etc...



Here's a video clip I took of the engine as we disassembled it.

Well for one I talked him into redoing the exhaust setup from the manifolds to the turbo.

He had a crossover bringing the drivers side under the truck into the passenger side. Then a hold cut into the side of the passenger side with tubing coming form that up to the turbo. Restrictive I am sure. And a 318 stock manifold is not a even hollow tube like the 4.7 stock manifolds are.

So, I talked him into using them shorty headers he used for a while in the pre-turbo era LOL!

We fabricated it on the blown 318 just before pulling it. It uses the shorty headers swapped to the other sides so that they aim FORWARD of the engine. The power steering is moved up for clearance and then those two pipes form each header join together just under the turbo which will be in front of the engine. I think it's way better that way.

I'll take some pics soon once I help him drop in the motor in about 2 weeks.

In the meantime I thought you would get a kick out of that 318's carnal damage video! :p
