Reinstalling Passenger Side Turbo

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys-

Last week I helped my friend remove the passenger side turbo from his '97 Esprit. The turbo was burning oil and we have since had the thing rebuilt. We are now faced with a dreaded re-install as it was a tough one to remove. There is one nut that poses a real challenge and I am wondering if anyone has any tips or tricks on how to tighten this one back up. I have included a photo of the nut which I am talking about. It is towards the rear of the car and closest to the bellhousing. We had to shave down an open end 17mm to get enough clearance to even be able to loosen the nut. My concern is that we won't be able to tighten it up well enough. Any thoughts? Best Regards, -Matthew
