Down pipe?

What do any of your turbo guys do for a downpipe? Im doing a home made kit. Is there any where you can buy a elbow to start off the turbo? I dont want ebay for this part. The turbo im using is a TD04L of a wrx. thanks for any help.

Since your going custom I would start off with buying a proper flange for the exhaust side of the turbo. Then you can gather some exhaust bends and start fitting up the piping until you get the downpipe routed where you want it. Add the O2 sensor bung and a flex pipe in there too.

ATP turbo and similar companies might be able to help you in locating the proper flange.

Ya, i have and evo turbo on my car and the downpipe(they call it an O2 housing) had to be completley custom made cuz the angle was way off from the way it was on the evo.
