    I have a W202 C250TD and I'm looking for a turbo flange adapter to fit a GT2871 or something similar. I don't mind if it's used or if somebody can make one themselves if they've done it before.

    Thanks

    Can't you just buy one on eBay?

    The Garrett turbos are a pretty common fitment, and from memory it's a four-bolt rectangular inlet and a five-bolt oval outlet on the turbine side. The compressor side is usually a two-bolt flange inlet (unless you've got the anti-surge plate) and a three-bolt outlet.

    I've got the old elbow off a 2804 in my garage at the moment (because I'm replacing it with a 3" elbow) if you want a photo of the exhaust flange.

    I think dieselpumpuk now sells them.

    Fairly straight forward if you had the two flanges, the 3 bolt mercedes flange is different to standard flanges. Try superturbodiesel, there's pictures etc of home made adapters.

    Unfortunately these diesels have a silly three bolt pattern. Adapters are needed to fit aftermarket turbos

    I saw them on the DPUK for about £200. I was planning to make everything myself in the beginning but I would need to buy a decent welder and then find the time to make it. If I could get hold of a used adapter or get someone to make cheaply it would give me a great head start

    They do come up rarely for sale.

    Could buy a cheap 605/606 exhaust manifold, a 90' bend and a t3 flange and take it to someone to weld. It wouldn't cost a fortune, take a picture of already made adapters so they can see the angle etc.

    That's a shame; it's quite easy to find a Borg Warner to Garrett adaptor, but you're right that it's got four bolt holes for each.

    A competent exhaust fabricator could probably knock one up for you; try Pipewerx in Ormskirk, their work is really good.

    Great ideas! I think I will just have to bite the bullet and take the car to a shop and get it done. There is a company near me in Ashford called Fast Road Conversions which do Powerspeed exhausts. Has anyone heard of them?

    I'm sure I've seen them mentioned positively before, but you know how things can change over the years. - They definitely claim to do turbo conversions, so you could be on to a winner.
