need ideas on how to support a heavy turbo
im running a single turbo on a sbc its right above the passenger side valve cover and i noticed when i got my car running recently that the turbo vibrates quite a bit i dont want that to destroy anything so i wanna support it somehow to be safe any ideas? thanks in advance

could you build a bracket from intake bolts up to something on the turbo?

It's tough cuz my fuel lines are right there and I'm running tall valve covers I even bought a threads sleeve with heim joint on the ends to adjust but Im having a hard time setting it up so rs not totally in the way and so I don't have to do some ghetto rig to get it to work

we typically figure the routing, mount the turbo firmly and then pipe to it.

Yeah I def could have done better planning if I had I would have avoided a lot of fitment issues
