Clark's Corvair Parts in Shelburne Falls, Mass has complete turbo piping available. 413-625-9776. I suggest ordering their catalog set and their repro 1961 main book and 62-62 supplement GM shop manuals if you do not have them. The shop manuals are invaluable and reasonably priced and their catalog set (500ish pages) is a great reference in itself (not to mention a mostly complete listing of what is available for our cars without resorting to searching for NOS parts from someone's basement shelf.

By the way you did well. many people who are not new at this fail at posting photos:)

:welcome2: :wave: :wave: Welcome to the Corvair Forum! Congratulations on your 1963 Spyder acquisition. I used to own a white 1963 Spyder convertible back in 1970-1971. I was 17 at the time and drove it daily to high school in Thousand Oaks, California.

One of the most critical things about getting good support via the Internet is to provide careful, detailed and well thought out written communication. We only know what you tell us, since we can't come over to your house to interact with you and your Corvair in a question-and-answer session. It is important that you help us to narrow the focus, to understand your goals and objectives and level of experience in performing mechanical skills. There are many Corvair clubs scattered around the nation, and if there is one near you joining such a club and socializing with other local Corvair owners may help you in making progress with your Corvair. There is a great deal of experience available to you here on the Corvair Forum, and coupled possibly with local face-to-face contact with like-minded Corvair owners you should be able to get a handle on your Corvair project and prioritize the jobs that need to be accomplished to put your Spyder safely on the road.

The turbocharged Corvair Spyder system is one of the more complex versions of the Corvair to learn and to maintain effectively. A careful inspection and analysis of the current condition of your Corvair is important. The following link may help guide you through this initial process…

Removing your car from storage/Reviving a Dead Corvair

The link below will provide you with a list of useful websites that are Corvair-related. Some of the links will lead you to an extensive technical library that will allow you to download shop manuals and other technical references in Adobe Reader format at no cost. There is also a link that will help you to locate nearby CORSA (Corvair Society of America) club chapters. While the Corvair Forum can be very helpful as you work on your Corvair, having local friends and contacts in your region who are knowledgeable about the Corvair can also be very helpful. These family-friendly CORSA chapters often offer picnics, group scenic drives, technical training and assistance, car shows, and competition events that can greatly enhance your enjoyment of Corvair ownership. You will also find a list of essential Corvair parts suppliers. Clark's Corvair Parts is the biggest and oldest Corvair supplier in the world. You will find a link that can provide you with a series of videos that amount to a tour of the Clark's Corvair Parts facilities. I think you will be amazed at the quality of the reproduction components they offer — particularly the interior carpeting and re-upholstery items. Parts suppliers such as this truly make our Corvair hobby possible.

Common and Useful Corvair Websites

:dontknow: I would like to encourage you to expand on your initial post and tell us more about yourself. If you can describe your personal assessment of your mechanical skills and abilities, that would help a lot. Members of the Corvair Forum love to be helpful in assisting other Corvair owners with technical support and advice, but it helps a lot if we have some understanding of your technical background and mechanical abilities, Corvair-related knowledge, etc. Also, do you have a garage to work in and hand tools, jack stands and a floor jack, etc. to support a restoration project? Helping us to know more about you will help us to write comments to you that are tailored to your needs and experience. Knowing your location is also useful, because knowing where you live can sometimes suggest possibilities.
