Title:  One Piece Turbo Support Bracket Straddling the Exhaust Manifold with Integrated Datum Features 

Brief Description of the Drawings:  Figure 1 is a side view of a turbo support bracket shown installed on an internal combustion 

engine.    Figure 2 and Figure 3 are a similar perspective view of the turbo support bracket and internal 

combustion engine arrangement of Figure 1.  Figure 4 is an elevated perspective view of the turbo support bracket and internal combustion 

engine arrangement of Figure 1.   

Description:  As shown in the attached illustrations and described below, a turbo support bracket that 

straddles the exhaust manifold using a one piece design, is disclosed.  In addition, the turbo support  bracket also uses the corner of the engine head as datum locators to reduce tolerance stack. 

See attached illustrations for further description of components and features of the turbo  support bracket as shown in this embodiment. 

Having described the arrangement of this disclosure in detail and by reference to specific  embodiments thereof, it will be apparent that modifications and variations are possible without  departing from the scope of the disclosure as described above.
