    I offered 120 shipped on the manifold do you think it's worth it?

    well, its not pretty but if you can't fab it yourself then its worth it
    you can always grind the welds down a bit and hit it off with some high temp paint to clean it up a lil more if you have a show quality car...

    WELL, YOU CAN ALWAYS TAKE IT to a shop and get it rewelding

    is it custom fab? or is it based on some pro design?

    I'm thinking custom fab, but I don't want to pay 120 then have it re welded.

    no, not worth it. I can weld better than that drunk, and I'm not the worlds best welder. Some sawed up iron and a mig welder does not a manifold make. I would be surprised if the welds even held up the weight of the turbo once it went through a few heat cycles.

    Edit: the bead isn't even complete across the front side of the flange :eek:
