Might make some mad boost y0!
For some reason it makes me think of something you'd find in the ocean off a bigdaddy from rapture 60 years after it fell off.
If one weld will do, two hundred'll work awesome! each bead adds .5psi
Thats not actually on ebay is it?
Sure, go for it. I want to see the sheets when dyno results come back and you find it dropped horsepower.
or that you're not getting any back pressure because the welds all blew out simultaneously.
Chinese turbo, fluxcore manifold, that's gotta be from RHMT. Love it.
I don't understand how someone who has ever seen a weld bead can even create something like that. If you see yourself making a bead like that, you don't keep going! The ones near the turbo just suck, but the ones near the engine look like he ran out of shielding gas and just didn't care.
srsly, is this for real?
Haha, that's awesome. It almost looks like he duct taped it together and threw it in the oven.
LOL Gib Lil Sisterzzzzz
i can't weld for shit... but even i wouldn't do something that horrid.
(at least if i did, i wouldn't take a pic of it) lol
it looks like he got sick of trying to find a good turbo manifold so he cut the flange off a perfectly good mani/header and welded the "piping" together in chunks. I can't imagine how he thought that'd be a good idea at all.
When I made it, I took the time to take a picture of my first weld ever.
Someone, somewhere is wondering what the hell happened to their fence post.
I give him props for trying to do something as difficult as fabricating a turbo manifold with limited resources, even more limited skill, but an ample supply of alcohol. I bet it doesn't work well, but it more than likely works, which is more than I can say for the turbo manifolds 99% of the people posting in this thread have made (which don't exist).
And as they say: git r done!
well then again klyph, most people in this thread dont own a welder
Sure doesn't seem to stop them from criticizing. Seems to me like a bunch of deaf people acting like music critics.
I would love to see that setup on a ratty DPFI EF, I started to make one but I never did finish it.
