    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.

    lmao

    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.

    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.

    Haha, that's awesome. It almost looks like he duct taped it together and threw it in the oven.

    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.

    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!

    Sure doesn't seem to stop them from criticizing. Seems to me like a bunch of deaf people acting like music critics.
