the one at the end of the manifold - start of the up pipe. just cutting off the stock exhaust and re-using the flange? cutting it yourself? or does someone sell them?

I had it made. sam used one from an na downpipe and felt it was a little too thin. shouldn't be a really big deal to get someone to cut a couple out.

You connect the manifold to the hotside via a steel tube.

Then blow

tacked up for a test fit on an 8v (fit well. I'll post those pics later)



going together, a showcase in ****ty welds:


both runners on there, even closer view of ugly welds


and welded up. bolted it back together and re-welded the support brace and let it sit and cool off


still have to smooth out the ends where I welded both on the inside and out. ding in that pipe was the result of grabbing the wrong hammer. meant to get the deadblow, oh well. I'm going to smooth the welds down a little bit and wrap the pipe, so it won't matter much as long as it doesn't leak.

test fit pics. if it doesn't work out like I want, I can re-purpose it for 8v use and pass it off one one of you bricksters.


side view:


not bolted up yet either, so a bit more vertical clearance.

I'm not sure that I'm inclined to believe that. the stock turbo manifold is short as hell and it sucks the sweat off a dead guy's sack

they're all generalisms. if short was good for high rpm power, log manifolds wouldn't suck so bad.

ordered a bunch of seals and gaskets and ****, $350 after the coupon at fcp.
