      that's a lot of weld wire... *LOL*


      I wanna see that bad boy running, glowing red hot, and cracking in 9 billion places as it rips its self apart.

      I feel bad for the turbo.

      Hot. I want one. That will be the next hot addition for the rat rod/rusty beater style car at the shows.

      Where did it come from? Does anyone know what car its supposed to be for?

      It is quite the most amazingly bad piece of fabrication I have ever seen. My cat has made better welds than that by standing on the torch!

      Throw an Audi engineer down a hole with a ladder and he will fashion a shovel from it and tunnel his way out

      I just double checked. It was from a renault 19 16v turbo

      Considering it's french it may have came from the factory like that.

      Just showed this to my welder friends...

      This got me wondering how much it weighs
