      here is another "gem"

      At least they are using quality hardware like $26.78 fitting.

      That first one looks like it came off of an srt4 hahaha. Whoever welded these um... things.... should have their hands removed so they can never weld again. hahahaha

      the first pic looks like a tumor. can't tell where the manifold ends and the turbo begins.

      a couple Fast and the Furious quotes that come to mind

      "...you can't handle NOS you'll blow yourself to pieces..."

      "...now me and the mad scientist have to go through and replace the piston rings you fried..."

      -----------------------------

      i'd like to see a DIY thread by these guys

      step 1. collect materials and set on ground

      step 2. weld until you can't see anymore

      step 3. let cool

      step 4. weld more

      ya know ... the subsequent "fails" that were posted looked terrific compared to the first ... piece. My first thought after seeing the initial post was did it melt cause the welding was bad or something... then realized that that WAS the welding ... the molten metal dude took a diahretic crap left it out to petrify... heckuva way to integrate turbo parts with a manifold/downpipe design... <sheesh>

      the pictures that were posted afterward on got better ... MUCH better!

      Looking for ONE Luff M1 19x8.5 5x112 et48 wheel... please let me know if you have one available.

      oh my gawd ! this is the best thread in Fabrication !!!

      i think the guy was trying to weld 1/16" steel with a 1/4" rod , or he dropped this kit in an erupting volcano or something.

      lol,

      the customer could have probably built a better manifold with 2 tubes of JBWeld, a hacksaw and some fence posts from home depot. !!!

      To me it looks like the dude did some hilbilly tig welding on the first one.

      Step one: Insert electrode into stinger

      Step two: Take additional electrode and break all of the flux off

      Step three: Crank up the welder

      Step four: Strike arc and subsiquently start dipping the second rod into arc as you do so with tig and make a molten blob of crap.

      Step five: Let cool over night then install in your car........
