      I think the concept of watching where you weld was lost on this one.

      what gets me is that he could have spent 30 minutes with a grinder and made it look a million times better. Half assed to say the least.

      I would guess that it would bring serious cash at a art gallery in Manhattan though -

      So they just welded the turbo straight the manifold?

      I can barely tell what i'm looking at.

      It looks like it got sooo hot that the stock melted itself to the turbo...

      Good god, that's horrible. I've welded only 2 or 3 times in my life and I'm confident I could make it look better then that.

      For sure it's not just heat welded or melted. You can see the different colored oxidation which indicates welding all over that sucker.

      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.
