      nice work TIGNinja... did you bend that on a break yourself? what thickness material?


      that stepped one looks cool, but i would think with the drop down on each step its going to create a circle of air falling off it, just looks rather turbulent in there thats all. air flow doesn't like edges bends or steep drops.

      Its 1/8". We have a big break at the shop and this is the thickest stuff I dared try to bend

      i hear yeah. we have a lil Grizzly break, need to put a lil more nutt behind it to bend 1/8th but it will do it.

      what do you use for ac settings for 1/8th if you dont mind sharing? I usually crank the freq up high to keep a stable arc no pulse and about 28% cleaning, 3/32 #8 gas lenses gold tungsten around 125 amps about continuous the whole time.

      Yea about 125 amps. I use regular cups for aluminum and usually whatever size is closest to the machine im using (im lazy ). As far as settings goes I dont really care. Whatever the machine is set at

      I know all the welding nerds think there is some sort of magical machine setting for everything but if you know how to weld it will turn out good no matter what the machine is set at.

      totally a left field question, but is there any particular reason nobody smooths the welds on their custom manifolds? I'm not aluminum fabricator by any means, but that's the first thing I did with mine. but that's probably because my car will never be fast, so I make it pretty instead.

      1) smoothing welds is purely cosmetic. I, for one, like the look of a good weld bead.
      2) if you don't weld both sides of the intake manifold (most don't), the reinforcement adds a little extra strength.

      ya the pyrex gas lense i have measure a heavy inch and a half.. and i put flat cap on back of torch and i can get in anywhere.. plus the pyrex you can see through.. makes a difference i think

      That's an old project I'm about to finish... Composite intake ; lost mandrel for inner smoothness, it's for a 16V but I'll do one for AEB if the shape turns out to be a good design.

      I just need to machine the flanges than i'm ready to flow bench it
