Let me start by saying this is the best section of this forum. I come here weekly and drool over the work that's posted. Hopefully some day i'll be able to weld/fab half as good as some of you do.
Been working on making SRI manifold for my turbo project. Tried using mostly parts from the original intake manifold to keep cost down. The hardest part was matching the ports of the metal plate and lower half of the intake.
I'm getting close to having it welded, but i have a few pestions.
1. Do i need to widen the ports on the plate?
2. How much should i expect to pay to have this welded? (2 big welds on either side of metal plate, then 2 smaller welds for the nipple and the metal plate with the sensor and the nipples.)
3. Is this crap? Don't be afraid to hurt my feelings.
