Part of me is like, this people shouldn't be allowed near a welder, but most of me thinks good on them for having a crack and learning a heap along the way.

how did they make that clumpy dirt-looking weld on the 4 through 8 from the original post?? i didnt think you COULD weld that bad. its like they bogged up holes with dirty metal.

 

just found this pic - is it the same one from above from another angle? number 1 reason this exhaust manifold is better than Str8e180's - its obviously totally tuned-length with better flow.

looks like his amps are turned up to high because the welds are starting to turn black

the pic with the turbos on the 'mufflers' is actually a legit decent effort.

 

its used in america mainly, on big v8 monstrosity's. the exhaust gas still works back in the rear of the exhaust the same as off a manifold, no ware near as efficient obviously..

 

but its been done for awhile with some levels of success..

 

dont flame me :unsure:

What do you mean?! Look at the big picture. Sure those jobs are destined for failure, but it's people like that( that go in way over their head) that learn alot pretty quickly and probably have a ball doing it. I think it's great that people push themselves like that.

 

I'm addicted to chilli :) and know absolutely nothing about growing stuff, but I went and bought all this chilli growing shit, no idea what I'm doing but it's heaps fun learning by just doing it.

 

That's my views anyway. :)
