what kind of pipe did you use, is it DOM, or just .40?

Lightbulb piping

they also use that stuff as sprinkler lines in buildings, but that stuff has a higher nickle content?, i know its softer. i thought about building one, yours turned out real nice, i was going to make it out of DOM, because we use that for roll cages and i have a lot of scrap. keep us informed on the project, looks sweet. looks much stronger than the tubing (header pipe) that proturbo uses for there adapters.

is that hole under the turbo for your waste gate? awsome $hit duder. you should get it ceramic coated, that would look pimp, not that it doesnt already.

Is there a particular reason you chose a log manifold?
They are definatley not the most efficiant design for a turbo manifold.

Very nice work either way though!

Why would you have made it with individual tubes like headers? i think its a good design, looks like the diesel manifold. i would like to know if that hole is for the wastegate. later.
