Yeah, the mini is easy to get at on the inside so why not, right?

They start off 3.5 inches. Im not sure on the angle. I will measure it for you. I cut down the collector after welding it all together then weld the inlet flange on. That way I can keep the turbo as high as possible.

Looks amazing

Do you clean or polish the welds afterward at all? Almost all my stainless welds come out dark and crusty no matter how much I try to keep the heat down to avoid burning it out...

No pulse. Why, does there anywhere on there that looks pulsed?

Nope, that is the end result.

Damn, very nice. Is it touch-start of high-frequency? We had to do some touch start in class since we were getting ready to do stainless tubing and our instructor said that's how a lot of the industrial places do it. Either way, I could never weld stainless for shit.

I guess I'll stick to mild steel manifolds  :somb:

Don't worry, just nut swinging like the rest of them in order to try and get somewhat of a hookup on the next manifold purchase. lol

HF start. You can weld stainless if you can TIG other shit. Just keep everything super clean, good gas coverage, don't pull the filler out of the gas inbetween dabs, and from there its just seat time and getting to know your own speed and comfort level.

i feel like i slowly improve each time i sit down.  when i look at manifolds i built even 2 years ago i am amazed at the improvement.  that is the biggest thing, seat time... just like racing, the more you do it, the better you will get.

may i ask why?

no point in going 130+mph unless your either;
a: trying to kill yourself/somebody else
b: doing it for 1/4 mile times at the track
