Made a turbo manifold for my brothers FD.
Short runners, SS pipe, CS flange.
Welded with a Hobart ez Tig.
First time Tig welding a manifold.

Working on the first runner.


Working on it. Bolted to flanges and another manifold to help with distortion.


Pretty much finished, want to do a little bit more to it though.




How its gonna go on the engine.

If you hook-up with a solid machine, it'll last a while under almost extreme conditions.

Gotta love the IGBT tech that allows the boxes to be built so small / portable.
I see that even Miller has gone that route with a new line welders.

I know this thread doesn't get a lot of traffic, but I also have an Everlast PowerPro 256S and have had a good experience with it.

My foot pedal died within a year, and they sent me a replacement no questions asked. I would also recommend ditching the factory torch and getting a quality one immediately. Something like a CK unit.

Calling this "fabrication" is a bit of a stretch, but if anyone is building up a rotary and is lacking the spendy tool needed to measure step wear on the plates, this little bracket thingy I made and a standard dial indicator will do the job rather well. All this is is a chunk of solid AL bar stock and an AL right angle piece bolted to it, that I bolted the dial indicator to. Pictures describe it better than words...

This is my solution to using a REW rear plate with a RE front and intermediate. What do you think? I'll be surprised if the oil pan doesn't leak. I'm a master welder if you couldn't tell.
