You wouldn't want it mate, I crushed of a few pipes and blanked some other idle stuff, just basically a butterfly valve and that's it :)

and TIG its only argon, on MIG the misture with 2 gas (argon+co2) because argon are more expensive, this is what we usually use where I work , now do not know what percentage of each in the bottle

Iv done a bit of DC stick welding lately. its a breeze, better than MIG imo unless you are doing <1mm. That SS stuff looks very nice Frank, did you get any warping of the flanges?

arc penetrates better imo ed :) and yes the flanges did curl their toes a bit as you can see, but luckily its in the right direction for squashing the gasket when the nuts are pulled down
neil will be doing some stainless welding on his kit-form mani too (when i can find his postal addy :) )

Almost impossible to stop SS warping unless you bolt it down to a jig iv found.

Had a start on welding the manifold up,

I leafy the flanges quite big so it didn't warp, il grind them down later


Never welded stainless before, not toooo bad



Quick look of how things will look.....will be putting charge cooler between charger and inlet

I thought you were selling up for a flat dude
I was selling my flat for a house

Now have house, and done all major renovations, (kitchen, bathroom, phoebes room)

I've got a man shed now too :)


No one bought all my engine stuff, so all I need is a rolling shell and bolt all this stuff that's sitting here doing nothing in
