    Nice work and -- more important -- should be up to the job. I'm amazed at the thicknesses some people think they can get away with.

    All the manifolds look really well fabricated.Make me want to learn tig just looking at them :cool:

    I also like the natural finish on the welds,give a good balance of function and form i think.

    Great work.

    I seriously think you can feel safe to add "The Manifold Guy" under your name by now. Or maybe "Manifold Sensei" :D

    Awesome, i wouldn't mind making something for that :)

    More to the point look at the clutch :o
     
  12. cantfindausername weld? blow holes you mean!

    Are you able to do any custom jobs?

    I've got an exhaust Y section that I'd like remade in Stainless. Be interested to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks,
    Ant

    Yes wouldn't be a problem, if you take a pic or something and PM me I'll take a look and give you a rough price.

    You'd have to post it up unless it's really simple then i'll post it you back down.

    some top work here rick.

    just so i can understand a bit about what your doing.

    the lengths, how do you get to the length of each port. or is it a case of you have a exhaust allready there and you got a flange to bolt to so you need to get to that point and each port has to be the same length so you get a proper flow?


    also don't you need to smooth the inside so you get a better flow to get the waste gasses away or does it not make to much difference

    i know inlets need to be smooth to get them in etc.

    top work keep it up, like the oil breather bottle how much for one of them.

    Hello,

    It all depends on what you have to work with, for example, if you've got the flange in a certain place and it can't be moved, you then decide how you want the runners to get the them best length and most equal. (sometimes its not possible) but usually thats because somebody has added a HUGE turbo to a small engine bay so the results going to be too much power anyway :)

    In some engine bay's you have a lot more room, then you decide on where you want the powerband to be.
    2 things you can change what makes the biggest difference rather than overall runner length is the angle of the collector and size of the pipe.

    Here's an Integra I completed last week, everything was done by us, manifold, piping, mapping, etc etc. Didn't get chance to take many pictures as we started around 12 on Monday and finished on Thursday, the car went to the strip on Friday and managed a 12.8 @ 111mph, i think that's a record for this type of car on a 100% stock engine.

    The catch can's are ~£40 depending on size/fittings etc.

    Some of the welds on this were done by my apprentice :)
