6 mo bump.

I'm also curious what diameter you used for your turbo manifold.
I have a bunch of turbo parts laying around from years past when I had big pipe dreams a boosting my 12a. it never came together but now that jeff20B has learned the secret of the Nikki, I've been reinvigorated I'm inspired to finish my project.

with that said the turbo manifold is my second largest hurdle(aside from prepping my carb)I'm thinking a two inch diameter weld Els schedule 40 mild steel will be adequate. does anybody have any insight on this one way or another.

sorry for hijacking your thread I find this very interesting and hopefully I'll see a thread of mine before too long
