    Nice. I would like to see Dyno # of this compared to the stock j pipe. It's stuff like this and the custom t2 manifolds that make t28 setups put down killer power.

    this is the second full 3" of done. I have a jig now so may look into making other j pipes to see what works.

    I have a buddy with stock VE and gtir turbo kit. stock t28. im trying to get his car in the shop to use as a test bead for T2 components.

    On top of everything else I have going on! haha

    Do you use a pedal to control the welder or the torch switch? The blob as you call it won't effect the weld, your welds look great. If you use the torch switch and have ramp up on your machine try that or just use a pedal to manually ramp up amperage. Great job!

    Either way you can ease in and out of the heat to control your puddle. Torch or pedal...

    So I've been wanting to learn how to mig since pretty much forever. Ive watched loads of TV programs and youtube on the subject. I finally picked up a used welder the other day and stocked up on some PPE.

    Welder by Mattick22, on Flickr

    It was CO2 but I can only get the argon mix locally so I decided to get a new bottle of it and a new regulator as well. Ill see if I can give the old CO2 stuff to the local pub in exchange for some drinks! I also got an auto darkening helmet and some gloves, because I really care about my safety.

    Welder by Mattick22, on Flickr

    Now here is where this gets interesting... When I picked up the welder, the previous owner let me throw down some practice welds which didn't look like crap at all. However, when I got home and got some scrap from the garage, I started having some issues...

    Welder by Mattick22, on Flickr

    For those of you experienced welders I am sure I can hear the face-palm all the way to my house...

    Newbies pay attention. If your welds look like this, then stop immediately!

    Welder by Mattick22, on Flickr

    Chances are, you're welding some sort of galvanized or otherwise coated metal. This can kill you. As I am typing this, it is hard to breath and I have a smokers cough. I feel like I just spent all day in the London Underground.

    Use my dumbassness as a lesson. If it looks like your trapping ghost in your welds, its probably not a good idea to continue. I have since thrown the piece completely out and will go to the recycle center for some stupid-friendly mild steel to practice on.

    I should have known but for some reason it just didn't click at the time.
    No one of us us as dumb as all of us...

    Its been a while...sad to say I've left the motorsports industry, but doesn't mean I still don't build / weld.


    Alphatig 200DX all pedal action 10a start full throttle set @ 80a; argon @ 20cfh using hybrid 1/16" on large pyrex cup from htp.
    Delta bandsaw, deburred, hand filed flat, brake cleaner, no back purge, but used solarflux. Vibrant 3" piping, MF resonator w chopped ends, used a 45* piece as a turndown tip, had some scrap slip joints and clamps
    What's it going on ???? One day I'll finish it, but if you're keen enough you can tell from the piping shape.

    3/32" tungsten, material is mild steel though, I notice with SS the heat affected area is much smaller then with MS, I run ~15cfm with a gas lense at about 65amps on 16g to 16g but more when welding flange to 16g tube.

    Did you clean the MS? prepping the surface-wise ? try to bump up the argon a bit to 18-20cfh, try to use less heat depending on which machine you are using; some required more, some required less, need to find a pool and have a comfortable speed. On steels I use 1/16" tungsten typically SS I setup @ 33a and MS @ 48a, have encountered problems when didnt prep normally requiring more heat. Try some different settings, find a happy medium, most of all have fun

    where are the rest of the fab from other members ????

    Here's a t3 bottom mount manifold I'm building for my personal b13 build. 1st manifold I've ever attempted, coming out OK I think.

    Thanks! I'm using the AHP Alpha tig200. Mild steel head flange, 304ss sch10 runners, t3 flange and collector. Using a #14 cup, argon set at 25-28cfh, orange tungsten, 308L filler rod, 309 for flange to runners. Welded at around 80-90amps, and using solar flux on the back side.

    @dorsey61 awesome machine, were you one of the people who purchased during the initial offer when AHP first came out ? I love my AHP, its such a beast and with the flexibility of 110 and 220v I've sold so many by word of mouth to alot of the shops I did fab work for. I taught them all very well, and with the controls that the machine offers like higher end Miller and Lincoln machines for 1/3 of the price used. Gave them enough room to budget in quality consumables.

    @enohand nice work on getting the rust out, lead filler...a dying method of body work. Keep it up everyone !!!

    Building a manifold for a friend who bought a half done 20v swap B13. He owns the GTR in the background.
    He has a lot of spare parts from his Honduh days, Rotrex C38, ID1100cc, Fuel Lab fpr, filter, 10an, 8an lines, Apexi WS2 exhaust, list goes on. More of a spare time fun build.

    I cheated with the S13 scored a mazworx rwd vvl head swap manifold. Nothing fancy yet on the S13.

    Chris101, nice work.

    Cmon people get those welders, grinders fired up. Show us all something new, show us improvement in yours skills from earlier posts.
