$50 3" homemade downpipe

Postby SuperRunner » Fri Dec 03, 2004 8:26 pm

I had 2 1/2, but decided to go 3". Anyway, after some work, here it is. I should have gone a little closer to the oil pan to prevent damage, but oh well, done now.

I do stuff like this all the time. Took me a couple hours to go from the turbo to the driveline tunnel.

I also planned on doing some downpipes for supra's and selling them, but time, and the fact that I need to buy a tig, prevents me from doing so for now. I will buy a tig next year. New Years Resoloution - Buy a TIG :D

Oh, by the way, it is another $25 to get to the tunnel. $75 in cost of matirial to go from turbo to tunnel.

First of all the downpipe looks great. I've been thinking of picking up a Tig welder, and making my own exhaust system....
The amount i'd spend on a tig welder would be less than a full aussie system.
I have a couple questions. WHere did you get the flange for the turbo?????
And the one for the exhaust? Did you do all the welding with a mig welder?
