Thanks Casey...

One more little gem from this week, hand formed collector, using nothing more than a hammer, some hardwood knocking blocks, vice and a abrasive chop saw.  Welded it with argon back purge, don't want any lumps of oxide heading into the turbo!

Looks really neat!

I'd love to have a go at welding one day, and spray painting and.... (long list!)  ;)

Slowed down a little as I cut my finger off with a chop saw...  don't ask...  have been patched back up though and have started making progress again.  A long way behind with everything but hope to have first start in about a month.

Progress is being made:

The turbo is in place on the scaffolding :)

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
