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.

Got a bump to come and update you guys,  turbo conversion is finished and we are out racing again.  I have taken on the timing and mapping duties my self and currently tuned to 9psi...  not sure I’m going to need too much more, enjoy the fun from the weekend.   First FTD and also the overall course record:)
