DoGGy, just a heads up before someone else says it...but you know the tubes are Supposed(emphasis on this word) be the same length, right?

as long as you find witha little little little restriction on the spool(more flow at cetain pts) then awesome smile.gif

actuatly im pretty sure cylenders 1 and 4 are supposed to be the same length. and so are 2 and 3 since they fire differently. so you have cylender 1 and 4 exaust gases going out at one time and then 2 and 3 at another.

someone correct me if i am wrong.

This is how it's done professionally

so he does have those pipes right?

but you should just take a grinder and smooth the welds out a lil if you can, i'm not sure if that would weaken it........

hmmm if that holds up then romas might be getting 7afe business lol
Consynx
ah, never knew that...makes sense i guess, but there's still like a time say they fire .5 seconds b/t eachother(1+4 and 2+3)
while 1+4 take .2 seconds to flow out, 2+3 take .1 to flow out
so you're still getting a bit of a absense of flow in there, right?

wow those welds are not pretty at all..you gotta tack weld the pipe first to make sure its good..then keep the hand super steady.....my alot of my family welds/metal works....soo i know a few things...might want to grind them down and then heat wrap the thing or chrome it for a sweet look....

how much would something like that go for?
Hanyo
ummm guys.. i think doggy knows his ****..

i remember from the last thread about grinding down the welds and that weaken the manifold.. and i think he tried his best in making them equal length.

btw doggy mad props..
Consynx
just watchin out for the dogg-father
Gilbert_619
yeah i just showed my dad and he said not to grind the welds off....i will weaking it..even more cuz its going to have alot of heat to it....soo just sell that and make a nice one...hahah


anyways...how much would you guys pay for that?
Consynx
that...prob like 250-350
there's a stainless steel equal length one for sale on ebay right now with gaskets and just...yea
$610 with 2 days i believe
doGGy
firs of all, about the pipe lenght on GOOD actually VERY GOOD profesional made header they will be equal, but it still wount do as much.. cuz cilinders fire not at same time, so count and you will see.. About myne, i didnt care about pipe lenght, cuz almost ALL headers that are sold at ebay and etc are NOT equal pipe lenght... Cuz it is very difficult to make one like this.. About weld - i dont care at all, cuz they wount be visible at all, the first thing i care that it would hold the heat and it would be strong to take the weight of the turbo. I made this one for MY car not for sale sdo i just dont care smile.gif If i grind them it will weaken it by ALOT, so no thanks smile.gif

i made one myself...
Consynx
heh, i can't wait to see C/F intercooler piping

sounds spunky
Gilbert_619
is there a website where i can find the lengh of the piping and size i wouldnt mine taking on a project like this...just cuz i get bored alot..

doggy,
did you use a bar bender or did you have pipes bents already and just cut them up?
Consynx
make the length w/e...it doesn't matter, equilength is just what's perferred...
and i believe a 2" diameter? i could be wrong, but a search on google will tell.

red_94gts
the equal length matters more on a NA engine than one with FI. for someone who is just learning, that is a pretty good job. a lot better than i could do

i used already premade elbows, wall thickness is about 2.5 mm and the diameter of pipes is almost the same as stock header.

you can get elbows at www.jgstools.com, they are not so expensive i think (im talkink about regular metal not ssteel.) And you can get all the nessasary flanges there too...

i'v done metal piping already, so i have a mold, now i have to take and lay down the CF on the metal pipes, after this, cut the CF in few places and remove it from pipes and lay some more on top of it smile.gif

I think they look pretty good.

You just make this stuff for yourself? Or thinking about selling some? How long does a piece like that take you?

I think it looks great. Just get some exhaust wrap and wrap it up, nobody would even see the welds.
