Finished up the wastegate flange tonight. I know the manifold isn't beautiful, but it was also one of the first welding project I ever did 5 years ago. So, don't judge too harshly on those old welds. I've had to repair a couple cracks, but overall it's actually held up very well.. it's just ugly. :)
Next up is the return line from the wastegate to the exhaust. Last fab stuff is some minor modifications to the intercooler pipes, coolant lines to the turbo then ready to dial in the tune!

38mm flange for Tial:






I haven't positioned the vacuum ports yet.


Fairly direct shot to the downpipe from the wastegate. That is tomorrow's project.
