i had some 309 3/32 and it was to thick. i couldnt get it to work properly. i have no trouble welding with 3/32 aluminum filler but the stainless just wasnt working. the 1/16 was very easy to use. i just got the 316 cause it was what was in stock and didnt cost but .40 cents a lb more. i'll crank up the gas some more and see how it does. im not really going for the pretty blue and purple for looks. as long as the weld is strong and penetration is consistent thats what im concerned with. my customer base is mainly going to be people who cant afford most kits and fancy pretty stuff with 321 stainless that costs $110 per bend

are you using one of those large pyrex cups?

walker does. his work is so pretty but much more costly than i ever plan to charge, although doing this does cost a lot of money for him. thats probably a whole tank of argon just to weld this manifold

To say you some money you don't need the precision 46mm waste gate. The 39mm will work just fine.

the option for my manifold will be either 38/39 or 44/46 so which ever he chooses is fine with me. but for making 600 he cant go wrong with a 46

Since you said he will be running 600hp, on which dyno. Mustang dyno or dynojet. There's a HUGE difference between both of them.
