#rudiontheline

@ricermiata I have welded a turbo to a cast iron manifold before and it was fine… until I killed the clutch. Turbo was fine.

The only difference as far as I can tell was that I used 3.2mm mild steel electrodes at 100amps without any pre-heating.

Would be interesting to see how it goes.

Have a look at this wet flange.

Completely soaked in #WD40 and dripping nothing but rusty sh*te!

Not more than 20 minutes after taking this photo did both of those nuts get turned into round lumps of rusty crud.

Bugger.

Do I just concede, cut the rear section off entirely and make it side exit? Or do I opt for a proper finish and replace everything?

Judging by the guestimates thickness of the exhaust piping, it’s not going to last long and it’s certainly not going to stack up well under the might of a 100 amp welder.
