    Making manifolds.

    The Skid Factory has several educational vids on car customizing/rebuilding. It is interesting to find out that small businesses are still casting for small quantities and one-offs.
    If you are a petrol head the youtube videos are worth a look at.

    Even in these times of extreme boredom and drastic searches for any content to fill time, this video is, errm, a non-starter. But I can match it!

    As it's in the motoring section, I watched this yesterday. It could be a cheaper option than buying a new electric vehicle.



    Same guy, different car.

    Always cheaper to diy weld your own mani.
    Stainless steampipe elbow cost <$0.7/piece shipped from China, and refill Argon here in Thailand is very cheap. (600baht for a 6m^3 cylinder, or equivalent of CF200). I welded my dual wastegates, fully backpurged header effectively for $60( reused old flange and collector )
