Ugh, thats in a shitty spot too, not where I would have expected it to break from the turbo moving around though.

That is how Tim made my crane. The crane attaches at 3 points, the lower center head exhaust stud and then 2 valve cover bolts.

last fail for the night


With the T25-to-VBand adapter, the downpipe doesn't fit. Yay. I think I'll be running N/A.
Does anyone have stock 1.8 parts? Exhaust manifold, midpipe, cat, exhaust.

Yep it was me who built the mani! Of course I offered to repair it for free, I feel pretty bad that this happened.

From looking at the pictures more, for it to crack in those two places, I think the two outside runners were being pushed out towards the turbo due to whatever heating/cooling movement the stainless was experiencing. Those two welds are right at the longest leverage point, and it pulled apart at the weld. Bad news bears.

If/when I fix it, I'm also going to put some gusset tabs a la turbo Tim over those two welds, and I will re flatten the flanges because I'm sure they will warp a tad. Bigass belt sander to the rescue.

Because he drove my turbo slutcar and decided "Turbo is fun"
Which quickly moved on to "Must beat the turbo slutcar"
This quickly turned into a Russian raging manic overkill!

I am so proud of him
