Isn't that pretty thin walled piping for a turbo manifold? So people have long lasting success with that material?

It is a beautiful ******* manifold. Did you do all the bending yourself?

i bought a ebay special for a 1.8 under slung jobby

[I] cut the flange off it and it went no where near, so I chopped it off at the first bend and got the pipe bender out and made the rest of it tbh[???] the tubing is a bit thicker its the fact I de-burred it a bit too much. lol

I'm also making a turbo support to take some of the weight.

have a collins -31 actuator for it standard 15psi
