That one is a bit rusty, but those are the new one-piece fully-encapsulated units.

Buy a kit from these guys:
http://www.jgstools.com/turbo/index2.html

If they don't have 14b flanges talk to weirtech on here or at homemadeturbo although I haven't seen him in a while. But I don't spend anytime at HMT.

Take it to a local welder if you don't feel comfortable doing any welding. You might even be able to take it to a community college who has a welding program, but remember you get what you pay for.

Your probably better off in the long run finding a t25, and getting a cast manifold from Begi or FM.

Goddamn it, now THAT is a correct turbo/manifold setup! I laughed hard. Im trying to understand, but I cant. That must be 20lbs of weld on that thing.

My uncle with parkinson's can weld better than that with two car batteries in series, a set of booster cables, and some coat hanger wire.

I got it figured out. It cracked, you see, and he had to fix it...
