Please tell us you ported the turbine inlet flange at the bottom of that beautiful merge. And made some kind of brace so the whole thing doesn't break off the head when it resonates at xxxx rpm.

I'd think you would have a lot to benefit by adding a mild steel brace for the little work it takes. The mild steel would allow some movement for expansion/contraction but ease the load on the runners when it comes to the harsh jarring from the cantilevered load. I created a brace using two pieces of small square mild steel tubing on each end with a solid rod in the middle, sleeved by the tubing. Cheap insurance?

That's amazing. Is this your own personal shop, or is that your business?
