Wow, came out great, so I'm not going to bash on the bumper!
Awesome quick work. I am still trying to figure out what steap pipe is though. Wonder how well it will hold up to heat cycling and stress.
Keep up the good work.

its not actually called steam pipe thats just what most people call it round these parts there 4mm wall 90* but weld elbows.. easier to call it steam pipe
there are alot of manifolds around made out of it and i have heard less issues with it than anything else

I'm not a huge fan of the front bumper but I really like the back end. Great job on the quick turbo, too!

I see you are running your Kiwi ingenuity past the world!

Tho I am dissapointed to see no number 8 wire incorporated into the design
