Wow man. That turbine is fricken ginormous. Your welding has gotten quite a bit better it appears. Your exhaust holding up could be attributed to the fact that it doesn't have to see 1600* EGTs like this manifold will. Roll with the punches though and attack that if and when the problem comes.

Great progress Pat, the welding looks real good, great job.
I don't see you having too many issues with that design.

I second the recommendation on the rutland gasket cement unless you get it all ground flat by a machine shop. AS is, you will need it.

Hope you crank her up soon.
