Default source for DSM compressor outlet flange adapter

Any ex-DSM guys here have a source (preferably cheap) for a compressor outlet flange for a stock DSM turbo, i.e. 14b/16g, etc. Even better would be an outlet adapter that steps up to 2". Should I just cut the flange off a stock outlet pipe and weld on a transition from 1.5" to 2"? Thanks

$14.99<$15.00... Free shipping means you only pay $14.99.

I may still have a stock J-pipe from my good old DSM days. I won't know until friday when I go back to the storage unit.

As for cheaper the one posted is about the cheapest your going to get it. That J-pipe isn't a cheap part.

I made mine out of a stock J-pipe flange and a piece of Dodge 440 header. The stock flange is thin and was brazed to the pipe. This made welding a little more difficult. If I was to do it again I would spend the money and buy a flange.

here's a pic of my set up

Considering the above, I'll probably buy a flange. Thanks though

I'd just buy the flange myself, but lemme know if you still want that pipe.

On second thought, don't buy that stainless POS on ebay, contact Weir and get a good one..
