it's not that big a deal, I have an extra engine/chassis to do the testing on when it arrives. I have a few t3's in the garage and was able to get the downpipe with 2 of them, so should be able to get it put together on the cheap. plus I'll be learning to weld soon and will buy a welder.

it arrived yesterday and the welds look pretty good, was it your first attempt at a manifold?

That is melted metal from the welding or slag.
