no argument there, except for the bold part: most of the time, to make them really fun, you have to dump LOADS of cash into them and most CANT afford it.

Or just weld in some solid pipe and **** the flexi. I have no end of trouble with those damn things, dont get me wrong I use them and in some cases they are very useful but they are always a weak link for me. Maybe its just me

It's not necessary machine welded. A good welder with 10-15 years of exp can weld like that easy with a pulsed welder.




If I can weld this with only a year of practice and an on/off button (no pedal to moderate the heat) after 10 years I should be able to do something like the headers.

Yes, but at what price, after the JDM tax is removed.

EH? I don't understand what your trying to say?

For the part, I dunno, it goes in a sterilizer for an hospital, that's all I know.

Sorry, my poor sense of humor, "the force is strong in this one" only with current because we're talking about welding. And the lack of fail being disturbing was supposed to be a compliment.

**** I really need to stop drinking. I was better off with drugs than drink
