I wish I new someone local that had a tig welder....I'd do it just to try, but I'd like to have an easy way to change it back should it be too crazy. I was thinking about having it dump down toward the ground, but how narly would it be to have it pointed out the vent (maybe I'd even get the occasional flame shooting out ) Actually, thats the only part that makes me second guess having it dump there. I could care less if it discolors the vent or hood, but the dump tube would only be about 6" long, so I can only imagine what will happen (unburned fuel, flames, etc)
I'd be worried the very hot exhaust would melt the aluminum, or definitely severely warp it.

I'd probably have it aimed at the vent which is cast....you really think it'd get that hot? I mean I don't drive the car like sav; bangin off the rev limiter for 20 seconds . I usually hit full boost in spurts driving on the street (not many roads where I can really get on it.... safely )

A lot of that exhaust will come in the cabin if it is passing over the cowl opening and by your open window.
