All of Joe's work and parts are usually so expertly thought out/executed that it's nice to see he's human like the rest of us lol

Haha, I was thinking the same thing myself... It looks like he started with nothing but a few rods and ended up with this thing.

only a fine connoisseur of art can appreciate the bolt hopelessly stuck in the flange, or the subtle wires that have burned through and been irreversibly stuck in the big booger of metal

I'm as desperate for a manifold/turbo/dp as hustler gets towards last call and that **** still isn't appealing to me.

I really want to make an offer, but I just can't bring myself to do it, and like hustler has yet to discover, I'll feel better in the morning for not letting it come to that.

art? what art...?

and even art should have some functionality.....this obviously does not...look at hot side of turbo it is almost all the way blocked off by welding....which should have been bolted in is welded and even if YOU CAN see a artist quality are you really going to pay 450 bucks from an artist you dont know for a peice of art you want to actually do something with?

performance is a art that is true...but it is nothing if not done right.....sorrry but that should not even be o this forum,....it makes us all look bad to even consider it as a usable peice...

He's right guys! This makes us look bad and we should never post anything on this forum that could make us look bad to other people. We have a positive image to uphold here people!

As a wise man one told me "I take it you didnt get the memo. The internet is serious business"
