Default Tig welded JGS 1.8 manifold

got me a JGS w/ T2 flange

it did crack once but mistake, i had not welded inside but now it's done.

to be honest; if you have a large turbo it might interfere with the frame rail on the car but that's sorted with a hammer. see pic;

^ I cant see your turbo draining properly with the drain being below the oil level in the pan.

i should explain, i used this mani for a couple of years after which it developed a crack between 2 and 3 that I repaired. this weld has caused it to bow again. it needs a quick pass on a planer to be used again. as i said in another thread, exhaust heat wont warp it, welding will.
