sch 10 is fine imho. I would go with stainless unless you get a smokin deal on mild and dont mind rust (or coating it). What sort of manifold are you planning on making? Do you have a chopsaw or bandsaw? My only tip is to crunch the pipes to match the flange using a big vise with wood or cardboard on the jaws so they dont fuck up your pipes (and use a big pipe on the handle to make it easier)

If you're proficinet at MIG welding, then I'm sure you're got it under control. I've heard the term "back-purging"...if that strickly for TIG or MIG as well? Definitely something to try doing if so.

If you go the SS route, I would definitely backpurge to prevent the sugaring effect (itll be pretty difficult to grind that shit down in a mini ram). And no, backpurging is used for all weld processes. It depends on the material you are working with, and what you are building/thickness.

^Cool, as you can see I'm a welding noob. Wish my father had passed down his welding skilz and his Miller TIG to me!

Has anyone here tried oxy acetylene welding up a mild steel Turbo manifold? Would there be any disadvantages? I'm thinking oxy acetylene because I would have more control than you would with the mig and don't have access to a tig

I would just get a ss mig wire and purge the manifold with argon. that would be strong enough. oxy/ace welding mild steel would be stronger than mig due to the complete penetration of the weld. Mig is just a metal caulking gun so to speak, it fills in the gaps but it doesnt penetrate as well.

That's complete BS. If that's what you think, you're doing it wrong.
