too bad exhaust temps reach in the 1400-1500 range on boosted motors...I just researched 321 grade steel and from what I can tell, it's a nice strong metal that has good welding characteristics and also has good heat resistance up to around 900 degrees...so if this manifold is truely made of 321 stainless steel then it shouldn't be to bad if rewelded and braced.
thats what i was thinkingtoo bad exhaust temps reach in the 1400-1500 range on boosted motors...
its going to break, doesnt matter what he tell you about the metal its made of.
shit, sced40 steel breaks and cracks due to the heat and weight of a snail. do you think that paper thin stuff wont?
i understand what your are saying about cost, but the reality is you are going to have more hassle than its really worth.yea but tons of people have boosted their cars using rewelded and braced the original manifolds which are were made out of the 304 steel...and the 321 is stronger and has a better heat resistance...so I don't see why it wouldn't work with the 321 stainless one as long as it's welded good and braced...I'll give it a try. If it doesn't work and it cracks, I'll have it rewelded and then I'll sell it. I could buy this and have it rewelded 6 times before it equals the price a good custom ramhorn...ya know what Im sayin?
