  • Got to work on the hotside today...

    I started by cutting a U bend in half

    Then I cut a side off

    Then I welded the cutoff back on 180*

    Then I made a window and started welding.

    Rinse and repeat...


    Almost done.
    Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

    I get bummed out every time I type "titties" in the search bar and nothing pops up....

    Built not bought, because bolt-ons don't...

        That looks good! looks like yours are stainless though... When I remake the system when I have time and money to do it, I'll do a stainless 3-1 header setup.

          • I want to have mine ceramic coated, depending on the cost.

            • I'm building a car similar to this one and my pipes are also similar, mine will be HPC coated inside and out as well.one.png

                How are the transitions inside, fairly smooth?

                  They're decent, could be better. but they will flow more then enough for what I need.

                  • well, I've started working on modding a 3400 bin file for my 3500, so far, I have:

                    1. deleted EGR
                    2. imported Maf tables for LS1 Maf
                    3. changed the IFR for my 60 PPH injectors
                    4. bumped up hot idle to 800 RPM in Accessories>IAC>IAC desired idle speed. for the cam.

                    I'm not 100% sure I got the EGR delete right, I lowers the Disable thresholds to 0, and raised the enable thresholds to maximum (speed=255, TPS=100.9961) would this delete EGR? I assume I also need to remove the DTC so I won't get an SES light correct?

                    Thanks-

                    Eric

                    • Got a little bit done on the hotside before it got dark outside....





                      not permanent, I'm going to try to find a 2" V-band clamp, because I won't be able to fit a ball and socket in there

                        • Don.t forget to put a flew section in there. It will help stave off cracks. Nice job!
                          Took a break from working on the car. Got some better tools, got a better shop, got a better job... Its time to burn metal!

                          • still in progress, I plan to put one in, but I'm still trying to find out where! I also still need to find a spot for a WG too...

                              The closer to the turbine the better. What ever is bled off will result in less velocity beyond the WG, as there is less gas moving in the same cross sectional area.

                                I was almost thinking about mounting it under the turbo, but I would prefer easier access than that...
