I'm actually just finishing a bunch of manifolds. I'll try to take pics once I get everything TIG'd next week.

That collector is definately interesting. overall it's pretty damn nice.

So long as you have a way to control your interior welds it's a great idea. Otherwise you may end up with something that flows worse then stock due to turbulance from exposed weld material.

Moreso important on stainless steel manifolds, since you can get a sugaring effect on the back of the weld if you don't backpurge the manifold.

Good luck! I wouldn't suggest trying it yourself unless you are an experienced welder! But, the example in the link is sweet.. turbo'ed Toyota 22RE :bigthumbu
