how hard is it to make all the piping for a turbo setup? If i have some welding skills, should i just go by a bunch of mandrel pieces from summitracing or somewhere and make something up? I take it i should just buy a dp, or how hard is it to make one.....thanx for any help http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: tubing (mavric)

Hey,
if you can weld you can make tubing for a lot less money than buying it--mandrel bends and cheap straight stock is the way to go. If you think you could weld boost tube you can probably handle a downpipe pretty easily. You can buy flanges pretty cheaply from Techtonics. There are some great pointers on making downpipes in MAXIMUM BOOST by Corky Bell (it's a Bentley)--this book is great overall so you might want to get it anyway.
Here it is on Amazon:
