Have to give Mike a big Thank You!! We melted both sides of the aluminum exhaust on our camaro and he ran around between 12 midnight and 3 am scavaging up 4" tube/elbows and a welder and sawzall. We worked till 4:30am to get it all back together and wouldnt have been able to do it without his help!

Thanks Mike!

FYI, most of the twin turbo guys leave the turbo with a .120 wall elbow and change to the .065 wall downstream. Glad you got it back together.

Don't worry JG, Skinny has that down pat.

What thickness?
It was the .065" Basically straight out of the turbos after about 12" of straight pipe. It took several heat cycles before it blew out and only the 90* and the welds close to the 90* seemed to suffer. The welds close to the 90* and on the v-band seemed to get very brittle and the pipe broke off from the v-band.

Live and learn.:rolleyes:
