    I appreciate the kind words guys. I'll post more pics as soon as they are available. This evening I need to start machining a flange for one end of the elbow to mount to the turbo.

    That's what we call a real DEER STRAINER... The deer is strained out before it reaches the grill. :naughty:

    Don't laugh, but I've had 3 instances of deer and dogs that were almost halfway across the road when they saw me coming. They went back the way they came. I figure they were afraid of the bumper or the exhaust note ROFL!

    Started machining the flange for the elbow. I use an old 1936 Reed-Prentiss lathe for this machining. If you have the patience, she still works just fine, just ask Mopar1973man. The mounting flange needs to be 4.4-4.75" OD, 4" ID, .290" thick, and tapered to .150". Taper can be no longer than .120" with my setup.

    Don't sell yourself short Texas.....if I can do it, anybody can :). The only stumbling blocks you might run into is the equipment, like a welder, grinder, etc.
