I bet Kenny is getting a little laugh on this. He actually knows what he is saying. Well im not trying to have a big dick contest here but I posted some work. The comment on the color of a weld is also incorrect. Stainless can tell you allot from its color. Lots of blue and purple is cold and most likely did not penetrate correctly. Ideal color for stainless (Pretty much any series) is gold or siliver. Gray or discolored completely is very bad. Porosity is present and the piece has become work hardened. Making it brittle and likely to crack. Pulse has nothing to do with puddle control or stability period. It controls the amount of amperage across the signal at any given rate. Stability is controlled through connections to the work piece, amount of space from work piece, environment your in, and a whole lot more variables but pulse.
I recommend asking for a refund to the backwater 2 year tech you went to ( if at all)
HF only applies for Al, where the A/C needs it for stability. You must be mixing HF with arc force/pinch/?
Bead profile is 90% heat, 10% arc force setting/"pinch" setting ( or whatever your manufacturer calls it)

As far as backpurging goes, use it only for critical welds where you want maximum nominal flow. IE DIY headers won't really benefit unless youhave massive over penetration.

nasioc already has too much misinformation, leave yours out.

I always laugh when i read "pulse has nothing to do with puddle control".

pulse= changing peak heat to lower heat set by the user, and adjusting how long peak is on. So current has nothing to do with puddle control?!

here is a link to the build thread.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1753564

basically what i am doing is boosting my n/a block at 7 pounds.
then after i get that all figured out i want to do a brake upgrade.
in the mean time i will be building a spare block i have, and swapping that in when its finished, so i can turn the boost up.

i just need to fab my up-pipe, and i can hook everything up and bring it in for a tune

Yeah, I had to extend the MAF, and the TPS wires. Careful with the MAF since the maf signal requires shielding.

As for pointers, measure a sh%t load and cut once, and having a general idea where you want the pipes also helps.

This should answer your questions about extending your MAF cables.

instead of just pics can people post up specs as well. like:
what type of material used (size, lengths, bends, thinkness, etc), where purchased and pics of actual pieces maybe some dimensions.

WOW I really like that intake manifold! i wanna make one! Percision really really really nice welds. I am a custom fab. as well just havnt touched my sti just yet ALOT more knowledge based when it comes to building parts like the intake manifold . And rem everyone cup size,tungstin,hf s,pulse, gas all of it contributes to the way a weld looks! And the strength of the weld. I personally love using the miller dynasty 300 i think it's the best for the buck and for the size the dynasty 200 are nice but if i rem correctly they are big,(not 100% sure) dynasty 300 is nice and compact. Any of you guys ever weld anodized alum? Very fun! And hey if any of you guys want some steps on polishing let me know, when i find my pictures of my down pipe i put togeather i will post them!

Dynasty 300 FTW. I had to learn the hard way about anodization. Be careful when u weld aluminum and have to get things anodized. I forget which one it is but between 5356 and 4043 one of them will make your welds look black after being anodized. Get at me if you need and tips on the manifold Nitro. I would love to help ya out. PS Thank you
