Default Turbo Intake

What do you guy's use for the intake going to the turbo? I have a MAF adapter from my JCS intake. I also have a small amount of pipeing that fit's over it, but it dosent looke studery enough to bolt a MAF onto. A penny for your thoughts.
Thanks,
Mike

I have a Weapon-R intake going into the turbo, mated to a Kartboy MAF adapter. I also have a small bracket to help it from vibrating, but will be improving on the bracket in the near future.

I guess I'm just looking for stuff to weld up with my new kick booty welder.

I know what you mean- my buddy just got his new Miller Syncrowave. Mmmmm....new squarewave TIG...
Should have seen his old beast. It was bigger than a large swamp cooler!

You can pick up a decent used TIG setup for around $800. You're looking at about $2000+ for a brand new square wave setup w/ torch, tank, etc. You can get a MIG welder for under $400 new. MIG is nice if you're going to build a roll cage, but if you want to weld thin wall 4130, stainless steel, aluminum or titanium, TIG is definitely the way to go.

Where would I look for the used tig?
Thread content: My turbo is being placed so that I don't need a special intake. I will use one of the foot long cone filters with a custom heat sheild of some sort.

You could call a local welding equipment supplier. Sometimes they have used equipment for sale. Also check your local classified ads. You might even check on eBay, but most TIG welders are pretty heavy so shipping could be pretty expensive. You could also check here: http://www.phred.org/mailman/listinfo/framebuilders
There are some very talented welders on the framebuilder's board- they can probably help you find a used welder.
Hope this helps!
