Really like the ram horn Honda manifold, and that whole setup. Agree with a bunch of the others that an aluminum exhaust is nuts, though.

Wow guys amazing work! I want to learn how basics in welding so bad, but being 15 it's hard to prove your knowledge because the shops around me don't give me the time of day. They all say to come back when I turn 18 haha.

Thanks for all the replies and views guys! We're still hard at work in the fab shop, got a few new pics for everyone, and wanted you guys's opinion on the new surface finish for production manifolds. I wanna know what you guys like/don't like about it, opinions, anything you got. Lay it on me!







We're also getting started on the viper truck too. Some sexy collector cuts going into these 5-1's

PICTURES!!!!!!

Just a small update for now. We've been busy banging out a ton of product orders lately, but there's always something pretty cool going on. We are currently putting the finishing touches on the black twin turbo viper truck, and as well, should have plenty of updates this week, so I'll keep it short..... Enjoy!

The current state of the truck


Wrapping up the collectors. 5-1, T4 flanged








Runners starting to get mocked up, and tacked

I'm really not entirely certain what the goals are. I just know the customer wanted the opportunity to upgrade from the original setup to something that flowed better and looked better. As for power goals...well...we will have to just see where it ends up! lol

Power goal? Roast the tires in 5th on the highway at 100+ ? LOL. TT V10 should be nasty.
