Default garrett t25 factory saab turbo..

Hey guys, im boosting my stock motor 95 civic dx d15b7 with a garret tb25 unit off a saab.i got the turbo for a good price of $180 shipped off ebay in great working condition..Could not pass up the deal. only thing is as any t25 unit owner knows the exducer on the turbine side is 3 bolt.. idk where to get a 3 bolt flange to make my own downpipe.. as its cast iron its "harder to weld" then steal. i wouldnt know i have never welded it. anyways i was thinkin of welding a 90 degree bend right to the turbo to a 2 bolt flange to the rest of the downpipe.. any ideas or input on where i could get a 3 bolt flange for the turbo.. or if its alright to weld to the cast iron.??.I have a lincoln gas mig welder.. thank you for any input or ideas.

don't weld to cast. It won't last.

Try here for a flange:

or you could HMT one up. Get a piece of 3/8" mild steel, drill a 2" hole with a hole saw and the 3/8" holes for the mounting and grind away the excess...

do you know anyone that has access to a mill, laser cutter, flame cut or plasma?

or you could head to the junk yard and pick up a down pipe off a saab.
