Default Homemade wastegate elbow

My homemade wastegate elbow so that my hood can close. Ghetto as ---- but works great and doesn't leak. In other words, does it's job.

Not bad for $2 in material/gas/electricity. A plasma cutter would be awsome to add to my arsenal.

For some reason, I got 3 of these in [cheap] stainless when I odrered from SSautocrap (wg and fmic). They jiped me on the pictured dumptube, I really wanted the SS tubing for other crap.
