Default my rt4wd wagon and my homemade turbo manifold

heres my wagon and my home made turbo mani tell me what ya guys think

so i just bought my rt back after selling it 2 years ago, and i missed it ever since so i finally got it back. as of now it has a d16y7, i need to make some sort of bracket to hold the half-shaft, i need to put the y7 oil pan back on, i need to but a alternator belt, have to get the ac likes and compressor, have to install the a6 flywheels and install the new clutch that i already ordered. it needs a new windshield, need a rear hatch window they installed like a 86 window or something cus its short like 3/4 inches on each side. i sold the car about 2 years ago for $2400 and i bought it back for $390 yes three hundred and ninety dollars lol.

Future mod:
gsr blades or se sunflowers
some type of sway bar for the rear maybe a modded da one, i have a welder and i fabricate alot, some aftermarket lca
polyurethane filled motor mounts and rear trailing arm bushings
-turboing the y7 using a tiny k03 turbo(which i already have) from a passant 1.8t should be very fun, making the manifold out of home-depot gas pipe elbows, dsm side mount intercooler and dsm 450cc
i got skunk2 coilovers i wanna install but i had put tein lowering springs in the rear and cut in the front, so for sure the skunk2 in the front but i dont know about the rear yet, i wanna lower the rear and front a lil more

tell me what u guys think and if anyone got question u are free to ask them....

this is how it looked when i went to pick it up i had to shovel it out

Is that welded cast iron? Didn't think that worked, but of course I'm new here. Any special welding wire for that?

Awesome wagovan btw.

welding on cast requires a nickel rod and its still not very structurally sound. over time from heat the welds are known to crack. but ive done it and not had a problem i believe it depends on the amount of carbon mixed in.

if im not mistaken the pipe you get from home depot is galvanized. you must remove the galvanized coating before welding as it produces a deadly gas adn it can kill you.....

Am I missing something? Are you going to cut a port and weld on the turbo flange to the manifold at a later time?
