Default Stainless log for the Shelby Daytona

Just got done making a 304 stainless log manifold for my Daytona Shelby. Its my first time working with the thick schedule 10 tubing and I know it kinda sucks, but I hope to get better. No back purging doesnt help, I tried to do 2 passes, but a full penetration pass was not working due to all the contanimation on the back side. I did bevel everything, so there is enough fill that the header should be strong. I made out ahead money wise for sure. 80 bucks in material for this vs. buying one from the vendors for $550

Now its off to the machine shop to get the flanges decked flat. 304 stainless sure does like to move when you weld it.

Damn! One of my all time favorite Mopars now with log goodness... that looks sweet. Seems pretty nice for your first time using that material.

Nice setup. It's nice to see people working on those cars, you don't see many of them.

Looks great. Interesting that you had to modify it to clear the IM. Your next project should be to cut up that intake and make a better one. Those things are pieces of ----.
