But...........titanium filler rod goes for over $100 lb, upwards of close to $150.

I wanted a "cheap" way to play with some titanium and actually be able to make a part from it. Its actually not "that" expensive.

would imagine they were made from grade 5 titanium or also known as 6al-4v. Guys at work always laugh at me when I made **** from high grade materials. They couldnt believe the cost on the inconel tubing i had bent to make rotated kits.

Interesting setup for a standard location turbo, should be interesting to see how the spool time differs for sure.

On a side note with the turbo mounted centrally how much piping length do you think you saved over the OE location?

Ya this is for tube frame Mendola suspension equipped Manx. Turbo size should be plenty big for such a lightweight chassis. Off the top of my head total of 5' of piping probably compared to an actual header.

That turbo placement with an air-to-water intercooler would be amazaballs on a Subaru.

Ya, im half tempted to make myself a set and run the smaller gtx3071r turbo since I just sold my radiator and intercooler and redoing the setup. Nice quick spooling setup for fun in the sierras.
