Thanks for the warning.Remember If you do happen to WELD UP AN elbow be sure & clean the inside , so no dingle berry's can get into your turbo . While I worked for the DODGE HOUSE We had out local machine shop weld on one & It came back to us with trash left in it . Our shop manager made the other repair shop pay for a new Turbo .
i FELT IT WAS AS MUCH OUR fault as it was that other shop . But about 10 other Techs & service people told me how wrong I was .. I STILL feel the way I did.
But it can get costly . Just a warning .
