Now Tig is the shit for exhaust welding but requires a few other skill-sets and equipment that most wont have access to. In either case fabrication details like back purging the pipes when welding (like what 89T has done here) helps minimize corrosion from the inside out. devil is in the details

    I didn't see the pipe sections well earlier on FB, but i realized these have a nice bevel for butt joining
    Cool man thanks for the info I'll definitely be looking into it more

    The idea behind it was to keep it as compact as possible, yet keeping the runners equal length.

    89T is putting some careful thought into HIS design and fabrication rather than slapping some haggered stuff together with little to no thought at all...
    Roughly half dozen things can be pointed out in the image that reflects that.
