Great work there. Only one thing better than a turbo 6 and thats a turbo 8.

This is a quote from Zoom No124 that just came out.

Page 80 "picking the right kind of turbocharger exhaust manifold material is
a genuine catch-22 situation. By that we mean -and this is fact- what tends to
look the goods doesn't end up working the best. Its hard to resist the lure of a polished stainless manifold, so many put this on the top of their list when it comes time to choose a turbocharger system.
The reality is that from a material perspective, there is very little good about stainless steel, particularly the kinds of steel often used for high temperature turbocharger exhaust manifolds. Sit back and have a read of a material data sheet.......
A commonly used material - for the bling factor and its low price - is 316- grade schedule 10 stainless steel. It looks great when polished and is relatively cheapto purchase...... The actual raw data for the material is very scary, though with 316 sched 10 having an intermittent heat rating of 450 deg C and a continuous rating of over 300 deg C. While a 316 stainless manifold will put up with much higher temps showing no obvious side effect, even over short periods of time - the pure physics state that you are indeed irreversibly changing the state of the material.
The indicators of a stainless steel manifold starting to fail are darkness of welds and collector joints....... at this point heat has crystallised the material and no amount of restitching the cracks with a welder will fix it...."


Its a good article and I wholy agree with the author Martin Donnon

also referred to as hot shortness
heating beyond critical temp changes the grain structure (increases) plus the bigger the manifold the more stress is put on the pipework causing more vibration/movement causing work hardening also.

not that i'm by any means a manifold maker, just a boilermaker. but i'm keen to learn :)
