Default Turbo Exhaust Flanges 3/8" Stainless Group Buy

I have a guy here in Dallas that is going to cust some 3/8" stainless D Port Flanges for me and is willing to give a group rate for multiple sets.

If anyone is interested I am going to be making mine in Stainless and thanks to Kristinn will be using his Cad drawings.

Let me know who is interested and I can get a head count and get a total $ per unit.

Alan.

They will be for each port. Kristinn supplied the CAD file and said that the outer flanges fit perfectly but the center port has to have the bolt holes elongated slightly...no big deal. I am going to be using it anyway and setting up a twin turbo set up with stainless headers.

I will post the cost breakdowns tomorrow after I talk to Joe at R&D Machine. He is a fellow pontiac racer that is the shop foreman and said they will have no problem doing it but will need at least 2 or 3 sets to make it worth their while. I priced the set at Stans Headers and they were about $139.20 for mild steel plus shipping. I dont know what stainless would run but I am sure that it is more.

R&D can supply both but their shop rate is around$65 per hour. It takes 10 minutes to cut each flange so about 30 min per side. I am going to guess that material cost is around $25 ish. If we get a bulk order that number will most likely go down.

I will find out more and post tomorrow. You interested?

Alan.

I started with one pice and cut them up. I hated them didn't like to bolt up from on bolt up to another. They see tremendous heat and move around quite a bit. Its nice to be able to move them if you need to to line them up.

Spoke to Joe at R&D Machine. They are making adjustments to the cad that Kristinn said about the center bolt holes being off a bit. I should have some numbers by tomorrow or Thursday.

I will post as soon as I know.

I might be interested in a set of round port flanges, with ports sized for 1.5" sch40 weld ells. (OD=1.90" ID=1.61"). I assume it would be best to size the flange so the pipe slides inside, allowing weld on both sides, but that would require surfacing the mating surface. I will have to think about that a bit.

I don't know what the size of the ports are in the CAD file that I received from Kristinn. PM me and I'll send it to you and you can see if that is what you need.

I am still waiting to get info back on a quote....damn they are taking a long time!

I am starting to get a bit pissed at the wait. I am going to call them tomorrow and find out an answer. I have emailed them twice and no response. If I don't get the answer by tomorrow I am going to find another machine shop.
