Hi guys,

Has anyone went around making there own exhaust manifold for a busa mini im just trying to keep costs down and was wondering is it possible to make your own using an original manifold baring in mind i have the new frame where the pipes have to go around the side of the engine. any help will be great.

Thank Alan

Think you may be confusing plenum with platinum...

Stainless steel or titanium is the usual materials, both can be welded with a tig and the correct rods and gas, not really a home option for most people. There is nothing stopping you from making a exhaust manifold from mild steel or low grade stainless and weld it with a mig

Yes stainless 4-2-1 ceramic coated.

Just one of, sat on the shelf. Not been advertised however I'm sure it would fly off the shelf if it was.

Let me know if you want a picture.
