Anywhere after turbo is OK. Temp delta over turbo itself is few hundred degrees. If you put it too near exhaust you will get faulty readings at idle.

Thank you for your time,

Rudy, I thought the welding was very good, looks as though you got some good penetration and are left with a nice flat finish on the top. Good Job.
If I was local to you I would pay you to weld mine for me if you would do it for me.
I completed and passed a mig weld course last year so I appreciate how difficult it is to weld properly.

I bought a TIG unit last year and it is a whole other world from MIG or ARC welding. Its so quiet and peaceful. It is like using a magic wand on metal that slowly liquifies and blends with the other metal. Good gas welders can do the same thing but with a lot more heat. The problem I ran into with the bung was that the bung was very easy to melt but the old SS exhaust pipe, although much thinner, was very hard to melt, probably due to the heat cycles it has been through. You are correct about penetration. I make sure that both pieces turn to liquid before I add filler. I still don't have a good feel with foot the foot control yet. There is a thumb wheel that fits on the gun and I may try that.
