I'm an idiot

Don't know how this happened other than pure stupidity. 2 questions. Do I dare have this fixed with the amount of boost I plan on running? Or try and find just the right side? Or pony up yet again for the whole Monty ? Oops that was 3 questions. Heeeeeeelp

My advice would be don't even consider a repair. If the repaired part should fail in a way that a piece ended up inside your intake.....goodbye motor. Be conservative-get a replacement part and sleep well.You will feel better and so will your build.

That would be an easy repair for a good TIG welder.

I know and I have a great guy down the street. I'm truly on the fence. This build is at the 3 1/2 month limit and is making me nuts and the intercooler should be here next week. This sux

Once repaired, no amount of boost you throw at is will do anything to it. I would have it fixed, without hesitation, if it were mine (depending on what the welder says, of course).

Find an AWS certified welder and you'll be back in business.

Easily repaired. I've modified these 3.2 intakes and they weld fine, strength won't be an issue.

Not a difficult repair. Bite the bullet and get it done. You won't be sorry.

aw Frank, shoot - I was all set to click on this post of yours and bust on you for plagiarizing my God Given Rights to that subject line...

...and then I saw the carnage, and making fun of you just didn't feel right.

Sorry to see that brutha. I'd totally weld that and run it no worries, but I'm no sexpert... tho... I did stay @ a Holiday Inn Sexpress somewhere at somepoint...

Really lookin forward to you virgin pop'age (you must be walkin around sportin permawood)... you'll get there soon enough... hang in there.

Hey Frank, cast aluminum welding could be challenging, but doable with the right TIG welder and proper pre-heat treatment... After done, don't overtorque that particular lobe.

It's interesting that it's the same as mine. I had attributed the failure of mine to metal fatigue from using the stud boss on that runner to support the rear of a full bay intercooler.
