    I didn't have a 45 in the shiny stuff lol have to buff it up I guess. I found the best way to make the waste gate hump was by figuring out how big of a cavity is required and mark it out. Then split the area with a plasma cutter and peel it up. Then us a piece of scrap pipe and cut it into a triangular piece and beat the piss out of until it fits over the hump. It's tough covering the opening and ensuring you have enough room for your bolts. I think I might stud the hole furthest forward on the turbo.
