    For what it's worth almost all of my welds on my exhaust we're done with a 95 argon 5 CO2 and regular mild steel wire however I do live in Alabama and we can't even spell rust

    argon-helium-co2. I just stated what is ideal to use. You could probably get away with C25 since it's just exhaust. I live in socal so no rust either. All my exhaust is mild right now. Only broke my turbo off once because it slammed into the hood from jumping.

    If you get cracks down the road you might want to change it up.

    I'm going to pick up a small spool of flux cored SS which is gasless. I just want to see how clean I can lay it down.

    I am using the highest argon % available. That way it will just work with the aluminum, stainless, and titanium. One gas for all.

    I haven't pulled the trigger yet just because of time. Doing a decent amount of reading on it heard people like it for the thick stuff like sch 40. Seems like the flux would be good at preventing sugaring.

    edit: sorry my bad let me find the fluxed one

    Well, finally had a little free time to weld my MAF flange to the IC pipe just before the throttle body... I think it came out pretty decent! IMG_20171214_111940_01.jpg
