    Like I posted earlier,Im sitting at home due to back surgery. I got bored and decided to hobble down into the garage and see if I could still weld lol.

    Nothing fancy,just two standard Stanley stainless steel utility razor blades .024" thick,I didnt have any appropriate sized stainless tig wire so I just fused them together. Came out pretty good and kinda helped with how miserable I have been feeling mentally. Full penetration too Click here to enlarge

    Its the only way to do it, its bought in sheets, rolled, then pie cut as you cannot bend it. Welding Stainless is like a 3 on a difficulty scale of 1-10, Ti is like an 8.

    Unobtanium buys seamless pipes/tubes and pi cuts them for bends. It is true you can't bend it though. They are making a pretty sweet Titanium quad exhaust for a LSX powered 918 race car right now.

    Ti will sugar much quicker than SS,but personally I dont think its twice as hard to weld like you said. I think its easier,if you have the right wire,it flows like honey unlike stainless.

    Fabbing/bending? Yes absolutely agree with you 110% that is much harder.At what diameter do you have to start rolling&fabbing your own pipe? I have several sizes ranging from .375" to 1.125" its expensive but readily available

    Ive done several repairs on titanium motorcycle headers/cans as well as some fabbing/brackets,etc. And the Ti wire is $75/lb last time I bought some which is ridiculous. Amazing how many
    "friends" with race-bikes you make when they find out you weld titanium lol

    I kind of like it. Reminds me of the porsche exhausts he makes. Sounds pretty good also. But I think I would've spent the extra cash and made it a dual and had it tuck more.

    I wish I could afford titanium for my car haha. Titanium systems for bikes are very common though, and can be had for sub 2,000 on an inline 4. All things considered that's not bad. But the car has substantially more, and bigger, piping.
