I have had parts laying around for a week or two and I finaly found time to start this project after lunch today. Just got done with the headers about 2 hours ago and thought I would post a couple pics.

Yes, my welding looks horrible. I have way to big of wire for my new welder and I never could get it set to run smooth with that wire.:bang I have got to do some grinding and cleaning up on the headers but they will work for the fair pulls next week.:thumbsup

Darrell,

Looks cool...but didn't you try this in the past...with a couple of turbos in parallel? I thought you couldn't get them to spool in the past. You doing something different about that this time?

Yup you are correct. The last parallel project was a budget build with 2 stock turbos.

These turbos come from Bell specificly for my application.:thumbsup

Awesome, i've always wondered why there weren't more parallel turbo setups on 7.3's. Hope it works well for you. Let us know.

Way cool--even though I've held a MIG gun and stuck metal together (the bead probably wasn't very strong and was DEFINITELY ugly), I'm always impressed by people with fabrication skills, especially for an oddball/one-off project like that.

I have been welding for years and I love to fabricate and see what I can do. I just hate having issues with my welder as there nothing more aggrivating then having to back and dress up bad welds.:bang

Yup.... The last parallel turbos drew alot of attention when I was driving it but it also did not have a hood on. I am planning to conceal all of this except for the 2 stacks coming out the hood.:D
