Funny, they didn't mention welding the tubes to the cast... that is a known weak link in an 8.8. Funny thing is, I know that and have an outstanding welder (Person: Me, Machine: Hobart 210) but neither of mine have been done.

it takes quite a bit to spin the housing.. Its an upgrade that might as well be done though.
