Default Exhaustion

Exhaustion must be what stopped us from posting these pictures earlier. Now that it’s fresh again in our minds, let’s show you some welding porn!

There’s been one job we’ve totally lapsed on covering while it’s been unfolding. So let’s change that. The underbody you see below belongs to a W221 S65 AMG. Yes, the 65, with its biturbo V12. Either way, both the owner of this car and another owner in a different state saw our old YouTube video of a different S65 exhaust we made, and they wanted one each. Once they placed their orders, we found small spaces in the workflow and filled them with varying manners of cutting and welding.




We have a good number of weld pictures to show you today, to make up for lost time so to speak. Since we regularly refer to our welding as “weld porn,” instead of your usual filler text on the blog, we’ll just intersperse the welding pictures with dialogue that you’d probably find in an actual automotive-related pornographic moving picture. Let’s title it “Fluid Flush.”



[Intro: A buff man in his mid-to-late-twenties arrives at a local garage in a beat-up car that's sputtering and smoking. This garage is offering "fluid flushes" as the special. The garage is staffed by a lone mechanic, a buxom woman whose hair probably contains more chemicals than most cans of brake cleaner. Her shirt, as you'd expect, is rather ill-fitting.]

Man: Looks like I’ve got a few problems here. I’d like you to give it a deep examination, and flush my fluids once you’re done.

Ms. Mechanic: Not a problem at all. I’ll flush any fluid you’d like me to. (suggestive wink) Just take a seat in the waiting room and you’ll be able to watch me work on it.

Man: Actually, do you mind if I watch in here? While I can’t do it myself, I do enjoy watching others get their hands dirty.





Ms. Mechanic: It looks like I’ve found your problem. See this pipe here, in your engine? This pipe is under a lot of pressure, which is making it far too stiff. I’ll have to release some of that pressure so it can go back to a more flexible state.





[The mechanic is bent over the fender, elbows deep into the engine bay.]

Ms. Mechanic: Damn, your pipe is really far up in there! It might take a while to get it off, but I’m doing the best job I can for you.

Man: Don’t worry, you’re doing great. Just don’t forget about flushing my fluids afterward.

Ms. Mechanic: Oh, fear not, I would never forget to flush your fluids.






Okay, we’re just going to stop there before it gets too lascivious. We hope you enjoyed our straying away from the standard boilerplate blog post. We’re working on the mounting pieces for the first copy of the exhaust at this moment, and the work on the second copy is happening at the same time as the first. It’s all moving along at a quick pace, so we should have some more for you soon! Until then, it’s almost Friday! Get your Rebecca Black mixtapes ready.

I actually quit the Computer Engineering program at UIUC to get my English degree instead.

Better give me some FORCED INDUCTION for 10 grand.

A compressor feeding pressure into another greatly increases the total compression ratio of the entire system. This intake pressure is called boost.

You and I could probably start writing auto-themed shitty softcore pornos.

While this isn't the worst idea I've ever had to make money, it's close.

So this entire time I was reading this like a gay porno, but when I read the one on the FMU website I noticed it said "Ms. Mechanic" where as in here it just says "Mechanic".

You should probably fix that before all of S|W thinks you're gay, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Craig told me that too. NOBODY READ MY INTRO DESCRIBING HER AS FEMALE

I was trying to defeat the standardized gender norms inherent in the automotive industry. Plus, I couldn't figure out how to write a male mechanic saying things about HER rods being stiff. So I just made the mechanic a lady.

I totally forgot to ninja-edit this entry. Now I will.
