I've seen that video a while back.

Just wondering, any reason why none of the single turbo manifolds for our cars are made of Inconel? Would it just be overkill for our cars? I just read a decent tech article on the metal over at burns stainless and I'm suprised that I haven't seen a manifold made of that material...unless I'm wrong and they have been around.

You can get one, but it's VERY pricey and you have to have it custom made. I know Audi has one for their cars that VW guys like to swipe. To a point, it may be overkill. Unless you're racing the car, I don't want to say it's pointless, but in a DD it may be a bit much. Sure would not have to worry about cracking, that is for sure.
