Ray I took numbers off a nitro pipe and angles then subtracted wall thickness and added back the titanium wall thickness.

Just stick to the original design at first and see what it dose. That way you can compare apples to apples and see if it worth the effort to do more.

If need be make the stinger larger that way you can bush it to test stinger size changes.

Make the front tube so it will slide over a header. Preferably a 1 1/2 deg tapered header.

Nice job Charles. Titanium is the next best material under stainless steel because it has the lowest thermal conductivity. I'm still using  .015" to .018" thick #1018 cold rolled sheet steel.

Yup, thought so.  I found a welder here that did a few (aluminum) pipes for me like that, amazing stuff!

 

Is that your line of work?  Know someone?
