broke vanos exhaust hub

This was a failed exhaust hub that my brother and I modified. The new tabs are made from 4130 chrome moly. The ring is pressed over the hub .250 then tig welded with 312 ss. The dimension are the same other than the tabs being thicker. We need more hubs too fix so if you have one let me know
