I had a few crack before I did that and that fixed it. The tubes are nothing special. Just don't focus on one spot too much to prevent warping.
Good advice. The only thing I would add is to peen the weld, either with a ballpeen hammer, or a needle scaler after you do each pass, and to wrap the pumpkin/tubes in an old blanket or two when you're done to let it cool slowly.

$175 for everything you see. The 5100's are corroded, but they have less than 5k miles on them.
