I was just about to say the same thing. From a welder'* standpoint, it looks like a 5-year-old welded some of those beads. The weld where the 3 pipes come together should be smoothed out in the flow area, and the one where the small pipe is coming in (EGR?), I think, should be flushed with the inner wall of the larger pipe.
EDIT: Sorry, already been pretty much covered...
