Default Exhaust pipe source

Trying to piece together the remaining parts to build my downpipe but can't find a good source for aluminized steel exhaust pipe. Need about 5 feet of 3" and about 5 feet of 1.5" pipe. Found an ebay seller but he wants 20$ to ship a single piece of pipe that costs $15 so I'm attempting to find a more reasonable source with little luck.

Anyone have a good source for this stuff?

have you looked at www.onlinemetals.com ? I've ordered some aluminum bar from them before, but mainly because they're local to me. I think they have pipe too, but not sure if they have exactly what you want. they cut to order

I bought everything for the V8 exhaust -straights and bends - from Columbia River Mandrel Bends http://www.mandrel-bends.com/catalog/

Good prices and shipping.

That said, my local Advance Auto has straight sections of aluminized steel exhaust pipe in stock but I doubt they have 3".

Check local scrap metal recycling places. I as able to find about 15 feet of 3in stainless here locally at the recycling yard from a milk company that was torn down.

When I built the header back exhaust on my pickup, I opened the yellow pages and called the local exhaust shop. They sold me the pipe by the foot and were nice enough to pop a couple slip-joints in there for me.

It was fun driving the FE bigblock Ford on the street with open headers

jc whitney has a ton

you'll have to shop around because different shops have wildly different prices on random things.

I bought my 2.5" aluminized from Jegs. They were the cheapest (with shipping) that I could find at the time.
