Default looking for spare 2.5" IC piping

I'm posing this here because this is something that I don't want spend a bunch of $ on. I'm looking for a couple of short pieces of 2.5" aluminum piping (like you would use for intercooler charge pipes). I'm hoping that someone out there has a couple of spare pieces that they are willing to get rid of. The length I talking about is pretty short (basically from the air cleaner right behind the headlight, to the inlet of the turbo...with a 90 deg turn and a MAS in between). I can get my own silicone couplers, but I'm hoping someone out there has some extra piping.

Thanks for your help.
Tony

Depending on the length required, you will probably spend more money shipping the tube then it's worth. You might try local metal shops.

I'm not looking for a freebie, but I'm not looking to pay full price either.

OK, no freebie, but it not what you would pay elsewhere. And, IMHO it's much better pipe. I used it in my recent IC/Pipe project. It's @ Max-Redline.com.

Auto parts stores carry (here anyway) carry exhaust pieces of all length's. You should check one.
