Lol, sorry I meant to address this shockingly expensive stuff you posted here. I'm not paying 50 dollars for one 90* bend. There has to be a cheaper solution even if it involves pie cuts.

Gotta pay to play sometimes. I've never seen anything cheaper for super tight radius bends unless they were custom made with 'pie cuts'

Rick, the guy who had NO time even for you? I'll pass. And Id rather have Wayne do it vs someone who's never made one before.

Lol, I have no reason to go with anyone else. You're my man. I am extremely happy with my current setup (minus not being able to run a/c) and I know that you're getting better and better.

And 32 bucks is getting closer to reasonable. Probably the best I can do actually.

And just got off the phone with columbia river, best they can do is a 4" radius. So ATP it is!

Edit: that doughnut would actually be a pretty good deal if I could get 4 downpipes out of it though.

Even if you get 3 down pipes from that donut it's good.

spool data on a 2001 with VVT and a big turbo = very good.

They do make a "shorty' that's pretty nice.

and Tim should copy it.

I have never tried to pretend it is possible for me to go without a/c. Hell, even the Miata with a/c, I sometimes end up sweaty just because it can't keep up. Miata without a/c would only get driven if it was under 60 degrees.

Wayne, nice looking mani!! If I ever boost a BP I will be calling in all the favors that you don't owe me, in order to get my greasy meat hooks on one of your manifolds. Looks similar the the mani I am running on my conversion.

By the way why not go with ebay mandrel bends for a downpipe?
