My shop!

Actually we did use a tight radius 90 from ATP (I have an account with them now so I get their stuff for right around what WOT sells it for here, so I just get it directly from them to save him the hassle, time, and I have them to bitch to when they ship the wrong stuff which seems to be rare) and a Burns stainless transition. All other material I get thru my warehouse.

EDIT: Replace all "my" with "my dad's". Thank you.

I need to fix my exhaust. It sounds like a weedwacker at WOT. Nice work!

No. for turbo-back stuff:
i use vibrant "j bends" purchased thru the store's warehouse, and tighter-radius 120's from atp, and smooth transitions in sizes besides 2.5-3 from Burns (2.5 to 3 I use vibrant)

aluminum intake stuff:
vibrant 90's, straights from a local metal supply company, I have a beader

Manifolds:
head flanges from ETD, weld-ells from mcmaster, turbo flanges from vibrant, turbonetics, or atp

I wish I could. Discounts are given to people sporting large Shore Motorsports stickers on their cars.

Or you need to want something that hasn't been done before and I'd want to do.

I'm do not have a very good business sense unfortunately.
