Mandrel Bent tubing ensures unrestricted flow via “kink free” bends. Mandrel bending is a Computer controlled, industrial process that Muffler shops CANNOT perform. For instance a muffler shop bent 2-1/2”system will measure 2” or less at the bends, whereas a mandrel bent 2-1/2” system is 2-1/2” throughout the entire pipe. TA Exhaust Pipes are aluminized 16 gage steel, for the best combination of corrosion resistance and value. These systems are slip fit and can be clamped or welded per your preference. We recommend installing the systems starting from the back and working forward, to ensure proper tailpipe and muffler location. The collector reducers are modified by cutting to accommodate the different header and muffler lengths. Doing so eliminates the need to modify any of the mandrel bent pipes.
Includes all pipes, hangers, clamps & hardware. Mufflers sold separately. Notes:
1. Systems are designed to connect to full length aftermarket headers, please specify collector size when ordering. Downpipes are available for many Buick applications, in order to connect to exhaust manifolds or our Shorty headers. 2. Systems are not compatible with Fbody convertibles that have a reinforcing underbody pan. 3. F & XBody systems.
