Guys. Im after a Mandrel intake for the EF, with the bend all the way to the intake (not using the EL peice).

Does anyone know who in Brisbane will do these? - a good exhaust shop?

The one I normally use doesnt do them.

If they can weld then they can make them.
All you or they need is a box of pre-bent mandrel bent pieces of pipe, then they add straight bits where needed and weld it all up.
Any good exhaust place should be able to do this.

Agreed - but seems that a lot of places dont want to do it.

its a little more than that.

a few pieces will need to be cut & welded on an angle to get the right shape. Your looking at a bit of money for someone to create a good design, plus for the stainless pipe

I was looking at potentially using normal exhaust pipe - and painting.
Not after the under bonnet look.

this took me bout half a day to nut out and purge weld. all 316 s/s. silicone tube sections are not fkn cheap!

at commercial prices for labour & parts i can see where defilipo gets their price from, not that i agree with it. if your going to make more than one of something you can make jigs,buy in bulk etc it's called production < meant to reduce price.

if you have no luck in getting one yet try rob bliss exhausts, if they dont do it the inly thing i could reconmend is buy a doughnut(its a mandrel bent bent ring) an buy a metre of straight pipe an go to an engineering work shop, they arent that hard to make it just takes time to cut every thing right the first time

There is a good offer still up for a piece that uses the EL adapter.

For $150 inc. postage you cant really go wrong when you would be looking at at LEAST $200 for an exhaust shop to do one, probably around the $250 mark is what they'd charge you.

Here's a link to the thread:

Work still in progress - doesnt rattle, but will be getting two mounts welded on to retain it anyway. Will also get a tidy up and paint.
