Hey all,
I am in the market to start gathering pipe, elbows ect for a nice airbox to throttle body setup.
Now i have seen the CHROME "Super Crap" Caliber Brand bends and sillycon joiners. BUT............
is it some what cheaper to get mild steel exhaust pipe bends?
I have been told they are not so cheap.
I know that it would require finishing / polishing or painting of the mild steel exhaust ect but that is no probs.

thanks in advance

MITCHY

there are 2 problems i find with mild steel ..
1 the heat that the steel will soak up compared to the factory plastic one is heaps..
2 the mild steel will rust internally after time.. and before you say no water get there, moisture in the air when cold or raining still gets in there....
