either mild or stainless steel

mild steel should be painted to stop rust flakes entering the intake.

they are very rarely bent up - usually welded 3" bends

Just about any exhaust shop can make them up

Is there any reason why you couldn't get one of these made out of 3" aluminium???

I just thought aluminium would be lighter and less prone to heat soak... of course it would cost more though...
