I've used around 10 90 degree bends, to get from the turbo outlet around to an EF/EL style intake manifold. EB/ED will not need as many, maybe 2-3 less.

Good luck..

I used 3 inch, bur its up to you. Either way you will still need the same number of bends.
I got mine from a steal distributor, and they cost me around $21 per 3 inch 90 degree in stainless. From an exhaust shop they wanted $25 per bend in mild steal. So it pays to shop around. 45 degree bends costs me $19.
