And Power Surge, it actually is mandrel bent, it's just a fairly old machine, and it actually had to put forth quite a bit of effort to bend the tubing I got. It was fairly thick tubing, much better than the crap I had put on my '11 Sonata, but we won't even get into how bad that thing sounded.
A mandrel machine is over 20ft long and it draws, well, a mandrel through the inside of the pipe as it bends it so you have the full ID of the pipe throughout the bend. Your pipe was bent on a typical crimp style exhaust shop bender. Still works fine, but it's not mandrel bent.
