I can't remember where I bought the bends for my IC piping.
I bought the exhaust bends from www.mandrelbendingsolutions.com as seconds.
They were $7 each for 3" stainless bends. You have to call to order seconds.
I would have bought my IC pipes from them too but I had already bought them before I stumbled across MBS.

Sporadic,

Is there any way I could get information on a turbo manifold and backpipe? I'm trying to get my turbo set up as well. I have a custom turbo kit that needs these 2 items. I didn't want to do anything until I got more information. I'm not as gearhead savvy as most of the people here in the FF forum. Any information that you could give would be greatly appreciated. thanks

What type of info do you need? Where I bought the manifold kit?
Measurements? Welding heat? Type of metal? Angles?

FSU focus. If you are not that inclined in welding then i would if i were you buy the manifold kit from JGS and then get yourself 2 flanges a SS 180 degree bend and a maybe 2 foot section of SS piping..in whatever size you want your down to be and have an exhaust shop weld it up for you. The only reason i say this is because it sounds like you have a kit where the intercooler piping is already all fabbed up so if you just bought a mani and DP, while it may fit the turbo , it will prolly leave you in need of fabricating your intercooler piping to fit. usually its done the other way...you make the manifold and downpipe to fit the turbo and car..then you do the intercooler piping to fit what you have done already. In your case like i said i would find a welder or a good exhaust shop---buy the bends and manifold kit---then have them make it right on your car. Make sure you put your intercooler on first and take the pipe that goes from the intercooler to the turbo with you and also the the pipe that goes from the cone filter to the turbo. this is what i would do and hope it helps you out some.

Sorry for the thread jack sporadic. Im liking the kit and hope that you see some nice 13-14 second times at the track instead of 16!!! Good job!

Cayres,

Is there a JGS website that I could order the mani kit from? I've got some IC piping, but I'm not sure if it's going to line up properly. I do have an exhaust shop in mind. I took my kit over to them and asked them about the mani. They recommended that I find places that have them before they tried putting the kit on.
