For sale 2.5" inch mandrel bent 2.5" stainless steel exhaust pipe. Weighs about 14lbs vs over 70 for stock system.

Read about the benefits of mandrel bent vs. crush bend vs. multiple welds here:
http://e30m3performance.com/installs/insta...xhaust/exh1.htm (http://e30m3performance.com/installs/installs-2/exhaust/exh1.htm)

The pipe is made out of 304 SS, it has 6 bends and one TIG weld. It has about 12" of extra length on both ends.


Here's vid of the car with that system installed:

"Right click save as"

It is not very loud, but if I were to use it on the street I'd put a bit bigger muffler and maybe a resonator on it. In the vid car has a small Magnaflow muffler p/n 14326 which is 2.5 offset/2.5 center

Some pics here (you can see the muffler and a single tip):

$315 neg shipped to continental US.

Is this pipe still for sale? Is it the correct bend for any E30, it appears to be? If you have sold it would tell me who bent it for you?

Thanks, Ian

Thanks for your reply. By any chance, do you know where the pipe came from or who bent it?
Thanks, Ian

Ian, sorry I haven't checked the responses for a while. I had a shop in columbus, OH bent it for me. If there's interest I can have some more made.
