    where to get 4inch(102mm) stainless steel tube bends.

    The place i used to use just got a new machine and can only do up to 3 inch now.

    There is some on ebay but 22-48 each when i was paying 14 each i wanted to see if anyone knew a good place to go?

    thanks.

    When I did my exhaust I couldnt find decent stainless for a decent price. It was all either very thick walled and as a result very heavy or thin walled and prohibitively expensive.

    In the end I sliced a 3" pipe down its length and welded strips in to make it a ln oval. Works well as it maintains good ground clearance whilst having excellent flow.

    Without knowing where you are needing it to run to, id suggest you look at doing the same. My downpipe is in fact an old stainless backbox that we used the outer pipe from. All in it runs from turbo into 5.25" downpipe into 6"x3" oval into twin 3" systems

    Yeah I did think of putting a spilt in from say 12" behind the turbo in to 2 3inch Just means double the fab work as My old twin turbo system is very different to the single set up.

    if I run 4 inch pipe I will run it from the turbo to the back of the car.

    I've got just a few 4" x 90 degree stainless bends here, how many do you need?

    Edit : and 4" x 45 degree as well.

    Are you the same 800bhp as on ebay? 22 each bend?

    Off the top of my head I need 1x 90 degree and then 5 or 6 45 degree Pm me a price.

    I contacted jetex when I was building mine. The response wasnt the most helpful. They just said they had no stock and didnt know when they would have some
