Thumbs down

I have a T04R on a Greddy log manifold in my RE swapped TII. I just need to know if I need a U-bend or a couple of 45 degree bends to build my DP out of. Let me know what you guys have used. I have to buy pre-bent stuff because no one in this shitty city has a mandrel bender that I can find. Thanks!!!

Wow, that looks really nice. From the looks of it, it looks like I can get two 45's on build it with that. I think I'm going to just wrap it for heat. My manifold and turbine housing are ceramic coated, should I still use a wrap on them too?
