    Thumbs up Mandrel bent Blastin Bob's coming soon!!

    I signed my life away today for a brand new mandrel bender and I should know in a day or so when to expect it. I am working on a stainless tubing supplier but since my purchase quantities will not be large and the quality stainless I want is not cheap stainless these kits will demand a premium.

    FYI : (The stainless steel tubing market is going up like gasoline so if your in the market for a high end stainless cat-back you best not wait too long or you could end up paying much more in the coming months).


    The aluminized steel kits will be more mainly from the cost of bending and not too much on the material end.
    I don't plan on eliminating my press bent part numbers for those that don't care what method is used for bending the tubing.

    They are behind, as expected. The tooling was "supposed to be" in their hands by the 28th if July, it didn't leave Italy until the 21st. They have the bender but need the tooling to set it up with the tubing samples I sent in. I'm crossing my fingers that I will have it in the next 3-4 weeks.

    Ballpark $60-70 more per set.

    The bender arrived as a surprise yesterday. It wasn't supposed to be here until the 18th. I have an appointment with the rep next Wednesday for training and I should be able to get the aluminized stuff out shortly after that. The stainless will follow.

    YES. Another way to spend money! You going to be doing anything creative for us 3.5 V6'ers? A "Y" kit perhaps, with a really quiet set of reso's on the back?

    I will make all the existing kits mandrel and am looking into a true dual kit for the v-6 with possibly maintaining the axle black kits I already have.
