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.

Bob, Any idea what a set of these in stainless will cost?
Demolded, Diablo,Daytona Spoiler, Billet Technologies Pistolgrip, JBA Cat-back, XPS mids, GSM CAI but waiting to see what Dyno Steve's self-cooling system is for his CAI, Honeycomb grille with heritage R/T emblem and a lot of parts painted Metalflake silver and TorRed!
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?
Bob, Cool Thank you for the info, I'll keep an eye out!
