Post Mandrel bent piping...any shops? (604)

Hello all! This is more directed towards 5zigen, and whoever else happens to be in the industry...oh well...everyone else help me out too!

I need to find a shop that can do mandrel bends, I've called a shop that Mopac highly recommends, and the guy said that there isn't a shop in town with the equipment to do it. Is he bs'ing? Cause I'm looking to put on a bigger midpipe

Thanks!

Not sure if there's anyone in town who had the equipment to do the mandrel bending but you can buy mandrel bent piping in various lengths and various angles. All you need is somebody to cut it and/or weld the proper pieces together.
As far as the work I've seen done, Specialty Engineering in New Westminister is the best around. They're very expensive and deal mainly in building tube framed GT cars but some of my friends have had intake and exhaust work done there, top notch stuff.

Hmm, probably lots of places. Specialty Engineering, Advance Automotive, probably Comptech, maybe even normal muffler shops.
Just go to any good shop and tell them what you want done and they should be able to do it, a mid pipe is no big deal. Specialty will be very expensive, Advance should be fairly cheap (talk to Johnny, he's the guy to deal with there), not sure what Comptech would be like for prices.

Mandrel bends: bending of pipes while keeping while maintaining the diameter of the section being bent

Comptech cant do pipes, they're more of a mechanic shop, but Specialty Eng in new West builds a lot of roadracer roll cages and cars so they should be able but probably expensive.

On that note, Orbiter and I were talking...and it would seem that the Impreza midpipe section isn't terribly "crooked"...so a regular crush bend shouldn't hurt performance too bad, as it would seem the biggest bend I already have mandrel bent (my fat 3" exhaust rear section). So the midpipe shouldn't HAVE to be mandrel bent as there doesn't appear to be much bends to begin with correct?

Muffler Tech on Kingsway in port coquitlam have a mandrel bending machine. A friend of mine had a full stainless mandrel-bent exhaust built by them for his ford ranger.

Yeah, everyone else would leave to i-club or something because we would constantly abuse our post editing and banning abilities and constantly create threads bragging about how great we are
