I believe the key word here is Mandrel bend shop !
As I discuss from pervious threads on the subject, there are only a handful of shops that own a Mandrel bend machine.
Your local Mom N Pap Muff. shop is more likely not to have one of these very expensive machine. The majority of them uses crimp bent pipe crushers!
Your other option is to purchase pre bent mandrel bent pipes and have the local muff. shop weld them for ya at a very reasonable price.

Instead of bashing on people, why don't you give a name of a local shop to help out

I'll probably be doing this over the next couple of weeks. I have to order a high flo racing cat, pick out a muffler, and a high flow turbo exhaust discharge. Once I get these items in, having the pipe mandrel bent will be my last of the agenda. Will probably take me 3 weeks to complete but I can do the entire turbo back for under $500 this way.

If you want a loud muff.... the Borla XR1 is damn hard to beat.... and not to mention it flows nearly as well as straight pipe.....

Wouldn't be able to hear my sound system with a loud muffler :P

Any suggestions on a deep throated muffler that doesn't drone and isn't too loud?
