Thanks for all the replies.
I think this tread is quite helpful.
I will be doing my exhaust this week and will post the pics on this tread to make it more helpful to others.
I will be going straight pipe, from turbo to tail in mild steel and will have to do the cut and weld thing, since no body in Graaff-Reinet can bend 3".

Paul, as far as I know the places mentiond in Gauteng dont bend the pipe, they weld in manderal bends.
Bending a 3" pipe actually restricts the flow

Die Trol is op die lift. Hopelik sal dit met 'n 3" exhaust weer af ry van die lift af.

Tinus, jy praat van toe draai van die eerste stuk pyp. Wat kan ek gebruik om dit mee toe te draai? Ek sien hy is maar baie naby aan die firewall?
