Mandrel Bent tubing ensures unrestricted flow via “kink free” bends. Mandrel bending is a Computer controlled, industrial process that Muffler shops CANNOT perform. For instance a muffler shop bent 2-1/2”system will measure 2” or less at the bends, whereas a mandrel bent 2-1/2” system is 2-1/2” throughout the entire pipe. TA Exhaust Pipes are aluminized 16 gage steel, for the best combination of corrosion resistance and value. These systems are slip fit and can be clamped or welded per your preference. We recommend installing the systems starting from the back and working forward, to ensure proper tailpipe and muffler location. The collector reducers are modified by cutting to accommodate the different header and muffler lengths. Doing so eliminates the need to modify any of the mandrel bent pipes.
Includes all pipes, hangers, clamps & hardware. Mufflers sold separately.
Notes: 1. Systems are designed to connect to full length aftermarket headers, please specify collector size when ordering. Downpipes are available for many Buick applications, in order to connect to exhaust manifolds or our Shorty headers. 2. G-Bodyapplications with single hump transmission cross members will need to modify their existing cross member or install an aftermarket dual hump type. 3. Systems need to be modified for Station Wagon applications in consideration of the spare tire well. 4. On `64-`67A-body, ALL El Caminos and Station Wagons - the exhaust systems exit approximately 8” short of the rear bumper. Most customers seem to prefer that exit location, however, use TA extension kits listed above to locate the exhaust tip at the rear bumper. 5. On A body models with through the bumper exhaust, our systems end short of the bumper but properly positioned, use extensions, aftermarket tips or original tips to complete. 6. Systems are based on long case mufflers, however short case mufflers will work also,some applications will require additional pipe to compensate for shorter mufflers.
