Mandrel or Machine Bent?

I'm about to get dual exhaust in about a month. I was wondering which is better, Mandrel or Machine bent? Is there even really much a difference? Which ones cheapest? Which has the best sound?

yeah, you want mandrel, machine is cheaper. But there are Mandrel machine bent pipes too.

Just stay away from aluminized pipes, stick with stainless, they'll last longer.

Doesn't make much of a diff re; sound.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

The general rule is that you must go 1/4 inch larger on a ''machine bend' system to get the same flow as a mandrel bent system.
