Default Chev in-line 6 headers fab

So I spent about 2 weeks thinkin how to create a bend tight enough to get under the offy intake manifold. No shop could get me a tight enough bend. After experimenting I came up with cut sections. The whole headers will wind up costing about $80.

Cutting and welding small pieces together to get bends seems to be in vogue in the motorcycle custom world at the moment. Seems to work well enough.
