So I cut up a 90 degree mandrel bend to get 2 35's out of it and welded some straight pipe to the stub ends. I figured that after fit-up when everything is cut to length, I'd weld my new pieces directly to the manifolds (after cutting off the stubs coming out of them). My new pieces would then be clamped tight to the mufflers and the mufflers hard-bolted to the rear footpeg mounts. Good idea except for expansion. Isn't something going to break in a rigid setup like that?
