    You can't bend them. I used them on my Manicooler as runners...

    Try to bend them and the bottom will fold, the top will stretch, and it will collapse on itself...I tried years ago.

    probably the best way is to cut and add angles, & weld

    Only way to bend that is by "pieing" a piece out then re-welding. We do this on flat pipe (oval) for exhaust. Cool thing about this is no matter how hard a bend you relly donm`t lose cfm if done right.

    You can't mandrel bend oval extruded aluminum, especially 1/8th thick stuff...best to go with prebent aluminum tubing, rip it along the center, and patch in flat stock...As HOSS said, you can retain volume that way....

    PLUS if you do it that way, it gives you more control over the taper for proper acoustical resonance and hypersonic compression of the intake sound waves and their relative reaction when the valves open, both at low and high rpm.........




    ..................If you don't know about what I just wrote, educate yourself on it before you build anything
