You'd be better off, getting some tubing and bending it yourself with a torch

Just trailer to the shop and get it done.

It sucks... It will rust out at every bend and clamp that you use.

Every time I have ever gotten a custom exhaust system I have cringed at the workmanship, fit, routing, and bizzare use of hangers I see.
I am strongly considering using that flex pipe for some tight compound angle bends with my new engine. If it is 304 stainless how is it going to rust through?

Most of my exhaust is 2.5" custom bent stainless.
I have about 1.5 ' of flex tubing.
But, this is the stuff from a big truck supply store at approx. 93 cents an INCH. This is good stuff. Bent is cheaper (less expensive) but i had a wierd bend.
