johnsongrass1 Thanks everyone. I found a exhaust shop to "swag" the ends of the tubes I need for a ten spot. I'm replacing the exhaust with a headers and mandrel bend pipes bought from Summit Racing for my truck. Of course that means I gotta change engine too. Seems the exhaust is a little to big now.

BOBCRMAN@aol.com The cheap ones just push out marks. The expensive ones, some are large fine thread, some are hydraulic assist. Will move some metal...

Exhaust tools

The expander just rounds out an existing pipe..If you need to make the connections then you will need what is called an exhaust pipe Swage which does expand the pipe to allow a slip fit..Different terminolgy..different tool...

Exhaust Pipe Expander

Anyone use one before, Do they actually expand pipe enough to slip over another or just push out clamp marks?
