    I'm working on a custon and had a question about making an exhaust. Its a
    v-4 and Instead of bending the pipes I was going to cut the pipes at 45's
    and weld it together. I know it will disrupt exhaust flow, but wouldnt it
    also allow me to not run baffles because it would give a little

  2. I'd think that it would disrupt the exhaust a lot, but it won't do as
    much to cut the noise. Hooker (among others) sells some bent pieces
    that are intended to be cut up and welded into headers. They're not
    terribly expensive either.

    Why don't you put baffles in anyway and make the world a little be nicer place?
