I realize titanium is expensive, but I was wondering how much making a titanium exhaust really costs. There's no place in the states I can find that manufactures them, not to mention for our cars... So where do the shops overseas get the piping? Is it even available over here? I like the 10Lb weight of the PitroadM exhaust but a 1400 dollar price tag is slightly cost prohibitive...

Are any different methods required when bending or welding titanium?

Any hook ups on Ti mufflers?

The biggest I see that they go to is 2 inches... Anyone know where you can get this in 3" ID?

TTT Thanks hanz, found lots of great info on Ti and welding it and shaping it, and got some sick twisted and insanely expensive ideas... But couldn't manage to find a hard and fast rough estimate on the cost of 3" Ti piping if it was purchased in say.... 10-20 foot sections...


Oh and TTT

What wall thickness would you want? Are you looking for 1 piece or 10 this will probably come in random length sections.
Let me know and I'll get a price for you.

I'm not sure what thickness I want. I'm not farmilliar enough with Ti properties.... Thick enough to make an exhaust out of. And I'm considering talking to a shop around here and seeing if they can weld Ti and do it well... If so I might talk to them about getting a run of 20 or so units made and have a group buy on Ti exhausts...
How much would you be looking at per foot? The prices I'm seeing so far ar from 35-45 a foot for 3" ID piping.

As for the muffler. I couldn't find a Ti one on borlas web page. What's it called?
