what the fuck 3 U Bends??? where are you going to shoot the exhaust out of your front end??? i thought it was the less bends and the least degrees the better the flow.... why would you wanna bend the tubes in a 180 deg...

He's talking about ordering 180 degree bends so the muffler shop can cut them to the angle they need. This is the only way to get a mandrel bent exhaust in a lot of places since machines to make mandrel bends are so expensive.

dats cool but you should really consider getting it custom done.. instead of buying the U's and then cutting and rewelding.. it is just gonna be a disaster...
