    I guess I need input from more guys building what I'm going to build, no offense but I know a lot of racers do use this material but I just wanted feedback from people that knew more about this area.
    Multiple welds in headers are "cool" so keep in mind that you can always use fittings for the el section. As far as 16ga, it might be the best thickness to use due to expansion/contraction issues. Thicker gauges will be stronger but won't "give".

    If you have the ability to make it, you will have the ability to repair it if it breaks...but I'd still put some support on it.

    I don't know why somebody thinks they need 4" exhaust on a 4cylinder engine. All they will be doing is slowing down the exhaust flow and getting the downpipe and engine bay a lot hotter than otherwise.
