Universal Aluminum Pipe by AEM®. Fabricate your own custom exhaust system with prebent tubes from aFe. These mandrel-bent tubes have a uniform inside diameter for the best exhaust flow.
- Constant inside diameter
- Wrinkle-free bends
- 0.065” thick tubing
Sometimes you simply have to customize your exhaust system, or even fabricate your own. It’s easy enough to weld a couple pipes together, but bending pipe takes a specialized machine. Conventional muffler pipe benders substantially reduce the inside diameter of the pipe as they bend it, which can severely reduce exhaust flow. These pipes are bent on a mandrel-bending machine, which keeps a piece of bar stock inside the pipe as it’s drawn around the die, keeping the tubing walls from crushing. The result is a piece of tubing with a constant inside diameter and no wrinkles in the metal. Crafted, from standard aluminized steel muffler tubing, these bends and pipes will let you route your exhaust out of the engine and away from your vehicle without excess backpressure.
John Concialdi and Bob Sullivan co founded AEM in 1987 as a tuning performance shop in Compton California. Both men had extensive technical backgrounds in engines and engine airflow, and in a short time AEM became the go-to company for performance modifications. By 1993, when the company relocated to Gardena California, it had become commonplace to see cars wearing the bright yellow AEM logo winning races. AEM tirelessly dyno tested and worked closely with racers and auto manufacturers in an effort to understand intake energy dynamics. This resulted in the sale of their first air intake kit in 1994. AEM can boast a number of firsts and unique products: They’re the first manufacturer to make an intake system with specific tube lengths and diameters to take advantage of pressure waves in the inlet tract; they developed the first dual chamber intake kit; they designed an air bypass valve to prevent hydro-lock should the air filter ingest water; and they created one of the first hybrid intake systems for modified cars. AEM continues to create innovative products to help you get more power from your car.
