Mandrel Bent exhaust pipes

Is there any significant difference in pipes that are Mandrel bent vs. regular bent for the WK? I am not using my 2006 Overland as a street racing machine. Just wondering if it is worth the extra coin. TIA!

one has Perfect radius bends inside and out

other is prob perfect bent out side but the inside suffers around the corners also

The mandrel allows the exhaust pipes to be bent into smooth curves without undesirable creasing, kinking, or collapsing.

Understood about the capabilites difference. Is it worth the extra coin for the Mandrel?

Depends on the entire exhaust system.......... N/A application thats tuned and making power on the ragged edge.....Yes. Normal street car, no...atleast nothing justifing the COST. So for a stock WK with just exhaust... save your money. if your going for head, cams, supercharger, etc.... then get the mandrel bent pipe.

If your using this for an intake setup, YES it is very important because of the MAF meter........

TURBO setup, ABSOLUTELY...... Doesn't matter if it is stock or modded.

Your stock tailpipe is roughly 2.75" diameter and is mandrel bent. If it's not in the budget to do a full 3" catback, just change out the muffler and keep your stock tailpipe as it's a very nice piece.
