    HEADER TUBE LENGTH

    I am building a set of headers and am wondering what is the correct way of measuring the primary header tube length.If you measure the outside of a bend it is longer,measure the inside of the bend it is shorter,put the tape measure through the tube it takes the shortest route through the tube so what is the right way of getting the correct length.Thanks
