Default WTB: 2-3/8" x .062 Mild Steel Exhaust Tubing

Called every so called "high performance exhaust shop" in the STL metro area.

Nobody has 2-3/8 exhaust tubing.

Summit only has it in stainless.

SPD Exhaust is out in Cali, and would charge me more to ship it than than the material cost would be (I know, I just got gouged by them on shipping two weeks ago).

Anyone know where I can get some from somewhere in the Midwest?

I checked McMaster-Carr for S&G, but they didn't have it either.

I want 8 feet total. Can be cut in 1/2. I could get away with 6 feet total (again, can be cut in half) if need be. I'd just prefer a little extra, just in case.

I wound up cutting up my old headers and getting the straight pieces out I needed. Should have just enough to do the other side.
