I will second the vote of confidence on the Burns merge collectors and they are a good supplier of the tubing for the rest of the system as well. Systems made with their raw materials are often a work of art. They make good racing mufflers as well, but for sure their merge collectors are very special.

I may get the merge collector from Burns, but as for the tubing - any material I get from Burns has to be shipped and duties paid on it so I may have to source here in NZ. Can you guys recommend a grade and wall thickness of tubing to use?

Any votes for thickness of tubing? 1.2mm or 1.6mm 304 stainless steel

Started playig with shapes and twists, keeping it to Burns spec usung the green string in the pics. Has lengths marked on it with knots. Finding out I like 1/8 pie cuts. Can bend and twist. CLR66mm. Using pipe clamps to hold the pieces together. Drilled holes in the pipe clamps as a visual ref for positioning, and can spot weld where the holes are.
