I have done it on a few after market 2t and 4t header pipes with good success. And no big deal! It is almost to easy. I am a plumber, bozos leaving garden hoses hooked up in the winter is a gold mine for me and an easy fix. On the exhaust pipes, the tape is the safety valve, it pops off. Now grant it, if the pipe has cracks or other weak spots you may have issues. The performance gains in getting them dents out overshadows the fact it may need to be replaced. Evilbay is a click away.

I put together a "how to" video showing how to build a clamp system that bolts to your expansion chamber and allows you to pressurize the tank. Pressurizing the tank (to around 40-50 Psi) and applying heat to the dents pops them out quite nicely, I was really surprised! I had some pretty gnarly dents on my expansion chamber and using this process make the tank look almost new!


I know this method has been around for awhile but there's not to many in depth video regarding the progress so I thought id throw one together. Hope it helps!
