If you go to BJB get some of their silicone for your molds.
The exhaust part you're making will "pull" much easier out of a silicone mold..

what I thought was the rite size turned out to be an inch to long ... less of course I drop a manifold and go with a 10 cylinder engine ... guess I'll start all over with a smaller manifold...
